How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Many customers ask what they can do to prevent cooling equipment repair problems besides just changing their air filter each month. Epperson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a few recommendations to help your air conditioning system keep up with the dog days of summer.

Power off your equipment while mowing.

To help stop lawn clippings from infiltrating your outside cooling equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are mowing. You should also keep the outdoor unit clear from any plants so it has enough 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 space around them.

Get routine pest control visits.

Bugs can make their way into the electrical components within your outdoor A/C equipment. These bugs could potentially cause the system 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.

Epperson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning offers air conditioning maintenance plans to provide homeowners with a proactive approach to taking care of your air conditioning system. Yearly maintenance is crucial not just to keep your cooling system working properly, but also to keep your warranty valid.
