Don't Neglect Your Air Conditioner

November 16, 2015

While the temperature is still fluxuating in Raleigh, it’s about time to prep your air conditioner for the off season. Whether it’s with air conditioner service or by taking a few easy steps before the temperatures drop one last time, you can help be sure your air conditioner is prepped to perform correctly when it heats up again.

  1. Now is the time to consider scheduling routine air conditioner service. Do it while it’s still comfortable, and not when the temperatures drop in Raleigh. Arranging a Precision Tune-Up now can help you take on a host of critical air conditioner service and safety checks if needed, including the inspection of electrical connections, equipment cleaning and changing your air filter —just to name a handful.

  2. Think about 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 near your air conditioner to be 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 aim 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 some downtime this year. With seasons changing, it’s important to keep your unused system in mind so that it can start strong when you start utilizing it when it heats up.
