When we begin to notice the vibrant colors of autumn, it’s time to shift our focus to essential fall HVAC maintenance. Pollen is not only a problem in the spring, but it can also damage your condenser in the fall.

Pollen is not only a cause of allergies; it can also cause problems with your condenser. As trees and plants release pollen into the air, some of it inevitably finds its way into your outdoor HVAC unit. Over time, this pollen buildup can accumulate on the condenser coils and fins, obstructing airflow and reducing the unit’s efficiency. A clogged condenser struggles to cool the refrigerant effectively, leading to higher energy bills and potential system breakdowns.

Here’s where fall HVAC maintenance comes to the rescue. As temperatures start to dip, you might be using your AC less frequently. This makes autumn the perfect time to address any pollen-related issues before they escalate.
