How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Many homeowners ask what they can do to avoid air conditioning repair problems in addition to changing their air filter monthly. Golden Seal Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with some suggestions to help your A/C system keep up with the heat of summer.

Shut 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 system clear from any vegetation or brush so it has enough room to perform properly.

Keep air supply vents open and free from obstruction.

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

Get routine pest control maintenance.

Bugs can make their way into the electrical components within your outdoor air conditioning 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 avoid insect infestation issues.

Get your seasonal tune-up.

Golden Seal Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning 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 air conditioner working properly, but also to keep your warranty valid.
