Currently, there is a small bush around the unit, but it is not protecting it from the direct sunlight
Last year, the Summer was severely hot, plus I have noticed the same this year as well. The temperatures outside are feeling like they are in the 3-digit range. Thankfully, both of us have been getting some rain, so that does help to cool us down. I live in the Southern area of the country, plus this is also our rainy season. Those random rain showers are our only saving grace from the blistering heat. My air conditioning system broke last Summer plus I am afraid that it will break again this year, plus not even a service will be able to prevent it from happening again. The capacitor warm last year because of the hot temperatures outside. And once it warm, it was unable to charge the system. The capacitor stores electricity plus it gives the air conditioning system the jolt it needs to get the motor runningâ€¦ Last year, when our Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C company replaced the capacitor, she mentioned it broke because it warm. My air conditioning system is in direct sun, plus it is being exposed to that extreme heat every single day. So, I am expecting the capacitor to go out again. I have thought about getting a cover for our Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C unit, but not several companys propose covering the air conditioner system. Perhaps, I could install a screen to provide additional shade. Currently, there is a small bush around the unit, but it is not protecting it from the direct sunlight. And to be honest, the leaves of that bush are also getting burned by the heat from the sun. I need to figure this out before it is too late.
