How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Many customers ask what they can do to help stop air conditioning repair problems besides just changing their air filter every 30 days. Donelson Air Service Experts is here with a few recommendations to help your cooling equipment keep up with the high temperatures of summer.

Shut off your air conditioner while mowing.

To prevent lawn clippings from entering 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 obstructions 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, make sure your return air grills are open and have plenty of space around them.

Get routine pest control maintenance.

Bugs can get into the electrical components within your outdoor cooling equipment. These bugs could seriously cause the air conditioner to malfunction so spreading an environmentally safe pesticide around the base of your outdoor equipment can help avoid insect infestation issues.

Get your seasonal tune-up.
