HVAC Tips And Tricks You Need To Know

TIP! Check out the system that you have before you call a professional. It is important to understand what model it is and which brand it is.

The only way your home can always be a desirable temperature is if you are properly heating and cooling it. Due to this, your HVAC must remain in working order. Expect expensive repairs and discomfort if you let your HVAC system fail. A few tips have been gathered below. These tips should help you perform some of the most simple, yet mandatory maintenance on your HVAC system.

TIP! Clean your fan blades and coils each spring to ensure that your condenser fan operates at it’s best. Always shut off all power to your unit for any work beyond superficial cleaning.

Before calling someone to repair your system, make sure you know what kind of HVAC system you actually have. It is important to understand what model it is and which brand it is. Also, if it has been serviced before, you should have that information handy. This makes sure your contractor will be sufficiently prepared.

TIP! Be sure to clean external condenser units regularly. Leaves and debris can accumulate quickly, particularly following storms, and that can cause problems for your system.

Inspect the temps in your home before you call a service to help you with any HVAC issues you’re having. Make a list of the rooms which are comfortable and which just aren’t. Doing so can help your technician fix your HVAC issue quickly.

TIP! Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. First, turn the power off so nothing moves when you’re working with it.

Keep your outdoor units free of debris when your cutting grass. Make sure you shoot the clippings in the other direction from the unit. This applies when you are taking care of the leaves in the yard.

TIP! Lubricate the oil ports on your condenser once each year. You will see rubber or metal caps covering the ports.

Put outdoor units in the shade if you are installing them. As your air conditioner sucks in cool air, little will have to be done to cool it any further, saving you a ton on your energy bills.

TIP! When you are choosing a location for the outdoor compressor unit, it’s preferable to use a shaded area. Your unit won’t have to work as hard to cool the inside air if the outside air it sucks from is cooler.

Turn off any outdoor condensers you have when the weather gets cold. Avoid damaging the unit by turning it off when the outdoor temperature drops below 60 degrees. This will help keep it in good condition for many years.

TIP! Make sure you have your HVAC system checked at least twice a year. It’s best to have it checked before you turn it on for the summer and again for the winter.

Now you know how to keep your HVAC system in great shape. Follow regular maintenance procedures in order to avoid malfunctions. Apply the above advice to keep it in good shape, avoiding unpleasant surprises.
