You may not even think about your HVAC system until it doesn’t work. When that occurs, it is then urgent. It can be difficult to find the right person to fix or install your HVAC system. This article can help you navigate your way through the process.

TIP! Know what you need before you hire a contractor. You might not be able to get a price quote unless you let the contractor see your current system first.

If your HVAC system us giving you issues, take a look around the house prior to calling a contractor. Make a list of the temperatures in each room and whether they are hot or cold. Taking this step aids a contractor in figuring out what the problem is and how to repair it as quickly as possible.

TIP! To make sure your condenser fan works properly, keep the fan blades and the coils clean. Prior to working on or cleaning the unit, be sure to turn off the power.

Clean your fan blades and coils each spring to ensure that your condenser fan operates at it’s best. Turn off your power before doing any job like this. In addition, be sure to get rid of any leaves or other debris that may have accumulated on the outside condenser.

TIP! Keep your outdoor units free of debris when your cutting grass. Aim your grass cuttings in a direction away from your unit.

Clean the condenser on your debris regularly. You don’t know the amount of stuff that can pile up right after heavy winds or a storm. It could overheat and cause a disaster with your unit.

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.

Keep your outdoor units free of debris when your cutting grass. Direct the clippings away from the equipment. Be just as mindful when you blow leaves to not blow them toward your HVAC equipment.

TIP! You want to put the outdoor compressor device in a shaded area. If it sucks in cool air, it will need to work less to coll the air inside, which can make it last longer.

If there are oil ports on your fan condenser, lubricate it annually. These ports have a metal covering. Sometimes it is rubber. Your oil should be an SAE 20. This particular oil is very lightweight and it only requires about 10 drops per port.

TIP! In order for your new unit to be as efficient as possible, or to make older units more efficient, make sure it’s put in a shaded area. If your air conditioner is able to constantly suck in cool air, it won’t have to work overtime to cool your space, which can in turn save you money on your electricity bills.
