HVAC Tips And Tricks You Need To Know

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.

Keeping your HVAC system running well is important, even though many people don’t know how. It is important that you have a good professional to work on the unit when necessary and that you understand a bit about how to maintain the unit. The article that follows below can help.

TIP! Think about what improvements you want made before picking an HVAC contractor. It will be difficult for an HVAC contractor to provide you with an estimate on the phone without knowing what your current setup is.

Go through your home before you call HVAC professional. Note which rooms are hot and which are cold. This information will help the contractor determine where the problem is and how to fix it.

TIP! Clean the debris on your condenser units. Things pile up after storms and damage your system.

Keeping the outside condenser clean of debris and leaves will improve the system’s efficiency. Always shut off all power to your unit for any work beyond superficial cleaning. Remove leaves and debris from the condenser outside.

TIP! Don’t get grass clippings on your outside unit. Shoot grass the other way.

Clean the debris off your outdoor condenser unit. You never know when things can pile up, especially after a windy or rainy storm, and that can throw a wrench in your system. Debris like this can cause it to overheat, which could be detrimental to your system.

TIP! 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.

Clean the fan blades and coils in your condenser each spring. Shut the power off before you do anything. Then, remove the grill, then remove the blades and begin the cleaning process of the blades and the unit.

TIP! Some fan condensers may contain oil parts, and if yours does, ensure it is lubricated at least once per year. You’ll find these ports are covered with a metal or rubber cap.

When you cut the grass, don’t cover the outdoor units with their clippings. Try shooting the clippings away from it. Be just as mindful when you blow leaves to not blow them toward your HVAC equipment.

TIP! It is very important that your HVAC system is serviced two times a year. The ideal thing to do would be to have it checked out in the fall and spring so you’re able to figure out if everything is ready for the cold and hot months.

Lubricate your fan condenser at least once a year. These ports have a metal covering. Sometimes it is rubber. Use SAE 20 oil that is lightweight and detergent free, and put ten drops or fewer into each one. Make sure not to overfill them.

TIP! Condenser units for the outdoors should be shut off when it starts to get cold outside. This means that you should turn it off to prevent damage if the weather falls under 60 degrees Farenheit.

A good heating and cooling system is critical to maintaining a comfortable home. However, big issues can occur when one doesn’t know much about them. These suggestions should help you to keep your system running well.
