Include a Cover as Part of Your Fall Air Conditioner Maintenance

As we head into fall, you may be focused on making sure your furnace is ready to use, but don’t forget about your air conditioner. To ensure your air conditioner is protected over the winter and ready use again in the spring, it’s important to do some end-of-season maintenance. In addition to giving your air conditioner a thorough cleaning, you protect it with an air conditioner cover.

When summer heat hits full force, your air conditioner becomes your most prized possession. To keep it working reliably year after year, it’s important to protect it over the winter off season. Snow, ice, and sleet can cause your air conditioner’s components to become corroded and rusted. In addition, debris such as leaves and twigs can deteriorate the efficiency of your air conditioner.

Covering your air conditioner during the winter months can benefit your air conditioner in a number of ways. A cover will help keep the condensing coil clean and free of debris. This will allow your unit to run at optimal efficiency, which will reduce your energy bills and lessen stress on your air conditioner.
Protecting your air conditioner from weather and debris will also reduce your maintenance costs and help prevent the need for costly repairs. Using a cover will also cut down the time you need to spend cleaning and preparing your air conditioner in the spring.

Generic air conditioner covers are readily available, but because they often don’t fit properly, they can do more harm than good.

Give Overland Park Heating and Cooling a call and let us help you find the right cover to keep your air conditioner protected until spring.
