Coming home to an HVAC unit that is not working is no fun at all. Taking care of your home’s HVAC system is vital to keeping your environment comfortable. Use the recommendations below as part of your approach to maintaining your HVAC system.

TIP! Clean your fan and coils when the weather begins to warm. Before you clean the surface, be sure to turn off the power.

If your HVAC doesn’t seem to be working properly, check things out yourself prior to calling in a technician. Jot down the rooms that are hot and the ones that are cold. That knowledge can help the technician figure out what is going on.

TIP! Every spring you need to make sure your condenser fan’s coils and blades on the fan part are clean. First, turn off the power so that nothing will move as you are working on it.

If there are condenser units as part of your HVAC system, clean them often as they tend to have lots of debris. You never know when things can pile up, especially after a windy or rainy storm, and that can throw a wrench in your system. It can overheat, leading to disaster within your system.

TIP! Don’t get grass clippings on your outside unit. Make sure you shoot the clippings in the other direction from the unit.

You should clean your condenser fan’s blades and coils every spring. Be sure to turn the power off first; you don’t want anything to move. Then, take off the grill and get the blades out. Clean everything with care.

TIP! As the trees around your home lose leaves, it can cause your HVAC unit trouble. The grill on the fan can become cluttered with debris, which will cause a serious operating deficiency.

When you’re trying to cut your grass, don’t cover a unit outside with the clippings. Aim the grass in a different direction from the unit. This also applies to leaf blowing and any other yard work that results in debris.

TIP! If the condenser fan has oil parts, then you need to lubricate it at least once per year. These are usually covered with rubber or metal caps.

If your condenser comes with oil ports, you should lubricate it yearly. These ports are often covered by a rubber or metal cap. Pick a type of SAE 20 oil that is non-detergent and lightweight. Place 10 or less drops into every port to avoid overfilling.

TIP! Make certain that an outdoor unit is in the shade. When your unit is bringing in cool air, it will not have to work as hard to cool the air as it moves it inside, boosting efficiency.

Use these tips to master your HVAC system. It is a bad feeling to return home to find that the vents have no air coming from them. Then thinking about repair costs makes it even worse. With the great information found in this article, you can prevent this disaster. Remember these tips, and keep your system in tip-top shape.
