How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Several homeowners ask what they can do to help stop air conditioning repair problems beyond changing their air filter monthly. Midland Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a few recommendations to help your cooling equipment keep up with the high temperatures of summer.

Shut off your system while mowing.

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

Keep air supply vents open and free from obstruction.

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

Get routine pest control visits.

Bugs can find their way 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 equipment can help stop insect infestation issues.
