Don't Neglect Your Air Conditioner

November 16, 2015

While the weather is still changing in Austin, 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 simple steps before the temperatures drop for good, you can help make sure your air conditioner is ready to perform correctly when it warms up again.

  1. Now is the time to ponder scheduling routine air conditioner service. Do it while it’s still mild, and not when the temperatures drop in Austin. Scheduling a Precision Tune-Up now can help you take on a number of critical 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. Think about adding foam pipe covers for any of your unprotected exterior pipes. Foam pipe covers may be a big help in protecting 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 inhibit the performance of your air conditioner or the technician performing 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 uninhibited from debris.

These are just a couple tips to help you get your air conditioner ready for some off time this time of year. With seasons shifting, it’s critical to keep your unused system in mind so that it can start strong when you start utilizing it when it gets warmer.
