Here’s Some Required Knowledge For Today’s HVAC Novices

TIP! Clean the fan blades and coils prior to summertime. Always shut off all power to your unit for any work beyond superficial cleaning.

A poor quality HVAC can cause you a lot of issues. They can be costly to repair and can lead to miserable living conditions. Follow these helpful tips on dealing with your HVAC system.

TIP! Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. Before you get started, cut the power.

Make a circuit around your home before calling for help with your HVAC. Note which of your rooms are hot and which are cold. This can help contractors quickly figure out the issue and how to fix it easily and quickly.

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

It is important to have some knowledge of your present system and needs before calling a contractor. A contractor will not be able to give you an accurate price without accurate information about your system. If you are unable to explain the work that needs to be taken care of, the conversation will be even less fruitful. Know this stuff ahead of time.

TIP! If the fan on your condenser includes oil ports, they must be lubricated annually. The port usually has either a rubber or metal cap on top of it.

Clean your fan and coils when the weather begins to warm. Before you clean the surface, be sure to turn off the power. Remove leaves and debris from the condenser outside.

Grass Clippings

TIP! To increase the efficiency of your HVAC unit, be sure to keep it in the shade. The unit will have to do less work cooling this air.

When you mow your lawn, take care that you don’t get grass clippings all over your outdoor unit. Direct the grass clippings in a direction away from the HVAC unit. This also applies when you blow leaves, so be very careful near your exterior HVAC units when you move debris.

TIP! It is very important that your HVAC system is serviced two times a year. Checks in the spring as well as in autumn are the best.

As the trees around your home lose leaves, it can cause your HVAC unit trouble. During this time of year, check and clear off the fan grill on your unit on a regular basis. The air needs to be unobstructed into the fan, and any blockages create performance issues for the whole system.

TIP! Having a programmable thermostat installed is a money saving idea. A thermostat that’s programmable is going to save you around ten percent on the heating and cooling costs you have to pay when you turn it back about fifteen percent for a part of the day.

To be comfortable at home it is very important that your HVAC system performs properly. If you aren’t performing regular maintenance, then the environment at home is not going to be a fun place to live. Take these tips to heart and never forget about your HVAC system.
