Don't Neglect Your Air Conditioner

November 16, 2015

While the weather is still dropping in Houston, it’s about time to prep 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 one last time, you can help ensure your air conditioner is primed to perform correctly when it gets warm again.

  1. Now is the time to ponder setting up routine air conditioner service. Do it while it’s still mild, and not when the temperatures drop in Houston. Scheduling a Precision Tune-Up now can help you take care of a variety of critical air conditioner service and safety checks if needed, including the inspection of electrical connections, equipment cleaning and changing your air filter —just to name a few.

  2. Ponder adding foam pipe covers for any of your exposed exterior pipes. Foam pipe covers may be a big help in saving your pipes from freezing when the temperatures change.

  3. Clear the area near your air conditioner to make sure there isn’t debris or leaves that could diminish 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 free from debris.

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