How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Several homeowners ask what they can do to prevent A/C system repair problems besides just changing their air filter every 30 days. Neal Harris Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with some suggestions to help your A/C system keep up with the high temperatures of summer.

Power off your system while mowing.

To help stop lawn clippings from infiltrating your outside air conditioning 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 adequate 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 open space 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 annual tune-up.

Yearly maintenance is critical not just to keep your air conditioning equipment working properly, but also to keep your warranty valid.
