Read The HVAC Advice That Should Not Be Missed

TIP! Before you call someone to help you fix your system, be sure to know what sort of system you have in place. Look for the maintenance history and brand and model.

Many people struggle with the basic concepts of maintaining their HVAC system, even though it is a critical component of their home. Any homeowner can learn the basis of the HVAC. This article will provide you with some guidance.

TIP! Understand what you want before talking to a contractor. It will be hard for a contractor to give you a price estimate over the phone if they have not seen your current system.

Before selecting a HVAC repairman, know what you need done. Providing you with an accurate estimate over the telephone may be difficult to impossible is they can’t see the system you have. It will be even harder if you cannot explain what you have done. Know this stuff ahead of time.

TIP! Clean the coils of your condenser fan each month. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit.

Be sure to clean the fan blades and coils of the condenser fan. First, turn the power off so nothing moves when you’re working with it. Next, pop off the grill, pull out the blades and start cleaning them and the unit itself off gently.

TIP! Clean the debris from outside units often. Particularly after bad weather, you should inspect your unit.

Many homeowners forget to oil their condenser at least once per year, but it is required. You’ll see that the ports here are closed with a rubber or metal cap. Choose a SAE 20 oil whch is lightweight and non-detergent and place 10 drops or less into each port, ensuring it doesn’t overfill.

Make sure your HVAC unit is in the shade. The air in the shade is cooler and can help save on energy costs.

TIP! Keep your outdoor units free of debris when your cutting grass. Make sure you shoot the clippings in the other direction from the unit.

You need to have a contractor review your unit twice a year. The ideal thing to do would be to have it checked out in the fall and spring so you’re able to figure out if everything is ready for the cold and hot months. Even if nothing seems wrong, checking it out can help you find and fix potential issues.

TIP! Make certain that an outdoor unit is in the shade. Your unit won’t have to work as hard to cool the inside air if the outside air it sucks from is cooler.

One thing that substantially contributes to the comfort of a home is ane HVAC unit. But when these systems malfunction, it can be quite frustrating if you do not know the ins and outs of engaging the services of a skilled professional. Use the information you have read throughout the process.
