I have 3 access points, that I plan to install on my Local Area Network and I want to use them at the same time.

Is this possible?

It is possible to use Access points on the same LAN.  You just need to attach all of them, to the same hub or switches via Cat 5 Ethernet cable.

Doing this, will greatly improve your network's wireless range.

If I can use them at the same time, I am pretty sure the wireless signal of each access point will interfere with each other.

What do I do to fix this?

You have multiple access points but according to standard specifications each access point should have its own unique channel.  
 
The range of channels 1 to 11 is used north America. This allows up to 11 access points to be set up on one LAN.  
 
For this purpose, all the access points should have the same SSID.
 
 All of the devices should have the same Keys, Security Mode, and Logarithm in case of enabling wireless security.
