TIP! Keep your outdoor units free of debris when you are mowing the lawn. Get the grass shot away from your unit.

If the condenser for your HVAC system is located outside, make sure you clear away any debris that might settle in or around it. Your HVAC system may run into problems after storms if it is surrounded by debris. It may begin to overheat, causing massive damage.

TIP! If the fan on your condenser includes oil ports, they must be lubricated annually. You will notice these ports have a rubber or metal cap covering them.

If the condenser fan has oil parts, then you need to lubricate it at least once per year. You will notice these ports have a rubber or metal cap covering them. Buy an SAE 20 product that is lightweight, and then put no more than ten drops into the ports.

TIP! When the weather starts to cool down, make sure you turn off outdoor condenser units. To prevent damage, turn off your unit if the outside temperature is less than 60 degrees.

If you are choosing where to place your outdoor compressor device, try to put it in a place where there is plenty of shade. The cooler air entering the unit will require less work to get to the proper temperature.

Hvac System
