Winter has finally arrived in North Texas. With wind chills down in the 20s now is the time to make sure your home is ready for the cold snap. 1. Make sure you have scheduled your regular air conditioner service. Our technicians can help you handle a host of critical air conditioner service and safety checks if needed, such as the inspection of electrical connections, equipment cleaning and switching out your air filter. 2. Consider adding foam pipe covers for any of your uncovered exterior pipes. Foam pipe covers could be a big help in saving your pipes from freezing when the temperatures go down. 3. Clear the area near your air conditioner to be sure there is not any debris or leaves that could harm the performance of your air conditioner or the technician doing your air conditioner service. Two to three feet of space around the air conditioner is ideal. These are just a couple tips to help you get your air conditioner ready for some off time this season. This will help keep your unused system strong so you start utilizing it when it warms up. In Texas, the saying if you don’t like the weather today, just wait a week definitely applies. Warmer temps will be back before we know it. Your friends at Spencer Heating and Air Conditioning are here to answer all of your questions on how to keep your home energy efficient.
