How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Several homeowners ask what they can do to prevent cooling equipment repair problems besides just changing their air filter every 30 days. Pardee Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a few recommendations to help your cooling equipment keep up with the heat of summer.

Power off your equipment while mowing.

To prevent lawn clippings from getting into your outside cooling equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are doing yardwork. You should also keep the outdoor system clear from any obstructions so it has adequate room to perform properly.

Keep air supply vents open and free from obstruction.

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

Get routine pest control visits.

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

Get your annual tune-up.
