Don't Neglect Your Air Conditioner

November 16, 2015

While the temperature is still fluxuating in Calgary, 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 handful of simple steps before the temperatures drop for good, you can help ensure your air conditioner is prepped to perform correctly when it gets warm again.

  1. Now is the time to think about setting up regular air conditioner service. Do it while it’s still reasonable, and not when the temperatures drop in Calgary. Setting up a Precision Tune-Up now can help you take care of a host of essential 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 handful.

  2. Consider adding foam pipe covers for any of your uncovered 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 make sure there isn’t debris or leaves that could inhibit the performance of your air conditioner or the technician performing 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 clear 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 important to keep your unused system in mind so that it can start strong when you begin utilizing it when it heats up.
