HVAC Tips You Can’t Master The Topic Without

TIP! Before making that repair phone call, make sure you know the specifics about your particular system. Find out the brand and model and, if possible, dig out the maintenance history.

It is frustrating to have a failing HVAC system when it is super hot or super cold. Finding the correct company will help you in the long run. This article will get you started.

TIP! Before you choose someone to do HVAC work, figure out what they need to do for you. It will be difficult for an HVAC contractor to provide you with an estimate on the phone without knowing what your current setup is.

Make a circuit around your home before calling for help with your HVAC. Determine which rooms feel cold and which feel hot. Doing so can help your technician fix your HVAC issue quickly.

TIP! Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. Before you get started, cut the power.

Keep outside condenser fans running smoothly by cleaning fan blades and coils before the summer begins. Always turn the unit off before you do anything to it, including leaning. Remove leaves and debris from the outdoor unit.

TIP! The operation of your HVAC system can be in danger when the tree leaves begin to fall. Clean outdoor units often to remove leaves.

As you notice the tress begin to lose their leaves, keep an eye on your outdoor condenser unit. Make certain you are cleaning the fan grill often if trees nearby have leaves that are falling. If your fan is obstructed, it can keep your system from working properly.

TIP! Try to choose a shady place to locate the outdoor compressor device. The unit will operate more efficiently to cool your home if the intake air is cooler to begin with.

If you have oil ports as part of the fan condenser, annual lubrication is key. Most of these ports have some sort of protective 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. As it brings in cool air to cool, you will save a lot of money.

If you want to know where you should put an outdoor compressor, you should place it somewhere where there is a lot of shade. The unit will operate more efficiently to cool your home if the intake air is cooler to begin with.

TIP! Condenser units for the outdoors should be shut off when it starts to get cold outside. If temps go below 60 you run the risk of damaging a unit that remains on.

Get your HVAC unit serviced two times per year. The normally recommended time for HVAC system inspections is once before the peak cooling season when it gets hot and you’ll be using your AC, and once before the peak heating season, during the cold months when you’re likely to be using your heat. Even if you don’t think anything’s wrong, it’s still worth an inspection.

TIP! If you own your own home or have permission from your landlord, replace your single pane windows with double paned versions. To keep your home cool, investing in double pane windows is a must.

Having to use a HVAC contractor might be daunting if you don’t have proper information. But, it’s not so difficult with good advice. Hopefully, you’re now ready to tackle any issues that come up with your HVAC system.
