Expert Tips And Tricks For HVAC Success

TIP! Be aware of the type of system that is installed in your home prior to calling a contractor to fix it. It is important to understand what model it is and which brand it is.

A well-maintained HVAC system is an important part of your home. Serviced units tend to run efficiently and smoothly for longer periods of times, saving homeowners money over the life of their HVAC system. The tips in this article will help you do just that.

TIP! By the end of spring, the fan blades and coils of your condenser should be thoroughly cleaned, so operation can proceed with greater efficiency. Turn off your power before doing any job like this.

Before you start calling to find someone to fix your unit, make sure you know the type of system that is installed. Get information on the make and model, plus if you have information on the history of maintenance, that will help, too. This will enable you to give your chosen contractor any information they might need.

Outside Condenser

TIP! Check to determine if the fan condenser on your HVAC system is equipped with oil ports, and if it is, be sure to lubricate every year. These ports are often covered by a rubber or metal cap.

Help the outside condenser fan run efficiently by cleaning the coils and fan blades before the summer starts. Make sure your power is off before doing more than cleaning, such as working on the unit. In addition, be sure to get rid of any leaves or other debris that may have accumulated on the outside condenser.

TIP! You want to put the outdoor compressor device in a shaded area. In this way, it will be cooling air that is already somewhat cooled.

If the condenser for your HVAC system is located outside, make sure you clear away any debris that might settle in or around it. You never know when things can pile up, especially after a windy or rainy storm, and that can throw a wrench in your system. Overheating can occur, which often spells disaster for your system.

TIP! Boost energy efficiency by putting your condenser unit in the shade. When your unit sucks in cooler air, then much less is required to cool it further, which saves you money on energy bills.

When spring rolls around, give the condenser fan blades and coils a good clean. First, turn off the power so that nothing will move as you are working on it. After you have turned the power off, you simply remove the grill and the blades to perform a gentle cleansing.

TIP! Your HVAC unit requires regular maintenance at least two times per each year. Checks in the spring as well as in autumn are the best.

As mentioned earlier, a good HVAC system is a vital component to any home, so keeping everything up to par is critical. With luck these tips will save you money. Follow these tips to prevent yourself from spending thousands of dollars in repairs.
