May 18, 2017

Many homeowners ask what they can do to prevent air conditioning repair problems beyond changing their air filter monthly. Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a few recommendations to help your cooling equipment keep up with the dog days of summer.

Power off your system while mowing.

To help stop lawn clippings from getting into your outside A/C equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are landscaping. You should also keep the outdoor unit clear from any obstructions 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 space around them.

Get routine pest control visits.

Bugs can get into the electrical components within your outdoor A/C equipment. These bugs could actually 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 annual tune-up.
