Don't Neglect Your Air Conditioner

November 16, 2015

While the weather is still fluxuating in Columbia, it’s about time to think about preparing your air conditioner for the off season. Whether it’s with air conditioner service or by taking a few easy steps before the temperatures drop one last time, you can help make sure your air conditioner is ready to perform correctly when it heats up again.

  1. Now is the time to ponder scheduling regular air conditioner service. Do it while it’s still reasonable, and not when the temperatures drop in Columbia. Arranging a Precision Tune-Up now can help you take care of a number of essential air conditioner service and safety checks if needed, including the inspection of electrical connections, equipment cleaning and switching out your air filter —just to name a few.

  2. Think about adding foam pipe covers for any of your uncovered exterior pipes. Foam pipe covers may be a big help in saving your pipes from freezing when the temperatures change.

  3. Clear the area near your air conditioner to be sure there isn’t debris or leaves that could diminish the performance of your air conditioner or the technician doing your air conditioner service. This is something you can do throughout the year, so work to keep two to three feet of space around the air conditioner uninhibited from debris.

These are just three tips to help you get your air conditioner ready for some downtime this year. With seasons shifting, it’s crucial to keep your unused system in mind so that it can start strong when you begin utilizing it when it heats up.
