Solid Advice About Hvac That Can Help Anyone

TIP! If your HVAC system is acting up, take a tour of the house prior to calling a professional. Note which of your rooms are hot and which are cold.

The subject of HVAC systems might strike you as complex when you hear people discussing it. There is indeed lots to think about surrounding this subject. However, information is available that you might not know about, which will make learning about this simple.

TIP! Cover your unit when you are mowing the lawn. Aim the grass clippings in the other direction.

Know the name and type of your HVAC system before looking for a repair person. Know the brand name and model number. It is also helpful to have the maintenance history. This helps make sure the contractor has the information they will need.

Tour your home before calling a contractor. Make note of which rooms are cold and which are hot. This will help the repairman determine what the problem is.

TIP! Be sure to place your outdoor unit in a shady spot to maximize efficiency. You save money this way because the air conditioner is now pulling in cooler air, which is easier to cool further.

Help the outside condenser fan run efficiently by cleaning the coils and fan blades before the summer starts. Except when you do superficial cleaning, you need to always make sure the power is off on the unit. Remove leaves and debris from the outdoor unit.

TIP! Be sure you have the HVAC unit in your home checked about two times every year. The best time of year to have the system checked is right before the weather begins to change.

Make sure clippings don’t get on your outdoor units when your mowing your lawn. Make sure you shoot the clippings in the other direction from the unit. Make sure you move around the unit and blow the leaves away from it while blowing your leaves.

TIP! Once it grows cold outside, turn off your outside condenser unit. This means that you should turn it off to prevent damage if the weather falls under 60 degrees Farenheit.

Check to determine if the fan condenser on your HVAC system is equipped with oil ports, and if it is, be sure to lubricate every year. You’ll see that the ports here are closed with a rubber or metal cap. Your oil should be an SAE 20. This particular oil is very lightweight and it only requires about 10 drops per port.

TIP! If the house is yours or you’re permitted to, replace the windows that are single pane with windows that are double pane. To keep your home cool, investing in double pane windows is a must.

Make sure that you are familiar with your HVAC at all times. It can be hard to get going without motivation, so take all of this information into account as you get started. You’ll be happy you did when things start clicking in your mind!
