Techniques To Help You Find HVAC Success

TIP! Clean your condenser’s fan blades and coils come spring. Turn off the power if you are going to work on your HVAC system.

It is essential that your HVAC system is properly maintained. If an HVAC is not running well, it will cost plenty of money. To fully understand what you can do to have a smooth operating HVAC system, check out the useful tips in this article.

TIP! Clean the debris off your outdoor condenser unit. After a wind or rain storm things may pile up, causing problems with your system.

Before calling someone to repair your system, make sure you know what kind of HVAC system you actually have. Write down what brand your system is along with the model number and, if they’re available, maintenance records. This will facilitate the process when your contractor asks for this information.

Outside Condenser

TIP! When you’re trying to cut your grass, don’t cover a unit outside with the clippings. Aim the grass clippings in the other direction.

Your outside condenser fan can be helped to run better by you cleaning the fan blades and coils prior to summer starting up. Turn off your power before doing any job like this. The outside condenser unit should be kept free of leaves and other debris.

TIP! Leaves and debris can damage your system. During this time of year, check and clear off the fan grill on your unit on a regular basis.

Clean the debris on your condenser units. Wind can pile up all sorts of debris against its grill. It can get overheated, which will cause problems with the whole system.

TIP! If you need to decide the best place to put your outdoor compressor unit, consider putting it in a location that is in the shade. When your unit takes in cool air, it takes less energy to tool the air, thus boosting efficiency.

When spring rolls around, give the condenser fan blades and coils a good clean. Shut the power off before you do anything. Then take off the grill, take the blades out, and gently clean them.

TIP! In order for your new unit to be as efficient as possible, or to make older units more efficient, make sure it’s put in a shaded area. It will reduce the temperature of the air going into the unit, meaning that it will not have to work as hard to cool it.

When the trees are losing their leaves, your HVAC unit can suffer. Cleaning your unit is very important for its effectiveness. The fan must be unobstructed to work properly, and if it becomes blocked, it could cause your system to break down.

TIP! Condenser units for the outdoors should be shut off when it starts to get cold outside. When the temperature drops beneath 60 degrees, it’s time to cut off the unit to prevent damage.

Lubricate your fan condenser if it has oil ports. A rubber or metal cap is typically placed over such ports. Pick a type of SAE 20 oil that is non-detergent and lightweight. Place 10 or less drops into every port to avoid overfilling.

TIP! If at all possible, install double-paned windows in your home instead of those with a single pane. Try to insulate your windows to prevent air from being lost.

Now that you have read this, you should be better prepared to keep your system running properly. You don’t want a faulty HVAC since it can cost you lots of extra cash for maintenance and large bills. Bookmark these suggestions and refer back to them as needed.
