Preparation Is Key When It Comes To HVAC

TIP! Know the name and type of your HVAC system before looking for a repair person. Look for the model and brand number.

If your home’s HVAC system is not working properly, it can create a lot of stress on you as a homeowner. They can be costly to repair, but living in discomfort is not an option. To keep trouble at bay, continue reading to learn some great preventative maintenance tips.

TIP! In order to keep your outside condenser fan running efficiently, make sure the coils and the fan blades are cleaned before the cooling season begins. Before you clean the unit, be sure to turn off the power.

Prior to putting in a service call on your HVAC, be able to identify it. It is important to understand what model it is and which brand it is. Also, if it has been serviced before, you should have that information handy. In this way, you can be sure your repair person has all vital information.

TIP! If you have condenser units outside your home, be sure to clean out the debris from them often. Excess debris can really affect your system’s quality.

When you call an HVAC system for help, you need to be aware of what you need them to do before calling. It is going to be hard to get a price estimate on the phone if the current system isn’t something they’ve seen. If you can’t explain changes you’ve made, the process will be even more difficult. So, you should know this beforehand.

TIP! You should clean your condenser fan’s blades and coils every spring. Be sure to turn the power off first; you don’t want anything to move.

Help the outside condenser fan run efficiently by cleaning the coils and fan blades before the summer starts. Except when cleaning the outside, turn the unit off when performing any type of maintenance. Take away all of the debris as well.

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. Make sure you shoot the clippings in the other direction from the unit.

Every spring you need to make sure your condenser fan’s coils and blades on the fan part are clean. Turn the power off so nothing moves. Next, remove the grill, take the blades and clean them gently, then clean the actual unit.

TIP! Leaves and debris can damage your system. Be sure to clean your fan grill frequently when trees nearby are shedding.

Keep your outdoor units free of debris when you are mowing the lawn. Instead, make sure that the grass is shooting in the opposite direction. This same tip applies when you are blowing fallen leaves around the yard. Grass and leaves pose a serious problem for the internal functioning of your unit.

Hvac System

TIP! Once it grows cold outside, turn off your outside condenser unit. The unit will become damaged if you do not take care of it.

Comfort comes with a working HVAC system. Without proper maintenance of your HVAC system, your home will not be a comfortable place to be. Avoid this by using the tips listed here.
