If you want your AC units to run efficiently then you should follow some HVAC tips. A lot of people are ignorant about how to care for their HVAC systems, which is why they face problems when the summer season sets in. To prevent this from happening, it is advisable to call for a professional tune-up before the summer season arrives, this way the AC unit would be all prepped up for giving an optimum performance throughout summer.
It is also advisable to have the air filter of the AC unit cleaned thoroughly every month. You can also have it changed every month, if it is feasible for you. It is best to invest in electrostatic filters as these give an impressive performance. If you are taking out the air filters for cleaning then be mindful of the fact that the AC should not run without the filter. Also, ensure that the filter is completely dry before fitting it back into the device.
In case of outdoor condenser units, one of the most useful HVAC tips is to have the debris or leaves removed from the outdoor condenser units for best results. Also, don’t forget to clean the coils, fan grills and fan blades of such outdoor units. For a thorough cleaning, you can use a hose to spray away all the dust and debris stuck to such components. Before hosing the unit, you should cover the motors and other essential components with plastic bags so that they do not get wet. A lot of times, people forget to clean the base pan of outdoor condenser units, which are located at its base. Cleaning this out is most likely to make a huge different in the unit’s performance therefore you might as well carry out this chore.
When checking HVAC systems it also helps to take a look at the fan because sometimes the blades may be striking an object in its way. The blade also becomes bent at times, thus causing it to become unbalanced. As far as possible, you can fix this issue with your bare hands otherwise you can have the blades replaced.
