Need HVAC Help? It’s Found In This Article

TIP! If your HVAC doesn’t seem to be working properly, check things out yourself prior to calling in a technician. Figure out which rooms are hot and cold.

If you are in need of a new HVAC system, the many choices available might seem confusing. Which system is right for you? Which size is ideal? Which features are important? The number of available options can make the entire process frustrating. Don’t let the options overwhelm you. Instead, use the following tips to narrow your selection and make the right choice.

TIP! Clean the fan blades and coils prior to summertime. Before you do clean the coils and fan blades, always take the precaution of turning off all power to the unit.

Before you start calling to find someone to fix your unit, make sure you know the type of system that is installed. Look for the maintenance history and brand and model. Your contractor will appreciate this information.

Outside Condenser

TIP! If you have oil ports as part of the fan condenser, annual lubrication is key. They generally have a rubber or metal cap on them.

Keeping the outside condenser clean of debris and leaves will improve the system’s efficiency. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit. Also, it is important to clear the outside condenser unit from any debris that maybe trapped inside.

TIP! Get your HVAC unit serviced yearly. During a maintenance visit, professionals can help by inspecting the system’s motor, oil the different moving parts as well as check the system’s freon levels.

Clean the coils on the condenser fan from time to time. For safety, always turn the power off first. Then, take off the grill and get the blades out. Clean everything with care.

Don’t get grass clippings on your outside unit. Aim the grass clippings in the other direction. Also do this when blowing leaves or shoveling snow.

TIP! Don’t allow your home to overheat. Expect an air conditioning unit to drop the temperature down 20 degrees within a short amount of time.

The HVAC unit in your home can become damaged from falling leaves. Frequently clean the fan grill when trees are shedding leaves. Because the fan requires a clear path for air to enter, you may encounter issues with your system if the fan gets blocked up.

TIP! Your friends or family likely have recommendations for a local HVAC specialist. Those who have had a great experience should have no issue giving you this info.

When the weather starts to cool down, make sure you turn off outdoor condenser units. The unit will become damaged if you do not take care of it. This can ensure your unit is working well throughout the years without the cost of repairs.

Hvac System

TIP! Contractor set their own prices; this is why you should get many quotes. If you call around before making a final decision, it can save you a lot of money in the end.

It can be overwhelming to pick out an HVAC system. Luckily, the tips presented here will make that job easier. Refer to these tips as you choose your HVAC system.
