Fan Blades

TIP! Every spring you should clean the coils and fan blades on your condenser fan. Be sure to turn the power off first; you don’t want anything to move.

By the end of spring, the fan blades and coils of your condenser should be thoroughly cleaned, so operation can proceed with greater efficiency. Before you do clean the coils and fan blades, always take the precaution of turning off all power to the unit. Also, be sure to clear leaves and debris from your condenser unit.

Clean your outdoor condensers often. Excess debris can really affect your system’s quality. It will damage the system by overheating.

When spring rolls around, give the condenser fan blades and coils a good clean. First, the power should be turned off so things don’t move as you work. Then, take off the grill and get the blades out. Clean everything with care.

TIP! If your condenser comes with oil ports, you should lubricate it yearly. A rubber or metal cap is typically placed over such ports.

Keep your outdoor units free of debris when your cutting grass. When you work with your lawn mower, make sure it spits the grass to the side opposite of your unit. This also applies to blowing leaves or moving debris. Just be careful with that exterior HVAC unit.

TIP! As the temperature outside drops, remember to turn off your outdoor condenser unit. If the outside temp is under 60 degrees, turn the unit off to prevent damage.

When a homeowner’s HVAC unit stops working, they could find themselves in a real pickle. But if they know what’s going on, they can quickly fix the situation. The suggestions listed will certainly lead you down a path towards positive heating and cooling function throughout the year.
