No one wants broken HVAC system. A properly working HVAC system keeps your home comfortable, and you must take care of it. The following tips are great for helping you do just that.

TIP! Keep outside condenser fans running smoothly by cleaning fan blades and coils before the summer begins. The power to the unit should be removed before you begin any maintenance, even cleaning.

What system do you have? You need this information to tell your contractor. Find out the brand and model and, if possible, dig out the maintenance history. This will let you know that you’re able to give the contractor the information that can help them.

TIP! If your condenser units are outisde, make sure any debris is cleaned from them regularly. After a wind or rain storm things may pile up, causing problems with your HVAC system.

Before contacting a repair service, do a short tour of the entire home. Find out which rooms are hot and which are cold. The contractor can probably figure out and fix the problem easier.

TIP! Cover your unit when you are mowing the lawn. Make sure the grass does not get in your unit.

It is important to have some knowledge of your present system and needs before calling a contractor. A contractor will not be able to give you an accurate price without accurate information about your system. If you do not know what you want, the process can become tedious, especially over the phone. Make an effort to gather all information you need before making the phone call.

Cleaning the blades and coils will help the system run better. Shut off power before working or cleaning your system. Clean the outdoor condenser as well.

TIP! To save money and be more comfortable in your home, install double-paned windows instead of single pane. Windows that are double pane keep the cool air in and can greatly reduce the amount of time your air conditioner will need to run.

Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. First, the power should be turned off so things don’t move as you work. Pull out each of the blades and clean them one by one.

TIP! Make sure to have your unit serviced once a year. This inspection will ensure that your unit is working efficiently, including a freon level and motor check, and oiling moving parts.

It is very important that your HVAC system is serviced two times a year. The best times to have the system checked is spring and fall, so you are sure everything is running at peak performance before the heating and cooling seasons. Even if you can’t see anything wrong, checking it may help you locate and repair some possible issues.

TIP! If nobody is home, turn off the air conditioner to save money. When you turn it off, the house heats up, but only to a certain threshold.

The tips above will help you manage your HVAC system. A breakdown of your unit can be frustrating. Imagining the cost to repair your system is even scarier. With the information in this article, it will be a smoother process. Maintain your system and enjoy the benefits.
