How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Several customers ask what they can do to prevent cooling equipment repair problems beyond changing their air filter every 30 days. Orangutan Home Services is here with a few recommendations to help your A/C system keep up with the high temperatures of summer.

Turn off your air conditioner while mowing.

To avoid lawn clippings from entering your outside air conditioning equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are landscaping. You should also keep the outdoor unit clear from any vegetation or brush so it has enough 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 open space around them.

Get routine pest control maintenance.

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

Get your annual tune-up.

Orangutan Home Services offers air conditioning maintenance plans to provide homeowners with a proactive approach to taking care of your equipment. Annual maintenance is critical not just to keep your air conditioning equipment working properly, but also to keep your warranty valid.
