An Easy-to-understand Guide To All Your HVAC Questions

TIP! If the outside of your home has condenser units, ensure they are constantly cleaned. Things pile up after storms and damage your system.

When you think about HVAC, you may think it sounds complicated. This is probably because you don’t have the right information on hand. However, you can learn quite a bit which you can use to help you.

TIP! Be sure to clean the fan blades and coils of the condenser fan. First, turn the power off so nothing moves when you’re working with it.

If problems arise with the HVAC system, check the entire house before contacting someone to come for repairs. Know what part of the house is cold and which is hot. Figuring this out will the contractor to diagnose the issues and quickly get to work on fixing it.

TIP! Do not allow grass clippings to cover the outdoor unit of your HVAC system. Aim the grass clippings in the other direction.

It is important to have some knowledge of your present system and needs before calling a contractor. You can’t get a decent estimate over a telephone, so disregard those numbers and wait until they view your system. If you can’t explain anything to them, this will be even more difficult. Know this stuff ahead of time.

TIP! As the trees around your home lose leaves, it can cause your HVAC unit trouble. Frequently clean the fan grill when trees are shedding leaves.

Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. Start by turning off the power to avoid having anything move when you work on it. Secondly, pop the grill off, take the blades off and clean them as well as the actual unit.

TIP! If possible, put your HVAC in a shaded area if it is outside. This will ensure cool air is sucked in, meaning less cooling must be done by the unit.

Don’t get grass clippings on your outside unit. Have the grass shoot in the opposite direction. This also applies to blowing leaves or moving debris. Just be careful with that exterior HVAC unit.

TIP! Have the HVAC system serviced twice per year. The fall and spring are the optimal times for this maintenance.

If there are oil ports on your fan condenser, lubricate it annually. You can easily find the ports as they have a rubber or metal cap. You should select an SAE 20 oil since it is lightweight and does not contain detergent. Be sure to use just 10 drops or so, or your system may overfill.

TIP! Replace any single-paned windows with double-paned versions. To keep your home cool, investing in double pane windows is a must.

Understanding how to work with the HVAC unit should be more apparent to you know. Sometimes it can be difficult if you are not motivated to learn, so you have to keep that in mind. You’ll be happy you did when things start clicking in your mind!
