Finding the right technician to repair your system can be intimidating. To stop disaster from ensuing, knowledge is power. These suggestions will benefit you for years to come.
By the end of spring, the fan blades and coils of your condenser should be thoroughly cleaned, so operation can proceed with greater efficiency. Before you do clean the coils and fan blades, always take the precaution of turning off all power to the unit. Clean the outdoor condenser as well.
Clean the debris from outside units often. You don’t know when things are going to pile up, like right after it’s windy or rains, and that can ruin your system. It can also cause it to overheat.
Each spring, clean the fan blades and coils on your condenser. First, the power should be turned off so things don’t move as you work. Remove the grill and the blades, and then you can give them all a gentle clean.
Avoid showering your outdoor unit with grass clippings when you mow the lawn. Shoot grass the other way. Also do this when blowing leaves or shoveling snow.
If your condenser comes with oil ports, you should lubricate it yearly. You can find these ports covered with rubber or metal caps. Get an oil that is SAE 20 and put about 10 drops into each port, but don’t overfill it.
It is very important that your HVAC system is serviced two times a year. The fall and spring are the optimal times for this maintenance. Although there might not be any noticeable issues, it is important to provide regular upkeep to prevent bad things from happening.
Nobody ever wants their heating and/or cooling systems to go out when it is really hot or really cold. You must have this knowledge in advance though. These tips will put you in the best possible position.
