How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Many customers ask what they can do to avoid cooling equipment repair problems besides just changing their air filter monthly. Parker Pearce Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a few recommendations to help your air conditioning system keep up with the dog days of summer.

Power off your equipment while mowing.

To prevent lawn clippings from entering your outside A/C equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are landscaping. You should also keep the outdoor system clear from any vegetation or brush so it has enough room to perform properly.

Keep air supply vents open and free from obstruction.

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

Get routine pest control maintenance.

Bugs can make 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 equipment can help stop insect infestation issues.

Get your seasonal tune-up.

Parker Pearce Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning offers air conditioning maintenance plans to provide you with a proactive approach to taking care of your equipment. Annual maintenance is crucial not just to keep your air conditioning equipment working properly, but also to keep your warranty valid.
