Covering an AC compressor

Q.    I need your advice about covering whole-house air-conditioning compressors located outside the home. I have been partially covering mine with a plastic tarp across the top, leaving about 12 inches of the sides towards the bottom open so moisture is not trapped. Please advise if this is correct. Thank you.

A.    What you are doing is fine. An exterior compressor should not be completely sealed up for winter as it would trap moisture; it needs some ventilation.
