How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Several homeowners ask what they can do to help stop cooling equipment repair problems beyond changing their air filter every 30 days. Teays Valley Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with some suggestions to help your cooling equipment keep up with the high temperatures of summer.

Shut off your air conditioner while mowing.

To prevent lawn clippings from entering 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 enough room to perform properly.

Keep air supply vents open and free from obstruction.

To make sure you have proper airflow, be sure your return air grills are open and have plenty of open space around them.

Get routine pest control visits.

Bugs can make 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 avoid insect infestation issues.

Get your annual tune-up.

Seasonal maintenance is important not just to keep your air conditioner working properly, but also to keep your warranty valid.
