Storing Air Conditioners During Winter
Neglecting to remove your air conditioner before cooler weather returns may cause mechanical problems months later when you re-install the unit. Air conditioners were not made to withstand constant exposure to external temperatures below 40 degree Fahrenheit. Freezing temperatures often cause A/C unit systems to shrink, crack, warp and become less energy efficient. In fact, leaving your A/C unit in the window all winter may result in a total failure of the system when you need it the most.

Start to store your air conditioner by initially cleaning the unit and replacing filters. Use canned air or the reverse suction option on your vacuum cleaner to blow dust and dirt out of the inside the unit. Actually, cleaning your air conditioner in this way should be done once or twice during the summer to maintain efficiency and keep energy costs down.

If you still have the original box in which the unit was packaged, put the unit back into this box using the Styrofoam protective pieces to prevent slipping around in the box. You can also wrap the unit in bubble wrap or specially designed A/C covers made from vinyl or polyester that protect it from rusting or extreme temperature damage that may happen from storing the air conditioner in a cellar or attic.

Never store an air conditioner on its side or upside down. Always store it sitting upright the way it is placed in the window. This prevents oil and other lubricating solutions from seeping into internal components that are not meant to be contaminated by these liquids.

When storing an air conditioner in a basement or cellar, place the unit on cement blocks or sturdy tables to prevent water from rusting the unit. If you suspect mice, rats or other chewing creatures of occasionally visiting your storage space, put the air conditioner in a heavy-duty plastic storage bin or other protective accessory that will prevent uninvited guests from damaging the unit.

Common Problems with Air Conditioners
Even though you might have stored your air conditioner properly over the winter, common issues may present themselves once you are using it again. These include:
Refrigerant leaks--occurs when hoses have developed cracks due to wear and tear or exposure to cold climate.
Lack of maintenance--A/C coils and air filters require regular cleaning. Lack of timely maintenance procedures may result in damaged fans or compressors.
Electrical and sensor problems--can result from corroded wires or wires that are simply worn out due to an air conditioner being turned on and off frequently.

To ensure that your summer is cool and comfortable, keep your air conditioner in top shape by having it periodically maintained by a professional and storing it properly during the winter.
