As we’ve entered the colder season, the need for our AC could decrease. Not only is this a good time to check if the filter needs replacement (so that it’s ready to go when you need it again) but it could also be a good idea to cover it up with a cover. This is a great protection from snow, wind, nesting animals and other outdoor elements - because let’s face it, an air conditioner is an investment and something that you’d want to protect.
Take a look at this great article that highlights the Top 10 AC covers (all available on Amazon) posted at Eotmblog.com.
