TIP! Your HVAC unit may suffer when trees start to lose their leaves. Be sure to clean your fan grill frequently when trees nearby are shedding.

If there are condenser units as part of your HVAC system, clean them often as they tend to have lots of debris. After a wind or rain storm things may pile up, causing problems with your HVAC system. It may begin to overheat, causing massive damage.

TIP! If there are oil ports on your fan condenser, lubricate it annually. You can easily find the ports as they have a rubber or metal cap.

Leaves and debris can damage your system. Make sure the fan’s grill is cleaned often during the fall. The fan must stay clear in order to function, and if it gets blocked, you will have to contend with problems.

TIP! Put your outdoor unit in places with shade. As it brings in cool air to cool, you will save a lot of money.

Check to determine if the fan condenser on your HVAC system is equipped with oil ports, and if it is, be sure to lubricate every year. You’ll find these ports are covered with a metal or rubber cap. Use SAE 20 oil that is lightweight and detergent free, and put ten drops or fewer into each one. Make sure not to overfill them.

TIP! Consumers are usually advised to have their HVAC systems inspected twice a year. Ideally, you should have it looked at in the spring and fall so you know everything is set for the hot and cold months.

If you can choose the place where your outdoor compressor goes, pick a spot with lots of shade. The cooler air that the unit can suck in, the less work it will need to do to further cool the air.

TIP! When it gets cold outside, the outdoor condenser unit should be turned off. When the temperature goes below 60 degrees, shut off the unit in order to prevent damage.

Selecting your HVAC system can be hard to do, and it may overwhelm you sometimes. After reading the above advice, it should be a little easier. Review and apply all of the tips you have just learned.
