Don't Neglect Your Air Conditioner

November 16, 2015

While the environment is still changing in Gaithersburg, it’s about time to think about preparing your air conditioner for the off season. Whether it’s with air conditioner service or by taking a few simple steps before the temperatures drop for the last time, you can help be sure your air conditioner is primed to perform correctly when it warms up again.

  1. Now is the time to ponder arranging regular air conditioner service. Do it while it’s still mild, and not when the temperatures drop in Gaithersburg. Setting up a Precision Tune-Up now can help you handle a number of essential 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 few.

  2. Consider adding foam pipe covers for any of your unprotected exterior pipes. Foam pipe covers may be a big help in saving your pipes from freezing when the temperatures go down.

  3. Clear the area around your air conditioner to be sure there isn’t debris or leaves that could harm the performance of your air conditioner or the technician performing 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 couple tips to help you get your air conditioner ready for some off time this year. With seasons transitioning, it’s important to keep your unused system in mind so that it can start strong when you begin utilizing it when it gets warmer.
