Fairfax, VA Air Conditioning Repair Tip: Preventing Damage to Your Outdoor Unit

Whether you have a ductless mini split, or central air system, you need to make sure that all system components are protected from dust and other debris that can impair energy efficiency and functionality. Because it resides outdoors, your compressor/condenser unit is subject to more wear and tear than the indoor components. While it’s weatherized by design, it’s important to prevent any damage whenever possible. For more information about what you can do, or to schedule Fairfax, VA air conditioning repair, call the experts at OASIS Heating, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration, Inc. today!

Your outdoor compressor/condenser needs to stay clean and clear of debris. The compressor and condenser are both located in the outdoor unit, and if there is problems with air flow then they will be unable to dissipate the heat from your home and your air conditioning system will not be able to work effectively.

During the off-season, your outdoor unit may have accumulated various organic debris on its surface. As the vegetation once more becomes prevalent during the springtime, it’s all the more important that you ensure grasses and shrubs do not encroach upon the surface of the outdoor compressor/condenser. Even seemingly minor obstructions can cause significant airflow problems. By keeping your outdoor unit clean and clear, you can prevent damage to the outdoor unit.
