Helpful Hints For HVAC Novices And Pros

TIP! Know the name and type of your HVAC system before looking for a repair person. Write down the make, model, and any maintenance history.

Letting your HVAC system fall into ruin is an incredibly foolish decision for any homeowner. You likely have an interest in discovering how to make your HVAC system work well for years to come. This article will help you to become educated on the topic.

TIP! Know what you need before you hire a contractor. A contractor cannot give an accurate estimate without looking at your system.

Before you hire an HVAC contractor, have some sort of idea of the work that needs to be done. They won’t be able to offer you a quote if they haven’t seen your system. It can be harder if you don’t know what’s wrong. So, figure out this information before anything else.

TIP! Clean your fan and coils when the weather begins to warm. Before you do clean the coils and fan blades, always take the precaution of turning off all power to the unit.

If there are condenser units as part of your HVAC system, clean them often as they tend to have lots of debris. You never know when things can pile up, especially after a windy or rainy storm, and that can throw a wrench in your system. It can overheat, leading to disaster within your system.

TIP! If your condenser units are outisde, make sure any debris is cleaned from them regularly. Wind can pile up all sorts of debris against its grill.

Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. Be sure to turn the power off first; you don’t want anything to move. Take the grill off and pull the blades out to clean them.

TIP! Do not allow grass clippings to cover the outdoor unit of your HVAC system. When you work with your lawn mower, make sure it spits the grass to the side opposite of your unit.

Don’t let your outdoor HVAC units get smothered with clippings anytime you mow the yard. Try shooting the clippings away from it. This also applies to blowing leaves or moving debris. Just be careful with that exterior HVAC unit.

TIP! Fall is a hard time on HVAC units. Make sure you clean out your fan grill often once nearby trees start shedding their leaves.

As the leaves are falling off the trees, your HVAC system can really take a hit. When you notice your trees shedding, frequently clean your unit’s fan grill. The fan must be unobstructed to work properly, and if it becomes blocked, it could cause your system to break down.

TIP! Lubricate your fan condenser if it has oil ports. These ports are often covered by a rubber or metal cap.

It should be obvious to you that you must care for your HVAC system properly in order to avoid problems. If you don’t do this and your system breaks, the repair bill can be very costly. Make sure that this does not happen in your home; remember the advice that you read here.
