How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Several homeowners ask what they can do to prevent A/C system repair problems beyond changing their air filter monthly. Atmostemp Service Experts is here with a few recommendations to help your A/C system keep up with the heat of summer.

Shut off your system while mowing.

To prevent lawn clippings from getting into your outside cooling equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are doing yardwork. You should also keep the outdoor system clear from any plants so it has adequate room to perform properly.

Keep air supply vents open and free from obstruction.

To be sure your home has proper airflow, make sure your return air grills are open and have plenty of space around them.

Get routine pest control service.

Bugs can find their way 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 equipment can help stop insect infestation issues.

Get your seasonal tune-up.
