TIP! Before you start calling to find someone to fix your unit, make sure you know the type of system that is installed. Write down the brand and the model and have all maintenance records on hand.

When the HVAC in your home is working properly, you are kept about as comfortable as can be. Without the cool air during summer or the warm air during winter, life is much less comfortable. However, if the system fails, it can be a nightmare. You must learn proper maintenance for these systems; the article below can help with that.

TIP! Check the whole house before you call for help. Jot down the rooms that are hot and the ones that are cold.

Check out the system that you have before you call a professional. Get information on the make and model, plus if you have information on the history of maintenance, that will help, too. Your contractor will appreciate this information.

Make sure that you regularly clean debris that might build up on external condenser units. The dirt could pile up and harm your system. This can lead to overheating.

TIP! Be sure to regularly clean debris from external condenser units. Debris can pile up at rates that increase during rainy or windy weather, and this can foul up the inner workings of your system.

Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. Make sure to turn off the fan’s power first to be safe. Secondly, pop the grill off, take the blades off and clean them as well as the actual unit.

TIP! Each spring, try cleaning the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan. Before you do so, shut off the power to ensure that none of the parts will move while you work on it.

Keep your outdoor units free of debris when your cutting grass. Turn your lawnmower in the opposite direction. This applies when you are taking care of the leaves in the yard.

TIP! Fall is a hard time on HVAC units. Make sure the fan’s grill is cleaned often during the fall.

If you need to decide the best place to put your outdoor compressor unit, consider putting it in a location that is in the shade. If it sucks in cool air, it will need to work less to coll the air inside, which can make it last longer.

Put outdoor units in the shade if you are installing them. This will help you save on your energy bill.

Hvac System

TIP! Install a thermostat you can program to save money on cooling your home. Programmable thermostats can reduce your power HVAC energy costs by as much as ten percent, just by dialing back your thermostat ten or fifteen percent up to eight daily hours.

You should now have a better idea about why proper HVAC system maintenance is necessary. Bad things can happen, so keep your eye out. The excellent tips provided above will help you to keep your HVAC system in tip top shape.
