How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Many customers ask what they can do to help stop A/C system repair problems beyond changing their air filter each month. Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a few recommendations to help your cooling equipment keep up with the high temperatures of summer.

Power off your air conditioner while mowing.

To prevent lawn clippings from getting into your outside cooling equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are mowing. You should also keep the outdoor unit clear from any obstructions so it has optimal room to perform properly.

Keep air supply vents open and free from obstruction.

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

Get routine pest control visits.

Bugs can make their way into the electrical components within your outdoor A/C equipment. These bugs could potentially cause the air conditioner to malfunction so spreading an environmentally safe pesticide around the base of your outdoor system can help stop insect infestation issues.

Get your seasonal tune-up.

Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning offers cooling equipment maintenance plans to provide you with a proactive approach to taking care of your air conditioning system. Yearly maintenance is important not just to keep your air conditioning equipment working properly, but also to keep your warranty valid.
