Snowstorms and Air Conditioners Posted March 17, 2016 Cooling, Service We haven’t completely gotten through winter in Naples just yet. Mother Nature has provided us with a few nice days, but she’s always prepped to remind us that she’s in full control. 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, diminishing its performance when the temperatures start to warm up for the season. Not to mention it can keep a high-efficiency system from performing as such. The situation could become an even larger problem too if you don’t prepare for it with an annual air conditioner service appointment. There are steps you can take as a homeowner to help your air conditioner operate correctly even though snow has fallen or could fall in the approaching days and weeks. Ensure you have 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 could have accumulated throughout the winter. Contrary to what you may think, covering your air conditioner could end up doing more damage than you’d expect. A covered air conditioner could 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 colder temperatures, you can’t count out the possibility of weather that can change the performance of your air conditioner. At Speedy Air Conditioning in Naples, we are always available to take a look at any areas around your home or answer any of your questions, whether they’re in regards to air conditioner service or purchasing a new system.
