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 each month. Freschi Service Experts is here with a few recommendations to help your air conditioning system keep up with the high temperatures of summer.

Power off your air conditioner while mowing.

To prevent lawn clippings from getting into 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 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 cooling equipment. These bugs could seriously cause the system to malfunction so spreading an environmentally safe pesticide around the base of your outdoor air conditioner can help prevent insect infestation issues.

Get your annual tune-up.

Freschi Service Experts offers air conditioning maintenance plans to provide homeowners with a proactive approach to taking care of your equipment. Seasonal maintenance is critical not just to keep your air conditioner working properly, but also to keep your warranty valid.
