How to Prevent Air Conditioning Problems

May 18, 2017

Several homeowners ask what they can do to help stop A/C system repair problems besides just changing their air filter monthly. Midway Services is here with some suggestions to help your air conditioning system keep up with the dog days of summer.

Turn off your air conditioner while mowing.

To prevent lawn clippings from getting into your outside A/C equipment, turn your thermostat to “off” while you are mowing. You should also keep the outdoor unit 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 room around them.

Get routine pest control maintenance.

Bugs can find their way into the electrical components within your outdoor cooling 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 avoid insect infestation issues.

Get your seasonal tune-up.

Midway Services offers cooling equipment maintenance plans to provide customers with a proactive approach to taking care of your equipment. Yearly maintenance is critical not just to keep your air conditioning equipment working properly, but also to keep your warranty valid.
