Don't Neglect Your Air Conditioner

November 16, 2015

While the weather is still changing in Birmingham, 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 basic steps before the temperatures drop one last time, you can help ensure your air conditioner is primed to perform properly when it warms up again.

  1. Now is the time to think about scheduling routine air conditioner service. Do it while it’s still mild, and not when the temperatures drop in Birmingham. Arranging a Precision Tune-Up now can help you take on a host of critical air conditioner service and safety checks if needed, such as the inspection of electrical connections, equipment cleaning and changing your air filter —just to name a couple.

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

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

These are just three tips to help you get your air conditioner ready for some off time this time of year. 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 heats up.
