Snowstorms and Air Conditioners

March 17, 2016

We haven’t completely made it through winter in Muldrow just yet. Mother Nature may have a few nice days, but she’s always prepped 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 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 plan 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.

  1. 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 accumulated through the winter.
  2. Contrary to what you may think, placing a cover over 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, possibly meaning damage to the system as they roam about.

While the weather in Muldrow will most likely swing up and down over the last few days of cold weather, you can’t count out the probability of weather that can impact the performance of your air conditioner. At Air Service Co. in Muldrow, 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 top priority. Give us a call at 918-212-8943 to find out more information.
