Don't Neglect Your Air Conditioner

November 16, 2015

While the weather is still changing in Canada, 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 couple simple steps before the temperatures drop for good, you can help ensure your air conditioner is ready to perform well when it heats up again.

  1. Now is the time to consider scheduling regular air conditioner service. Do it while it’s still reasonable, and not when the temperatures drop in Canada. Arranging a Precision Tune-Up now can help you take on a host of essential air conditioner service and safety checks if needed, like the inspection of electrical connections, equipment cleaning and switching out your air filter —just to name a couple.

  2. Ponder 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 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 doing 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 three tips to help you get your air conditioner ready for less work 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.
