How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Many homeowners ask what they can do to avoid air conditioning repair problems besides just changing their air filter each month. Peitz Service Experts is here with some suggestions to help your air conditioning system keep up with the high temperatures of summer.

Shut off your system while mowing.

To help stop lawn clippings from infiltrating 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 enough 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 space around them.

Get routine pest control service.

Bugs can find their way into the electrical components within your outdoor A/C 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 annual tune-up.
