How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

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

Power off your air conditioner while mowing.

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

Keep air supply vents open and free from obstruction.

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

Get routine pest control service.

Bugs can find 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.
