How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Many homeowners ask what they can do to avoid air conditioning repair problems in addition to changing their air filter every 30 days. Roland J. Down Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with some suggestions to help your air conditioning system keep up with the dog days of summer.

Shut off your equipment while mowing.

To prevent lawn clippings from getting into your outside air conditioning equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are landscaping. 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 be sure your home has proper airflow, make sure your return air grills are open and have plenty of room around them.

Get routine pest control service.

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

Get your seasonal tune-up.
