How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Many homeowners ask what they can do to help stop air conditioning repair problems besides just changing their air filter every 30 days. BW/Cook Service Experts is here with a few recommendations to help your A/C system keep up with the dog days of summer.

Power off your air conditioner while mowing.

To prevent 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 adequate room to perform properly.

Keep air supply vents open and free from obstruction.

To ensure proper airflow, make sure your return air grills are open and have plenty of room around them.

Get routine pest control visits.

Bugs can find their way into the electrical components within your outdoor air conditioning equipment. These bugs could potentially 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 annual tune-up.
