How To Get Your HVAC To Work For You

TIP! Before contacting a repair service, do a short tour of the entire home. Figure out which rooms feel hot and which feel cold.

Most people are not happy when their HVAC unit breaks during a cold winter or hot summer day. The key to finding the right people to install new equipment or repair the old is to learn everything possible about the topic in advance. Read on for such knowledge.

TIP! You need to lubricate parts of your fan condenser. You’ll find these ports are covered with a metal or rubber cap.

Clean the fan blades and coils prior to summertime. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit. Also, make sure you remove any debris or leaves from the condenser unit outside.

TIP! Be sure you have the HVAC unit in your home checked about two times every year. This should be done in Fall and Spring to prepare it for the extreme months.

Clean the condenser on your debris regularly. Debris quickly gathers here, even more so if there is a storm. This can cause major issues with your system. It can cause your system to malfunction by overheating.

TIP! When the weather cools down, turn your outdoor condenser off. If temps go below 60 you run the risk of damaging a unit that remains on.

Each spring, try cleaning the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan. Be sure to turn the power off first; you don’t want anything to move. After you have turned the power off, you simply remove the grill and the blades to perform a gentle cleansing.

TIP! If you can, install double-paned windows throughout your home. You can reduce your energy costs from energy leaking out through your windows by installing window that are double-paned.

When you’re trying to cut your grass, don’t cover a unit outside with the clippings. Direct the clippings away from the equipment. The same goes for when you blow leaves, so make sure your are careful when moving any debris in the vicinity of your HVAC devices.

TIP! If there isn’t anyone at home, then there’s no need for the AC unit to be running and wasting electricity. Your home will become somewhat warmer during this time.

Lubricate your fan condenser if it has oil ports. Most of these ports have some sort of protective cap covering them. Get an oil that is SAE 20 and put about 10 drops into each port, but don’t overfill it.

TIP! In order to select an HVAC contractor that you can trust, it pays to invest some time researching a few prospective companies and checking their reputations. It is always wise to check their status with the BBB.

A shady spot is always a good choice for the placement of your outdoor compressor. The cooler the air that the unit is able to access, the less work it has to perform.

TIP! Sometimes, air conditioning units ice up. You may even encounter a freeze in your drain line which is often confused with a plumbing leak.

Engaging in HVAC professional services may be overwhelming without proper information. However, armed with information, the process doesn’t have to be difficult. With the information given, you will hopefully be prepared now.
