Snowstorms and Air Conditioners

We haven’t completely made it through winter in West Palm Beach just yet. Mother Nature has provided us with a few nice days, but she’s always ready 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 may bury your air conditioner in the snow, hindering its performance when the temperatures start to warm up for the season. Not to mention it can keep a high-efficiency system from performing as such. The situation could become an even greater 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 work correctly even though snow has fallen or could fall in the upcoming days and weeks.

  1. Keep a 3-foot/1-meter clearance around your air conditioner. Check the area regularly to make sure that it stays clear and that there are no snow drifts or piles of debris that might have accumulated throughout the winter.
  2. Contrary to what you may think, putting a cover over your air conditioner could end up doing more damage than you’d expect. A covered air conditioner may 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 West Palm Beach will probably fluctuate up and down over the last few days of colder temperatures, you can’t count out the possibility of weather that can alter the performance of your air conditioner. At Kyzar Air Conditioning Inc in West Palm Beach, we are always available to take a look at any areas around your home or answer any of your questions, whether they’re about air conditioner service or purchasing a new system.
