If your home’s HVAC system is not working properly, it can create a lot of stress on you as a homeowner. They are costly to fix, but being uncomfortable is even worse. Therefore, it is important to know how to maintain your system, and what to do if you need to replace or repair it.

TIP! Clean your fan and coils when the weather begins to warm. Always make sure you shut off the power before you do any work on the unit other than superficial cleaning.

When you start making calls to get someone to help with your HVAC system, it’s a good idea to know what system you have before that phone call. Learn the brand and the model. In this way, you can be sure your repair person has all vital information.

TIP! Cover your unit when you are mowing the lawn. Have the grass shoot in the opposite direction.

As the trees around your home lose leaves, it can cause your HVAC unit trouble. When you notice your trees shedding, frequently clean your unit’s fan grill. The fan must be unobstructed to work properly, and if it becomes blocked, it could cause your system to break down.

If you need to decide the best place to put your outdoor compressor unit, consider putting it in a location that is in the shade. If it sucks in cool air, it will need to work less to coll the air inside, which can make it last longer.

TIP! If you want your energy costs to go down, have the heating an cooling system you own serviced every year at least. When they visit to service the unit they’re going to inspect the motors, oil the parts that move, and see how much freon is in your system.

To be comfortable at home it is very important that your HVAC system performs properly. If it isn’t, you will often be too hot or too cold in your living space. To ensure this never happens to you, keep the tips you’ve read today in mind.
