How air conditioners winterized? Is there storage available for air conditioners? If so, what needs to be done to block the hole in the wall and stop drafts during the winter? How heaters at home be prepared for winter? What about heaters at work? What needs to be done to get ready for the harsh weather coming up so quickly? <br />These are all valid questions and ones which should be answered by a certified AC contractors and HVAC repairmen. Every home is different and therefore, has different needs. For example, an older three bedroom home with mature trees in the yard will not have the same air conditioners as a new three bedroom apartment on the tenth floor of a large apartment building. That’s why AC contractors should be contacted before any ‘do it yourself’ winterization is attempted. <br />If air conditioners were custom installed the situation is particularly touchy. Those who are trying to save money by removing and storing their own air conditioners should take note: it doesn’t save money when walls are destroyed and air conditioners are broken by inexperienced ‘do it yourselfers’. <br />While the internet is a wonderful tool for many purposes, very few websites give free advice that is specifically tailored to each individual’s needs. Therefore, when Googling these questions, try to remember that your case is almost certainly not the same as the person who wrote the informative article about winterizing AC units. Only certified AC contractors in your area should attempt winterization and repair.<br />Most companies that install AC units can also store them for a fee. Sometimes installers will store AC units free of charge. You may try to remember this fact the next time you look for HVAC contractors in your area. <br />If you have already successfully removed your air conditioners from their summertime perches do not store them in garages or sheds. It’s no more useful to store AC units in unheated rooms than it is to just leave them in the walls or windows.<br />If your AC contractor approves, there are several products on the market to help winterize AC units without the hassle of removing the entire unit, blocking the open space left behind and storing the unit. Insulated covers for air conditioners are a good way to block cold air from entering the home, freezing vital mechanisms within the unit and preventing heat loss from the unit. <br />Also great for winterizing the home are AC duct covers. Duct covers are typically magnetic, making them extremely convenient to install. All that’s needed is unwrapping the magnetic cover, a quick cleaning of the metal AC duct cover and application of the magnetic cover over the metal. Products like magnetic AC duct covers and insulated air conditioner covers can save money and are extremely convenient. <br />The reliable, certified HVAC contractors at Mike’s Air Conditioning understand that every customer’s needs are different.
