How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Many homeowners ask what they can do to prevent A/C system repair problems beyond changing their air filter monthly. Eveready Service Experts is here with some suggestions to help your air conditioning system keep up with the high temperatures of summer.

Turn off your system while mowing.

To avoid 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 unit clear from any vegetation or brush 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, confirm your return air grills are open and have plenty of open space around them.

Get routine pest control visits.

Bugs can find 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 seasonal tune-up.
