How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Several homeowners ask what they can do to prevent air conditioning repair problems beyond changing their air filter monthly. TML Service Experts is here with some suggestions to help your cooling equipment keep up with the dog days of summer.

Shut off your equipment while mowing.

To avoid lawn clippings from getting into your outside A/C equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are landscaping. You should also keep the outdoor system clear from any plants 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, make sure 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 A/C equipment. These bugs could seriously 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 yearly tune-up.

TML Service Experts offers A/C system maintenance plans to provide customers with a proactive approach to taking care of your equipment. Yearly maintenance is important not just to keep your air conditioner working properly, but also to keep your warranty valid.
