How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Several homeowners ask what they can do to avoid A/C system repair problems besides just changing their air filter each month. Kingston Home Services by Enercare is here with a few recommendations to help your A/C system keep up with the high temperatures of summer.

Shut off your equipment while mowing.

To avoid lawn clippings from infiltrating your outside air conditioning equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are doing yardwork. You should also keep the outdoor equipment clear from any obstructions so it has optimal 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 service.

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

Get your annual tune-up.
