Learn About Hvac With These Simple To Follow Tips

TIP! Before selecting a HVAC repairman, know what you need done. This will make the quote process much easier.

When your HVAC system works right, it is a great thing to have. A cool home in the summer and a hot home in the winter feel great. But when your system suddenly stops working, the situation can become frustrating very quickly. It is important that you learn how to properly maintain your HVAC system, and this article will show you how that can be done.

TIP! Help the outside condenser fan run efficiently by cleaning the coils and fan blades before the summer starts. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit.

TIP! Your outdoor HVAC units might suffer when your trees lose leaves. Be sure to clean your fan grill frequently when trees nearby are shedding.

Your outdoor HVAC units might suffer when your trees lose leaves. Make sure the fan’s grill is cleaned often during the fall. The air needs to be unobstructed into the fan, and any blockages create performance issues for the whole system.

TIP! A good place to place your compressor unit outside is in a shady spot. Your unit won’t have to work as hard to cool the inside air if the outside air it sucks from is cooler.

You must keep your HVAC systems oil ports lubricated annually. You will notice these ports have a rubber or metal cap covering them. 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! Put outdoor condensers in the shade. If your air conditioner is able to constantly suck in cool air, it won’t have to work overtime to cool your space, which can in turn save you money on your electricity bills.

When you are choosing a location for the outdoor compressor unit, it’s preferable to use a shaded area. When the unit sucks in cooler air, then less work is required to cool it further which in turn boosts the units efficiency.

TIP! Be sure to have twice annual HVAC system checks. This should be done in Fall and Spring to prepare it for the extreme months.

After going through the advice above, you can see that it’s important to worry about keeping HVAC working properly in your home. Without regular maintenance, your unit may experience untimely problems. You are lucky to find this article so you know how to ensure your HVAC system provided proper heating and cooling.
