Read Some Easy Tips For HVAC Advice That Shouldn’t Be Missed

TIP! 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.

If your home has an HVAC within it, then you know just how crucial it is to keep the system up to snuff. An HVAC unit that runs poorly will only end up costing you money on pricey repairs. This article has tips to help you keep your HVAC system running.

TIP! If you are having issues with your HVAC, do a tour of your house before you call in help. Make a list of the rooms which are comfortable and which just aren’t.

What system do you have? You need this information to tell your contractor. Get information on the make and model, plus if you have information on the history of maintenance, that will help, too. This will give contractor’s a better idea of what to expect before they show up, which will help things go more smoothly on arrival.

TIP! Before you choose an HVAC contractor, have an idea in your mind of what needs to be done. Discussing the problem is simplified if you understand what has happened with the unit.

Clean the fan blades and coils prior to summertime. Make sure your power is off before doing more than cleaning, such as working on the unit. Clean off any leaves or debris from your external condenser unit.

TIP! Clean the coils and blades in your condenser at the beginning of summer. Be safe and turn off the power supply before working on your HVAC unit.

Be sure to clean the fan blades and coils of the condenser fan. First, the power should be turned off so things don’t move as you work. Next, pop the grill off, put the blades out and start to gently clean them along with the unit.

TIP! If the outside of your home has condenser units, ensure they are constantly cleaned. After a wind or rain storm things may pile up, causing problems with your HVAC system.

If your condenser comes with oil ports, you should lubricate it yearly. You can find these ports covered with rubber or metal caps. Your oil should be an SAE 20. This particular oil is very lightweight and it only requires about 10 drops per port.

TIP! Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. Shut the power off before you do anything.

If you need to decide the best place to put your outdoor compressor unit, consider putting it in a location that is in the shade. If it sucks in cool air, it will need to work less to coll the air inside, which can make it last longer.

TIP! If possible, put your HVAC in a shaded area if it is outside. This will help you save on your energy bill.

Hopefully, you now feel a little more confident in your HVAC knowledge. It can become very expensive to put off maintenance of your system. Keep these tips in mind as you strive to keep your HVAC unit in the best shape possible.
