Should I Winterize My Air Conditioning Unit When the Weather Changes?

When the weather turns colder, there are thing we must do to prepare our homes for the winter. One of your winterizing tasks will be to make sure your Air Conditioning unit is ready for the cold weather so we can increase it’s life and cut down on cold drafts throughout your home. One of your main goals will be to protected your central air conditioner from snow and other winter precipitation.

Seal Your Air Conditioning Vents

Sealing the vents will stop cold drafts throughout your home and is one of the man reasons you should winterize your Northern Kentucky HVAC equipment. Keeping the drafts out will improve the efficiency of your furnace during the colder months which will save you money in utilities.  You will also be extending the life of your air conditioner.

Remove the Leaves and Other Debris From the Air Conditioner 

Leaves and twigs can stress your air conditioner and even stop it from working since leaves will clog the unit and promote rusting.

Cover Your Air Conditioner Unit 

A good cover will protect your hvac unit from ice damage and will insulate it from wind, rain, sleet, and snow.
