Don't Neglect Your Air Conditioner

November 16, 2015

While the weather is still dropping in Albany, it’s about time to get your air conditioner ready for the off season. Whether it’s with air conditioner service or by taking a couple simple steps before the temperatures drop for the last time, you can help make sure your air conditioner is primed to perform correctly when it heats up again.

  1. Now is the time to think about arranging annual air conditioner service. Do it while it’s still reasonable, and not when the temperatures drop in Albany. Arranging a Precision Tune-Up now can help you take on a host of crucial air conditioner service and safety checks if needed, such as the inspection of electrical connections, equipment cleaning and switching out your air filter —just to name a couple.

  2. Consider adding foam pipe covers for any of your uncovered exterior pipes. Foam pipe covers can be a big help in saving your pipes from freezing when the temperatures go down.

  3. Clear the area around 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 work to keep two to three feet of space around the air conditioner clear from debris.

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