Make Better Choices Thanks To This HVAC Advice

TIP! If problems arise with the HVAC system, check the entire house before contacting someone to come for repairs. Make a list of the temperatures in each room and whether they are hot or cold.

HVAC tips can seem really complicated to people who don’t have a basic understanding of how the system works. This is because so much information is available on the subject. But, some helpful tips may be all that is needed.

TIP! Clean the coils and blades in your condenser at the beginning of summer. Except when cleaning the outside, turn the unit off when performing any type of maintenance.

Prior to putting in a service call on your HVAC, be able to identify it. It is important to understand what model it is and which brand it is. Also, if it has been serviced before, you should have that information handy. This will help you give the new contractor the necessary information.

TIP! 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.

Go through your home before you call HVAC professional. Notice the temperature in each room. Are some cooler or hotter than others? You can then relay this information to the technician so that they can more easily figure out what the problem is.

TIP! Each spring, clean the fan blades and coils on your condenser. First, turn the power off so nothing moves when you’re working with it.

If the outside of your home has condenser units, ensure they are constantly cleaned. You never know when things can pile up, especially after a windy or rainy storm, and that can throw a wrench in your system. Overheating may be the result if you don’t.

TIP! Lubricate your condenser yearly if it has oil ports. The port usually has either a rubber or metal cap on top of it.

Each spring, try cleaning the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan. First, turn off the power so that nothing will move as you are working on it. Pull out each of the blades and clean them one by one.

TIP! If you want things to be more efficient, get new units outside or have your current one moved into the shade. The unit will have to do less work cooling this air.

Many homeowners forget to oil their condenser at least once per year, but it is required. These ports have a metal covering. Sometimes it is rubber. 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! Get your HVAC unit serviced two times per year. Check into it twice a year before you head into the hot and cold months.

After reading this article, you should be somewhat familiar with the HVAC unit. It can be difficult to get into this type of thing unless you’re motivated to do well, so use this advice to get you started in the right direction. When things begin working out for you, you will be pleased you did so.
