Seeing summer fade away can be sad in some ways. Long nights, swimming pools, and warm weather are just a few things you lose when summer ends in Martinsburg, WV. One of the perks of summer ending, though, is that you won’t have to operate your air conditioner as often.
Just because it’s not running, though, doesn’t mean it still doesn’t deserve some special attention. If you follow these simple tips from Johnson & Johnson Heating and Air Conditioning, you’ll be able to give your air conditioner the seasonal send-off that it deserves.
Clean Out Debris
Summer storms bring with them a lot of debris. Sometimes, even though your exterior air conditioner unit is protected, this debris can make its way inside the unit. Rather than let that debris sit there all winter and cause potential rust problems, it makes sense to remove this debris, so you don’t have to worry about it when spring rolls around.
While you’re removing debris, you should also look over your outdoor unit to see if there are any other problems you’ll need to have a technician from Johnson & Johnson Heating and Air Conditioning take a look at.
Clean the Condensate Drain
As your air conditioner removes humidity from your home’s air, the resulting water is sent out of your home through a component called a condensate drain. Over time, your air conditioner’s condensate drain can become clogged due to a build-up of mineral deposits.
To help prevent these deposits from solidifying over the winter, it’s a good idea to pour a diluted bleach solution down your condensate drain at the end of the season to clear away any mineral deposits that have started to form.
