Need HVAC Help? It’s Found In This Article

TIP! Help the outside condenser fan run efficiently by cleaning the coils and fan blades before the summer starts. Turn off your power before doing any job like this.

Though keeping a home’s HVAC system up and running at all times is one of the most fundamental tasks a homeowner has, not everyone knows how to do it well. A smart homeowner recognizes the need to fully understand their HVAC system, and who to contact when the time comes to make those repairs. The following article can assist you.

TIP! Clean any debris that accumulates on an external condenser unit. Excess debris can really affect your system’s quality.

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 make sure that the contractor you hire has all the necessary information.

TIP! Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. Before you do so, shut off the power to ensure that none of the parts will move while you work on it.

Keeping the outside condenser clean of debris and leaves will improve the system’s efficiency. Except when cleaning the outside, turn the unit off when performing any type of maintenance. Remove leaves and debris from the condenser outside.

TIP! Cover your unit when you are mowing the lawn. Now so the grass clippings are shot away from your unit.

If your unit is outdoors, clean them regularly. Debris can pile up after a storm, bringing potential damage with it. Left unchecked, your unit is more likely to break down.

TIP! If you have oil ports as part of the fan condenser, annual lubrication is key. They are usually fitted with a rubber or metal cap.

When you’re trying to cut your grass, don’t cover a unit outside with the clippings. Aim the grass in a different direction from the unit. This is the same if you are using a leaf blower.

TIP! Check your unit at least twice each year. Checks in the spring as well as in autumn are the best.

If your condenser comes with oil ports, you should lubricate it yearly. They generally have a rubber or metal cap on them. Get an oil that is SAE 20 and put about 10 drops into each port, but don’t overfill it.

TIP! When it gets cold outside, the outdoor condenser unit should be turned off. This means that you should turn it off to prevent damage if the weather falls under 60 degrees Farenheit.

The HVAC unit is one of the most important items in your home. Knowing how to maintain them is very important. Luckily you were given this great information so you know what you need to put into all of this.
