Don't Neglect Your Air Conditioner

November 16, 2015

While the environment is still changing in Birmingham, it’s about time to prep 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 correctly when it heats up again.

  1. Now is the time to consider setting up 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 variety of critical air conditioner service and safety checks if needed, including the inspection of electrical connections, equipment cleaning and swapping out 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 drop.

  3. Clear the area around your air conditioner to make sure there isn’t debris or leaves that could harm 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 downtime this time of year. With seasons changing, it’s important to keep your unused system in mind so that it can start strong when you commence utilizing it when it heats up.
