How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Many customers ask what they can do to avoid cooling equipment repair problems beyond changing their air filter every 30 days. Strand Brothers Service Experts is here with some suggestions to help your air conditioning system keep up with the dog days of summer.

Turn off your system while mowing.

To avoid lawn clippings from infiltrating your outside cooling equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are doing yardwork. You should also keep the outdoor equipment clear from any vegetation or brush so it has enough room to perform properly.

Keep air supply vents open and free from obstruction.

To ensure proper airflow, make sure your return air grills are open and have plenty of room around them.

Get routine pest control service.

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

Get your yearly tune-up.

Strand Brothers Service Experts offers cooling equipment maintenance plans to provide you with a proactive approach to taking care of your cooling system. Seasonal maintenance is crucial not just to keep your cooling system working properly, but also to keep your warranty valid.
