How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Many homeowners ask what they can do to avoid cooling equipment repair problems besides just changing their air filter every 30 days. Fras-Air/General 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.

Turn 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 mowing. 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, make sure your return air grills are open and have plenty of open space around them.

Get routine pest control service.

Bugs can make their way into the electrical components within your outdoor cooling equipment. These bugs could potentially 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.

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