HVAC Do’s And Don’ts For The Average Person

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. Always shut off all power to your unit for any work beyond superficial cleaning.

HVAC tips can seem really complicated to people who don’t have a basic understanding of how the system works. This is due to the fact that so much goes into these things. Nonetheless, there is ample information available to help you understand the ins and out of this subject.

TIP! Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. First, make sure the power is off to ensure nothing moves while you are working.

Clean any debris that accumulates on an external condenser unit. You don’t know the amount of stuff that can pile up right after heavy winds or a storm. It can get overheated, which will cause problems with the whole system.

TIP! Don’t let your outdoor HVAC units get smothered with clippings anytime you mow the yard. Make sure the grass does not get in your unit.

Make certain that you clean your condenser when the weather begins to warm. Before you do anything, however, turn the power off. Next, remove the grill, take the blades and clean them gently, then clean the actual unit.

TIP! As you notice the tress begin to lose their leaves, keep an eye on your outdoor condenser unit. Make sure the fan’s grill is cleaned often during the fall.

Consumers are usually advised to have their HVAC systems inspected twice a year. Generally, you want it done in the fall and the spring. Even if you do not detect a problem, you can identify and fix any potential problems when you have it checked.

TIP! If the fan condenser on your unit has ports for oil, make sure you lubricate it once a year. You’ll see that the ports here are closed with a rubber or metal cap.

When it gets cold outside, turn off the outdoor condensers. If it’s less than 60 degrees outside, turn the unit off. This will allow your system to work well every year, and that saves you quite a bit on making repairs.

TIP! When you are choosing a location for the outdoor compressor unit, it’s preferable to use a shaded area. If it sucks in cool air, it will need to work less to coll the air inside, which can make it last longer.

Make sure to have your unit serviced once a year. The service will include motor inspection, oiling of moving parts, and a freon level check. Doing this simple task can ensure that your system will be running for years with no problem!

TIP! Shut off the air conditioning if nobody is home. The house will only heat to certain level and a decent HVAC system can quickly cool this down once you are home.

Now you know all about the HVAC system. It’s really hard to get started with it unless you get motivated, so be sure that you take these things into account before you get started. You will be glad you did when everything begins to make sense to you!
