How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Many customers ask what they can do to help stop cooling equipment repair problems beyond changing their air filter each month. McKinley Heating Service Experts is here with a few recommendations to help your air conditioning system keep up with the high temperatures of summer.

Power off your equipment while mowing.

To avoid lawn clippings from entering your outside cooling equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are doing yardwork. You should also keep the outdoor system clear from any obstructions so it has adequate 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 cooling equipment. These bugs could actually 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.

McKinley Heating Service Experts offers A/C system maintenance plans to provide homeowners with a proactive approach to taking care of your cooling system. Annual maintenance is crucial not just to keep your air conditioner working properly, but also to keep your warranty valid.
