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

TIP! Always make sure you are up-to-date about your HVAC unit. Write down what brand your system is along with the model number and, if they’re available, maintenance records.

Heating and cooling units can be a great thing, but what do you do when they start to fail? To stop such a situation from becoming a real disaster, it pays to spend some time getting familiar with the topic. These suggestions will benefit you for years to come.

TIP! Cleaning the blades and coils will help the system run better. The power to the unit should be removed before you begin any maintenance, even cleaning.

Before you start calling to find someone to fix your unit, make sure you know the type of system that is installed. You need to know who manufactured the product and the item number. Also, get the maintenance records from your files if you have them. This information will be helpful to any contractor you hire to repair it.

TIP! If there are condenser units as part of your HVAC system, clean them often as they tend to have lots of debris. Excess debris can really affect your system’s quality.

Before selecting a HVAC repairman, know what you need 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. Getting an estimate will be even more difficult if you cannot adequately describe the problem. So, figure out this information before anything else.

Clean the condenser on your debris regularly. Wind can pile up all sorts of debris against its grill. This can lead to overheating.

TIP! Don’t let grass clippings pile up against your outdoor condenser. Make sure the grass does not get in your unit.

When spring rolls around, give the condenser fan blades and coils a good clean. Start by turning off the power to avoid having anything move when you work on it. Then, take off the grill and get the blades out. Clean everything with care.

TIP! You must keep your HVAC systems oil ports lubricated annually. You will notice these ports have a rubber or metal cap covering them.

A big mistake that people make is cutting the grass next to the outdoor condenser unit and allowing all of the clippings to blow inside the fan and coil. When you work with your lawn mower, make sure it spits the grass to the side opposite of your unit. The same goes for when you blow leaves, so make sure your are careful when moving any debris in the vicinity of your HVAC devices.

TIP! Make sure your HVAC unit is in the shade. When your unit sucks in cooler air, then much less is required to cool it further, which saves you money on energy bills.

When a homeowner’s HVAC unit stops working, they could find themselves in a real pickle. The situation can be made easier with this advice. These tips have armed you with all you need to know.
