HVAC Advice From The Experts In The Field

TIP! If you struggle with your HVAC, try touring your home before calling a professional. Make a list of the rooms which are comfortable and which just aren’t.

For a lot of homeowners it’s hard to know who to call when their cooling or heating system starts to fail. To prevent a situation like this from mushrooming into a disaster, it is helpful to read up on the topic in advance. The advice here will help any homeowner know what to do with their system.

TIP! Make certain that you clean your condenser when the weather begins to warm. First, turn the power off so nothing moves when you’re working with it.

Know what type of system you currently have before calling someone to fix it. Know what the manufacturer’s name is, which particular model you have and what’s gone on with the unit in the past. That way you can provide the contractor with all the necessary information.

TIP! Don’t get grass clippings on your outside unit. Get the grass shot away from your unit.

Clean the fan blades and coils in your condenser each spring. Before you get started, cut the power. Then you need to get the grill popped off and get the blades out so you can clean them and your unit gently.

TIP! Leaves falling from trees can wreak havoc with your HVAC unit. The grill on the fan can become cluttered with debris, which will cause a serious operating deficiency.

Avoid showering your outdoor unit with grass clippings when you mow the lawn. Instead, make sure that the grass is shooting in the opposite direction. Also do this when blowing leaves or shoveling snow.

TIP! If you have a fan condenser with oil ports, it needs to be lubricated every year. These are usually covered with rubber or metal caps.

If trees are losing leaves around your home, this can impact your HVAC unit. When the leaves fall from nearby trees, clean the grill of your fan often. The fan needs to have an unobstructed path for air to enter the unit, and if it becomes blocked, you will end up with many headaches with the unit.

TIP! It is very important that your HVAC system is serviced two times a year. This should happen in the fall and the spring.

In order for your new unit to be as efficient as possible, or to make older units more efficient, make sure it’s put in a shaded area. If the air your machine draws in is already cooler, it will require less energy to regulate before it’s filtered into your home.

TIP! Turn off outdoor condenser units when weather turns cold. If the temperature outside is less than 60ºF, be sure to turn off the unit so that you don’t damage it.

During extreme temperatures of the summer and winter, it can be incredibly frustrating to have your unit go out. Having a good understanding of the workings of your HVAC system can help. These tips have armed you with all you need to know.
