Who would want to come home to find a malfunctioning HVAC system waiting for them? The HVAC system is critical to your quality of life, so maintenance is key. Keep reading for tips that can help you with this.

TIP! Clean your condenser’s fan blades and coils come spring. Prior to working on or cleaning the unit, be sure to turn off the power.

Before choosing a HVAC company find out what the company offers. It will be difficult for an HVAC contractor to provide you with an estimate on the phone without knowing what your current setup is. It can be harder if you don’t know what’s wrong. So be aware of this information ahead of time.

TIP! A big mistake that people make is cutting the grass next to the outdoor condenser unit and allowing all of the clippings to blow inside the fan and coil. Make sure you shoot the clippings in the other direction from the unit.

Before the summer you should clean out your condenser fan’s blades and coils. Shut off power before working or cleaning your system. Keep the exterior of the condenser unit free of debris.

TIP! The HVAC unit in your home can become damaged from falling leaves. Cleaning your unit is very important for its effectiveness.

Each spring, try cleaning the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan. Turn the power off so nothing moves. Then, remove the grill, then remove the blades and begin the cleaning process of the blades and the unit.

TIP! In order to boost efficiency, place new outdoor units or move your current unit to a place which resides in the shade. The air in the shade is cooler and can help save on energy costs.

Try to prevent debris from getting in your HVAC unit. Make sure the unit’s fan grill is cleaned frequently when the leaves begin to fall. The fan needs unobstructed air flow, and if debris is blocking this air flow, then your system could suffer.

TIP! Consumers are usually advised to have their HVAC systems inspected twice a year. This should be done in the fall and again in the spring.

If you have oil ports as part of the fan condenser, annual lubrication is key. They generally have a rubber or metal cap on them. Get an oil that is SAE 20 and put about 10 drops into each port, but don’t overfill it.

TIP! If the house is yours or you’re permitted to, replace the windows that are single pane with windows that are double pane. Double pane windows will help keep your home cooler in the summer.
