HVAC Can Be Easy With This Guide

TIP! Before calling someone to repair your system, make sure you know what kind of HVAC system you actually have. Write down the make, model, and any maintenance history.

It is vital to keep your home heated and cooled at all times. Due to this, your HVAC must remain in working order. Without proper care, you won’t be comfortable in your home and you may spend a fortune. To learn more about what you need to know to keep your system running, read on.

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. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit.

Before calling anyone to repair your system, know what system you have. Find out the brand and model and, if possible, dig out the maintenance history. The contractor will likely need all of this information.

TIP! Clean the debris on your condenser units. You don’t know when things are going to pile up, like right after it’s windy or rains, and that can ruin your system.

By the end of spring, the fan blades and coils of your condenser should be thoroughly cleaned, so operation can proceed with greater efficiency. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit. Remove leaves and debris from the condenser outside.

TIP! Make sure that you do not cover your outdoor components with grass clippings when you are trimming the grass. Have the grass shoot in the opposite direction.

Leaves and debris can damage your system. Clean the fan grill often when leaves are falling. The fan needs to have an unobstructed path for air to enter the unit, and if it becomes blocked, you will end up with many headaches with the unit.

TIP! Look for shade when placing a compressor outdoors. The unit will operate more efficiently to cool your home if the intake air is cooler to begin with.

If you want to know where you should put an outdoor compressor, you should place it somewhere where there is a lot of shade. If your unit is sucking in cooler air, it will have less work to do to cool that air as it sends it inside which boosts efficiency.

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.

In order to boost efficiency, place new outdoor units or move your current unit to a place which resides in the shade. As you get your air conditioner to suck in cool air it won’t have to do too much work to cool it which saves you some money.

TIP! Have your heating and cooling system inspected twice a year. Checks in the spring as well as in autumn are the best.

You now see what you need to do in order to maintain your HVAC system. Pay attention to keeping it maintained to make sure it won’t go bad. These tips will help you keep your unit maintained and should help you if you ever need it replaced as well.
