Most of us do not require the air conditioner during the winter months but that does not mean you should stop taking care of your air conditioner. In fact, you should take more care of your air conditioner during the winter months. This is because if proper care is not taken during the winter season, it will cause further damage of the unit. Hence, let us have a look at some of the things that you need to do during the winter season to prolong the life of your air conditioner.You should keep in mind that winter is the best time to replace your air conditioner because during winter the price of the air conditioning units are lesser when compared to the prices of the units during the peak season.As far as the maintenance activity of the air conditioner is concerned, the most important thing that you must to do is turn off the AC switch. This keeps the chances of electrocution at bay and also the condensing unit does not freeze causing further damage to the air conditioner.Secondly, cleaning the outdoor unit is another important aspect that one must keep in mind when it comes to maintenance of the air conditioner during the winter months. All debris around the outdoor unit should be removed. The exhaust vents should be cleared. It is mandatory to replace the air filters of the AC unit during the winter months.Lastly, it is a better idea to check the condition of the air conditioning unit. For example, you need to check for cracks, disconnected pipes or clogged drains.
