May 18, 2017

Several homeowners ask what they can do to help stop air conditioning repair problems beyond changing their air filter monthly. Comfort Masters Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a few recommendations to help your A/C system keep up with the high temperatures of summer.

Shut 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 mowing. You should also keep the outdoor system clear from any vegetation or brush so it has enough room to perform properly.

Keep air supply vents open and free from obstruction.

To make sure you have proper airflow, confirm your return air grills are open and have plenty of room around them.

Get routine pest control maintenance.

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 equipment can help avoid insect infestation issues.

Get your seasonal tune-up.
