All The Help You Need To Maximize HVAC Success

TIP! Clean your fan and coils when the weather begins to warm. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit.

HVAC units are very popular among home owners. This means that an HVAC unit will help to combat the more extreme temperatures outside the home, so that those living in the home will be comfortable at all times. It is a machine so it does need regular maintenance. Keep reading for some useful HVAC tips.

TIP! If the outside of your home has condenser units, ensure they are constantly cleaned. You don’t know when things are going to pile up, like right after it’s windy or rains, and that can ruin your system.

Know the name and type of your HVAC system before looking for a repair person. Get information on the make and model, plus if you have information on the history of maintenance, that will help, too. In this way, you can be sure your repair person has all vital information.

TIP! Every spring you need to make sure your condenser fan’s coils and blades on the fan part are clean. First, make sure the power is off to ensure nothing moves while you are working.

Clean your fan blades and coils each spring to ensure that your condenser fan operates at it’s best. Except when cleaning the outside, turn the unit off when performing any type of maintenance. Also, it is important to clear the outside condenser unit from any debris that maybe trapped inside.

Clean your outdoor condensers often. Falling leaves and wind or rain may cause debris to reduce the efficiency of your unit. Also, you are risking your system overheating.

TIP! If your condenser comes with oil ports, you should lubricate it yearly. You’ll find these ports are covered with a metal or rubber cap.

Every spring you need to make sure your condenser fan’s coils and blades on the fan part are clean. Don’t forget to disconnect the power first. Then you need to get the grill popped off and get the blades out so you can clean them and your unit gently.

TIP! A shady spot is always a good choice for the placement of your outdoor compressor. If you have a unit taking in air that’s cooler, it won’t have to work so hard to cool air that it sends to your home.

Make sure clippings don’t get on your outdoor units when your mowing your lawn. Aim your grass cuttings in a direction away from your unit. If you’re blowing leaves, this same problem can occur, so make sure you move around the unit and blow the leaves away from it.

TIP! Be sure to place your outdoor unit in a shady spot to maximize efficiency. As you get your air conditioner to suck in cool air it won’t have to do too much work to cool it which saves you some money.

There are many things to help when you want information on HVAC units. Ensure that the unit is installed correctly, and don’t forget to maintain it. Use the information from this article to guide you when choosing a heat pump or having maintenance work completed on your HVAC.
