HVAC Success In A Few Simple Tips

TIP! Before an HVAC expert comes to your home to do any repair work, walk around the home and check out the temps in every room. Make a list of the temperatures in each room and whether they are hot or cold.

Many people want to learn more about their HVAC unit, but they aren’t sure where to begin because they think it is simply too complicated. That isn’t true, though. Use the information and advice offered in the tips below so that you can take your HVAC maintenance into your own hands.

TIP! If you have units that are condensers outside of the home, keep them free of debris. You don’t know the amount of stuff that can pile up right after heavy winds or a storm.

Before calling for help, know the system you have. You need to know who manufactured the product and the item number. Also, get the maintenance records from your files if you have them. Your contractor will appreciate this information.

TIP! When spring rolls around, give the condenser fan blades and coils a good clean. Shut the power off before you do anything.

Be sure to regularly clean debris from external condenser units. Falling leaves and wind or rain may cause debris to reduce the efficiency of your unit. Left unchecked, your unit is more likely to break down.

TIP! Your HVAC unit may suffer when trees start to lose their leaves. During this time of year, check and clear off the fan grill on your unit on a regular basis.

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. Direct the grass clippings in a direction away from the HVAC unit. When blowing leaves, do the same. Always take care when passing your HVAC units while moving leaves, grass or other debris.

TIP! A shady spot is always a good choice for the placement of your outdoor compressor. The cooler air that the unit can suck in, the less work it will need to do to further cool the air.

It is very important that your HVAC system is serviced two times a year. The best time of year to have the system checked is right before the weather begins to change. Even if you can’t see anything wrong, checking it may help you locate and repair some possible issues.

TIP! It is always a good idea to swap out single pane windows for double pane ones. Having a double pane window helps limit your need for air conditioning during the summer months.

Make sure to have your unit serviced once a year. During a maintenance visit, professionals can help by inspecting the system’s motor, oil the different moving parts as well as check the system’s freon levels. These simple things will keep your system running at peak performance.

TIP! Do not allow your home to reach excessive levels of heat during the summer. A simple AC unit will usually only cool the home around 20 degrees within a short period of time.

Working on HVAC won’t be too difficult if you can implement the advice that you were given in the above article. Tips like the ones above can help you increase your knowledge base. Just get started on the right path and everything will work out great!
