HVAC Getting You Down? These Tips Will Help

TIP! When you start making calls to get someone to help with your HVAC system, it’s a good idea to know what system you have before that phone call. Write down the make, model, and any maintenance history.

It is difficult to get into HVAC, but once you have the right information it is easy. If you want to learn a little more about something like this, then this article is going to help you out. Read on to learn everything you can.

TIP! If your HVAC doesn’t seem to be working properly, check things out yourself prior to calling in a technician. Make a list of the temperatures in each room and whether they are hot or cold.

Check the whole house before you call for help. Determine which rooms feel cold and which feel hot. That way, the contractor will have an easier time diagnosing the problem and repairing it fast.

TIP! Clean your condenser’s fan blades and coils come spring. Turn off your power before doing any job like this.

Clean the condenser coils and fan at the beginning of the year to help the unit run efficiently. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit. In addition, be sure to get rid of any leaves or other debris that may have accumulated on the outside condenser.

TIP! If you have outside condenser units, make sure to regularly clean the debris that builds up. Things tend to pile up around these units, especially after storms come through, which could cause problems to your system.

If your unit is outdoors, clean them regularly. You never know when things can pile up, especially after a windy or rainy storm, and that can throw a wrench in your system. It will damage the system by overheating.

TIP! If your fan condenser has oil ports, you must lubricate it once per year. These ports are typically covered with caps made of metal or rubber.

Clean the coils on the condenser fan from time to time. Shut the power off before you do anything. Take the grill off and pull the blades out to clean them.

TIP! It is very important that your HVAC system is serviced two times a year. Checks in the spring as well as in autumn are the best.

As the leaves are falling off the trees, your HVAC system can really take a hit. When you notice your trees shedding, frequently clean your unit’s fan grill. The fan should have a clear path for air to come in. If it is blocked, your system will suffer.

TIP! Turn off outdoor condenser units when weather turns cold. When the temperature goes below 60 degrees, shut off the unit in order to prevent damage.

After reading the above article, you should have a good understanding of what your HVAC system is all about. It’s always a good thing to take your time with it all so that you can learn the ropes. Use these suggestions as you need.
