Learn About Hvac With These Simple To Follow Tips

TIP! Before choosing an HVAC contractor, think of what you wish to have done. A contractor will not be able to give you an accurate price without accurate information about your system.

Not many people have an in depth knowledge about HVAC units. This can be problematic when issues arise. Luckily for those homeowners, there are plenty of reputable HVAC specialists in the local area who are willing to help.

Check out the system that you have before you call a professional. Look for the maintenance history and brand and model. Your contractor will appreciate this information.

TIP! Clean the condenser on your debris regularly. You don’t know the amount of stuff that can pile up right after heavy winds or a storm.

If your condenser units are outisde, make sure any debris is cleaned from them regularly. After a wind or rain storm things may pile up, causing problems with your system. Debris like this can cause it to overheat, which could be detrimental to your system.

TIP! Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. Turn it off first so you don’t get hurt or break something.

Clean the fan blades and coils in your condenser each spring. Before you get started, cut the power. Then, remove the grill, then remove the blades and begin the cleaning process of the blades and the unit.

TIP! As you notice the tress begin to lose their leaves, keep an eye on your outdoor condenser unit. Be sure to clean your fan grill frequently when trees nearby are shedding.

When you cut the grass, don’t cover the outdoor units with their clippings. Have the grass shoot in the opposite direction. This also applies to blowing leaves or moving debris. Just be careful with that exterior HVAC unit.

TIP! If there are oil ports on your fan condenser, lubricate it annually. You can find these ports covered with rubber or metal caps.

Lubricate the oil ports on your condenser once each year. These ports are often covered by a rubber or metal cap. Look for an oil that is lightweight and then put about 10 drops inside the port. You don’t want to put in too much.

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

Have your heating and cooling system inspected twice a year. This should be done in the fall and again in the spring. Whether you know of problems or not, good maintenance will help you to avoid future issues.

TIP! If you own your own home or have permission from your landlord, replace your single pane windows with double paned versions. In warmer months, these windows will help to maintain the cooler inside temperature.

A tarnished HVAC can cause a lot of issues. This process is not as bad as you think though. By using the advice here and keeping it at your side, you can be sure that you’ll know what to do to take care of your issues.
