How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Many homeowners ask what they can do to avoid air conditioning repair problems in addition to changing their air filter each month. McElroy Service Experts is here with some suggestions 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 A/C equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are mowing. You should also keep the outdoor system clear from any plants so it has enough room to perform properly.

Keep air supply vents open and free from obstruction.

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

Get routine pest control visits.

Bugs can make their way into the electrical components within your outdoor cooling equipment. These bugs could seriously cause the air conditioner 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.
