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.

Those with HVAC systems are aware of how important it is to have one that runs properly. An HVAC unit that runs poorly will only end up costing you money on pricey repairs. Use the tips below to help keep your HVAC system in its best working condition.

TIP! Each spring it’s time to clean the inside of your condenser unit, including the fan and the sensitive coil. Before you do so, shut off the power to ensure that none of the parts will move while you work on it.

Before making that repair phone call, make sure you know the specifics about your particular system. Know the brand name and model number. It is also helpful to have the maintenance history. In this way, you can be sure your repair person has all vital information.

TIP! When you’re trying to cut your grass, don’t cover a unit outside with the clippings. Make certain the debris goes away from it.

Each spring, clean the fan blades and coils on your condenser. Don’t forget to disconnect the power first. Next, pop off the grill, pull out the blades and start cleaning them and the unit itself off gently.

TIP! Fall is a hard time on HVAC units. At least twice a week, you need to clean the grill of your fan.

Keep your outdoor units free of debris when you are mowing the lawn. Shoot the grass away from the unit. This is the same if you are using a leaf blower.

TIP! If the fan on your condenser includes oil ports, they must be lubricated annually. Such ports tend to have coverings made of rubber or metal.

If trees are losing leaves around your home, this can impact your HVAC unit. Clean the fan grill often when leaves are falling. Because the fan requires a clear path for air to enter, you may encounter issues with your system if the fan gets blocked up.

TIP! It’s a good idea to put your outdoor compressor in a shady area. Your unit won’t have to work as hard to cool the inside air if the outside air it sucks from is cooler.

Have the HVAC system checked twice a year at the least. Check into it twice a year before you head into the hot and cold months. Although there might not be any noticeable issues, it is important to provide regular upkeep to prevent bad things from happening.

TIP! When the weather cools down, turn your outdoor condenser off. If the outside temp is under 60 degrees, turn the unit off to prevent damage.

Hopefully, you have gained a solid understanding of what needs to be done to keep your system in check. The last thing that anyone wants is an HVAC system that doesn’t work right, because it costs a lot of money to get that fixed. Use these tips to keep your system in working order.
