With the recent storms that have been coming through the Chicagoland area this summer, many of us have been moving a few of our outdoor items indoors so the rain doesn’t cause any damage. But what about one of your home’s most important assets that cannot be brought inside: your air conditioner?
One thing is for certain, the engineers who design your air conditioner make sure that they are creating a unit that can withstand the forces of Mother Nature. Your Air Conditioner Durability is so high that it can handle the rain, snow, sleet, hail, and high winds. Your air conditioner is designed so that any items that need to stay dry are protected within your unit to keep any water and moisture out of the unit.
Many of our customers have asked about whether or not it is a good idea to keep their air conditioners covered during the non-cooling seasons to keep anything from getting inside. Your Air Conditioner Durability does not require that you have to cover your air conditioner when it is not in use. However, choosing to cover your unit will cause your unit no harm and will keep larger sized items out of your furnace (such as leaves). If you do choose to cover your air conditioner, we ask that you contact your heating and air conditioning company regarding purchasing the proper sized cover and applying it appropriately, because putting the cover on incorrectly could cause mold and mildew to develop inside your air conditioning unit.
One very important aspect regarding your Air Conditioner Durability is that you should get it maintained on an annual basis from your licensed HVAC contractor, making sure that everything is running as efficiently as possible and having an early detection of any possible problems. If you haven’t yet had your air conditioner maintained for this cooling season, feel free to contact the office at (630) 548-1500 to schedule an appointment!
