How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Several customers ask what they can do to avoid air conditioning repair problems besides just changing their air filter monthly. R & M Climate Control Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a few recommendations to help your A/C system keep up with the heat of summer.

Shut off your air conditioner while mowing.

To avoid lawn clippings from getting into 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 adequate room to perform properly.

Keep air supply vents open and free from obstruction.

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

Get routine pest control maintenance.

Bugs can make their way into the electrical components within your outdoor air conditioning equipment. These bugs could potentially cause the air conditioner 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.

R & M Climate Control Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning offers A/C system maintenance plans to provide customers with a proactive approach to taking care of your air conditioning system. Seasonal maintenance is important not just to keep your air conditioning equipment working properly, but also to keep your warranty valid.
