Tons Of Tips And Tricks For HVAC Success

TIP! Before you call someone to help you fix your system, be sure to know what sort of system you have in place. Know the model and brand and find it’s maintenance history, if possible.

A reliable HVAC system can make one’s home really enjoyable. Not being affected by the extreme hot or cold temperatures from the outside is really great. If your HVAC system fails, however, it can be a nightmare. The following tips will help you learn how to maintain your unit properly and much more!

TIP! Before the summer you should clean out your condenser fan’s blades and coils. Always shut the power off before doing any work or cleaning on the unit.

Before you start calling to find someone to fix your unit, make sure you know the type of system that is installed. Look for the maintenance history and brand and model. This will help you give the new contractor the necessary information.

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

Know what you need before you hire a contractor. It will be hard for a contractor to give you a price estimate over the phone if they have not seen your current system. It can be harder if you don’t know what’s wrong. So, you should know this beforehand.

Outside Condenser

TIP! Leaves falling from trees can wreak havoc with your HVAC unit. When you see nearby trees shedding their leaves, clean the fan grill on your unit constantly.

Keep outside condenser fans running smoothly by cleaning fan blades and coils before the summer begins. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit. The outside condenser unit should be kept free of leaves and other debris.

TIP! If the fan on your condenser includes oil ports, they must be lubricated annually. You can find these ports covered with rubber or metal caps.

Clean your outdoor condensers often. Debris quickly gathers here, even more so if there is a storm. This can cause major issues with your system. It will damage the system by overheating.

TIP! When selecting a location for an outdoor compressor, opt for a shady area, if possible. The unit will operate more efficiently to cool your home if the intake air is cooler to begin with.

Be sure to clean the fan blades and coils of the condenser fan. First, make sure the power is off to ensure nothing moves while you are working. Next, pop off the grill, pull out the blades and start cleaning them and the unit itself off gently.

Hvac System

TIP! Regularly having your HVAC system serviced can help keep your heating and cooling bills down. The motor should be checked, the parts oiled and the freon levels inspected.

Now that you have read the article, you should see how important it is to keep your HVAC system in good working order. Bad things will happen when you don’t do regular maintenance inspections. The excellent tips provided above will help you to keep your HVAC system in tip top shape.
