HVAC Success Is Within Your Grasp Now

TIP! Clean the debris from outside units often. You never know when things can pile up, especially after a windy or rainy storm, and that can throw a wrench in your system.

Having a properly running HVAC system is excellent; a bad one is a real pain. It costs a lot to repair this system and living with it in the meantime isn’t fun. To keep trouble at bay, continue reading to learn some great preventative maintenance tips.

TIP! When you’re trying to cut your grass, don’t cover a unit outside with the clippings. Direct the clippings away from the equipment.

Before you contact people to assist you in getting your system fixed, know what kind of system you’re working with in the first place. Learn the brand, model, and if you have it, the maintenance history. This will help make sure that the contractor you hire has all the necessary information.

TIP! If your condenser comes with oil ports, you should lubricate it yearly. You’ll see that the ports here are closed with a rubber or metal cap.

If you struggle with your HVAC, try touring your home before calling a professional. Determine which rooms are hotter or colder than they should be. Doing so can help your technician fix your HVAC issue quickly.

TIP! You want to put the outdoor compressor device in a shaded area. When your unit is bringing in cool air, it will not have to work as hard to cool the air as it moves it inside, boosting efficiency.

What do you need done? Know this before calling a contractor. It will be hard for a contractor to give you a price estimate over the phone if they have not seen your current system. It will be even harder if you cannot explain what you have done. Thus, it is worthwhile to have this knowledge ahead of time.

TIP! Have the HVAC system checked twice a year at the least. This should happen in the fall and the spring.

If you have condenser units outside your home, be sure to clean out the debris from them often. You don’t know the amount of stuff that can pile up right after heavy winds or a storm. It can cause your system to malfunction by overheating.

TIP! Keep energy costs from rising by having your system serviced annually. The service will include motor inspection, oiling of moving parts, and a freon level check.

When you cut the grass, make sure your mower isn’t tossing clippings toward your outdoor units. Aim your grass cuttings in a direction away from your unit. The same goes for blowing leaves, so always be careful if you are moving debris near your HVAC devices.

Hvac System

TIP! Ask friends and family for contractor recommendations. People who have been happy with work they have had done in the past are normally more than happy to recommend their contractors.

A home’s HVAC system is the key to ambient comfort. If you don’t properly maintain it, then your home is not a good place to be. Take these tips to heart and never forget about your HVAC system.
