HVAC Can Be Easy With This Guide

TIP! If you are having issues with your HVAC, do a tour of your house before you call in help. Make a list of the rooms which are comfortable and which just aren’t.

It is very frustrating to return home at the end of the day to discover your HVAC has broken down. Comfort comes with maintaining your system. Read on to learn how to properly maintain your unit.

TIP! When you call an HVAC system for help, you need to be aware of what you need them to do before calling. You might not be able to get a price quote unless you let the contractor see your current system first.

Before calling for help, know the system you have. Write down the brand and the model and have all maintenance records on hand. This will give contractor’s a better idea of what to expect before they show up, which will help things go more smoothly on arrival.

TIP! Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. Before you begin cleaning the unit, make sure that it is unplugged.

If your HVAC system is acting up, take a tour of the house prior to calling a professional. Notice the temperature in each room. Are some cooler or hotter than others? This information will help the contractor determine where the problem is and how to fix it.

TIP! If the fan condenser on your unit has ports for oil, make sure you lubricate it once a year. You will notice these ports have a rubber or metal cap covering them.

Know what work you want done before you select an HVAC contractor. A contractor will be hard pressed to provide you with an over-the-phone estimate if unfamiliar with your system. Getting an estimate will be even more difficult if you cannot adequately describe the problem. Be sure to find this out ahead of time.

TIP! Try to choose a shady place to locate the outdoor compressor device. The cooler air that the unit can suck in, the less work it will need to do to further cool the air.

Clean the condenser on your debris regularly. Things pile up after storms and damage your system. If you do not, the unit may get too hot and cause additional problems.

TIP! Turn off your outdoor condenser when it’s getting cold. If the temperature drops to under 60 degrees, you risk damage to the unit if you leave it on.

Check to determine if the fan condenser on your HVAC system is equipped with oil ports, and if it is, be sure to lubricate every year. You’ll see that the ports here are closed with a rubber or metal cap. Use a lightweight oil and do not overfill them.

TIP! A programmable thermostat can really help you out when it comes to your power bills. A thermostat that’s programmable is going to save you around ten percent on the heating and cooling costs you have to pay when you turn it back about fifteen percent for a part of the day.

Make sure that your HVAC system runs smooth by sticking to the tips in the above article. It is never pleasant to come home and discover that your HVAC is not working. Then thinking about repair costs makes it even worse. Prevent all this from happening by using the information you’ve just read. Use the information here to carry out maintenance as needed to keep your unit running smoothly.
