How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Many customers ask what they can do to help stop air conditioning repair problems beyond changing their air filter monthly. McKinley Heating Service Experts is here with some suggestions to help your air conditioning system keep up with the high temperatures of summer.

Power off your system 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 optimal room to perform properly.

Keep air supply vents open and free from obstruction.

To ensure proper airflow, confirm your return air grills are open and have plenty of open space around them.

Get routine pest control service.

Bugs can get 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 stop insect infestation issues.

Get your seasonal tune-up.
