When to Winterize Your AC

Posted on: October 21, 2014

As the first cool morning comes around the Tampa Bay and Clearwater areas, it is time to think about the AC services your home needs to start getting ready for the colder months.

What is Winterizing?

Winterizing is just another way of saying you are shutting down your air conditioning unit for the winter. The process is fairly quick and easy, and can help you keep your unit working efficiently for much longer. Midway offers a variety of AC services, including getting your home ready for winter.

With many years of experience, experts take care of your air conditioner better than anyone else. The Midway staff in Clearwater can winterize your outdoor unit in just a few steps:

1. TURNING OFF ALL EXTERIOR POWER TO PREVENT DAMAGE TO THE UNIT

2. CLEANING YOUR AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM ENTIRELY

3. INSTALLING WATERPROOF PROTECTION TO COVER THE UNIT AND ENSURE IT STAYS COMPLETELY DRY

4. SEAL VENTS AND DUCTS TO AVOID ANY SOURCE OF DRAFTS

WITH THAT, YOUR AIR CONDITIONER WILL BE COMPLETELY READY TO START BACK UP IN THE SPRING, AND WILL KEEP YOU WORRY- FREE ALL WINTER LONG.

 

When Should You Do It?

Preparing for cold weather in Clearwater is a lot more different than it is up north. It also comes much later in the year as we can still enjoy some beautiful warm days around here. We usually advise to winterize when Daylight Saving Time ends, but each home has different needs. Speaking with your AC services provider is often the best idea to determine when this should be done. A professional will be able to discuss your needs with you and see when you are most likely to turn the heat on and forget about air conditioning for a few months.
