How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Many homeowners ask what they can do to prevent cooling equipment repair problems besides just changing their air filter every 30 days. Roland J. Down Service Experts is here with some suggestions to help your air conditioning system keep up with the dog days of summer.

Shut off your system while mowing.

To avoid 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 system 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, confirm 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 cooling equipment. These bugs could potentially cause the air conditioner to malfunction so spreading an environmentally safe pesticide around the base of your outdoor equipment can help stop insect infestation issues.

Get your seasonal tune-up.
