All The Help You Need To Maximize HVAC Success

TIP! Before calling anyone to repair your system, know what system you have. Write down the brand and the model and have all maintenance records on hand.

HVAC systems are often ignored until they break. When that happens, it will suddenly be extremely important. Finding the right specialist to repair or replace your home system can be a little tricky for new homeowners with no experience. This article can substitute for experience and help you choose the right company.

TIP! Before selecting a HVAC repairman, know what you need done. It is going to be hard to get a price estimate on the phone if the current system isn’t something they’ve seen.

If you have outside condenser units, make sure to regularly clean the debris that builds up. Wind can pile up all sorts of debris against its grill. It can also cause it to overheat.

TIP! Clean the coils and blades in your condenser at the beginning of summer. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit.

Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. Before you do anything, however, turn the power off. Then remove the grill, remove the blades and clean it from top to bottom gently.

TIP! Make certain that you clean your condenser when the weather begins to warm. Before you get started, cut the power.

When you’re trying to cut your grass, don’t cover a unit outside with the clippings. Make sure the grass does not get in your unit. This also applies when you blow leaves, so be very careful near your exterior HVAC units when you move debris.

TIP! You must keep your HVAC systems oil ports lubricated annually. These ports are typically covered with caps made of metal or rubber.

If you have a fan condenser with oil ports, it needs to be lubricated every year. These ports are often covered by a rubber or metal cap. Use a lightweight, detergent-free SAE 20 oil, putting 10 drops in each port.

TIP! If you want to know where you should put an outdoor compressor, you should place it somewhere where there is a lot of shade. If the unit is taking in cooler air, the efficiency will be boosted since it will not need to work as hard.

When the weather cools down, turn your outdoor condenser off. If the temperature drops to under 60 degrees, you risk damage to the unit if you leave it on. You’ll pay less for repairs which you follow this tip.

TIP! Condenser units for the outdoors should be shut off when it starts to get cold outside. When the temperature goes below 60 degrees, shut off the unit in order to prevent damage.

If everyone is out, turn the air conditioner off. When you turn it off, the house heats up, but only to a certain threshold. If the A/C is on when you’re gone, it’ll be working hard constantly.

TIP! Turn off your air conditioner when no one is home to help save money. You may want to turn your unit off if your house will not become extremely hot or cold.

Hopefully, you now understand more about HVAC systems in general. If you are in need of repair, you know how to find it. Refer back to this article as necessary to make sure that you’re on the right track.
