How To Get Your HVAC To Work For You

TIP! Before you start calling to find someone to fix your unit, make sure you know the type of system that is installed. Get the brand, model name, and if you can you should get the maintenance history out.

Having a great HVAC system that works well can make a home run better. It can be a great joy to have warm air during cold winter months and cool air in the heat of summer. If your HVAC system fails, however, it can be a nightmare. This article will give you tips on how to properly maintain your HVAC system.

TIP! By the end of spring, the fan blades and coils of your condenser should be thoroughly cleaned, so operation can proceed with greater efficiency. Turn off the power if you are going to work on your HVAC system.

Before you choose someone to do HVAC work, figure out what they need to do for you. It is going to be hard to get a price estimate on the phone if the current system isn’t something they’ve seen. It can be harder if you don’t know what’s wrong. You need to know this before you begin.

Outside Condenser

TIP! Avoid showering your outdoor unit with grass clippings when you mow the lawn. Direct the clippings away from the equipment.

Keeping the outside condenser clean of debris and leaves will improve the system’s efficiency. Always make sure you shut off the power before you do any work on the unit other than superficial cleaning. Also, it is important to clear the outside condenser unit from any debris that maybe trapped inside.

TIP! Find a place that is shaded for your compressor. This will limit the work that it has to do.

Be sure to regularly clean debris from external condenser units. Debris can pile up after a storm, bringing potential damage with it. It can overheat, leading to disaster within your system.

TIP! Put outdoor units in the shade if you are installing them. This will ensure cool air is sucked in, meaning less cooling must be done by the unit.

The operation of your HVAC system can be in danger when the tree leaves begin to fall. When the leaves fall from nearby trees, clean the grill of your fan often. 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! If at all possible, install double-paned windows in your home instead of those with a single pane. To keep your home cool, investing in double pane windows is a must.

When choosing the area for placing an outdoor compressor device, place it in a shady area. When your unit takes in cool air, it takes less energy to tool the air, thus boosting efficiency.

You should now know more about your HVAC unit. Without routine maintenance, disaster is inevitable. Luckily, this article should have given you tips to keep your HVAC working properly.
