Helpful Hints For HVAC Novices And Pros

TIP! If you have some problems with the HVAC system, check out your home before calling a contractor. Figure out which rooms are too cool or warm.

Keeping your home’s HVAC system running at its optimal performance is a task most homeowners should do, but not everybody knows how to accomplish that. That’s why it’s smart to hire a very skilled and professional HVAC contractor. The following article can help.

TIP! The HVAC unit in your home can become damaged from falling leaves. When the leaves fall from nearby trees, clean the grill of your fan often.

Know what work you want done before you select an HVAC contractor. It’s hard to get an estimate since they haven’t look at your system. If you are unable to explain the work that needs to be taken care of, the conversation will be even less fruitful. You need to know this before you begin.

TIP! A good place to place your compressor unit outside is in a shady spot. This will limit the work that it has to do.

Make sure your condenser fan is in good working order by wiping down the fan blades and the coils. Shut the power off before you do anything. Then, pop off its grills, pull the blades out, and begin cleaning the unit and them gently.

TIP! Put outdoor condensers in the shade. This will help ensure that the AC is pulling in cooler air, reducing the amount of work it has to do and saving you money.

Cover your unit when you are mowing the lawn. Now so the grass clippings are shot away from your unit. The same thing should go on when you blow leaves, so take your time when you’re working around HVAC units that are around when you’re blowing debris around.

TIP! Have the HVAC system serviced twice per year. This should be checked often for debris and malfunctions.

As you notice the tress begin to lose their leaves, keep an eye on your outdoor condenser unit. At least twice a week, you need to clean the grill of your fan. The air needs to be unobstructed into the fan, and any blockages create performance issues for the whole system.

TIP! Turn off outdoor condenser units when weather turns cold. When the temperature goes below 60 degrees, shut off the unit in order to prevent damage.

If your condenser comes with oil ports, you should lubricate it yearly. You’ll see that the ports here are closed with a rubber or metal 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! Double pane your windows to prevent drafts. Double pane windows help minimize your air conditioning use in the summer by keeping the cooler air inside your home.

The HVAC is one of the most important components of a comfortable, livable home environment. Without proper knowledge for hiring someone that knows what they’re doing, having this equipment break down is frustrating. Fortunately, armed with the information found above, every homeowner can know exactly what to do.
