Secrets The HVAC Experts Don’t Want You To Know

Not many people have an in depth knowledge about HVAC units. This can be problematic when an unexpected emergency occurs. The information you will read will help you tremendously.

TIP! Know what work you want done before you select an HVAC contractor. You might not be able to get a price quote unless you let the contractor see your current system first.

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. It will be more difficult for him to assist you over the phone without the information readily available. Know the right information ahead of time.

TIP! Your outside condenser fan can be helped to run better by you cleaning the fan blades and coils prior to summer starting up. Always shut the power off before doing any work or cleaning on the unit.

To make sure your condenser fan works properly, keep the fan blades and the coils clean. Always make sure you shut off the power before you do any work on the unit other than superficial cleaning. In addition, always remove all debris such as leaves from the outside condenser unit.

TIP! If the fan on your condenser includes oil ports, they must be lubricated annually. You’ll see that the ports here are closed with a rubber or metal cap.

If there are condenser units as part of your HVAC system, clean them often as they tend to have lots of debris. Excess debris can really affect your system’s quality. It can cause the unit to overheat and break down.

TIP! If the current location of your HVAC unit outside isn’t working, try having it moved to an area with more shade. As your air conditioner sucks in cool air, little will have to be done to cool it any further, saving you a ton on your energy bills.

Clean the fan blades and coils in your condenser each spring. First, the power should be turned off so things don’t move as you work. Then, take the grill off, pull the blades out, and gently clean them as well as the unit itself.

TIP! Condenser units for the outdoors should be shut off when it starts to get cold outside. This should be done when the temperature drops below 60ºF to avoid damage.

You need to lubricate parts of your fan condenser. You will see rubber or metal caps covering the ports. Chose SAE 20 oil, which has been proven to be the most effective.

Make certain that an outdoor unit is in the shade. The cooler the air which goes in, the less work the unit will have to do.
