Outside Condenser

TIP! When the trees are losing their leaves, your HVAC unit can suffer. At least twice a week, you need to clean the grill of your fan.

Keep outside condenser fans running smoothly by cleaning fan blades and coils before the summer begins. Always make sure you shut off the power before you do any work on the unit other than superficial cleaning. Additionally, it’s important to clear out leaves and other debris from the outside condenser unit.

TIP! If the condenser fan has oil parts, then you need to lubricate it at least once per year. You can easily find the ports as they have a rubber or metal cap.

If the outside of your home has condenser units, ensure they are constantly cleaned. After a wind or rain storm things may pile up, causing problems with your system. Overheating can occur, which often spells disaster for your system.

TIP! If you are choosing where to place your outdoor compressor device, try to put it in a place where there is plenty of shade. The cooler the air that the unit is able to access, the less work it has to perform.

Don’t let your outdoor HVAC units get smothered with clippings anytime you mow the yard. Aim your grass cuttings in a direction away from your unit. Do the same when blowing snow or leaves.

TIP! You can boost the efficiency of your HVAC unit by replacing it with a new energy efficient one or moving your old one to a shady outside location. If your air conditioner is able to constantly suck in cool air, it won’t have to work overtime to cool your space, which can in turn save you money on your electricity bills.

If the condenser fan has oil parts, then you need to lubricate it at least once per year. The port usually has either a rubber or metal cap on top of it. Get an oil that is SAE 20 and put about 10 drops into each port, but don’t overfill it.

TIP! Make sure you have your HVAC system checked at least twice a year. This should be done in the fall and again in the spring.

As this article has shown you, you can do quite a bit to get help your HVAC system work properly. Making certain that is operates optimally is a great idea. Put this advice to good use and HVAC installation or maintenance will no longer be an issue.
