Although we might not want to admit it, summer is just about over. That means it’s time to remove those window AC units.
It’s an important step in making the most of your heating system as temperatures begin to dip. Plus, you want to keep your equipment safe from the elements when not in use. Here’s what to do with your window air conditioner during the cooler months:
1. Clean it
Once you’ve successfully removed your air conditioner, give it a good clean. Doing this now will help make life much easier next spring. Clean the filter, dust the cover, and scrub down the back.
2. Winterize it
Get the dimensions of your window AC , and head to your local home improvement store for a winterizing cover. Not only will winterizing your air conditioning unit help protect its exterior from dirt and debris, but it will also keep insects and vermin out.
3. Find appropriate storage space
The attic and basement are good spots for storing your window AC. Avoid keeping your cooling equipment in the garage, where bugs and small animals could be looking for shelter. Homeowners with little-to-no extra space might want to consider renting out a storage unit.
