If you have a central air conditioner, you want to make sure that you know that it's going to be in good shape when you turn it on for the next cooling season. The easiest way to make sure that your air conditioner is going to be fine for the next cooling season is to take care of it and put it to bed nicely for the next cooling season. There are some things that you can do to be ready:
One thing that you can do is get it clean. There are several ways that you can clean your air conditioner for the winter. One thing you can do is to go to the outdoor unit and make sure that there is no grass or anything growing around it. Grass or other vegetation growing right up around the unit can block the air flow that should be happening around your air conditioning unit. Clearing all that vegetation away from the unit will also make it less attractive to any rodents or other pests that may want to shelter around your air conditioning unit. You will also want to make sure that you clear everything off the unit. That means picking off any large debris and then spraying the unit off so that all the smaller debris are off of the unit. Make sure that if you are going to spray the air conditioner to clean it off that you do it before the weather is freezing.
Have it Inspected
If you have any worries about how your air conditioner and how it was working while you were using it, you will probably want to make sure that you get it inspected to make sure that you have it set to go. An inspection will make sure that all the pieces are working the way that they should be. The service tech doing the inspection will check out all the various units, on both the inside and the outside. As the service tech does the inspection, they are going to have a checklist that they are going to go by so that everything is covered. The best reason to have it inspected at the end of the season is that when it comes time to turn it on next year, you don't have to wait for anyone to do it during the busy season.
