How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems Published on May 18, 2017 Many customers ask what they can do to avoid cooling equipment repair problems besides just 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 dog days of summer. Turn off your system while mowing. To prevent lawn clippings from infiltrating your outside A/C equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are mowing. You should also keep the outdoor equipment clear from any plants so it has optimal room to perform properly. Keep air supply vents open and free from obstruction. To ensure proper airflow, be sure your return air grills are open and have plenty of room around them. Get routine pest control maintenance. Bugs can make their way into the electrical components within your outdoor cooling equipment. These bugs could seriously cause the equipment to malfunction so spreading an environmentally safe pesticide around the base of your outdoor equipment can help prevent insect infestation issues. Get your annual tune-up. Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning offers A/C system maintenance plans to provide you with a proactive approach to taking care of your air conditioning system. Annual maintenance is critical not just to keep your cooling system working properly, but also to keep your warranty valid. Are you having issues with your air conditioning system?
