How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Several customers ask what they can do to help stop A/C system repair problems beyond changing their air filter monthly. D & K Heating Service Experts is here with a few recommendations to help your cooling equipment keep up with the dog days of summer.

Turn off your air conditioner while mowing.

To help stop lawn clippings from getting into your outside cooling equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are mowing. You should also keep the outdoor unit clear from any plants so it has enough 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 room around them.

Get routine pest control maintenance.

Bugs can find their way into the electrical components within your outdoor A/C equipment. These bugs could actually cause the air conditioner to malfunction so spreading an environmentally safe pesticide around the base of your outdoor air conditioner can help stop insect infestation issues.

Get your annual tune-up.

D & K Heating Service Experts offers A/C system maintenance plans to provide you with a proactive approach to taking care of your air conditioning system. Seasonal maintenance is critical not just to keep your air conditioning equipment working properly, but also to keep your warranty valid.
