Always make sure you are up-to-date about your HVAC unit. Know what the manufacturer’s name is, which particular model you have and what’s gone on with the unit in the past. This will help you give the new contractor the necessary information.

Outdoor condenser units need to be cleaned regularly. Falling leaves and wind or rain may cause debris to reduce the efficiency of your unit. It can cause your system to malfunction by overheating.

TIP! It is very important that your HVAC system is serviced two times a year. This should be done in the fall and again in the spring.

Keep your outdoor units free of debris when you are mowing the lawn. Aim your grass cuttings in a direction away from your unit. Do the same when blowing snow or leaves.
