How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Several customers ask what they can do to prevent A/C system repair problems beyond changing their air filter every 30 days. Aramendia Plumbing, Heating and Air is here with some suggestions to help your air conditioning system keep up with the high temperatures of summer.

Shut off your air conditioner while mowing.

To avoid lawn clippings from getting into your outside air conditioning 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 adequate room to perform properly.

Keep air supply vents open and free from obstruction.

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

Get routine pest control service.

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

Get your seasonal tune-up.
