Don't Neglect Your Air Conditioner

November 16, 2015

While the environment is still changing in Charleston, 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 easy steps before the temperatures drop for good, you can help be sure your air conditioner is ready to perform correctly when it warms up again.

  1. Now is the time to think about scheduling annual air conditioner service. Do it while it’s still comfortable, and not when the temperatures drop in Charleston. Arranging a Precision Tune-Up now can help you take on a variety of critical air conditioner service and safety checks if needed, including 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 exposed exterior pipes. Foam pipe covers can 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 free from debris.

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