How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Many homeowners ask what they can do to prevent A/C system repair problems besides just changing their air filter each month. Knochelmann Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a few recommendations to help your cooling equipment keep up with the high temperatures of summer.

Turn off your system while mowing.

To prevent lawn clippings from getting into your outside A/C equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are mowing. You should also keep the outdoor system clear from any obstructions so it has enough 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 maintenance.

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

Get your yearly tune-up.

Knochelmann Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning offers air conditioning maintenance plans to provide homeowners with a proactive approach to taking care of your air conditioning system. Seasonal maintenance is crucial not just to keep your air conditioner working properly, but also to keep your warranty valid.
