Confused About Getting The Right HVAC Help? This Article Will Help!

TIP! Your outside condenser fan can be helped to run better by you cleaning the fan blades and coils prior to summer starting up. Always make sure you shut off the power before you do any work on the unit other than superficial cleaning.

A HVAC system is great, but only if it works efficiently. In addition to the discomfort of living in a home where the heating and/or air conditioning don’t work, you’ll likely be worried about the expense of fixing your HVAC system. Therefore, it is important to know how to maintain your system, and what to do if you need to replace or repair it.

TIP! If there are condenser units as part of your HVAC system, clean them often as they tend to have lots of debris. Leaves and debris can accumulate quickly, particularly following storms, and that can cause problems for your system.

Check out the system that you have before you call a professional. Know the model and brand and find it’s maintenance history, if possible. This will help you give the new contractor the necessary information.

TIP! Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. Before you do anything, however, turn the power off.

Know what you need before you hire a contractor. This will make the quote process much easier. It’s even harder if you’re not able to explain what you’ve done. So, have this information ready.

TIP! When you’re trying to cut your grass, don’t cover a unit outside with the clippings. Instead, make sure that the grass is shooting in the opposite direction.

Make sure that you regularly clean debris that might build up on external condenser units. Debris quickly gathers here, even more so if there is a storm. This can cause major issues with your system. It could get too hot, leading to even more problems.

TIP! Your HVAC unit may suffer when trees start to lose their leaves. Clean the fan grill often when leaves are falling.

Check to determine if the fan condenser on your HVAC system is equipped with oil ports, and if it is, be sure to lubricate every year. A rubber or metal cap is typically placed over such ports. Put about ten drops or less of a good non-detergent SAE 20 oil into each port.

TIP! A shady spot is always a good choice for the placement of your outdoor compressor. The cooler the air that the unit is able to access, the less work it has to perform.

If you want things to be more efficient, get new units outside or have your current one moved into the shade. When your unit sucks in cooler air, then much less is required to cool it further, which saves you money on energy bills.

TIP! Turn off outdoor condenser units when weather turns cold. When the temperature drops beneath 60 degrees, it’s time to cut off the unit to prevent damage.

Your home’s HVAC system is critical to providing a comfortable environment in your home. If it isn’t, you will often be too hot or too cold in your living space. Never let this happen to you; keep in mind all the advice here to make sure that your HVAC system is providing you good air.
