Part of regular home maintenance is getting the outside of your house ready for cooler weather. Covering the air conditioner should be one of those chores. This is why you should have a Napoleon Air Conditioner Cover for covering your outdoor units in the winter.
Though your Napoleon air conditioner – the outdoor part, in particular, is built to withstand harsh weather – protecting it from the elements is a great idea when you don’t need it running anymore. Why?
If you live in warmer climates, covering may not be as necessary as it is for those who live in areas that see a lot of snow and harsher weather. Find out more about protecting your outdoor units in bad weather here.
Not all covers are created equal. In fact, some can actually be detrimental to your air conditioner’s health and longevity. That’s why, when picking a cover, you want to look for ones that feature breathable materials and venting – like Napoleon’s Winter Air Conditioner Covers. They prevent moisture build-up and encourage airflow, which will avoid trapping moisture against any electronic parts and the rusting of the unit itself. The added airflow also discourages critters from taking refuge, building nests, and chewing wires.
Aside from remembering to clean around and inside the unit before covering, remember to uncover your unit before turning it back on in the springtime. A handy way to do this is to turn the breaker switch that runs the unit off so you can’t accidentally turn it on before it’s been uncovered.
Do you cover your air conditioner? If not you can get a Napoleon Air Conditioner Cover from your local Napoleon HVAC dealer.
