Snowstorms and Air Conditioners

Cooling
Service

We haven’t completely escaped winter in Osceola County just yet. Mother Nature has provided us with a few nice days, but she’s always prepared to remind us that she’s in full control. 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 begin to 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 larger problem too if you don’t plan for it with an annual air conditioner service appointment.

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

  1. Keep a 3-foot/1-meter clearance around your air conditioner. Inspect the area frequently to be sure that it stays clear and that there are no snow drifts or piles of debris that may have accumulated throughout the winter.
  2. Contrary to what you may think, placing a cover over your air conditioner could 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 Osceola County will more than likely fluctuate up and down over the last few days of winter, you can’t count out the possibility of weather that can change the performance of your air conditioner. At Osceola Air, LLC in Osceola County, we are always available to inspect any areas around your home or answer any of your questions, whether they’re in regards to air conditioner service or adding a new system. Keeping you and your family safe and comfortable is our top priority. Give us a call at 407-908-8651 or simply set up an appointment with us online to find out more information.
