HVAC Advice From The Experts In The Field

TIP! If you have outside condenser units, make sure to regularly clean the debris that builds up. Things pile up after storms and damage your system.

An HVAC unit must be properly maintained in order to work properly. Many times people have high costs to fix a faulty system, but they could avoid the expense if they knew proper maintenance procedures. The following article will educate you about proper HVAC system maintenance so you will not experience this cost.

TIP! Each spring, try cleaning the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan. First, the power should be turned off so things don’t move as you work.

Always make sure you are up-to-date about your HVAC unit. It is important to understand what model it is and which brand it is. Also, if it has been serviced before, you should have that information handy. This will help make sure that the contractor you hire has all the necessary information.

TIP! As the leaves are falling off the trees, your HVAC system can really take a hit. Make certain you are cleaning the fan grill often if trees nearby have leaves that are falling.

Before choosing an HVAC contractor, think of what you wish to have done. Providing you with an accurate estimate over the telephone may be difficult to impossible is they can’t see the system you have. If you can’t explain anything to them, this will be even more difficult. So, know this information in advance.

TIP! Make certain that an outdoor unit is in the shade. The unit will operate more efficiently to cool your home if the intake air is cooler to begin with.

Clean the coils of your condenser fan each month. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit. Clean off any leaves or debris from your external condenser unit.

TIP! In order for your new unit to be as efficient as possible, or to make older units more efficient, make sure it’s put in a shaded area. If the air your machine draws in is already cooler, it will require less energy to regulate before it’s filtered into your home.

Be sure to clean external condenser units regularly. Debris quickly gathers here, even more so if there is a storm. This can cause major issues with your system. If you do not, the unit may get too hot and cause additional problems.

TIP! Get your HVAC unit serviced two times per year. Ideally, you should have it looked at in the spring and fall so you know everything is set for the hot and cold months.

Make certain that you clean your condenser when the weather begins to warm. First, turn off the power so that nothing will move as you are working on it. Then remove the grill, remove the blades and clean it from top to bottom gently.

TIP! When it gets cold outside, turn off the outdoor condensers. The unit will become damaged if you do not take care of it.

As mentioned earlier, a good HVAC system is a vital component to any home, so keeping everything up to par is critical. Thankfully, the tips you just read will help save you from costly repairs. Remember that not following them could end up costing you thousands of dollars.
