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

TIP! Before making that repair phone call, make sure you know the specifics about your particular system. Learn the brand, model, and if you have it, the maintenance history.

Most people suddenly fill dread when they get home after a long day and learn their cooling or heating system is not working the way it should. It is essential that you take proper care of it. Below there are many good tips to help you do that, so keep reading!

TIP! Go through your home before you call HVAC professional. Make a list of the temperatures in each room and whether they are hot or cold.

Before you contact people to assist you in getting your system fixed, know what kind of system you’re working with in the first 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! Before choosing a HVAC company find out what the company offers. A contractor will not be able to give you an accurate price without accurate information about your system.

If your HVAC is giving you problems, tour your home before calling a technician. Know what part of the house is cold and which is hot. This information will help the contractor determine where the problem is and how to fix it.

TIP! When you cut the grass, don’t cover the outdoor units with their clippings. Get the grass shot away from your unit.

If you have outside condenser units, make sure to regularly clean the debris that builds up. Debris can pile up after a storm, bringing potential damage with it. This can lead to overheating.

TIP! HVAC units may suffer when leaves are falling off the trees. When you see nearby trees shedding their leaves, clean the fan grill on your unit constantly.

Make certain that you clean your condenser when the weather begins to warm. Turn it off first so you don’t get hurt or break something. Then you need to get the grill popped off and get the blades out so you can clean them and your unit gently.

TIP! Lubricate your fan condenser if it has oil ports. You will see rubber or metal caps covering the ports.

As the leaves are falling off the trees, your HVAC system can really take a hit. Clean the fan grill often when leaves are falling. The fan must be unobstructed to work properly, and if it becomes blocked, it could cause your system to break down.

TIP! Have your heating and cooling system inspected twice a year. This should be checked often for debris and malfunctions.

Be sure you keep your HVAC up and running by using the advice found above. A breakdown of your unit can be frustrating. Then thinking about repair costs makes it even worse. Prevent this with the solid information you have here. Remember these tips to help you maintain your HVAC system.
