Your outdoor HVAC unit may suffer when trees lose leaves. Make sure the unit’s fan grill is cleaned often during the leaves begin to fall. The fan must be unobstructed to work properly, and if it becomes blocked, you’ll have a lot of headaches eventually.
Put outdoor unit in places with shade.
Turn off any outdoor condenser when it’s getting cold. This should turn it off to prevent damage if the temperature drops below 60ºF to avoid damage. This simple tip will help keep the life of your unit.
Don’t let your house get way too hot to where it’s dangerous. An air conditioning unit is really only able to reduce the internal temperature of your home approximately twenty degrees in a fair time. If the temperature in your home rises to 100 degrees F or higher, then you will only be able to reasonably cool to around 80. This won’t be a safe and comfortable temperature for you to sleep in.
Research the companies before hiring them. Check with the best one for your situation. These steps will help ensure you make a better decision.
Look for air conditioner sizing calculators online to truly understand what size of unit you need for your home. Look at the manual or on the manufacturer website for air conditioners.
