How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Many homeowners ask what they can do to prevent cooling equipment repair problems besides just changing their air filter every 30 days. Becht/Givens Service Experts is here with a couple options to help your air conditioning system keep up with the heat of summer.

Turn off your air conditioner while mowing.

To avoid lawn clippings from infiltrating your outside cooling equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are doing yardwork. You should also keep the outdoor system clear from any vegetation or brush so it has enough room to perform properly.

Keep air supply vents open and free from obstruction.

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

Get routine pest control maintenance.

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

Get your seasonal tune-up.

Becht/Givens Service Experts offers cooling equipment maintenance plans to provide customers with a proactive approach to taking care of your air conditioning system. Yearly maintenance is important not just to keep your cooling system working properly, but also to keep your warranty valid.
