HVAC Advice That Any Novice Can Understand Easily

TIP! Always make sure you are up-to-date about your HVAC unit. Learn the brand and the model.

A quality HVAC system is important for your home. The heat in the winter and cool air in the summer are very refreshing to come home to. However, it can quickly turn into a nightmare if your HVAC system fails on you. These tips will help you master some very simple HVAC maintenance strategies to prevent this nightmare from occurring.

TIP! In order to keep your outside condenser fan running efficiently, make sure the coils and the fan blades are cleaned before the cooling season begins. Turn off your power before doing any job like this.

If your HVAC system us giving you issues, take a look around the house prior to calling a contractor. Pay attention to which areas of the house are warm and which ones are cool. This will help your contractor quickly determine where the issue lies and how to get it fixed quickly and easily.

TIP! If the condenser for your HVAC system is located outside, make sure you clear away any debris that might settle in or around it. The dirt could pile up and harm your system.

If you have outside condenser units, make sure to regularly clean the debris that builds up. You don’t know when things are going to pile up, like right after it’s windy or rains, and that can ruin your system. Left unchecked, your unit is more likely to break down.

TIP! You should clean your condenser fan’s blades and coils every spring. Start by turning off the power to avoid having anything move when you work on it.

You need to lubricate parts of your fan condenser. These ports are typically covered with caps made of metal or rubber. Your oil should be an SAE 20. This particular oil is very lightweight and it only requires about 10 drops per port.

TIP! Leaves falling from trees can wreak havoc with your HVAC unit. At least twice a week, you need to clean the grill of your fan.

When you are choosing a location for the outdoor compressor unit, it’s preferable to use a shaded area. When your unit is bringing in cool air, it will not have to work as hard to cool the air as it moves it inside, boosting efficiency.

TIP! Make sure you have your HVAC system checked at least twice a year. The normally recommended time for HVAC system inspections is once before the peak cooling season when it gets hot and you’ll be using your AC, and once before the peak heating season, during the cold months when you’re likely to be using your heat.

After going through the advice above, you can see that it’s important to worry about keeping HVAC working properly in your home. You can be in a lot of trouble if you have a poor running HVAC. Use the tips in this article to ensure this does not happen.
