The days of sweltering summer heat are long forgotten, replaced by a toasty fire and fully cranked furnace.

Frequently asked questions

You bet. Whether you’re working with a central air conditioner or a window unit (or many!), a Tasker can help with that.

Good question. AC winterization is an often overlooked, but critical task as a homeowner. Properly caring for your unit will increase its life –– saving you big bucks! How? By preventing rust damage, keeping small animals from making their homes inside the unit’s mechanical parts, and more. Basically, it keeps your air conditioner clean and in tip-top shape. Bonus points: you’ll feel extra responsible once you’ve checked it off your to-do list. 

While it’s best to take care of in the fall months, the saying it’s better late than never applies here. If it’s winter and you’re just thinking about it, it’s not too late. Hire a Tasker today and consider it taken care of.

Sure thing. When browsing experienced Taskers, select “Today” to ensure you’ll find someone in your area who can come over ASAP. As always, choose the Tasker that best fits your needs by browsing rates and reviews.

You can, but don’t have to. The beauty of working with Taskers is they know the way to get the job done the right way and with the right supplies. When communicating with your Tasker, you can share how you’d prefer to winterize your air conditioner –– maybe that’s with a simple board atop the unit, or maybe that’s with a cover. Taskers will make a recommendation, and that may include a trip to the hardware store, or it may not. (Don’t forget –– if a trip to the hardware store doesn’t fit in your schedule, we have Taskers for that.)
