How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Several customers ask what they can do to avoid cooling equipment repair problems in addition to changing their air filter monthly. Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a few recommendations to help your cooling equipment keep up with the dog days of summer.

Turn off your equipment while mowing.

To prevent lawn clippings from getting into your outside A/C equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are landscaping. You should also keep the outdoor system clear from any plants so it has adequate room to perform properly.

Keep air supply vents open and free from obstruction.

To make sure you have proper airflow, make sure your return air grills are open and have plenty of open space around them.

Get routine pest control visits.

Bugs can find their way into the electrical components within your outdoor cooling equipment. These bugs could potentially cause the system to malfunction so spreading an environmentally safe pesticide around the base of your outdoor system can help prevent insect infestation issues.

Get your yearly tune-up.

Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning offers A/C system maintenance plans to provide homeowners with a proactive approach to taking care of your air conditioning system. Seasonal maintenance is critical not just to keep your cooling system working properly, but also to keep your warranty valid.
