Great Advice That You May Not Know Regarding HVAC Equipment

TIP! 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.

Your HVAC system is a key piece of equipment in your home, and letting it go bad is not an option. You are probably here because you want to learn about what you can do in order to help the HVAC system last a very long time. The following article offers lots of great tips.

TIP! Clean the coils on the condenser fan from time to time. Before you do so, shut off the power to ensure that none of the parts will move while you work on it.

Before calling for help, know the system you have. Write down the make, model, and any maintenance history. This will ensure that you can give your new contractor all the information they need.

TIP! When choosing the area for placing an outdoor compressor device, place it in a shady area. If you have a unit taking in air that’s cooler, it won’t have to work so hard to cool air that it sends to your home.

Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. First, turn the power off so nothing moves when you’re working with it. Then, remove the grill, then remove the blades and begin the cleaning process of the blades and the unit.

TIP! Consumers are usually advised to have their HVAC systems inspected twice a year. The fall and spring are the optimal times for this maintenance.

When you cut the grass, don’t cover the outdoor units with their clippings. Instead, make sure that the grass is shooting in the opposite direction. This includes grass clippings and leaves.

TIP! Keep energy costs from rising by having your system serviced annually. When they visit to service the unit they’re going to inspect the motors, oil the parts that move, and see how much freon is in your system.

If you want things to be more efficient, get new units outside or have your current one moved into the shade. As you get your air conditioner to suck in cool air it won’t have to do too much work to cool it which saves you some money.

TIP! If there isn’t anyone at home, then there’s no need for the AC unit to be running and wasting electricity. When you turn it off, the house heats up, but only to a certain threshold.

Your HVAC unit requires regular maintenance at least two times per each year. The normally recommended time for HVAC system inspections is once before the peak cooling season when it gets hot and you’ll be using your AC, and once before the peak heating season, during the cold months when you’re likely to be using your heat. A quick check is worth it to avoid problems down the road.

TIP! Never allow the temperature in your home to rise to a dangerously high level. A simple AC unit will usually only cool the home around 20 degrees within a short period of time.

Maintaining your system is critical. If you don’t do this and your system breaks, the repair bill can be very costly. Avoid the situation entirely by heeding the advice in this piece.
