Winterizing Your A/C Units

Do A/C units have to be winterized?

Protect your A/C

Many homeowners don’t know that their A/C units need to be protected during the offseason. It will save you money in the long run and reduce any chances of it not working properly in the upcoming summer months.

Winterizing A/C Units

One of the easiest things you can do is cover the condenser with waterproof material. But make sure that you leave an opening along the bottom for air circulation to prevent any condensation from forming.

Make sure that your equipment has been inspected and cleaned. During an inspection, any faults will be made known to keep your A/C at top working level. To clean the A/C, you can use a garden hose to clean off any debris from the condenser.

Finally, turn off the breaker for your A/C in the main electric panel. This will prevent an accidental start up in the winter months, which could cause a compressor failure.
