TIP! Check out the system that you have before you call a professional. Learn the brand and the model.

The way your home is heated and cooled is important. Therefore, you need to have a proper system installed and working well. If you’re not able to take care of it, things will cost a lot to fix and it will be hard to live with it all. Below you’ll get a lot of great advice to help you keep the HVAC system you own working great for a long time.

TIP! If your HVAC doesn’t seem to be working properly, check things out yourself prior to calling in a technician. Jot down the rooms that are hot and the ones that are cold.

Before you start calling to find someone to fix your unit, make sure you know the type of system that is installed. Take a look at the system or the owner’s manual to find the name and model number. This will let you know that you’re able to give the contractor the information that can help them.

TIP! Your outside condenser fan can be helped to run better by you cleaning the fan blades and coils prior to summer starting up. Before you clean the unit, be sure to turn off the power.

Leaves falling from trees can wreak havoc with your HVAC unit. Make sure you clean out your fan grill often once nearby trees start shedding their leaves. When blockages restrict the flow of air to the fan, you could end up with serious issues on your hands.

TIP! When you are cutting the grass, be sure not to cover your outdoor units with clippings. Aim your grass cuttings in a direction away from your unit.

If your fan condenser has oil ports, you must lubricate it once per year. These ports have a metal covering. Sometimes it is rubber. Your oil should be an SAE 20. This particular oil is very lightweight and it only requires about 10 drops per port.

TIP! Fall is a hard time on HVAC units. The grill on the fan can become cluttered with debris, which will cause a serious operating deficiency.

You need to have a contractor review your unit twice a year. This should happen in the fall and the spring. Even if you can’t see anything wrong, checking it may help you locate and repair some possible issues.

TIP! When choosing the area for placing an outdoor compressor device, place it in a shady area. The cooler the air that the unit is able to access, the less work it has to perform.

Now you should be able to see what must be done to keep your HVAC system in working order. Maintain your unit on a monthly basis. Follow these tips to keep your HVAC system functioning properly and avoid unexpected breakdowns.
