Put Your Central Air Conditioner Down for a Long Winter’s Nap

After running all day every day during the spring and summer season, your central air conditioner will be ready to take a nap. Before you move the HVAC switch to heat, prepare your unit for the upcoming blustery winter season with an end of season air conditioner maintenance.


Can my Central Air Conditioner freeze up during winter? | Energy Centre


Ensure everything is ready for spring when you put these winter steps into play:


  • Do one more spring cleaning by removing any debris, including bird droppings.
  • Take a look for potential leaks, cracks, or rust in pipes and casings.
  • Put everything under wraps with a waterproof vinyl or plastic cover.
  • Keep an eye on things throughout winter by making weekly checks to remove debris and dirt.
  • As icy weather swoops in, remember to remove accumulating snow, ice, and water from the cover.
