Question about Heating & Cooling
Can I store our Amana window air conditioner in the garage where it will be exposed to freezing temperatures during the winter?
Sure you can but you have to prepare it for the winter.
re-oil the fan motor and make sure you wrap the whole unit up with a plastic wrapper just like the one used in the kitchen, the one that you can stretch to cover a whole stainless food container. then put it in a box to further keep the moisture away.
then after the winter and you want to use it again,
unpack it and inspect the fan motor. make sure that it is freely moving without binding or sticking.
let it stand for a couple of hours so that if there is dew inside , it would evaporate first .
then you can use it again.
