HVAC Tips And Tricks You Need To Know

TIP! 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. Look for the model and brand number.

Lots of folks want HVAC units in their houses. An HVAC unit is designed to keep your home’s temperature comfortable for you throughout the year. You will likely need to hire a professional to install it and maintain it. Read on for solid tips that will help you with your HVAC unit.

TIP! In order to keep your outside condenser fan running efficiently, make sure the coils and the fan blades are cleaned before the cooling season begins. Before you clean the unit, be sure to turn off the power.

If you have some problems with the HVAC system, check out your home before calling a contractor. Note which rooms are hot and which are cold. That knowledge can help the technician figure out what is going on.

TIP! Be sure to clean the fan blades and coils of the condenser fan. Be sure to turn the power off first; you don’t want anything to move.

Don’t hire a contractor until you know a little about what you are facing. It is going to be hard to get a price estimate on the phone if the current system isn’t something they’ve seen. If you are unable to explain the work that needs to be taken care of, the conversation will be even less fruitful. So, figure out this information before anything else.

Clean the debris off your outdoor condenser unit. Things pile up after storms and damage your system. It may begin to overheat, causing massive damage.

TIP! If you have a fan condenser with oil ports, it needs to be lubricated every year. These ports have a metal covering.

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 needs unobstructed air flow, and if debris is blocking this air flow, then your system could suffer.

TIP! A shady spot is always a good choice for the placement of your outdoor compressor. The cooler the air which goes in, the less work the unit will have to do.

Check to determine if the fan condenser on your HVAC system is equipped with oil ports, and if it is, be sure to lubricate every year. You will notice these ports have a rubber or metal cap covering them. Buy an SAE 20 product that is lightweight, and then put no more than ten drops into the ports.

TIP! Boost energy efficiency by putting your condenser unit in the shade. It will reduce the temperature of the air going into the unit, meaning that it will not have to work as hard to cool it.

As this article shows, there are things which can be helpful when dealing with HVAC systems and contractors. It is critical that the unit receives proper installation and that it is maintained correctly. Put this advice to good use so that you have minimal issues in the future.
