Many people want to learn more about their HVAC unit, but they aren’t sure where to begin because they think it is simply too complicated. This need not be the case. In this article we will share some good tips and helpful information.
By the end of spring, the fan blades and coils of your condenser should be thoroughly cleaned, so operation can proceed with greater efficiency. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit. The outside condenser unit should be kept free of leaves and other debris.
You should clean your condenser fan’s blades and coils every spring. Before you begin cleaning the unit, make sure that it is unplugged. Next, pop off the grill, pull out the blades and start cleaning them and the unit itself off gently.
Keep your outdoor units free of debris when your cutting grass. Aim the grass in a different direction from the unit. This applies when you are taking care of the leaves in the yard.
During the fall, leaves can gather around your HVAC. 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.
Have your HVAC serviced at least yearly. Checks in the spring as well as in autumn are the best. Whether you know of problems or not, good maintenance will help you to avoid future issues.
It’s not hard to work with an HVAC if you can work with it and use the advice above. It is really hard to learn about this without trying the above tips first, so keep that in mind. Start as soon as you can for the best results.
