Winter Air Conditioning Tips
Most people are thankful for their air conditioner when the warm months roll around. So, it can be incredibly frustrating turning on the air conditioner only to find that it isn’t working!
And that’s just the worst-case scenario.
What can also be frustrating is to find out that your usage costs have skyrocketed since the last summer. This is why, it is crucial to carry out air conditioner maintenance in winter.
Winter air conditioning maintenance has a wide range of benefits, but perhaps most notably it:
- ensures that the air conditioner is working during summers and running efficiently
- helps the air conditioner operate for its maximum life span
- makes sure that external parts of the air conditioner located outside of the home are adequately prepared for the harsh winter months
Air conditioner maintenance depends on the use and type of system. In a Residential setting, you may only require a pre-summer and pre-winter check but in a Commercial setting, you may also have lease conditions that need to be met. Depending on the situation, Climaterite will provide a quote recommendation that suits your requirements.
It’s not difficult to “winterize” your air conditioning system, and it will pay off by protecting it from potential damage, prolonging its service life, and ensuring that it runs smoothly when it’s time to cool your home again.
So, how do you maintain your air conditioner in winter?
Keep Your Filters Clean
Whether you use the air conditioner or not, it is critical to keep your air filters clean. This is simple to accomplish and will ensure that your device always runs efficiently.
Remove Any Debris From The Outside Air Conditioning Unit
Make sure that the outside unit is in good working order as any debris or anything outside or around the unit can cause issues. Maintaining a clean and clutter-free environment around the unit allows the system to breathe and function properly.
Clean Cooling Coils
Cleaning your cooling coils is just as important as cleaning your AC unit’s filters. Not doing so can lead to malfunctioning. Make sure to clean and maintain these coils on a regular basis so that you can relax and enjoy heat during the colder months.

Frequently Asked Questions – Winter Air Conditioning
What is a winter air conditioning system?
Both in the summer and the winter, hot and cold air conditioners can change the temperature as per your preference. The air conditioner merely reverses its function during the winter, allowing it to work more efficiently and so bringing warm air into the room.
What is the difference between summer and winter air conditioning?
In the summer, heat is removed from the air and during the winter, heat is added. In the summer, an air conditioner eliminates moisture from the air, allowing it to drain quickly from your skin and giving you that refreshingly cool feeling. Heating causes the air to become drier.
Should you use your AC in the winter?
Yes, you can use your AC in the winter but it’s not absolutely necessary. If your home becomes stuffy during the winter, open a window or two to bring the temperature back to normal. But if you need your AC during the season, you can make a use of it.
