Snowstorms and Air Conditioners

Cooling
Service

We haven’t completely made it through winter in Anaheim just yet. Mother Nature may have a few nice days, but she’s always prepped to remind us that she’s the boss. So when she does finally let up and it starts to warm up, read below so you won’t want to have to unexpectedly call a repairman out out for air conditioner service.

Heavy snowfall could bury your air conditioner in the snow, hindering its performance when the temperatures finally warm up for the season. Not to mention it can hinder a high-efficiency system from running as such. The situation could become an even bigger problem too if you don’t prepare for it with an annual air conditioner service appointment.

There are things you can do as a homeowner to help your air conditioner run correctly even though snow has fallen or could fall in the upcoming days and weeks.

  1. Ensure you have a 3-foot/1-meter clearance around your air conditioner. Check the area frequently to be sure that it stays clear and that there are no snow drifts or piles of debris that might have accumulated through the winter.
  2. Contrary to what you may think, placing a cover over your air conditioner may end up doing more damage than you’d expect. A covered air conditioner can be inviting for rodents looking for shelter from the weather and start to call it home, leading to damage to the system as they roam about.

While the weather in Anaheim will more than likely swing up and down over the last few days of colder temperatures, you can’t count out the probability of weather that can change the performance of your air conditioner.
