Helping You Better Understand Hvac With These Simple To Follow Tips

TIP! Be aware of the type of system that is installed in your home prior to calling a contractor to fix it. Know the brand name and model number.

As you may know, a properly performing heating and cooling system in the home leads to one of the most comfortable aspects of our daily lives. Without the cool air during summer or the warm air during winter, life is much less comfortable. But, it can change fast if you have an HVAC emergency. You must learn proper maintenance for these systems; the article below can help with that.

TIP! Know what you need before you hire a contractor. It will be difficult for an HVAC contractor to provide you with an estimate on the phone without knowing what your current setup is.

Before you start calling to find someone to fix your unit, make sure you know the type of system that is installed. Look for the maintenance history and brand and model. The contractor will likely need all of this information.

TIP! Make sure that you regularly clean debris that might build up on external condenser units. Debris can pile up after a storm, bringing potential damage with it.

When you call an HVAC system for help, you need to be aware of what you need them to do before calling. They won’t be able to offer you a quote if they haven’t seen your system. They need to come look at the unit. Having this information handy will make the process much smoother.

TIP! Clean the coils on the condenser fan from time to time. Before you get started, cut the power.

Every spring you should clean the coils and fan blades on your condenser fan. Before you do so, shut off the power to ensure that none of the parts will move while you work on it. Secondly, pop the grill off, take the blades off and clean them as well as the actual unit.

TIP! Your HVAC system could suffer when trees begin dropping their leaves. Make sure the unit’s fan grill is cleaned frequently when the leaves begin to fall.

Some fan condensers may contain oil parts, and if yours does, ensure it is lubricated at least once per year. Such ports tend to have coverings made of rubber or metal. Use a lightweight, detergent-free SAE 20 oil, putting 10 drops in each port.

Hvac System

TIP! If the current location of your HVAC unit outside isn’t working, try having it moved to an area with more shade. If the air your machine draws in is already cooler, it will require less energy to regulate before it’s filtered into your home.

Now you understand why it’s important to keep the HVAC system working properly. When you decide to postpone mandatory maintenance, small problems will quickly become big nightmares. Thankfully you found this article, and now you’re able to use the awesome tips here to assist you in figuring out what to do with your HVAC system.
