You’re getting ready for the fall season and the cold weather is coming. With Air Conditioners not required anymore we’re looking at closing up our backyard fall. But there’s a myth, that we often hear this time of year, that some people like to cover their air conditioner, like a barbeque, so it can be protected from the rough winter weather.
We don’t advise ever putting a homemade cover over your AC unit for a variety of reasons, but using a manufacturer specific cover is never a bad idea, especially if your AC is located under a roof where icicles or heavy snow may build up and fall on the fan blades. There are some things you can do instead of covering it up in a tarp or home-made cover, that will help you AC last as long as it can and still be ready for spring.
Here’s a list of the Pro’s and Con’s for covering your Air Conditioner

There are many certifications required by contractors to ensure your safety and make sure your home’s insurance will be covered by the work being done.
Some of these certifications are for working on gas lines, some for electricity but ALL of them are for your safety. We’re going to explain the most important ones and why you need your contractor to have these certifications.

One of the most common questions that we hear from people looking to buy a new air conditioner for their home is, “what size do I need?”. The answer is not a simple one, as it depends on a number of factors. Getting the proper size AC for your home is important as it will determine performance quality, efficiency (your energy bill!), your comfort level, as well as maintenance and repair cost in the future.
The size of AC you choose will be based mostly on the size of your home, but other factors can play a part as well. Generally selecting the right size requires a consultation with a professional.
