While the weather is still changing 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 ensure your air conditioner is prepped to perform properly when it heats up again.
- Now is the time to think about arranging air conditioner seasonal maintenance. Do it while it’s still mild, and not when the temperatures drop in Houston. Scheduling a Precision Tune-Up now can help you take care of a variety 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. You can schedule it while calling for your yearly furnace check up.
- Ponder adding foam pipe covers for any of your uncovered exterior pipes. Foam pipe covers may be a big help in protecting your pipes from freezing when the temperatures drop.
- Clear the area near your air conditioner to ensure there isn’t debris or leaves that could inhibit the performance of your air conditioner or the air conditioner technicians doing your air conditioner service. This is something you can do throughout the year, so aim 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 downtime this season. With seasons changing, it’s critical to keep your unused system in mind so that it can start strong when you commence utilizing it when it gets warmer.
