How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Many customers ask what they can do to avoid cooling equipment repair problems besides just changing their air filter monthly. Mountainwest Service Experts is here with a couple options to help your A/C system keep up with the high temperatures of summer.

Shut off your system while mowing.

To prevent lawn clippings from entering your outside A/C equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are landscaping. You should also keep the outdoor equipment clear from any obstructions so it has optimal 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 space around them.

Get routine pest control visits.

Bugs can get into the electrical components within your outdoor air conditioning 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 seasonal tune-up.

Mountainwest Service Experts offers A/C system maintenance plans to provide you with a proactive approach to taking care of your equipment. Seasonal maintenance is critical not just to keep your air conditioning equipment working properly, but also to keep your warranty valid.
