How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

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

Power off your system while mowing.

To help stop lawn clippings from entering your outside air conditioning equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are doing yardwork. 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 make sure you have proper airflow, make sure your return air grills are open and have plenty of room around them.

Get routine pest control visits.

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

Get your annual tune-up.

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