No More Struggle – HVAC Success Is Yours!

TIP! Get all of the details regarding a broken system before calling for repair. Know the model and brand and find it’s maintenance history, if possible.

There isn’t a lot that’s more frustrating than working on HVAC problems when it’s really hot or cold outside. Learning about the topic means being able to make decisions down the road. Read on for such knowledge.

TIP! Clean your fan blades and coils each spring to ensure that your condenser fan operates at it’s best. Before you clean the surface, be sure to turn off the power.

Know what type of system you currently have before calling someone to fix it. Know the model and brand and find it’s maintenance history, if possible. If you have to have someone come out to repair the unit, you will be able to help the contractor understand more about what is going on.

TIP! When you cut the grass, make sure your mower isn’t tossing clippings toward your outdoor units. When you work with your lawn mower, make sure it spits the grass to the side opposite of your unit.

It is important to have some knowledge of your present system and needs before calling a contractor. They won’t be able to offer you a quote if they haven’t seen your system. In addition, you need to be able to tell the contractor what you have already tried. This is information that you should have prepared in advance.

TIP! Fall is a hard time on HVAC units. When you see nearby trees shedding their leaves, clean the fan grill on your unit constantly.

Make certain that you clean your condenser when the weather begins to warm. Start by turning off the power to avoid having anything move when you work on it. Take the grill off and pull the blades out to clean them.

When you cut the grass, don’t cover the outdoor units with their clippings. Shoot grass the other way. Do the same when blowing snow or leaves.

TIP! Once it gets cold outside, you should turn off the outdoor condenser unit. To avoid damage, units should be turned off when temperatures are below 60 degrees.

If you want to know where you should put an outdoor compressor, you should place it somewhere where there is a lot of shade. This will limit the work that it has to do.

TIP! Installing double paned windows can save a lot of money over single panes, so upgrade if you are able. Double pane windows can help minimize how much you use your air conditioner in the summer, because they keep cool air inside the home.

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. Even if everything seems okay, it doesn’t hurt to check things out.

TIP! Service your HVAC unit at least one time a year. During the service check, the system motor will be inspected, the moving parts will be oiled and the freon levels will be checked This will help keep your system performing at maximum efficiency.

Knowing that your HVAC system needs to be repaired or replaced can be worrisome. But, it does not need to be terribly difficult. With any luck, you should be prepared for any upcoming issues with your unit.
