Learn How To Get HVAC Issues Taken Care Of

TIP! Know the name and type of your HVAC system before looking for a repair person. Learn the brand and the model.

A properly running HVAC unit makes home life more pleasant. The heat in the winter and cool air in the summer are very refreshing to come home to. However, this can become a nightmare quickly if the HVAC system in your home fails. Therefore, learning HVAC maintenance is vital.

TIP! Clean the coils of your condenser fan each month. Turn off your power before doing any job like this.

Before you contact people to assist you in getting your system fixed, know what kind of system you’re working with in the first place. Get information on the make and model, plus if you have information on the history of maintenance, that will help, too. This helps make sure the contractor has the information they will need.

TIP! Each spring, clean the fan blades and coils on your condenser. First, make sure the power is off to ensure nothing moves while you are working.

It is important to have some knowledge of your present system and needs before calling a contractor. This is necessary so that they can give you a quote before doing any work. In addition, you need to be able to tell the contractor what you have already tried. So be aware of this information ahead of time.

TIP! Be careful when doing yard work that you do not get debris on or in your unit. Instead, make sure that the grass is shooting in the opposite direction.

Lubricate your fan condenser at least once a year. You will see rubber or metal caps covering the ports. Get an oil that is SAE 20 and put about 10 drops into each port, but don’t overfill it.

TIP! Leaves falling from trees can wreak havoc with your HVAC unit. Make sure the fan’s grill is cleaned often during the fall.

When you are choosing a location for the outdoor compressor unit, it’s preferable to use a shaded area. The cooler air that the unit can suck in, the less work it will need to do to further cool the air.

Put outdoor units in the shade if you are installing them. It will help you save on your energy bill when you do this.

TIP! During cold weather , be sure 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.

Now that you have read the article, you should see how important it is to keep your HVAC system in good working order. If it isn’t maintained properly, it could break. Thankfully, you have the information shared here, so use it.
