Save Yourself The Trouble: Winterize Your Minnesota Air Conditioning Unit This Season

Do you feel that chill that is in the air? The leaves have been changing colors, holiday music is playing, and Christmas lists are being created.

This must mean it is almost winter in Minnesota.

Now is definitely a good time to start thinking about your heating system and getting it going to warm your home.

However, before you get your heating system going, we want you to take some time to winterize your air conditioner.

Yes, winterize your air conditioner.

When you winterize your air conditioner now, you will be more than happy when spring rolls around again.

Why?

You will instantly feel the cool air once you turn on your air conditioner again.

Your air conditioner has put in some hard work for the past few months, and you will need it again in a few more months.

When you take the time to winterize and properly store your air conditioner, you will not have to deal with any frustrations or headaches next season.

There are various things that can go completely wrong with your air conditioning unit during the winter:

  • Critters and rodents will love to make your air conditioner their new home
  • Your air conditioner can freeze or rust
  • It can also be covered with mildew or mold

When you make sure your air conditioner is stored properly this winter, you can prevent these issues.

There are many things you can do to prepare your air conditioner for the following, including the following:

  • Clean your air conditioner unit by making sure there are no leaves, sticks, or other debris around it
  • Make sure all of your pipes are insulated
  • Turn off the electrical switch on your outdoor air conditioner unit
  • Properly cover your air conditioner during the winter.

Since air conditioners were created to be outdoors, you will not have to cover your entire air conditioner. If you expect snowstorms and other harsh weather, you can cover your AC units until the storm has passed.
