Helping You Better Understand Hvac With These Simple To Follow Tips

Many people have HVAC systems, but don’t know how to take care of them. Learning this is an important thing for a homeowner to do. This article will help.

TIP! If you are having issues with your HVAC, do a tour of your house before you call in help. Make note of which rooms are cold and which are hot.

Before you start calling to find someone to fix your unit, make sure you know the type of system that is installed. Know the brand name and model number. It is also helpful to have the maintenance history. The contractor will likely need all of this information.

TIP! Before the summer you should clean out your condenser fan’s blades and coils. Shut off power before working or cleaning your system.

Check the whole house before you call for help. Make a list of the temperatures in each room and whether they are hot or cold. That knowledge can help the technician figure out what is going on.

TIP! Regularly remove debris from outside condenser units. After a wind or rain storm things may pile up, causing problems with your HVAC system.

Before you choose someone to do HVAC work, figure out what they need to do for you. This will make the quote process much easier. Being unable to explain what has been already done will make it even harder. So, figure out this information before anything else.

TIP! HVAC units may suffer when leaves are falling off the trees. Make sure you clean out your fan grill often once nearby trees start shedding their leaves.

Clean the coils of your condenser fan each month. Make sure your power is off before doing more than cleaning, such as working on the unit. Clean the outdoor condenser as well.

TIP! 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.

Make sure that you regularly clean debris that might build up on external condenser units. Wind can pile up all sorts of debris against its grill. Debris like this can cause it to overheat, which could be detrimental to your system.

TIP! When selecting the spot to put the outdoor compressor for your unit, choose somewhere that gets plenty of shade. When your unit takes in cool air, it takes less energy to tool the air, thus boosting efficiency.

Clean your condenser’s fan blades and coil in the spring. Be sure to turn the power off first; you don’t want anything to move. Next, pop off the grill, pull out the blades and start cleaning them and the unit itself off gently.

TIP! Turn off your outdoor condenser when it’s getting cold. Once the temperature drops into the 50s, the unit should no longer be on.

There are few things more important to a comfortable home environment than a properly working HVAC system. However, big issues can occur when one doesn’t know much about them. This information will help you decide what to do.
