How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Many customers ask what they can do to prevent A/C system repair problems besides just changing their air filter monthly. Robinson Service Experts is here with a few recommendations to help your air conditioning system keep up with the dog days of summer.

Turn off your equipment while mowing.

To prevent lawn clippings from entering your outside A/C equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are landscaping. You should also keep the outdoor equipment clear from any vegetation or brush 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 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 system to malfunction so spreading an environmentally safe pesticide around the base of your outdoor equipment can help prevent insect infestation issues.

Get your annual tune-up.

Robinson Service Experts offers A/C system maintenance plans to provide you with a proactive approach to taking care of your equipment. Yearly maintenance is critical not just to keep your air conditioner working properly, but also to keep your warranty valid.
