How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems Published on May 18, 2017 Many homeowners ask what they can do to avoid cooling equipment repair problems beyond changing their air filter monthly. Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a couple options to help your A/C system keep up with the heat of summer. Shut off your air conditioner while mowing. To avoid lawn clippings from entering your outside air conditioning equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are mowing. You should also keep the outdoor equipment clear from any vegetation or brush so it has adequate room to perform properly. Keep air supply vents open and free from obstruction. To be sure your home has proper airflow, be sure your return air grills are open and have plenty of room 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 seriously cause the air conditioner to malfunction so spreading an environmentally safe pesticide around the base of your outdoor air conditioner can help prevent insect infestation issues. Get your seasonal tune-up. Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning offers cooling equipment maintenance plans to provide customers with a proactive approach to taking care of your cooling system. Annual maintenance is critical not just to keep your air conditioner working properly, but also to keep your warranty valid. Are you having issues with your air conditioning system?
