Expert Tips And Tricks For HVAC Success

TIP! If your HVAC system us giving you issues, take a look around the house prior to calling a contractor. Note which of your rooms are hot and which are cold.

HVAC contracting is something that you may know nothing about. This is something you must educate yourself on for emergencies. Reading the article below will be instrumental in helping anyone figure out what to do when trouble occurs.

TIP! By the end of spring, the fan blades and coils of your condenser should be thoroughly cleaned, so operation can proceed with greater efficiency. The power to the unit should be removed before you begin any maintenance, even cleaning.

When you start making calls to get someone to help with your HVAC system, it’s a good idea to know what system you have before that phone call. Write down what brand your system is along with the model number and, if they’re available, maintenance records. This makes sure your contractor will be sufficiently prepared.

TIP! If you have condenser units outside your home, be sure to clean out the debris from them often. Excess debris can really affect your system’s quality.

Prior to choosing an HVAC customer, try to have an idea of what you want done. You might not be able to get a price quote unless you let the contractor see your current system first. If you are unable to explain the work that needs to be taken care of, the conversation will be even less fruitful. Make an effort to gather all information you need before making the phone call.

TIP! Every spring you should clean the coils and fan blades on your condenser fan. Shut the power off before you do anything.

Clean your condenser’s fan blades and coil in the spring. Before you begin cleaning the unit, make sure that it is unplugged. Then you need to get the grill popped off and get the blades out so you can clean them and your unit gently.

TIP! Put outdoor condensers in the shade. When the air conditioner pulls in cooler air, it won’t have to do much more to cool it and that will save you a lot of money on energy bills.

If you have oil ports as part of the fan condenser, annual lubrication is key. You’ll find these ports are covered with a metal or rubber cap. Pick out a SAE 20 type of oil because it has no detergent, is lightweight, and you should put around 10 drops in the ports but make it to where they don’t get too full.

TIP! When it gets cold outside, the outdoor condenser unit should be turned off. To prevent damage, turn off your unit if the outside temperature is less than 60 degrees.

Dealing with a broken HVAC system is a nightmare every homeowner dreads. But, with a little of research the problem may not be as big as you expect. It is possible for any homeowner to solve any issues quickly and at a reasonable cost by remembering the advice found here.
