We haven’t completely escaped winter in Moline just yet. Mother Nature has provided us with a few nice days, but she’s always ready to remind us that she’s the boss. 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 a repairman out out for air conditioner service.
Heavy snowfall can bury your air conditioner in the snow, hindering its performance when the temperatures finally warm up for the season. Not to mention it can inhibit a high-efficiency system from performing as such. The situation could become an even greater 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 operate properly even though snow has fallen or could fall in the coming days and weeks.
- Ensure you have a 3-foot/1-meter clearance around your air conditioner. Walk around the area frequently to be sure that it stays clear and that there are no snow drifts or piles of debris that could have piled up during the winter.
- Contrary to what you may think, covering your air conditioner might end up doing more damage than you’d expect. A covered air conditioner can be inviting for rodents looking for shelter from the weather and start to call it home, causing damage to the system as they roam about.
While the weather in Moline will more than likely go up and down over the last few days of winter, you can’t count out the possibility of weather that can alter the performance of your air conditioner.
