All The Help You Need To Maximize HVAC Success

TIP! Before you contact people to assist you in getting your system fixed, know what kind of system you’re working with in the first place. Look for the model and brand number.

Your HVAC unit is vital to your home. There is a lot of basic information that can help you prolong the life of your HVAC. Use the tips below as part of your game plan for keeping your HVAC system in working order for as long as you can.

TIP! Clean the coils on the condenser fan from time to time. Shut the power off before you do anything.

If your HVAC is running into problems, check out each room in your house before calling for assistance. Note which of your rooms are hot and which are cold. This will help your contractor quickly determine where the issue lies and how to get it fixed quickly and easily.

TIP! When you cut the grass, make sure your mower isn’t tossing clippings toward your outdoor units. Shoot the grass away from the unit.

Keep outside condenser fans running smoothly by cleaning fan blades and coils before the summer begins. Always make sure you shut off the power before you do any work on the unit other than superficial cleaning. Clean off any leaves or debris from your external condenser unit.

TIP! If the fan on your condenser includes oil ports, they must be lubricated annually. These ports are typically covered with caps made of metal or rubber.

If trees are losing leaves around your home, this can impact your HVAC unit. Clean the fan grill often when leaves are falling. An obstruction, such as a leaf, prevents the maximum amount of cool air from entering the system.

TIP! Look for shade when placing a compressor outdoors. If it sucks in cool air, it will need to work less to coll the air inside, which can make it last longer.

If the condenser fan has oil parts, then you need to lubricate it at least once per year. A rubber or metal cap is typically placed over such ports. Look for an oil that is lightweight and then put about 10 drops inside the port. You don’t want to put in too much.

Place your HVAC unit in the shade to boost efficiency. It will help you save on your energy bill when you do this.

TIP! If you are a home owner, replace whatever single pane windows you have with more efficient double-paned versions. Double-pane windows keep inside air cooler, allowing you to reduce AC usage in the summertime.

It should now be apparent that you can prevent HVAC disasters with proper maintenance. If your HVAC system fails on you it can cost a tremendous amount of money to fix. Prevent this from occurring by using these tips.
