HVAC Tips, Tricks And Techniques You Need

TIP! Check the whole house before you call for help. Find out which rooms are hot and which are cold.

Not everyone knows about working on HVAC systems. This fact can become a problem if it is time to work on a heating or cooling problem in a home. The good news for you is that you can use the advice presented below to help you figure out how to tackle an HVAC issue.

Before calling anyone to repair your system, know what system you have. Look for the model and brand number. The contractor will likely need all of this information.

TIP! Before the summer you should clean out your condenser fan’s blades and coils. Except when you do superficial cleaning, you need to always make sure the power is off on the unit.

It is important to have some knowledge of your present system and needs before calling a contractor. It will be hard for a contractor to give you a price estimate over the phone if they have not seen your current system. In addition, you need to be able to tell the contractor what you have already tried. Having this information handy will make the process much smoother.

TIP! If you have units that are condensers outside of the home, keep them free of debris. Wind can pile up all sorts of debris against its grill.

If your unit is outdoors, clean them regularly. Debris quickly gathers here, even more so if there is a storm. This can cause major issues with your system. The whole thing can overheat, causing major problems and possibly an enormous expense for you.

TIP! Be sure to clean the fan blades and coils of the condenser fan. Before you do so, shut off the power to ensure that none of the parts will move while you work on it.

Cover your unit when you are mowing the lawn. Instead, make sure that the grass is shooting in the opposite direction. Be just as mindful when you blow leaves to not blow them toward your HVAC equipment.

TIP! Don’t let your outdoor HVAC units get smothered with clippings anytime you mow the yard. Try shooting the clippings away from it.

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 can easily find the ports as they have a rubber or metal cap. Your oil should be an SAE 20. This particular oil is very lightweight and it only requires about 10 drops per port.

TIP! The HVAC unit in your home can become damaged from falling leaves. At least twice a week, you need to clean the grill of your fan.

Homeowners fear their HVAC system breaking down. However, if you just take your time to learn things about this kind of a topic before things go wrong, it won’t be so bad for you. Having these tricks and tips handy will help a homeowner solve any HVAC issues affordably and promptly.
