How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Several customers ask what they can do to prevent A/C system repair problems beyond changing their air filter monthly. Bryant Heating & Cooling Service Experts is here with a few recommendations to help your cooling equipment keep up with the dog days of summer.

Power off your equipment while mowing.

To avoid lawn clippings from infiltrating your outside cooling equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are doing yardwork. You should also keep the outdoor unit clear from any obstructions so it has adequate room to perform properly.

Keep air supply vents open and free from obstruction.

To make sure you have proper airflow, make sure your return air grills are open and have plenty of room around them.

Get routine pest control visits.

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

Get your yearly tune-up.

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