How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Many customers ask what they can do to prevent cooling equipment repair problems in addition to changing their air filter every 30 days. Chief / Bauer Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a couple options to help your cooling equipment keep up with the high temperatures of summer.

Power off your air conditioner while mowing.

To avoid lawn clippings from getting into your outside A/C equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are doing yardwork. You should also keep the outdoor system clear from any vegetation or brush so it has enough 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 open space around them.

Get routine pest control service.

Bugs can find their way into the electrical components within your outdoor A/C equipment. These bugs could potentially cause the equipment to malfunction so spreading an environmentally safe pesticide around the base of your outdoor equipment can help stop insect infestation issues.
