Don't Neglect Your Air Conditioner

November 16, 2015

While the environment is still dropping in Gaithersburg, it’s about time to prep your air conditioner 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 properly when it warms up again.

  1. Now is the time to ponder arranging annual air conditioner service. Do it while it’s still comfortable, and not when the temperatures drop in Gaithersburg. Setting up a Precision Tune-Up now can help you take care of a number of critical air conditioner service and safety checks if needed, like the inspection of electrical connections, equipment cleaning and changing your air filter —just to name a couple.

  2. Think about adding foam pipe covers for any of your exposed 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 surrounding your air conditioner to be sure there isn’t debris or leaves that could harm 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 uninhibited from debris.

These are just a few tips to help you get your air conditioner ready for some off time this season. With seasons changing, it’s critical to keep your unused system in mind so that it can start strong when you begin utilizing it when it warms up.
