Condensers During The Winter Months

It's mid-January, which means winter is in full swing. Now that snow is falling; some might have the question: Should you cover up your AC unit during the harsh winter months? Read more below to find out. 

Protecting Your Condensers 

It is essential to understand that your condenser is not required to be covered in winter. Outdoor cooling units are designed to withstand harsh winter conditions, eliminating the need for a cover. However, if you choose to protect your condenser, here are some things to keep in mind.

When covering your condenser, make sure that the unit can breathe and that the covering does not trap moisture. The moisture trapped in your condenser can lead to corrosion in your AC unit. If you want to go that extra mile, try putting a coat of car wax onto the pre-painted, buffed-out metal. You will see the luster of the paint come back, and it protects just like any painted surface will with wax. This will keep your AC unit looking good through the winter and protect the metal from snow. 

Another note for winter/snow season:

To ensure proper combustion/flue gas exhaustion, keep the furnace intake and exhaust vents clear of snow and other debris (please reference the photo featured in the blog post).
