May 18, 2017

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

Turn off your air conditioner while mowing.

To prevent lawn clippings from entering 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 optimal 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 open space around them.

Get routine pest control visits.

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

Get your annual tune-up.

Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning offers A/C system maintenance plans to provide customers with a proactive approach to taking care of your cooling system. Yearly maintenance is important not just to keep your air conditioning equipment working properly, but also to keep your warranty valid.
