Preparation Is Key When It Comes To HVAC

TIP! Know what type of system you currently have before calling someone to fix it. Write down the make, model, and any maintenance history.

Homeowners may find it difficult to know how to care for a failing HVAC system. To avoid creating costly repairs, it is best for any homeowner to get acquainted with this topic. This article provides the information homeowners need to hire help when they need it.

TIP! Before you hire an HVAC contractor, have some sort of idea of the work that needs to be done. A contractor cannot give an accurate estimate without looking at your system.

Know the name and type of your HVAC system before looking for a repair person. 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. Then, you’ll be ready to tell the contractor what they need to know.

TIP! Do not allow grass clippings to cover the outdoor unit of your HVAC system. Make sure you shoot the clippings in the other direction from the unit.

Before selecting a HVAC repairman, know what you need done. A contractor will not be able to give you an accurate price without accurate information about your system. It will be way more hard if you can’t figure out what they need to do. Know the right information ahead of time.

TIP! Your outdoor HVAC units might suffer when your trees lose leaves. During this time of year, check and clear off the fan grill on your unit on a regular basis.

Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. For safety, always turn the power off first. Then take off the grill, take the blades out, and gently clean them.

TIP! If there are oil ports on your fan condenser, lubricate it annually. You can easily find the ports as they have a rubber or metal cap.

Don’t let your outdoor HVAC units get smothered with clippings anytime you mow the yard. Make certain the debris goes away from it. Be just as mindful when you blow leaves to not blow them toward your HVAC equipment.

TIP! Have the HVAC system checked twice a year at the least. This should be checked often for debris and malfunctions.

Turn off your outdoor condenser when it becomes cold out. If the outside temp is under 60 degrees, turn the unit off to prevent damage. Doing this keeps your system working well for years and saves you from having to spend money to repair it.

TIP! When colder weather arrives, switch off all outdoor condenser units. To avoid damage, units should be turned off when temperatures are below 60 degrees.

There is absolutely no question, that poor HVAC performance during the hot seasons or frigid winter months can pose a serious threat to a homeowners finances and comfort. If you perform regular maintenance, you are less likely to experience an untimely break down. The tips you just read will help you with whatever comes your way.
