TIP! Before calling someone to repair your system, make sure you know what kind of HVAC system you actually have. Take a look at the system or the owner’s manual to find the name and model number.

It’s good to have a properly working HVAC system in your home. The heat in the winter and cool air in the summer are very refreshing to come home to. However, it can quickly turn into a nightmare if your HVAC system fails on you. Learning how to maintain your unit minimizes the chances of a breakdown; these tips will prove very useful.

TIP! Your outside condenser fan can be helped to run better by you cleaning the fan blades and coils prior to summer starting up. Turn off your power before doing any job like this.

If your HVAC doesn’t seem to be working properly, check things out yourself prior to calling in a technician. Notice the temperature in each room. Are some cooler or hotter than others? That way, the contractor will have an easier time diagnosing the problem and repairing it fast.

TIP! The operation of your HVAC system can be in danger when the tree leaves begin to fall. When you notice your trees shedding, frequently clean your unit’s fan grill.

Think about what improvements you want made before picking an HVAC contractor. Discussing the problem is simplified if you understand what has happened with the unit. If you don’t have any idea, they will have trouble giving you any sort of quote. Understand this information beforehand.

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. Such ports tend to have coverings made of rubber or metal.

Clean your fan blades and coils each spring to ensure that your condenser fan operates at it’s best. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit. Clean off any leaves or debris from your external condenser unit.

TIP! If you are choosing where to place your outdoor compressor device, try to put it in a place where there is plenty of 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.

Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. Don’t forget to disconnect the power first. Pull out each of the blades and clean them one by one.

TIP! To increase the efficiency of your HVAC unit, be sure to keep it in the shade. It will reduce the temperature of the air going into the unit, meaning that it will not have to work as hard to cool it.

During the fall, leaves can gather around your HVAC. When you see nearby trees shedding their leaves, clean the fan grill on your unit constantly. If your fan is obstructed, it can keep your system from working properly.

TIP! Have your HVAC serviced at least yearly. Ideally, you should have it looked at in the spring and fall so you know everything is set for the hot and cold months.

Now you understand why it’s important to keep the HVAC system working properly. Bad things will happen when you don’t do regular maintenance inspections. Use these ideas to keep your HVAC running well.
