3 Tips for Caring for Your Outdoor HVAC Unit

An outdoor HVAC unit can keep your home nice and cool during the summer, but since it is outdoors, that means it’s exposed to the elements and needs to be cared for properly in order to ensure optimal performance. The good news is that it’s actually pretty easy to care for your outdoor HVAC unit. Here are 3 simple tips to keep in mind.

  1. Trim the shrubs and bushes around the outdoor unit. You don’t want foliage to interfere with the unit’s operation, so perform a little yard work to keep the area around your unit clear.
  2. Check for fallen leaves and other debris regularly. Make sure you give your outdoor unit a simple check and cleaning on a regular basis to keep it from getting clogged up with all types of debris.
  3. Protect pipes in the wintertime. When the temperatures start dropping, it’s important to take extra steps to care for your outdoor unit. Use foam pipe covers to protect exposed exterior pipes against the freezing temperatures.
