It’s frustrating when your HVAC system isn’t working properly, especially during those times of years when it’s very hot or cold and you rely on your system to keep you comfortable in your home. Learning about HVAC systems in advance will help you when it needs repair. Read on to do just that.

TIP! Clean the coils and blades in your condenser at the beginning of summer. Before you clean the surface, be sure to turn off the power.

If your HVAC doesn’t seem to be working properly, check things out yourself prior to calling in a technician. Find out which rooms are hot and which are cold. If you do this, it will be a great help to the future contractor, who will now be able to quickly locate the problem issue.

TIP! If your unit is outdoors, clean them regularly. The dirt could pile up and harm your system.

If your unit is outdoors, clean them regularly. You can never tell when things will pile up, especially following rain or wind storms. These can wreak havoc on your units. It may begin to overheat, causing massive damage.

TIP! Be sure to clean the fan blades and coils of the condenser fan. Turn the power off so nothing moves.

Clean your condenser’s fan blades and coil in the spring. Shut the power off before you do anything. Next, pop the grill off, put the blades out and start to gently clean them along with the unit.

TIP! Keep your outdoor units free of debris when you are mowing the lawn. Make sure the grass does not get in your unit.

Your HVAC system could suffer when trees begin dropping their leaves. Clean the fan grill often when leaves are falling. The fan needs to have an unobstructed path for air to enter the unit, and if it becomes blocked, you will end up with many headaches with the unit.

TIP! If the fan condenser on your unit has ports for oil, make sure you lubricate it once a year. The port usually has either a rubber or metal cap on top of it.

If possible, put your HVAC in a shaded area if it is outside. Your air conditioner won’t have to work so hard if the air is sucks in is already cool.

TIP! You want to put the outdoor compressor device in a shaded area. This will limit the work that it has to do.

Have the HVAC system serviced twice per year. This should be done in Fall and Spring to prepare it for the extreme months. A quick check is worth it to avoid problems down the road.

TIP! Update the windows in your home to double-paned if you own it. Having double pane windows allows your air conditioning unit to be run much less during the summer, because the cool air is kept inside the home.

Without the correct information, hiring a HVAC professional might be intimidating. However, if you know the right things, the process becomes easier. With any luck, you should be prepared for any upcoming issues with your unit.
