HVAC Tips You Can’t Master The Topic Without

TIP! What system do you have? You need this information to tell your contractor. You need to know who manufactured the product and the item number.

Although many people have an interest in learning about their HVAC, many believe it is too difficult to handle. You shouldn’t let this hold you back, though. The following article offers great suggestions for you to follow to help make this easier.

TIP! Cleaning the blades and coils will help the system run better. Turn off the power if you are going to work on your HVAC system.

If your HVAC doesn’t seem to be working properly, check things out yourself prior to calling in a technician. You will be looking to see which of your rooms feel hotter or colder than they should be. This information will help the contractor determine where the problem is and how to fix it.

TIP! If your condenser units are outisde, make sure any debris is cleaned from them regularly. Wind can pile up all sorts of debris against its grill.

Clean the coils of your condenser fan each month. Always shut off all power to your unit for any work beyond superficial cleaning. Clean off any leaves or debris from your external condenser unit.

Clean the debris on your condenser units. Particularly after bad weather, you should inspect your unit. Overheating could occur, which will be problematic.

TIP! Cover your unit when you are mowing the lawn. Direct the grass clippings in a direction away from the HVAC unit.

Make sure your condenser fan is in good working order by wiping down the fan blades and the coils. First, the power should be turned off so things don’t move as you work. Next, pop the grill off, put the blades out and start to gently clean them along with the unit.

TIP! When you are choosing a location for the outdoor compressor unit, it’s preferable to use a shaded area. If you have a unit taking in air that’s cooler, it won’t have to work so hard to cool air that it sends to your home.

If the condenser fan has oil parts, then you need to lubricate it at least once per year. You can find these ports covered with rubber or metal caps. Pick a type of SAE 20 oil that is non-detergent and lightweight. Place 10 or less drops into every port to avoid overfilling.

TIP! Have the HVAC system checked twice a year at the least. This should happen in the fall and the spring.

For maximum efficiency, place outdoor units in a shady spot. 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.

TIP! When it gets cold outside, it is necessary to turn off outdoor condenser units. If the temperature outside is less than 60ºF, be sure to turn off the unit so that you don’t damage it.

It is crucial that you apply the you just read. Of course, this will be a more hand-on learning experience once you start working with the HVAC system. Get down to work today!
