TIP! When spring rolls around, give the condenser fan blades and coils a good clean. Don’t forget to disconnect the power first.

TIP! Do not allow grass clippings to cover the outdoor unit of your HVAC system. Shoot the grass away from the unit.

If your condenser units are outisde, make sure any debris is cleaned from them regularly. After a wind or rain storm things may pile up, causing problems with your HVAC system. Overheating can occur, which often spells disaster for your system.

Grass Clippings

TIP! Lubricate your fan condenser if it has oil ports. You will see rubber or metal caps covering the ports.

When you mow your lawn, take care that you don’t get grass clippings all over your outdoor unit. Direct the grass clippings in a direction away from the HVAC unit. This also applies to blowing leaves or moving debris. Just be careful with that exterior HVAC unit.

TIP! A good place to place your compressor unit outside is in a shady spot. If you have a unit taking in air that’s cooler, it won’t have to work so hard to cool air that it sends to your home.
