Techniques To Help You Find HVAC Success

TIP! If you have units that are condensers outside of the home, keep them free of debris. Leaves, twigs and other troublesome objects can accumulate, particularly after very windy weather, and this will wreak havoc on your system.

One important thing about a home is how well it gets cooled or heated. That is why it is important to keep your HVAC system healthy. If you don’t properly care for your unit, it can lead to expensive repairs and an uncomfortable way of living. Here are some tips to get you started.

TIP! Each spring, clean the fan blades and coils on your condenser. Before you do so, shut off the power to ensure that none of the parts will move while you work on it.

If you have units that are condensers outside of the home, keep them free of debris. Things tend to pile up around these units, especially after storms come through, which could cause problems to your system. It will damage the system by overheating.

TIP! A big mistake that people make is cutting the grass next to the outdoor condenser unit and allowing all of the clippings to blow inside the fan and coil. Direct the grass clippings in a direction away from the HVAC unit.

When you’re trying to cut your grass, don’t cover a unit outside with the clippings. Try shooting the clippings away from it. The same thing should go on when you blow leaves, so take your time when you’re working around HVAC units that are around when you’re blowing debris around.

TIP! If your condenser comes with oil ports, you should lubricate it yearly. Most of these ports have some sort of protective cap covering them.

Leaves and debris can damage your system. Make sure you clean out your fan grill often once nearby trees start shedding their leaves. When blockages restrict the flow of air to the fan, you could end up with serious issues on your hands.

TIP! A shady spot is always a good choice for the placement of your outdoor compressor. The unit will operate more efficiently to cool your home if the intake air is cooler to begin with.

It is very important that your HVAC system is serviced two times a year. Checks in the spring as well as in autumn are the best. You should have it looked at even if no problems are occurring; there could still be a problem or potential problem.

TIP! Be sure to place your outdoor unit in a shady spot to maximize efficiency. This will ensure cool air is sucked in, meaning less cooling must be done by the unit.

Condenser units for the outdoors should be shut off when it starts to get cold outside. When the temperature goes below 60 degrees, shut off the unit in order to prevent damage. This will allow your system to work well every year, and that saves you quite a bit on making repairs.

TIP! You need to have a contractor review your unit twice a year. The best time of year to have the system checked is right before the weather begins to change.

You should now have a better idea of how to keep that HVAC unit running smoothly. Never allow it to falter just because you have of of paid attention to maintenance. Use the tips in this article to keep it operating efficiently, and you can avoid coming home to a home that is too cold or too hot.
