TIP! A good place to place your compressor unit outside is in a shady spot. The cooler the air that the unit is able to access, the less work it has to perform.

You should clean your condenser fan’s blades and coils every spring. Before you do anything, however, turn the power off. Remove the grill and carefully clean the blades and surrounding areas.

TIP! During cold weather , be sure to turn off outdoor condenser units. If the temperature outside is less than 60ºF, be sure to turn off the unit so that you don’t damage it.

Lubricate your fan condenser if it has oil ports. You’ll see that the ports here are closed with a rubber or metal cap. Look for an oil that is lightweight and then put about 10 drops inside the port. You don’t want to put in too much.

TIP! If possible, your single pane windows should be replaced with double-paned ones. In warmer months, these windows will help to maintain the cooler inside temperature.

In order to boost efficiency, place new outdoor units or move your current unit to a place which resides in the shade. You save money this way because the air conditioner is now pulling in cooler air, which is easier to cool further.

TIP! Having a programmable thermostat installed is a money saving idea. It will help save on your heating and cooling costs by turning itself down at certain times.

Most people who own homes are not happy when something happens to their heat or air conditioning. That said, a bit of knowledge goes a long way. Use these tips to help ease the process when you run into an issue.
