The only way your home can always be a desirable temperature is if you are properly heating and cooling it. That means your HVAC has to be in tip top shape. Poor maintenance leads to undesirable living conditions. Here are some great tips to help you keep your HVAC system running smoothly.
If your HVAC doesn’t seem to be working properly, check things out yourself prior to calling in a technician. While you are walking through the house, gauge which rooms are the coolest and which are the warmest. Doing so can help your technician fix your HVAC issue quickly.
Know what work you want done before you select an HVAC 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 will be way more hard if you can’t figure out what they need to do. It’s important to know this beforehand.
Before the summer you should clean out your condenser fan’s blades and coils. Always shut off all power to your unit for any work beyond superficial cleaning. Clean off any leaves or debris from your external condenser unit.
Clean the debris on your condenser units. Debris can pile up at rates that increase during rainy or windy weather, and this can foul up the inner workings of your system. It can cause your system to malfunction by overheating.
Be careful when doing yard work that you do not get debris on or in your unit. Make sure the grass does not get in your 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.
You can now see how important a properly maintained HVAC system is. Don’t allow things to go bad because you don’t pay attention to doing maintenance. These tips will help you keep your unit maintained and should help you if you ever need it replaced as well.
