TIP! Know the name and type of your HVAC system before looking for a repair person. Learn the brand, model, and if you have it, the maintenance history.

Are you interested in learning more about HVAC? This article is going to take you along a path to where you can learn a lot about this. Take some time to read carefully and you will do just fine.

TIP! If you are having issues with your HVAC, do a tour of your house before you call in help. Make a list of the temperatures in each room and whether they are hot or cold.

Before calling someone to repair your system, make sure you know what kind of HVAC system you actually have. Know what the manufacturer’s name is, which particular model you have and what’s gone on with the unit in the past. This will enable you to give your chosen contractor any information they might need.

TIP! Make certain that you clean your condenser when the weather begins to warm. Be sure to turn the power off first; you don’t want anything to move.

Make a circuit around your home before calling for help with your HVAC. Make a list of the temperatures in each room and whether they are hot or cold. This can help the contractor determine the problem areas quickly and fix the problem easily.

TIP! Do not allow grass clippings to cover the outdoor unit of your HVAC system. Get the grass shot away from your unit.

Cleaning the blades and coils will help the system run better. Always turn the unit off before you do anything to it, including leaning. Additionally, it’s important to clear out leaves and other debris from the outside condenser unit.

TIP! HVAC units may suffer when leaves are falling off the trees. Make sure the fan’s grill is cleaned often during the fall.

If the condenser for your HVAC system is located outside, make sure you clear away any debris that might settle in or around it. You don’t know the amount of stuff that can pile up right after heavy winds or a storm. It can also cause it to overheat.

TIP! If you want to know where you should put an outdoor compressor, you should place it somewhere where there is a lot of shade. When it draws in air for cooling, it will be more efficient because it will not need to work as hard to cool down the air.

The coils and blades on the fans should be cleaned once a year. Turn it off first so you don’t get hurt or break something. Then, remove the grill, then remove the blades and begin the cleaning process of the blades and the unit.

TIP! Make sure your HVAC unit is in the shade. The air in the shade is cooler and can help save on energy costs.

Lubricate your condenser yearly if it has oil ports. The port usually has either a rubber or metal cap on top of it. Use SAE 20 oil that is non-detergent and lightweight, and put 10 drops or fewer in each port, but make sure to avoid overfilling them.

TIP! Make sure your HVAC systems is checked twice a year. Ideally, you should have it looked at in the spring and fall so you know everything is set for the hot and cold months.

HVAC is not difficult to understand when you have the right information. Just take the time to do it right and avoid any issues. Good luck in all things HVAC.
