Read About How To Get The HVAC Assistance You Need

TIP! Before calling for help, know the system you have. Look for the maintenance history and brand and model.

The HVAC system you have is important to your home, so you can let it go bad. Do you want to understand how to keep it in the best condition? The following article offers lots of great tips.

TIP! Think about what improvements you want made before picking an HVAC contractor. They won’t be able to offer you a quote if they haven’t seen your system.

Before you choose someone to do HVAC work, figure out what they need to do for you. A contractor cannot give an accurate estimate without looking at your system. You need to know how to describe any issues. Be sure to find this out ahead of time.

TIP! Every spring you need to make sure your condenser fan’s coils and blades on the fan part are clean. Turn the power off so nothing moves.

Cleaning the blades and coils will help the system run better. Before you clean the unit, be sure to turn off the power. Additionally, it’s important to clear out leaves and other debris from the outside condenser unit.

TIP! When you mow your lawn, take care that you don’t get grass clippings all over your outdoor unit. Try shooting the clippings away from it.

If the condenser fan has oil parts, then you need to lubricate it at least once per year. These ports have a metal covering. Sometimes it is rubber. Use SAE 20 oil that is non-detergent and lightweight, and put 10 drops or fewer in each port, but make sure to avoid overfilling them.

TIP! Try to prevent debris from getting in your HVAC unit. Clean outdoor units often to remove leaves.

When selecting a location for an outdoor compressor, opt for a shady area, if possible. The cooler the air that the unit is able to access, the less work it has to perform.

TIP! If you have oil ports as part of the fan condenser, annual lubrication is key. You can find these ports covered with rubber or metal caps.

Place your HVAC unit in the shade to boost efficiency. This will help ensure that the AC is pulling in cooler air, reducing the amount of work it has to do and saving you money.

TIP! If you are a home owner, replace whatever single pane windows you have with more efficient double-paned versions. Try to insulate your windows to prevent air from being lost.

As you can see from reading the above article, it is vital that you take good care of your HVAC system to prevent it from going bad. Having an HVAC system repair from serious damage can cost serious cash. You can help prevent overspending by knowing who to hire, what to look for in a unit and what size unit to choose.
