TIP! Clean any debris that accumulates on an external condenser unit. You don’t know when things are going to pile up, like right after it’s windy or rains, and that can ruin your system.

Be aware of the type of system that is installed in your home prior to calling a contractor to fix it. Write down the make, model, and any maintenance history. That way you can provide the contractor with all the necessary information.

TIP! Every spring you need to make sure your condenser fan’s coils and blades on the fan part are clean. Before you do so, shut off the power to ensure that none of the parts will move while you work on it.

In order to keep your outside condenser fan running efficiently, make sure the coils and the fan blades are cleaned before the cooling season begins. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit. In addition, be sure to get rid of any leaves or other debris that may have accumulated on the outside condenser.

TIP! Avoid showering your outdoor unit with grass clippings when you mow the lawn. Now so the grass clippings are shot away from your unit.

Leaves and debris can damage your system. Clean the fan grill often when leaves are falling. When blockages restrict the flow of air to the fan, you could end up with serious issues on your hands.

TIP! Lubricate your fan condenser at least once a year. The port usually has either a rubber or metal cap on top of it.

Lubricate your condenser yearly if it has oil ports. These are usually covered with rubber or metal caps. You should select an SAE 20 oil since it is lightweight and does not contain detergent. Be sure to use just 10 drops or so, or your system may overfill.

Try to choose a shady place to locate the outdoor compressor device. This will limit the work that it has to do.

TIP! In order to boost efficiency, place new outdoor units or move your current unit to a place which resides in the shade. As you get your air conditioner to suck in cool air it won’t have to do too much work to cool it which saves you some money.

A working HVAC system is crucial for a comfortable home. When simple problems occur in your system, they can become serious problems if you ignore them. This information will help you decide what to do.
