May 18, 2017

Several customers ask what they can do to prevent cooling equipment repair problems in addition to changing their air filter monthly. Jack Nelson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a couple options to help your cooling equipment keep up with the heat of summer.

Shut 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 landscaping. You should also keep the outdoor unit clear from any obstructions so it has adequate 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 visits.

Bugs can find their way into the electrical components within your outdoor A/C equipment. These bugs could actually cause the air conditioner to malfunction so spreading an environmentally safe pesticide around the base of your outdoor system can help stop insect infestation issues.
