Tips And Tricks For Bettering Your HVAC Experience

TIP! Before you contact people to assist you in getting your system fixed, know what kind of system you’re working with in the first place. 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. Naturally, this requires a well functioning HVAC system. If you’re not able to take care of it, things will cost a lot to fix and it will be hard to live with it all. Read on to find out how to care for your HVAC.

TIP! Clean the condenser coils and fan at the beginning of the year to help the unit run efficiently. Always shut off all power to your unit for any work beyond superficial cleaning.

Before you start calling to find someone to fix your unit, make sure you know the type of system that is installed. Know the brand name and model number. It is also helpful to have the maintenance history. The contractor will likely need all of this information.

TIP! If you have outside condenser units, make sure to regularly clean the debris that builds up. Debris can pile up after a storm, bringing potential damage with it.

If you struggle with your HVAC, try touring your home before calling a professional. Make a list of the temperatures in each room and whether they are hot or cold. That knowledge can help the technician figure out what is going on.

TIP! Make certain that you clean your condenser when the weather begins to warm. Before you begin cleaning the unit, make sure that it is unplugged.

Clean your condenser’s fan blades and coil in the spring. Turn it off first so you don’t get hurt or break something. Next, pop the grill off, put the blades out and start to gently clean them along with the unit.

TIP! Make sure clippings don’t get on your outdoor units when your mowing your lawn. Aim the grass in a different direction from the unit.

When you cut the grass, make sure your mower isn’t tossing clippings toward your outdoor units. 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! A good place to place your compressor unit outside is in a shady spot. The cooler the air that the unit is able to access, the less work it has to perform.

Now you’re better educated when it comes to maintaining your home’s HVAC system. Do not allow it to fail on you when you do not pay attention to maintaining it regularly. 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.
