HVAC Doesn’t Have To Be Hard, Here’s Help

TIP! When you call an HVAC system for help, you need to be aware of what you need them to do before calling. A contractor will be hard pressed to provide you with an over-the-phone estimate if unfamiliar with your system.

Who would want to come home to find a malfunctioning HVAC system waiting for them? Your HVAC unit is beyond important, and it is up to you to keep it operating when it counts. The following tips are great for helping you do just that.

Fan Blades

TIP! Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. Before you do anything, however, turn the power off.

By the end of spring, the fan blades and coils of your condenser should be thoroughly cleaned, so operation can proceed with greater efficiency. Before you do clean the coils and fan blades, always take the precaution of turning off all power to the unit. Clean the outside of your condenser unit regularly.

TIP! The operation of your HVAC system can be in danger when the tree leaves begin to fall. Clean outdoor units often to remove leaves.

Clean the debris off your outdoor condenser unit. Debris can pile up after a storm, bringing potential damage with it. If you do not, the unit may get too hot and cause additional problems.

TIP! If you want to know where you should put an outdoor compressor, you should place it somewhere where there is a lot of shade. When your unit takes in cool air, it takes less energy to tool the air, thus boosting efficiency.

Each spring it’s time to clean the inside of your condenser unit, including the fan and the sensitive coil. Turn it off first so you don’t get hurt or break something. Then you need to get the grill popped off and get the blades out so you can clean them and your unit gently.

Grass Clippings

TIP! To help keep your energy costs down, have your heating and cooling system serviced at least once a year. During your service visit, the serviceman will inspect the unit’s motor, oil the unit’s moving parts and ensure the unit has proper freon levels.

Avoid showering your outdoor unit with grass clippings when you mow the lawn. Direct the grass clippings in a direction away from the HVAC unit. The same goes for when you blow leaves, so make sure your are careful when moving any debris in the vicinity of your HVAC devices.

TIP! Never allow the temperature in your home to rise to a dangerously high level. Even the best air conditioners can only realistically cool your home approximately 20 degrees Farenheit.

Check your unit at least twice each year. It’s best to have it checked before you turn it on for the summer and again for the winter. A quick check is worth it to avoid problems down the road.

TIP! Use an online sizing calculator to help you calculate the proper size of the air conditioning unit you should purchase. While you might think that a larger HVAC system is always better, in fact, larger systems sometimes are not the best choice for a particular space.

Use the techniques presented in the article you have just read. It isn’t a good thing to come home to a HVAC system that isn’t working properly. Contemplating hefty repairs is also something to dread. This can all be prevented now that you have solid information from this article. Maintain your system and enjoy the benefits.
