How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Many homeowners ask what they can do to avoid cooling equipment repair problems besides just changing their air filter each month. Golden Seal Service Experts is here with a few recommendations to help your A/C system keep up with the dog days of summer.

Turn off your air conditioner while mowing.

To avoid lawn clippings from entering your outside cooling equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are landscaping. You should also keep the outdoor equipment clear from any obstructions so it has enough room to perform properly.

Keep air supply vents open and free from obstruction.

To make sure you have proper airflow, make sure your return air grills are open and have plenty of room around them.

Get routine pest control maintenance.

Bugs can get 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 air conditioner can help prevent insect infestation issues.

Get your seasonal tune-up.

Golden Seal Service Experts offers cooling equipment maintenance plans to provide homeowners with a proactive approach to taking care of your cooling system. Seasonal maintenance is critical not just to keep your cooling system working properly, but also to keep your warranty valid.
