TIP! Once it grows cold outside, turn off your outside condenser unit. If it’s lower than 60 degrees, the time has come to turn it off.

These suggestions should benefit you in taking care of your heating and cooling issues. Only bad things happen when you fail to perform routine inspections. You are lucky to find this article so you know how to ensure your HVAC system provided proper heating and cooling.
