How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Several customers ask what they can do to prevent cooling equipment repair problems besides just changing their air filter each month. Norrell Service Experts is here with a few recommendations to help your A/C system keep up with the high temperatures of summer.

Turn off your equipment while mowing.

To prevent 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 unit clear from any vegetation or brush so it has optimal room to perform properly.

Keep air supply vents open and free from obstruction.

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

Get routine pest control visits.

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

Get your annual tune-up.

Norrell Service Experts offers air conditioning maintenance plans to provide homeowners with a proactive approach to taking care of your equipment. Yearly maintenance is crucial not just to keep your air conditioner working properly, but also to keep your warranty valid.
