How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Many homeowners ask what they can do to prevent air conditioning repair problems besides just changing their air filter every 30 days. Fras-Air/General Service Experts is here with a few recommendations to help your air conditioning system keep up with the heat of summer.

Shut off your equipment while mowing.

To help stop lawn clippings from infiltrating your outside A/C equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are doing yardwork. You should also keep the outdoor unit 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, confirm your return air grills are open and have plenty of space around them.

Get routine pest control service.

Bugs can make their way into the electrical components within your outdoor air conditioning equipment. These bugs could actually cause the air conditioner to malfunction so spreading an environmentally safe pesticide around the base of your outdoor system can help avoid insect infestation issues.

Get your annual tune-up.
