Simple Advice To Give You Complete HVAC Knowledge

TIP! Before calling anyone to repair your system, know what system you have. Write down what brand your system is along with the model number and, if they’re available, maintenance records.

The HVAC system you have in your house is not something you know about until it no longer works. Of course then it becomes extremely important to fix. Finding someone to repair your existing system or install a new one can be tricky. The tips here will ensure you have no issues with the process.

TIP! Keep outside condenser fans running smoothly by cleaning fan blades and coils before the summer begins. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit.

Before calling someone to repair your system, make sure you know what kind of HVAC system you actually have. Find out the brand and model and, if possible, dig out the maintenance history. This helps make sure the contractor has the information they will need.

TIP! Be sure to clean the fan blades and coils of the condenser fan. Turn it off first so you don’t get hurt or break something.

Clean the fan blades and coils prior to summertime. The power to the unit should be removed before you begin any maintenance, even cleaning. Clean the outside of your condenser unit regularly.

TIP! If the fan on your condenser includes oil ports, they must be lubricated annually. You will see rubber or metal caps covering the ports.

If you have units that are condensers outside of the home, keep them free of debris. Wind can pile up all sorts of debris against its grill. If you do not, the unit may get too hot and cause additional problems.

TIP! When you are choosing a location for the outdoor compressor unit, it’s preferable to use a shaded area. The cooler the air that the unit is able to access, the less work it has to perform.

Make sure your condenser fan is in good working order by wiping down the fan blades and the coils. First, turn off the power so that nothing will move as you are working on it. After you have turned the power off, you simply remove the grill and the blades to perform a gentle cleansing.

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

The operation of your HVAC system can be in danger when the tree leaves begin to fall. Make sure you clean out your fan grill often once nearby trees start shedding their leaves. You can head off future problems that can be caused by blockages by making sure there is a free flow of air to your fan.

TIP! Have your HVAC serviced at least yearly. This should happen in the fall and the spring.

This article has given you some great tips about HVAC systems that you may not have been familiar with before. No matter what happens in the future, you’ll be prepared. Refer back to this article as necessary to make sure that you’re on the right track.
