Yep. Those covers make money for the company that makes them, and for us when they are left on when trying to use the A/c.I like it when the customer says "I never touched it" (cover is now off). BUT wait!! the teenagers turned it on and mentioned it wasn't working.:laughing:
Ka Ching, $95 service call.:thumbsup:
If my neighbor had hers covered during Winter, it would not have had over a foot of leaf debris piled inside. Had to take the cover off, access panel on back, and the grid covering the coils to get all of the crud out of it.Covers Blah!!!!!!! All they do is cause trouble especially when they are put on real nice and tight with all that condensation build up it ruins the innards with moisture. A/C units are like cars, boats, trucks, they belong outside. If I was to put a cover on at all it would be just to cover the top from excess snow and ice.
the biggest saving is that the winter snow doesn't melt over the fan blades and all the water drips down and down the fan motor shaft...if you cover the condenser the life of it will be extended.even a plastic garbage can cover with a brick on top it something.you should hear and see what winter melt does to commercial rooftop condensers with 6-12-24 fans when they start for the spring load...and 480Vs ba boom and the building engineers aren't covering squat:wink: in the fall
