Don't Neglect Your Air Conditioner

November 16, 2015

While the weather is still dropping in Pierre, 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 few simple steps before the temperatures drop one last time, you can help make sure your air conditioner is ready to perform well 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 Pierre. Setting up a Precision Tune-Up now can help you handle a number of critical 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 handful.

  2. Consider adding foam pipe covers for any of your uncovered exterior pipes. Foam pipe covers may be a big help in protecting 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 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 clear from debris.

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