How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Several homeowners ask what they can do to prevent air conditioning repair problems besides just changing their air filter each month. Rob's Albertan Service Experts is here with a couple options to help your A/C system keep up with the high temperatures of summer.

Power off your air conditioner while mowing.

To help stop lawn clippings from getting into 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 plants 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 maintenance.

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

Get your annual tune-up.

Rob's Albertan Service Experts offers A/C system maintenance plans to provide customers with a proactive approach to taking care of your equipment. Seasonal maintenance is crucial not just to keep your air conditioner working properly, but also to keep your warranty valid.
