We haven’t completely escaped winter in Naples 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 a professional out for air conditioner service.
Heavy snowfall could bury your air conditioner in the snow, hindering its performance when the temperatures start to 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 bigger problem too if you don’t plan for it with an annual air conditioner service appointment.
There are steps you can take as a homeowner to help your air conditioner work correctly even though snow has fallen or could fall in the coming days and weeks.
- Maintain a 3-foot/1-meter clearance around your air conditioner. Check the area frequently to ensure that it stays clear and that there are no snow drifts or piles of debris that might have accumulated during the winter.
- Contrary to what you may think, covering your air conditioner may 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, causing damage to the system as they roam about.
While the weather in Naples will more than likely swing up and down over the last few days of winter, you can’t count out the probability of weather that can change the performance of your air conditioner.
