Before your system reaches the point of needing an AC replacement service in Clifton Park, NY we would love to share with you some tips on how to maintain your AC during the next winter:
Do regular checks
Chances are unlikely that your air conditioner unit would have created irreparable damage during the time when you aren’t using it. However, if any random objects such as leaves or branches have fallen into the system it’s always good practice to keep an eye on it. It’s important to remember that air conditioners usually are built to last in low temperatures, but if leaves or humidity build up it may cause future issues which will require professional attention.
Invest in protection
If your air conditioner is an external unit and remains outside you should seriously consider getting it some winter attire. We recommend material that is preferably water resistant and has a certain level of thickness. You can be assured that humidity won’t easily make it’s way into the system and falling objects won’t fall in or damage the system. It will also deter any unfriendly animals making a new home in there. Our furry friends need protection during the cold months but they may damage your AC unit or accidentally make objects fall inside which will hurt your bank account in the future.
Switch it off
We recommend that when the weather starts to go into it’s low temperatures and no longer need to use your air conditioner unit you should switch the entire system off. Not only will it save you money on your energy costs but it will also help to extend your AC’s lifespan by giving it a well-deserved rest.
Trust the experts
With most advanced technical situations that you aren’t entirely sure about, you should never attempt to fix or clean an air conditioning unit without the help of a professional. Fortunately, a modern day AC system is built to last but no matter how great it is accidents and failures can happen when you least suspect it.
