Below you will find some protective measures and maintenance procedures against the damage that winters in pose to the external part of your AC as it’s left installed in the cold winter months, so you can rest easy knowing it will start right up next summer. If your AC didn’t work as well as you’d have liked this summer, or broke down, now is the best time to buy an energy efficient Lennox AC at an amazing price.
Turn the AC off
Sometimes the AC unit can turn on during an unusually warm winter day in Vaughan, taking in water which can freeze and damage the unit when it gets colder again. So it’s best to turn the unit completely off using the switch on the AC unit’s electrical circuit, which can be found under a metal or plastic covering.
If your AC’s electronics, or sensors, are damaged, and it turns on or off at inconvenient times, it’s time to switch to a Lennox.

You can spray the unit down with water, and let it dry, before covering it up. Not sure how to best clean your AC? Book our Lennox AC maintenance service for expert cleaning and repairs.

Protect your pipes

Cover the outside unit
Cover the outside unit with a plastic/vinyl covering to protect it against Vaughan’s winter weather. You can purchase a new cover if your old one is too worn, but make sure you choose a cover that’s waterproof and winter appropriate. Wrap vinyl ropes or bungee cords around the air conditioning cover to keep it secure against the wind.
