If your home has an outdoor condenser unit, it is important that you have easy access to it at all times. This may mean that you don’t plant trees, shrubs or other flowering plants in its generally vicinity. Let’s take a look at some other steps that you may want to take to ensure that your lawn and your air conditioner can peacefully coexist.

Make Sure to Mow Your Grass Regularly

Tall grass can be an excellent place for mice, rats and other critters to hide, and eventually, they may decide to migrate from the grass into the condenser unit itself. Grass is also a preferred snack for a variety of insects and other pests that might also want to call this component home.

Don’t Plant Too Close to the Condenser

The best reason not to plant tall trees or bushes near an AC unit is that it can interfere with your ability to maintain it. By planting too close to a condenser unit, vines or roots could grow into it, and this may cause significant damage to internal parts. If your air conditioner isn’t working for any reason, call the folks at Evans Mechanical in Eureka, CA, for help. One of our trained professionals will be able to diagnose the problem and fix it in a timely manner. In addition to air conditioner repair, we can also maintain or install cooling system components.

Consider Placing a Barrier Around the Unit

You may want to consider placing a fence or some other barrier around your exterior air conditioner unit. This may prevent pets or other animals from getting too close to it. It may also prevent you from planting grass or other greenery where it isn’t necessarily needed.

In addition to maintaining or repairing an AC unit in Eureka, the folks at Evans Mechanical provide heating, cooling, indoor air quality and water heater services. Feel free to call us today to learn more about how we can help.

Five-Star Customer Reviews

Excellent service from start to finish. Joe came out to give us an estimate on what we would need for a new furnace, never pressured us to buy the top of their line just giving us options on what we would need for our home. Then the date set for installation Thomas and Ryan came out on time and did a great job.

Evans Mechanical is an excellent service committed to customer satisfaction and guaranteed quality workmanship. Our water heater burst and they were very responsive. They sent a technician out the same day and it was determined the heater was beyond repair.

All three technicians worked well together. They treated each other kindly and were thoughtful and courteous with me. They did a final and complete cleanup after the installment of my new heater. They were respectful of my home. I’m grateful I used this company.
