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

TIP! Be aware of the type of system that is installed in your home prior to calling a contractor to fix it. Look for the model and brand number.

Having a great HVAC system that works well can make a home run better. The cool breeze from the AC in summer and warm gush of air in winter are simply unbeatable. If your system breaks, it can be very frustrating. You must learn how to properly maintain your HVAC, and the following article has some basic info for you.

TIP! Before contacting a repair service, do a short tour of the entire home. Make a list of the rooms which are comfortable and which just aren’t.

Before you call someone to help you fix your system, be sure to know what sort of system you have in place. Get the brand, model name, and if you can you should get the maintenance history out. This will facilitate the process when your contractor asks for this information.

TIP! Clean your fan and coils when the weather begins to warm. Always make sure you shut off the power before you do any work on the unit other than superficial cleaning.

Before the summer you should clean out your condenser fan’s blades and coils. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit. Clean the outdoor condenser as well.

TIP! Be sure to regularly clean debris from external condenser units. Your HVAC system may run into problems after storms if it is surrounded by debris.

Every spring you should clean the coils and fan blades on your condenser fan. Be sure to turn the power off first; you don’t want anything to move. Then, take off the grill and get the blades out. Clean everything with care.

TIP! Lubricate the oil ports on your condenser once each year. You’ll find these ports are covered with a metal or rubber cap.

Try to prevent debris from getting in your HVAC unit. When you see nearby trees shedding their leaves, clean the fan grill on your unit constantly. A blocked unit can quickly become a broken unit.

Look for shade when placing a compressor outdoors. In this way, it will be cooling air that is already somewhat cooled. This saves energy.

TIP! During cold weather , be sure to turn off outdoor condenser units. The unit will become damaged if you do not take care of it.

It is a good idea to replace single-paned windows with ones that have double panes. You can reduce your energy costs from energy leaking out through your windows by installing window that are double-paned. This also works during the cold months to keep the warm air inside.

TIP! It is always a good idea to swap out single pane windows for double pane ones. Try to insulate your windows to prevent air from being lost.

You should now know more about your HVAC unit. Only bad things happen when you fail to perform routine inspections. With this advice in mind, you are ready to care for your system.
