Looking For Tips About Hvac? You’ve Come To The Right Place!

TIP! If your HVAC system is acting up, take a tour of the house prior to calling a professional. Make a list of the temperatures in each room and whether they are hot or cold.

Many people don’t even think about their HVAC until there is an issue. When it happens, it can be traumatic. It is sometimes tricky to find the right individual to fix a failing system. Simply continue reading to learn more about how to go about doing this.

TIP! Prior to choosing an HVAC customer, try to have an idea of what you want done. It will be difficult for an HVAC contractor to provide you with an estimate on the phone without knowing what your current setup is.

Know the name and type of your HVAC system before looking for a repair person. Know the model and brand and find it’s maintenance history, if possible. That way you can provide the contractor with all the necessary information.

TIP! Every spring you should clean the coils and fan blades on your condenser fan. First, turn off the power so that nothing will move as you are working on it.

If you have units that are condensers outside of the home, keep them free of debris. You don’t know when things are going to pile up, like right after it’s windy or rains, and that can ruin your system. It can cause your system to malfunction by overheating.

TIP! Fall is a hard time on HVAC units. When you notice your trees shedding, frequently clean your unit’s fan grill.

When you are cutting the grass, be sure not to cover your outdoor units with clippings. Instead, make sure that the grass is shooting in the opposite direction. This is the same if you are using a leaf blower.

TIP! Check to determine if the fan condenser on your HVAC system is equipped with oil ports, and if it is, be sure to lubricate every year. The port usually has either a rubber or metal cap on top of it.

Lubricate the oil ports on your condenser once each year. You’ll see that the ports here are closed with a rubber or metal cap. Buy an SAE 20 product that is lightweight, and then put no more than ten drops into the ports.

TIP! If possible, put your HVAC in a shaded area if it is outside. As you get your air conditioner to suck in cool air it won’t have to do too much work to cool it which saves you some money.

Make certain that an outdoor unit is in the shade. When the unit sucks in cooler air, then less work is required to cool it further which in turn boosts the units efficiency.

TIP! If you own your own home or have permission from your landlord, replace your single pane windows with double paned versions. Double pane windows will allow you to use less air during the summer because cooler air will stay in your house.

Make sure your HVAC systems is checked twice a year. The best times to have the system checked is spring and fall, so you are sure everything is running at peak performance before the heating and cooling seasons. Even if everything seems okay, it doesn’t hurt to check things out.

TIP! Get your HVAC unit serviced yearly. Make sure the person takes a look at the motor and examines the levels of freon.

Hopefully, you now understand more about HVAC systems in general. Whether you need repairs on your existing system or need a new one altogether, you should be more aware of what to search for. Keep the information above in your mind so you can find a good HVAC system.
