How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Several customers ask what they can do to help stop cooling equipment repair problems in addition to changing their air filter monthly. A-PLUS Service Experts is here with a few recommendations to help your cooling equipment keep up with the high temperatures of summer.

Shut off your system while mowing.

To prevent lawn clippings from entering your outside cooling equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are mowing. You should also keep the outdoor unit clear from any plants so it has adequate room to perform properly.

Keep air supply vents open and free from obstruction.

To make sure you have proper airflow, confirm 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 seriously cause the equipment to malfunction so spreading an environmentally safe pesticide around the base of your outdoor equipment can help avoid insect infestation issues.

Get your seasonal tune-up.

A-PLUS Service Experts offers A/C system maintenance plans to provide customers with a proactive approach to taking care of your cooling system. Annual maintenance is critical not just to keep your cooling system working properly, but also to keep your warranty valid.
