HVAC Can Be Easy With This Guide

TIP! Always make sure you are up-to-date about your HVAC unit. Write down the make, model, and any maintenance history.

For a lot of homeowners it’s hard to know who to call when their cooling or heating system starts to fail. To stop such a situation from becoming a real disaster, it pays to spend some time getting familiar with the topic. These suggestions will benefit you for years to come.

TIP! If your HVAC system us giving you issues, take a look around the house prior to calling a contractor. Note which rooms are hot and which are cold.

Clean the coils and blades in your condenser at the beginning of summer. The power to the unit should be removed before you begin any maintenance, even cleaning. In addition, be sure to get rid of any leaves or other debris that may have accumulated on the outside condenser.

TIP! Outdoor condenser units need to be cleaned regularly. Things pile up after storms and damage your system.

Clean the fan blades and coils in your condenser each spring. Make sure to turn off the fan’s power first to be safe. Then, take off the grill and get the blades out. Clean everything with care.

TIP! Don’t get grass clippings on your outside unit. Shoot grass the other way.

Don’t let grass clippings pile up against your outdoor condenser. Make sure you shoot the clippings in the other direction from the unit. Do the same when blowing snow or leaves.

TIP! If there are oil ports on your fan condenser, lubricate it annually. They generally have a rubber or metal cap on them.

When the weather starts to cool down, make sure you turn off outdoor condenser units. If the temperature drops to under 60 degrees, you risk damage to the unit if you leave it on. This will ensure your system works well each year, which could save you quite a bit in repair costs.

TIP! Try to choose a shady place to locate the outdoor compressor device. When it draws in air for cooling, it will be more efficient because it will not need to work as hard to cool down the air.

Update the windows in your home to double-paned if you own it. Try to insulate your windows to prevent air from being lost. Likewise, heat is better retained during the winter.

TIP! Have the HVAC system checked twice a year at the least. Check into it twice a year before you head into the hot and cold months.

Have you ever lost your HVAC system during the bitter winter or blistering summer months? If you have, then you know what a terrible nightmare this can be. But if they know what’s going on, they can quickly fix the situation. The suggestions listed will certainly lead you down a path towards positive heating and cooling function throughout the year.
