Don't Neglect Your Air Conditioner

November 16, 2015

While the temperature is still fluxuating in Richmond, 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 couple simple steps before the temperatures drop one last time, you can help ensure your air conditioner is primed to perform properly when it heats up again.

  1. Now is the time to think about setting up routine air conditioner service. Do it while it’s still mild, and not when the temperatures drop in Richmond. Scheduling a Precision Tune-Up now can help you take on a variety of critical air conditioner service and safety checks if needed, such as the inspection of electrical connections, equipment cleaning and switching out your air filter —just to name a couple.

  2. Think about adding foam pipe covers for any of your uncovered exterior pipes. Foam pipe covers may be a big help in protecting your pipes from freezing when the temperatures go down.

  3. Clear the area around your air conditioner to make sure there isn’t debris or leaves that could diminish 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 free from debris.

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