How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

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

Shut off your air conditioner while mowing.

To avoid lawn clippings from getting into your outside air conditioning 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 optimal room to perform properly.

Keep air supply vents open and free from obstruction.

To be sure your home has proper airflow, be sure your return air grills are open and have plenty of room around them.

Get routine pest control service.

Bugs can make their way into the electrical components within your outdoor air conditioning equipment. These bugs could actually cause the air conditioner to malfunction so spreading an environmentally safe pesticide around the base of your outdoor system can help prevent insect infestation issues.

Get your yearly tune-up.

Coastal Service Experts offers A/C system maintenance plans to provide you with a proactive approach to taking care of your cooling system. Seasonal maintenance is crucial not just to keep your air conditioning equipment working properly, but also to keep your warranty valid.
