Don't Neglect Your Air Conditioner

November 16, 2015

While the temperature is still fluxuating in Buffalo, 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 handful of easy steps before the temperatures drop one last time, you can help be sure your air conditioner is ready to perform well when it warms up again.

  1. Now is the time to ponder arranging annual air conditioner service. Do it while it’s still mild, and not when the temperatures drop in Buffalo. Scheduling a Precision Tune-Up now can help you handle a variety 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 handful.

  2. Think about adding foam pipe covers for any of your exposed exterior pipes. Foam pipe covers can be a big help in protecting your pipes from freezing when the temperatures go down.

  3. Clear the area surrounding your air conditioner to be sure there isn’t debris or leaves that could inhibit the performance of your air conditioner or the technician completing 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 season. With seasons transitioning, it’s important to keep your unused system in mind so that it can start strong when you begin utilizing it when it heats up.
