Your HVAC Should Be Working For You, Here’s How

TIP! Before you contact people to assist you in getting your system fixed, know what kind of system you’re working with in the first place. Look for the model and brand number.

There isn’t a lot that’s more frustrating than working on HVAC problems when it’s really hot or cold outside. Finding the correct company will help you in the long run. Read on for such knowledge.

TIP! By the end of spring, the fan blades and coils of your condenser should be thoroughly cleaned, so operation can proceed with greater efficiency. The power to the unit should be removed before you begin any maintenance, even cleaning.

Your outside condenser fan can be helped to run better by you cleaning the fan blades and coils prior to summer starting up. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit. Take away all of the debris as well.

TIP! Outdoor condenser units need to be cleaned regularly. You can never tell when things will pile up, especially following rain or wind storms.

If you have condenser units outside your home, be sure to clean out the debris from them often. You don’t know when things are going to pile up, like right after it’s windy or rains, and that can ruin your system. It can also cause it to overheat.

TIP! Be careful when doing yard work that you do not get debris on or in your unit. Direct the grass clippings in a direction away from the HVAC unit.

Every spring you should clean the coils and fan blades on your condenser fan. Don’t forget to disconnect the power first. Next, remove the grill, take the blades and clean them gently, then clean the actual unit.

TIP! When it gets cold outside, the outdoor condenser unit should be turned off. If it’s lower than 60 degrees, the time has come to turn it off.

Avoid showering your outdoor unit with grass clippings when you mow the lawn. Shoot the grass away from the unit. Make sure you move around the unit and blow the leaves away from it while blowing your leaves.

TIP! If you want your energy costs to go down, have the heating an cooling system you own serviced every year at least. The contractor should oil the parts that move and check the motor and freon levels.

If trees are losing leaves around your home, this can impact your HVAC unit. During this time of year, check and clear off the fan grill on your unit on a regular basis. Your fan needs an unobstructed way to get air inside, and the more blocked up it becomes, the more headaches will develop for you with the system.

TIP! Sometimes air conditioners get iced up. Sometimes the drain line will freeze, causing leaks.

Without the correct information, hiring a HVAC professional might be intimidating. With proper knowledge, the process can be made simpler. Now, you should feel much more empowered about dealing with issues when they arise.
