Many homeowners are at a loss when the HVAC system collapses. To ward off disaster, spend time getting to know the subject before something goes awry. The tips listed here can assist homeowners in getting the help that they need.

TIP! Clean your condenser’s fan blades and coils come spring. Before you clean the unit, be sure to turn off the power.

Check out the system that you have before you call a professional. Get information on the make and model, plus if you have information on the history of maintenance, that will help, too. This will let you know that you’re able to give the contractor the information that can help them.

TIP! If you have outside condenser units, make sure to regularly clean the debris that builds up. Debris can pile up at rates that increase during rainy or windy weather, and this can foul up the inner workings of your system.

Before choosing a HVAC company find out what the company offers. Discussing the problem is simplified if you understand what has happened with the unit. It can be harder if you don’t know what’s wrong. It’s a good idea to learn this information in advance.

TIP! You should clean your condenser fan’s blades and coils every spring. First, make sure the power is off to ensure nothing moves while you are working.

Clean the condenser coils and fan at the beginning of the year to help the unit run efficiently. Except when cleaning the outside, turn the unit off when performing any type of maintenance. Leaves and debris can build up inside the unit and cause damage.

TIP! Your outdoor HVAC units might suffer when your trees lose leaves. Clean outdoor units often to remove leaves.

If you have condenser units outside your home, be sure to clean out the debris from them often. The dirt could pile up and harm your system. It may even overheat, which can ruin your system.

TIP! If your fan condenser has oil ports, you must lubricate it once per year. These are usually covered with rubber or metal caps.

Make sure that you do not cover your outdoor components with grass clippings when you are trimming the grass. Try shooting the clippings away from it. Also do this when blowing leaves or shoveling snow.

TIP! When you are choosing a location for the outdoor compressor unit, it’s preferable to use a shaded area. The cooler air that the unit can suck in, the less work it will need to do to further cool the air.

Your HVAC system could suffer when trees begin dropping their leaves. Whenever leaves are falling, consistently clean the fan grill. When blockages restrict the flow of air to the fan, you could end up with serious issues on your hands.

TIP! To increase the efficiency of your HVAC unit, be sure to keep it in the shade. It will help you save on your energy bill when you do this.

The home’s heating and cooling system is integral if you want to be comfortable. However, had you known what you know now, you could have likely avoided the problem all together. These tips have armed you with all you need to know.
