HVAC Tips And Tricks You Need To Know

TIP! Before contacting a repair service, do a short tour of the entire home. Figure out which rooms are too cool or warm.

It can be difficult for many homeowners to know where to turn when their heating or cooling system begins to fail. To stop disaster from ensuing, knowledge is power. This article was written to help homeowners get the proper help they need for their HVAC unit.

TIP! Clean your fan blades and coils each spring to ensure that your condenser fan operates at it’s best. Except when cleaning the outside, turn the unit off when performing any type of maintenance.

If you have some problems with the HVAC system, check out your home before calling a contractor. Find out which rooms are hot and which are cold. This will help the repairman determine what the problem is.

Fan Blades

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 your condenser’s fan blades and coils come spring. Before you do clean the coils and fan blades, always take the precaution of turning off all power to the unit. Remove leaves and debris from the outdoor unit.

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

Each spring it’s time to clean the inside of your condenser unit, including the fan and the sensitive coil. Turn the power off so nothing moves. Then, pop off its grills, pull the blades out, and begin cleaning the unit and them gently.

TIP! If the fan condenser on your unit has ports for oil, make sure you lubricate it once a year. You can easily find the ports as they have a rubber or metal cap.

Be careful when doing yard work that you do not get debris on or in your unit. Aim the grass clippings in the other direction. Do the same when blowing snow or leaves.

TIP! Make sure you have your HVAC system checked at least twice a year. The spring and autumn times are the best time to have it checked.

If the current location of your HVAC unit outside isn’t working, try having it moved to an area with more shade. When the air conditioner pulls in cooler air, it won’t have to do much more to cool it and that will save you a lot of money on energy bills.

TIP! When it gets cold outside, turn off the outdoor condensers. Avoid damaging the unit by turning it off when the outdoor temperature drops below 60 degrees.

If you are a homeowner, or if you can get permission from your landlord, install double-paned windows in place of any single panes in your home. Windows that are double pane keep the cool air in and can greatly reduce the amount of time your air conditioner will need to run. It keeps heat in during the winter, too.

TIP! To keep your system running smoothly have your system serviced once a year. During service the technician will check the motor and refill the system fluids.

Nobody ever wants their heating and/or cooling systems to go out when it is really hot or really cold. However, had you known what you know now, you could have likely avoided the problem all together. These tips will put you in the best possible position.
