May 18, 2017

Several customers ask what they can do to prevent air conditioning repair problems in addition to changing their air filter each month. Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a couple options to help your air conditioning system keep up with the high temperatures of summer.

Turn off your equipment while mowing.

To prevent lawn clippings from infiltrating your outside A/C equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are doing yardwork. 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 ensure proper airflow, confirm your return air grills are open and have plenty of 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 seriously cause the equipment to malfunction so spreading an environmentally safe pesticide around the base of your outdoor equipment can help stop insect infestation issues.

Get your yearly tune-up.
