Finding the right specialist to repair or replace your home system can be a little tricky for new homeowners with no experience. The tips that follow will help you do that and much more!

TIP! Before you choose an HVAC contractor, have an idea in your mind of what needs to be done. It will be difficult for an HVAC contractor to provide you with an estimate on the phone without knowing what your current setup is.

Before calling someone to repair your system, make sure you know what kind of HVAC system you actually have. Look for the model and brand number. This makes sure your contractor will be sufficiently prepared.

If your HVAC is giving you problems, tour your home before calling a technician. Figure out which rooms are too cool or warm. Taking this step aids a contractor in figuring out what the problem is and how to repair it as quickly as possible.

If the condenser for your HVAC system is located outside, make sure you clear away any debris that might settle in or around it. Leaves, twigs and other troublesome objects can accumulate, particularly after very windy weather, and this will wreak havoc on your system. Overheating can occur, which often spells disaster for your system.

TIP! You should clean your condenser fan’s blades and coils every spring. First, the power should be turned off so things don’t move as you work.

Keep your outdoor units free of debris when your cutting grass. Make certain the debris goes away from it. This also applies to leaf blowing and any other yard work that results in debris.

TIP! Your HVAC unit may suffer when trees start to lose their leaves. When you see nearby trees shedding their leaves, clean the fan grill on your unit constantly.

When the trees are losing their leaves, your HVAC unit can suffer. When you notice your trees shedding, frequently clean your unit’s fan grill. A blocked unit can quickly become a broken unit.
