HVAC Tips You Can’t Master The Topic Without

TIP! If you are having issues with your HVAC, do a tour of your house before you call in help. Know what part of the house is cold and which is hot.

A properly running HVAC system can mean the difference between comfort and discomfort in the home. Fixing the system costs a lot, that is why it is best to keep it running right. The following article will teach you tips for keeping your HVAC running great.

TIP! Clean your condenser’s fan blades and coils come spring. The power to the unit should be removed before you begin any maintenance, even cleaning.

What system do you have? You need this information to tell your contractor. Get the brand, model name, and if you can you should get the maintenance history out. This information will be helpful to any contractor you hire to repair it.

TIP! 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. When you work with your lawn mower, make sure it spits the grass to the side opposite of your unit.

Understand what you want before talking to a contractor. It is going to be hard to get a price estimate on the phone if the current system isn’t something they’ve seen. In addition, you need to be able to tell the contractor what you have already tried. So, have this information ready.

TIP! Leaves and debris can damage your system. Clean the fan grill often when leaves are falling.

Clean your condenser’s fan blades and coils come spring. Be safe and turn off the power supply before working on your HVAC unit. Remove leaves and debris from the condenser outside.

TIP! Look for shade when placing a compressor outdoors. This will limit the work that it has to do.

Clean any debris that accumulates on an external condenser unit. You don’t know when things are going to pile up, like right after it’s windy or rains, and that can ruin your system. Overheating could occur, which will be problematic.

TIP! Get your HVAC unit serviced two times per year. Generally, you want it done in the fall and the spring.

Each spring, try cleaning the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan. Be sure to turn the power off first; you don’t want anything to move. Next, remove the grill, take the blades and clean them gently, then clean the actual unit.

TIP! During cold weather , be sure to turn off outdoor condenser units. This means that you should turn it off to prevent damage if the weather falls under 60 degrees Farenheit.

As stated above, your HVAC system is very important and you need to keep it running right. Fortunately, these tips can produce real savings. But it is up to you to follow them, so you don’t find yourself in the position to shell out thousands of dollars fixing something that could have been prevented.
