How to care for your condenser

Good airflow is important for a condenser as it transfers heat.

However, accumulation of heat and dust may interfere with their normal operation which may curtail the efficiency of your whole Heating, Ventilation & A/C system, and condenser’s main problem is debris build-up on its fins.

The debris consists of sod, leaves, pet hair and twigs which make it difficult for the Heating, Ventilation & A/C’s condenser to emit heat. The accumulation of debris on the condenser reduces your a/c’s efficiency by straining the condenser. You have to inspect your Heating, Ventilation & A/C equipment’s condenser officially for debris build-up. Turn off the whole a/c plan when you discover debris build-up and clean the condensers fins gently using a tough brush. You might also notice ice-ups in your condenser while both of us were in your routine check-ups. These ice-ups indicate airflow problems with your plan that should be fixed. It could be anything from dirty air filters to duct blockage. It can also result from low refrigerant. If this is the case, you need to seek the services of a qualified Heating, Ventilation & A/C professional. When the season changes and you do not need to cool your current home anymore, place a protective covering over your quality Heating, Ventilation & A/C’s outdoor condenser. You can ask your Heating, Ventilation & A/C professional or consult an Heating, Ventilation & A/C professional on the right protective cover for your outdoor condenser. This covering protects your condenser against snow. You should also be careful on the protective cover material you use and how you place it on the condenser. Avoid using plastic covers because it traps in moisture which may cause the condenser to rust. It also provides a good shelter for creatures, visit your nearest Heat and A/C products contractor for recommendation on the protective gear that you need to buy.
