A Basic Guide To All Your HVAC Questions And Needs

TIP! Always make sure you are up-to-date about your HVAC unit. Learn the brand and the model.

The level of comfort experienced within a home has a great deal to do with the temperature that it maintains. That is why proper maintenance is so important. If you have a poor HVAC, you will be costing yourself a lot of money. Below you’ll get a lot of great advice to help you keep the HVAC system you own working great for a long time.

TIP! If your HVAC doesn’t seem to be working properly, check things out yourself prior to calling in a technician. You will be looking to see which of your rooms feel hotter or colder than they should be.

Before you call someone to help you fix your system, be sure to know what sort of system you have in place. You need to know who manufactured the product and the item number. Also, get the maintenance records from your files if you have them. This will ensure that you can give your new contractor all the information they need.

TIP! The coils and blades on the fans should be cleaned once a year. Before you get started, cut the power.

When you call an HVAC system for help, you need to be aware of what you need them to do before calling. A contractor will not be able to give you an accurate price without accurate information about your system. They need to come look at the unit. This is information that you should have prepared in advance.

Outside Condenser

TIP! As the leaves are falling off the trees, your HVAC system can really take a hit. At least twice a week, you need to clean the grill of your fan.

Your outside condenser fan can be helped to run better by you cleaning the fan blades and coils prior to summer starting up. Except when you do superficial cleaning, you need to always make sure the power is off on the unit. In addition, be sure to get rid of any leaves or other debris that may have accumulated on the outside condenser.

TIP! A shady spot is always a good choice for the placement of your outdoor compressor. When it draws in air for cooling, it will be more efficient because it will not need to work as hard to cool down the air.

Make sure clippings don’t get on your outdoor units when your mowing your lawn. Make sure the grass does not get in your unit. The same goes for when you blow leaves, so make sure your are careful when moving any debris in the vicinity of your HVAC devices.

TIP! Don’t ever let your home temperature get dangerously high. Air conditioners can only really cool your home down 20 degrees or so within a reasonable time period.

Now you should be able to see what must be done to keep your HVAC system in working order. Do not neglect your system. Apply the above advice to keep it in good shape, avoiding unpleasant surprises.
