TIP! Before the summer you should clean out your condenser fan’s blades and coils. Except when cleaning the outside, turn the unit off when performing any type of maintenance.

If you have units that are condensers outside of the home, keep them free of debris. Things pile up after storms and damage your system. It may even overheat, which can ruin your system.

TIP! Cover your unit when you are mowing the lawn. Aim the grass in a different direction from the unit.

Leaves and debris can damage your system. When you see nearby trees shedding their leaves, clean the fan grill on your unit constantly. The fan needs unobstructed air flow, and if debris is blocking this air flow, then your system could suffer.

TIP! During the fall, leaves can gather around your HVAC. During this time of year, check and clear off the fan grill on your unit on a regular basis.

Lubricate the oil ports on your condenser once each year. They are usually fitted with a rubber or metal cap. Choose a SAE 20 oil whch is lightweight and non-detergent and place 10 drops or less into each port, ensuring it doesn’t overfill.

TIP! If the fan condenser on your unit has ports for oil, make sure you lubricate it once a year. They are usually fitted with a rubber or metal cap.

When selecting a location for an outdoor compressor, opt for a shady area, if possible. When the unit sucks in cooler air, then less work is required to cool it further which in turn boosts the units efficiency.

TIP! Boost energy efficiency by putting your condenser unit in the shade. As it brings in cool air to cool, you will save a lot of money.

Consumers are usually advised to have their HVAC systems inspected twice a year. The spring and autumn times are the best time to have it checked. Check it out just to be safe even if there is nothing broken.

TIP! Once it grows cold outside, turn off your outside condenser unit. The unit will become damaged if you do not take care of it.

Turn off any outdoor condensers you have when the weather gets cold. To avoid damage, units should be turned off when temperatures are below 60 degrees. This will ensure your system stays in good working order every year, saving you money on costly repairs.

TIP! If you are a homeowner, or if you can get permission from your landlord, install double-paned windows in place of any single panes in your home. They help cool air remain inside your home, effectively cutting back on how much you have to run your air conditioner.
