May 18, 2017

Several customers ask what they can do to help stop cooling equipment repair problems in addition to changing their air filter each month. Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a couple options to help your A/C system keep up with the dog days of summer.

Shut off your system while mowing.

To prevent lawn clippings from getting into your outside cooling equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are mowing. You should also keep the outdoor system clear from any plants so it has adequate 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 open space around them.

Get routine pest control visits.

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

Get your seasonal tune-up.

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