Avoid These Common HVAC Mistakes

HVAC Mistake: Using Cleaners on the Coils

Keeping the HVAC system clean is the most basic and effective way to preserve optimal performance. Cleaners that introduce acidic or alkaline substances, however, are another common HVAC mistake. Barry says you can clean the coils adequately with a stream of low-pressure water. He recommends turning off the power to the unit first, then putting your thumb over the mouth of a garden hose and gently washing down the coils and cooling fins.

If you live near cottonwood trees, aim the spray through the fins from the inside out to wash away the accumulated fibers. You may need to lift the top to accomplish this. Again, be sure to turn off the power to the unit before attempting to open the top.
