During the upcoming winter, you may want to winterize your air conditioning unit to protect it from the cold weather, snow and ice.  A few things can be done to keep it free of rust and in top working condition.

Use a hose to remove bugs, dirt, grass and leaves from the unit.  allow it to dry.

Insulate exterior exposed pipes with foam pipe covers to insulate them and protect them from freezing temperatures.

Cover the HVAC unit with a vinyl or plastic waterproof cover, secure it with bungee cords to keep it secure.

Regularly clear water, ice and snow from the unit during the winter.

Air Conditioning Tip

It’s no secret that summer cooling costs can quickly break the bank. In addition to ensuring your air conditioner is the correct size, reducing energy costs can be done in a variety of ways. It is recommended that once you turn your air conditioner on, you leave it on. Flipping it from on to off and back again is a waste of energy, and will cost you money. In addition to leaving the AC on, we recommend keeping the fan on your unit turned on as well. The fan is what distributes air throughout your home, creating an even cycle of air flow. Moving the air continuously prevents your unit from turning off and on frequently and creates a higher indoor air quality which in the long run saves you money.
