HVAC Do’s And Don’ts For The Average Person

TIP! Make a circuit around your home before calling for help with your HVAC. Note which of your rooms are hot and which are cold.

A properly maintained HVAC system will last a long time. HVAC systems that works poorly can cost the homeowner more money in the long run. To better understand what you need to do in order to have an HVAC system in perfectly good condition, keep reading for many solid tips and ideas in the following article.

TIP! What do you need done? Know this before calling a contractor. It will be hard for a contractor to give you a price estimate over the phone if they have not seen your current system.

If you’ve been having trouble with an HVAC system, look around your home before calling in people to help. Figure out which rooms are hot and cold. This will allow a contractor to quickly figure out what the issue is and how it can be fixed fast.

TIP! To make sure your condenser fan works properly, keep the fan blades and the coils clean. Except when you do superficial cleaning, you need to always make sure the power is off on the unit.

Every spring you need to make sure your condenser fan’s coils and blades on the fan part are clean. First, the power should be turned off so things don’t move as you work. Then take off the grill, take the blades out, and gently clean them.

TIP! Be sure to clean external condenser units regularly. After a wind or rain storm things may pile up, causing problems with your HVAC system.

When you mow your lawn, take care that you don’t get grass clippings all over your outdoor unit. Shoot the grass away from the unit. When blowing leaves, do the same. Always take care when passing your HVAC units while moving leaves, grass or other debris.

TIP! A big mistake that people make is cutting the grass next to the outdoor condenser unit and allowing all of the clippings to blow inside the fan and coil. Direct the clippings away from the equipment.

As you notice the tress begin to lose their leaves, keep an eye on your outdoor condenser unit. Clean outdoor units often to remove leaves. You can head off future problems that can be caused by blockages by making sure there is a free flow of air to your fan.

TIP! Try to prevent debris from getting in your HVAC unit. Frequently clean the fan grill when trees are shedding leaves.

If the condenser fan has oil parts, then you need to lubricate it at least once per year. They generally have a rubber or metal cap on them. You should select an SAE 20 oil since it is lightweight and does not contain detergent. Be sure to use just 10 drops or so, or your system may overfill.

TIP! Put outdoor units in the shade if you are installing them. This will ensure cool air is sucked in, meaning less cooling must be done by the unit.

After reading the above article dedicated to HVAC units, there should be no reason why you can’t keep your system running smoothly well into the future. You don’t want a HVAC system that costs you more money. Bookmark these suggestions and refer back to them as needed.
