A Basic Guide To All Your HVAC Questions And Needs

TIP! Before you call someone to help you fix your system, be sure to know what sort of system you have in place. Write down the make, model, and any maintenance history.

Heating and cooling units can be a great thing, but what do you do when they start to fail? Keep the situation from being a huge disaster by getting to know the topic. This piece is meant to provide solid instruction on hiring proper HVAC contractors.

TIP! Don’t hire a contractor until you know a little about what you are facing. A contractor will not be able to give you an accurate price without accurate information about your system.

Know what type of system you currently have before calling someone to fix it. It is important to understand what model it is and which brand it is. Also, if it has been serviced before, you should have that information handy. This will give contractor’s a better idea of what to expect before they show up, which will help things go more smoothly on arrival.

TIP! By the end of spring, the fan blades and coils of your condenser should be thoroughly cleaned, so operation can proceed with greater efficiency. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit.

Clean your outdoor condensers often. Leaves, twigs and other troublesome objects can accumulate, particularly after very windy weather, and this will wreak havoc on your system. Overheating could occur, which will be problematic.

TIP! Clean the condenser on your debris regularly. Falling leaves and wind or rain may cause debris to reduce the efficiency of your unit.

Keep your outdoor units free of debris when you are mowing the lawn. Aim your grass cuttings in a direction away from 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.

TIP! Each spring it’s time to clean the inside of your condenser unit, including the fan and the sensitive coil. First, turn the power off so nothing moves when you’re working with it.

As you notice the tress begin to lose their leaves, keep an eye on your outdoor condenser unit. Make sure you clean out your fan grill often once nearby trees start shedding their leaves. The fan must be unobstructed to work properly, and if it becomes blocked, it could cause your system to break down.

TIP! Be careful when doing yard work that you do not get debris on or in your unit. Make sure you shoot the clippings in the other direction from the unit.

It is common knowledge that having a home’s cooling or heating system fail in the middle of a heat wave or in the chilly grip of winter can cause a real headache for homeowners. However, if they were prepared for something like that happening, it won’t be so bad. Using the solid advice in the article above can be the best decision any homemaker can make.
