How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Several customers ask what they can do to avoid cooling equipment repair problems besides just changing their air filter every 30 days. Stevenson Service Experts is here with a couple options to help your cooling equipment keep up with the high temperatures of summer.

Shut off your system while mowing.

To help stop lawn clippings from entering your outside air conditioning equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are landscaping. You should also keep the outdoor equipment clear from any vegetation or brush so it has optimal 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 maintenance.

Bugs can find their way into the electrical components within your outdoor A/C equipment. These bugs could seriously cause the system 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.

Stevenson Service Experts offers air conditioning maintenance plans to provide homeowners with a proactive approach to taking care of your equipment. Seasonal maintenance is crucial not just to keep your air conditioning equipment working properly, but also to keep your warranty valid.
