How To Protect Your Outside Cooling Unit In The Wintertime

Did you know that it’s important to make sure that your air conditioning unit is properly protected after switching from cool air to your heater? Affordable Service Plumbing, Heating, A/C, and Electric has learned a few tricks and tips along the way that helps prevent damage. In the winter, snow accumulation, falling ice, and debris are a few of the more common occurrences that can cause damage. Often, this damage isn’t seen until it’s time to turn your unit on in the Spring.

To protect your air conditioning unit from damage such as ice dams breaking, icicles falling, as well as leaves and build up or dirt in the fan, you can purchase a material that is meant for the unit and is breathable. You could install a wood awning above your unit if your unit is not on the roof. You can plant shrubs and bushes around your A/C unit to prevent snow accumulation to ensure proper air flow. Do you have a large house that requires more than one a/c unit and more than one furnace? You may be tempted to cover your exterior condenser unit to protect it during the winter months, but first make sure it's not a heat pump that uses the same condenser to heat your home.

We can often forget to continue to take care of these things when we aren’t continuously using them, but these are steps that make it easier and give you peace of mind when it comes to making sure your unit is well taken care of during the winter. Affordable Service Plumbing, Heating, A/C, and Electric is here to help!
