HVAC Doesn’t Have To Be Hard, Here’s Help

TIP! Know the name and type of your HVAC system before looking for a repair person. Look for the model and brand number.

The comfort of a home has a lot to do with whether or not it is being heated or cooled properly. Because of this, you should make sure that your home’s HVAC system is working properly. Without taking care of the HVAC system, you will be uncomfortable while you wait for an expensive repair. Below, you will find some great tips that range from finding a good contractor to ensuring your unit is working properly.

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

Make a circuit around your home before calling for help with your HVAC. Make note of which rooms are cold and which are hot. You can then relay this information to the technician so that they can more easily figure out what the problem is.

TIP! Clean the condenser coils and fan at the beginning of the year to help the unit run efficiently. Make sure your power is off before doing more than cleaning, such as working on the unit.

Think about what improvements you want made before picking an HVAC contractor. A contractor cannot give an accurate estimate without looking at your system. If you do not know what you want, the process can become tedious, especially over the phone. It’s important to know this beforehand.

TIP! Outdoor condenser units need to be cleaned regularly. Things tend to pile up around these units, especially after storms come through, which could cause problems to your system.

Clean the coils and blades in your condenser at the beginning of summer. Before you do clean the coils and fan blades, always take the precaution of turning off all power to the unit. Remove leaves and debris from the outdoor unit.

TIP! Don’t get grass clippings on your outside unit. Make certain the debris goes away from it.

Clean the debris from outside units often. Falling leaves and wind or rain may cause debris to reduce the efficiency of your unit. It could overheat and cause a disaster with your unit.

TIP! If the fan condenser on your unit has ports for oil, make sure you lubricate it once a year. These are usually covered with rubber or metal caps.

Make sure your condenser fan is in good working order by wiping down the fan blades and the coils. Before you do so, shut off the power to ensure that none of the parts will move while you work on it. Next, pop off the grill, pull out the blades and start cleaning them and the unit itself off gently.

TIP! Condenser units for the outdoors should be shut off when it starts to get cold outside. This should be done when the temperature drops below 60ºF to avoid damage.

You now have an idea of what it takes to keep an HVAC system running great. You must stay on top of things! Use what you’ve learned here to keep things working right so you don’t get home and find out there’s a disaster on your hands.
