How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Many homeowners ask what they can do to prevent air conditioning repair problems in addition to changing their air filter every 30 days. Broad Ripple Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with some suggestions to help your air conditioning system keep up with the heat of summer.

Turn off your air conditioner while mowing.

To prevent lawn clippings from infiltrating your outside cooling equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are mowing. You should also keep the outdoor equipment clear from any plants so it has optimal 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 space around them.

Get routine pest control visits.

Bugs can get into the electrical components within your outdoor A/C equipment. These bugs could potentially cause the system 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.

Annual maintenance is critical not just to keep your air conditioner working properly, but also to keep your warranty valid.
