Don't Neglect Your Air Conditioner

November 16, 2015

While the weather is still dropping in Houston, 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 simple steps before the temperatures drop for good, you can help make sure your air conditioner is prepped to perform correctly when it warms up again.

  1. Now is the time to think about arranging annual air conditioner service. Do it while it’s still comfortable, and not when the temperatures drop in Houston. Scheduling a Precision Tune-Up now can help you take care of a host of crucial air conditioner service and safety checks if needed, like the inspection of electrical connections, equipment cleaning and switching out your air filter —just to name a handful.

  2. Ponder adding foam pipe covers for any of your uncovered exterior pipes. Foam pipe covers may be a big help in preventing your pipes from freezing when the temperatures drop.

  3. Clear the area near your air conditioner to make sure there isn’t debris or leaves that could inhibit the performance of your air conditioner or the technician performing 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 free from debris.

These are just a few tips to help you get your air conditioner ready for some off time this season. With seasons transitioning, it’s critical to keep your unused system in mind so that it can start strong when you commence utilizing it when it warms up.
