A Basic Guide To All Your HVAC Questions And Needs

TIP! If your HVAC system is acting up, take a tour of the house prior to calling a professional. Figure out which rooms are too cool or warm.

It’s important to efficiently heat and cool your home. To ensure that this continues to happen, it’s important to care for the system properly. Maintenance is key. To learn more about what you need to know to keep your system running, read on.

TIP! It is important to have some knowledge of your present system and needs before calling a contractor. It’s hard for these contractors to give phone estimates without seeing the current system you have.

Tour your home before calling a contractor. You will be looking to see which of your rooms feel hotter or colder than they should be. This will allow a contractor to quickly figure out what the issue is and how it can be fixed fast.

TIP! Your outside condenser fan can be helped to run better by you cleaning the fan blades and coils prior to summer starting up. Turn off the power if you are going to work on your HVAC system.

If you have outside condenser units, make sure to regularly clean the debris that builds up. Leaves and debris can accumulate quickly, particularly following storms, and that can cause problems for your system. It can cause the unit to overheat and break down.

TIP! Regularly remove debris from outside condenser units. Debris can pile up after a storm, bringing potential damage with it.

Make certain that you clean your condenser when the weather begins to warm. Be sure to turn the power off first; you don’t want anything to move. Remove the grill and carefully clean the blades and surrounding areas.

Grass Clippings

TIP! Many homeowners forget to oil their condenser at least once per year, but it is required. A rubber or metal cap is typically placed over such ports.

When you mow your lawn, take care that you don’t get grass clippings all over your outdoor unit. Aim the grass clippings in the other direction. This includes grass clippings and leaves.

TIP! Try to choose a shady place to locate the outdoor compressor device. When your unit is bringing in cool air, it will not have to work as hard to cool the air as it moves it inside, boosting efficiency.

During the fall, leaves can gather around your HVAC. The grill on the fan can become cluttered with debris, which will cause a serious operating deficiency. The fan should have a clear path for air to come in. If it is blocked, your system will suffer.

TIP! Put outdoor condensers in the shade. As your air conditioner sucks in cool air, little will have to be done to cool it any further, saving you a ton on your energy bills.

Now you’re better educated when it comes to maintaining your home’s HVAC system. Don’t let it go bad on you by not paying attention to regular maintenance. Follow the previous advice to keep it in good repair, making it less likely that you do not find your home too cold or too hot upon your return one day.
