TIP! If there are condenser units as part of your HVAC system, clean them often as they tend to have lots of debris. You never know when things can pile up, especially after a windy or rainy storm, and that can throw a wrench in your system.

Before you start calling to find someone to fix your unit, make sure you know the type of system that is installed. Write down the brand and the model and have all maintenance records on hand. This will help you give the new contractor the necessary information.

Clean the debris off your outdoor condenser unit. Leaves, twigs and other troublesome objects can accumulate, particularly after very windy weather, and this will wreak havoc on your system. Overheating could occur, which will be problematic.

Make sure your condenser fan is in good working order by wiping down the fan blades and the coils. First, the power should be turned off so things don’t move as you work. Remove the grill and carefully clean the blades and surrounding areas.

The HVAC unit in your home can become damaged from falling leaves. Frequently clean the fan grill when trees are shedding leaves. When blockages restrict the flow of air to the fan, you could end up with serious issues on your hands.

You must keep your HVAC systems oil ports lubricated annually. These ports have a metal covering. Sometimes it is rubber. Put about ten drops or less of a good non-detergent SAE 20 oil into each port.

TIP! Shop around before hiring an HVAC contractor. Check with different references to determine the best one for your situation.
