How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Many customers ask what they can do to help stop cooling equipment repair problems in addition to changing their air filter monthly. Strand Brothers Service Experts is here with a couple options to help your cooling equipment keep up with the heat of summer.

Shut off your equipment while mowing.

To prevent lawn clippings from entering 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 obstructions 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, be sure your return air grills are open and have plenty of space around them.

Get routine pest control visits.

Bugs can make their way into the electrical components within your outdoor A/C equipment. These bugs could potentially cause the equipment to malfunction so spreading an environmentally safe pesticide around the base of your outdoor system can help prevent insect infestation issues.

Get your yearly tune-up.

Strand Brothers Service Experts offers A/C system maintenance plans to provide customers with a proactive approach to taking care of your air conditioning system. Yearly maintenance is crucial not just to keep your air conditioning equipment working properly, but also to keep your warranty valid.
