How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems Published on May 18, 2017 Several customers ask what they can do to prevent A/C system repair problems besides just changing their air filter each month. Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a few recommendations to help your air conditioning system keep up with the heat of summer. Shut off your system while mowing. To avoid lawn clippings from getting into your outside A/C equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are mowing. You should also keep the outdoor unit clear from any vegetation or brush so it has enough room to perform properly. Keep air supply vents open and free from obstruction. To make sure you have proper airflow, be sure your return air grills are open and have plenty of room around them. Get routine pest control maintenance. Bugs can find their way into the electrical components within your outdoor cooling equipment. These bugs could actually cause the system to malfunction so spreading an environmentally safe pesticide around the base of your outdoor system can help avoid 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 equipment. Seasonal maintenance is important 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?
