How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Many customers ask what they can do to avoid cooling equipment repair problems in addition to changing their air filter each month. Finch Air Conditioning & Heating is here with a couple options to help your air conditioning system keep up with the heat of summer.

Turn off your system while mowing.

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

Keep air supply vents open and free from obstruction.

To make sure you have proper airflow, be 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 air conditioning equipment. These bugs could actually cause the air conditioner to malfunction so spreading an environmentally safe pesticide around the base of your outdoor equipment can help prevent insect infestation issues.

Get your yearly tune-up.
