All The Help You Need To Maximize HVAC Success

TIP! Think about what improvements you want made before picking an HVAC contractor. It will be hard for a contractor to give you a price estimate over the phone if they have not seen your current system.

Most people suddenly fill dread when they get home after a long day and learn their cooling or heating system is not working the way it should. The HVAC system is critical to your quality of life, so maintenance is key. Read on to learn how to properly maintain your unit.

TIP! Clean the coils of your condenser fan each month. Be safe and turn off the power supply before working on your HVAC unit.

Check out the system that you have before you call a professional. It is important to understand what model it is and which brand it is. Also, if it has been serviced before, you should have that information handy. This will let you know that you’re able to give the contractor the information that can help them.

TIP! Keep your outdoor units free of debris when your cutting grass. When you work with your lawn mower, make sure it spits the grass to the side opposite of your unit.

Check the whole house before you call for help. Make note of which rooms are cold and which are hot. This can help the contractor determine the problem areas quickly and fix the problem easily.

TIP! If you have a fan condenser with oil ports, it needs to be lubricated every year. These ports are typically covered with caps made of metal or rubber.

Before selecting a HVAC repairman, know what you need done. A contractor will be hard pressed to provide you with an over-the-phone estimate if unfamiliar with your system. It will be even harder if you cannot explain what you have done. Make an effort to gather all information you need before making the phone call.

TIP! Try to choose a shady place to locate the outdoor compressor device. The unit will operate more efficiently to cool your home if the intake air is cooler to begin with.

Clean the fan blades and coils in your condenser each spring. Before you get started, cut the power. Then remove the grill, remove the blades and clean it from top to bottom gently.

TIP! Place your HVAC unit in the shade to boost efficiency. This will help you save on your energy bill.

Leaves falling from trees can wreak havoc with your HVAC unit. During this time of year, check and clear off the fan grill on your unit on a regular basis. Your fan needs an unobstructed way to get air inside, and the more blocked up it becomes, the more headaches will develop for you with the system.

TIP! Condenser units for the outdoors should be shut off when it starts to get cold outside. If temps go below 60 you run the risk of damaging a unit that remains on.

Use the tips from this article to help your system run smoothly. It’s a dreadful feeling if you come home and realize your vents don’t have air coming out. It’s even worse to think about how much it will cost to fix. Use these tips to help avoid costly problems. Remember these hints when taking care of your HVAC system.
