How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Many homeowners ask what they can do to prevent A/C system repair problems in addition to changing their air filter each month. Barlow Service Experts is here with a few recommendations to help your A/C system keep up with the dog days of summer.

Power off your air conditioner while mowing.

To prevent lawn clippings from infiltrating 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 obstructions 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, be sure your return air grills are open and have plenty of space around them.

Get routine pest control service.

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

Get your seasonal tune-up.
