Air conditioner gets protected from harsh winter weather

I still sort of can’t believe that I finally gave in.

My wife so wanted central air conditioning for the summer.

Well, that would make sense if we lived anywhere else than here. I mean we’re so far north, we’re barely still in this country for crying out loud. The only thing that concerns me when it comes to heating and cooling is the heating. We have monster winters up here and they require preparation and attention. I’m thinking about making sure the heating maintenance gets done. Or that we have plenty of wood put up for the wood stove. I use a wood stove as both our back up heating method and to keep the gas furnace heating costs down. These are the HVAC things that concern me. Central air conditioning never enters in my mind until my wife starts in about it. She just didn’t want to deal with the window air conditioning that I put in every summer. Really, it’s all we need. The summers here are quite pleasant. But somehow, she really got to me and I acquiesced. The HVAC company sent out a couple of HVAC technicians and they had that air conditioning system in within the day. I have to agree that it’s very comfortable and the cooling is quite even in the house. But now, I have to get something to cover the HVAC cabinet outside during the winter. The weight of the snow and ice on those HVAC components wouldn’t be good. So ironically, the air conditioning has added yet another HVAC preparation I have to consider for the winter.
