Vancouver Air Conditioning Company Offers Winterization Tips

Vancouver air conditioning company provides some practical tips to protect your investment from the cold

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - November 28, 2016) - An air conditioner is a lifesaver on a balmy Vancouver evening, keeping a home cool and comfortable. However, come fall, homeowners should winterize their units. Winterizing an air conditioner will help ensure it's in good working order come next year. For more, go to:

"Winterizing your outdoor unit provides some base protection against the winter elements," explains an HVAC technician at Pro Ace Heating & Air Conditioning Services Ltd. Besides protecting the unit from snow and ice, you want to make sure the metal components don't rust. It's possible to do all this in a few simple steps.

  1. Turn the unit off. Usually there will be a plastic or metal lid protecting the unit. Open the lid and turn the unit off. Replace the lid.
  2. Remove any grime and debris. Sweep away any branches, leaves, or clippings and wash the unit using a garden hose.
  3. In regions that tend to dip below freezing, any exposed pipes should be protected using foam pipe covers. Wrap duct tape around the cover to secure it.
  4. Drape a waterproof sheet, typically plastic or vinyl, over the unit to protect it from water damage.

The cover should be checked periodically to ensure that it's secure and no holes have formed. Homeowners who want help winterizing their system can call Pro Ace Heating & Air Conditioning Services Ltd. to set up an appointment.
