We haven’t completely made it through winter in Tomball just yet. Mother Nature has given us a few nice days, but she’s always ready to remind us that she’s in charge. So when she does finally let up and it starts to warm up, read below so you won’t want to have to unexpectedly call us for out for air conditioner service.
Heavy snowfall may bury your air conditioner in the snow, diminishing its performance when the temperatures begin to warm up for the season. Not to mention it can hinder a high-efficiency system from performing as such. The situation could become an even larger problem too if you don’t prep for it with an annual air conditioner service appointment.
There are steps you can take as a homeowner to help your air conditioner work correctly even though snow has fallen or could fall in the upcoming days and weeks.
- Maintain a 3-foot/1-meter clearance around your air conditioner. Check the area frequently to make sure that it stays clear and that there are no snow drifts or piles of debris that could have piled up during the winter.
- Contrary to what you may think, putting a cover over your air conditioner may end up doing more damage than you’d expect. A covered air conditioner can be inviting for rodents looking for shelter from the weather and start to call it home, causing damage to the system as they roam about.
While the weather in Tomball will most likely swing up and down over the last few days of cold weather, you can’t count out the chance of weather that can alter the performance of your air conditioner.
