We haven’t completely escaped winter in Lodi just yet. Mother Nature has provided us with a few nice days, but she’s always prepared to remind us that she’s in full control. 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 finally warm up for the season. Not to mention it can hinder a high-efficiency system from running 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 preparations you can do as a homeowner to help your air conditioner run properly even though snow has fallen or could fall in the upcoming days and weeks.
- Keep a 3-foot/1-meter clearance around your air conditioner. Inspect the area regularly to ensure that it stays clear and that there are no snow drifts or piles of debris that could have piled up throughout the winter.
- Contrary to what you may think, putting a cover over your air conditioner might end up doing more damage than you’d expect. A covered air conditioner could be inviting for rodents looking for shelter from the weather and start to call it home, possibly meaning damage to the system as they roam about.
While the weather in Lodi will most likely fluctuate up and down over the last few days of colder temperatures, you can’t count out the chance of weather that can alter the performance of your air conditioner. At Tokay Heating and Air Conditioning in Lodi, we are always available to inspect any areas around your home or answer any of your questions, whether they’re related to air conditioner service or adding a new system. Keeping you and your family safe and comfortable is our number one priority. Give us a call at 209-257-3156 to get more information.
