We haven’t completely gotten through winter in Chadron just yet. Mother Nature may have 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 us for out for air conditioner service.
Heavy snowfall may bury your air conditioner in the snow, hindering 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 bigger problem too if you don’t prepare for it with an annual air conditioner service appointment.
There are things you can do as a homeowner to help your air conditioner work correctly even though snow has fallen or could fall in the approaching days and weeks.
- Keep a 3-foot/1-meter clearance around your air conditioner. Check the area routinely to be sure that it stays clear and that there are no snow drifts or piles of debris that might have piled up throughout the winter.
- Contrary to what you may think, putting a cover over your air conditioner could end up doing more damage than you’d expect. A covered air conditioner may 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 Chadron will more than likely swing up and down over the last few days of cold weather, you can’t count out the chance of weather that can change the performance of your air conditioner.
