TIP! If you can choose the place where your outdoor compressor goes, pick a spot with lots of shade. If it sucks in cool air, it will need to work less to coll the air inside, which can make it last longer.

If the fan on your condenser includes oil ports, they must be lubricated annually. They generally have a rubber or metal cap on them. Get an oil that is SAE 20 and put about 10 drops into each port, but don’t overfill it.

For maximum efficiency, place outdoor units in a shady spot. This will help you save on your energy bill.

TIP! Be sure to have twice annual HVAC system checks. This should be done in the fall and again in the spring.

Get your HVAC unit serviced two times per year. Checks in the spring as well as in autumn are the best. Although there might not be any noticeable issues, it is important to provide regular upkeep to prevent bad things from happening.

TIP! Replace single pane windows by installing double pane, if possible. Double-pane windows keep inside air cooler, allowing you to reduce AC usage in the summertime.
