Waiting a few minutes
After a week straight of cold, rainy weather, my wife decided that it was finally time to shut down the central air conditioner! Doing so isn’t all that complicated, but it’s pressing to get it done before Wintertide hits, and where the two of us live, the interim seasons of fall plus Springtime are both incredibly short; That means the two of us have a actually small window of time to get the central air conditioner plan safely packed away. The first step is to shut off the entire system. This doesn’t mean just turning the thermostat to off. The best step is to go outside plus find the panel for the entire plan shut off, however you can also shut off that switch on your circuit breaker, which should be labelled for the central air conditioner, but next, you need to disinfect out the condenser plus remove any debris, both of us like to get this done early in the fall, so that the two of us aren’t cleaning out as much leaves plus sticks from the rain plus Autumn die off, and once its fully cleaned plus cleared, you need to let it air out for a few minutes. This is what makes condenser cleaning tricky in Autumn–you honestly need to find a nice sunny day to do it, then after about more than 2 minutes, the condenser can be covered with a waterproof tarp. You can buy 1 special from your local Heating and Air Conditioning corporation, or simply by waterproof wrapping at your local hardware store; Either opportunity will need to be secured with bungee cables or ropes to insure it doesn’t fly way in a storm. Once this is done, you’re condenser A/C component will be safe for severe Wintertide weather.
