Preparation Is Key When It Comes To HVAC

TIP! If problems arise with the HVAC system, check the entire house before contacting someone to come for repairs. Make a list of the temperatures in each room and whether they are hot or cold.

A reliable HVAC system can make one’s home really enjoyable. It’s great to have warmth or cooler air when you need it. However, if your system fails you can find yourself in a nightmare. Learning how to maintain your HVAC system properly is key, and you can learn how to do it in the following article.

TIP! Clean the fan blades and coils in your condenser each spring. Turn the power off so nothing moves.

If your HVAC is giving you problems, tour your home before calling a technician. Note which rooms are hot and which are cold. Figuring this out will the contractor to diagnose the issues and quickly get to work on fixing it.

TIP! Cover your unit when you are mowing the lawn. Shoot the grass away from the unit.

Understand what you want before talking to a contractor. This will make the quote process much easier. If you are unable to explain the work that needs to be taken care of, the conversation will be even less fruitful. It’s a good idea to learn this information in advance.

TIP! A shady spot is always a good choice for the placement of your outdoor compressor. If the unit is taking in cooler air, the efficiency will be boosted since it will not need to work as hard.

If your condenser units are outisde, make sure any debris is cleaned from them regularly. Debris can pile up after a storm, bringing potential damage with it. It can cause the unit to overheat and break down.

TIP! It is very important that your HVAC system is serviced two times a year. Check into it twice a year before you head into the hot and cold months.

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. Next, pop off the grill, pull out the blades and start cleaning them and the unit itself off gently.

TIP! If everyone is out, turn the air conditioner off. Your home will become somewhat warmer during this time.

Keep your outdoor units free of debris when you are mowing the lawn. Shoot the grass away from the unit. This same tip applies when you are blowing fallen leaves around the yard. Grass and leaves pose a serious problem for the internal functioning of your unit.

TIP! Do not let your house get dangerously hot. A simple AC unit will usually only cool the home around 20 degrees within a short period of time.
