Don't Neglect Your Air Conditioner

November 16, 2015

While the temperature is still changing in Kansas City, 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 basic steps before the temperatures drop one last time, you can help be sure your air conditioner is ready to perform well when it gets warm again.

  1. Now is the time to think about scheduling routine air conditioner service. Do it while it’s still mild, and not when the temperatures drop in Kansas City. Scheduling a Precision Tune-Up now can help you take on a host of essential air conditioner service and safety checks if needed, like the inspection of electrical connections, equipment cleaning and switching out your air filter —just to name a few.

  2. Consider adding foam pipe covers for any of your unprotected exterior pipes. Foam pipe covers can be a big help in preventing your pipes from freezing when the temperatures drop.

  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 work to keep two to three feet of space around the air conditioner uninhibited from debris.

These are just a couple tips to help you get your air conditioner ready for less work this season. With seasons transitioning, it’s crucial to keep your unused system in mind so that it can start strong when you commence utilizing it when it gets warmer.
