Don't Neglect Your Air Conditioner

November 16, 2015

While the environment is still dropping in Roanoke, it’s about time to get your air conditioner ready for the off season. Whether it’s with air conditioner service or by taking a few basic steps before the temperatures drop for the last time, you can help ensure your air conditioner is prepped to perform correctly when it warms up again.

  1. Now is the time to consider arranging annual air conditioner service. Do it while it’s still comfortable, and not when the temperatures drop in Roanoke. Arranging a Precision Tune-Up now can help you take care of a number of essential 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 handful.

  2. Ponder adding foam pipe covers for any of your unprotected exterior pipes. Foam pipe covers could be a big help in preventing your pipes from freezing when the temperatures drop.

  3. Clear the area surrounding your air conditioner to ensure there isn’t debris or leaves that could diminish the performance of your air conditioner or the technician 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 uninhibited from debris.

These are just a few tips to help you get your air conditioner ready for some downtime this season. With seasons transitioning, it’s crucial to keep your unused system in mind so that it can start strong when you commence utilizing it when it heats up.
