Easy Solutions To Hvac That Are Simple To Follow

TIP! Before contacting a repair service, do a short tour of the entire home. Pay attention to which areas of the house are warm and which ones are cool.

When your HVAC goes bad, you may end up in chaos. Poor systems can cost you more money and frustration when they break. Follow these helpful tips on dealing with your HVAC system.

TIP! Clean the coils of your condenser fan each month. Always turn the unit off before you do anything to it, including leaning.

Don’t hire a contractor until you know a little about what you are facing. Discussing the problem is simplified if you understand what has happened with the unit. If you can’t explain changes you’ve made, the process will be even more difficult. So, you should know this beforehand.

TIP! The coils and blades on the fans should be cleaned once a year. For safety, always turn the power off first.

Your outside condenser fan can be helped to run better by you cleaning the fan blades and coils prior to summer starting up. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit. In addition, be sure to get rid of any leaves or other debris that may have accumulated on the outside condenser.

TIP! When you’re trying to cut your grass, don’t cover a unit outside with the clippings. Direct the grass clippings in a direction away from the HVAC unit.

Make sure that you regularly clean debris that might build up on external condenser units. You can never tell when things will pile up, especially following rain or wind storms. These can wreak havoc on your units. This can lead to overheating.

TIP! Many homeowners forget to oil their condenser at least once per year, but it is required. You will notice these ports have a rubber or metal cap covering them.

Each spring, try cleaning the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan. Make sure to turn off the fan’s power first to be safe. Remove the grill and carefully clean the blades and surrounding areas.

TIP! Try to choose a shady place to locate the outdoor compressor device. When the unit sucks in cooler air, then less work is required to cool it further which in turn boosts the units efficiency.

You want to put the outdoor compressor device in a shaded area. The cooler air that the unit can suck in, the less work it will need to do to further cool the air.

TIP! You need to have a contractor review your unit twice a year. Generally, you want it done in the fall and the spring.

If the current location of your HVAC unit outside isn’t working, try having it moved to an area with more shade. As it brings in cool air to cool, you will save a lot of money.

TIP! When it gets cold outside, turn off the outdoor condensers. Avoid damaging the unit by turning it off when the outdoor temperature drops below 60 degrees.

Keeping your home comfortable relies on having a great HVAC system. Failing to maintain this type of system will lead to discomfort. Use the tips located above to help you maintain your system or choose a new system.
