Techniques To Help You Find HVAC Success

TIP! Before calling for help, know the system you have. Write down the make, model, and any maintenance history.

Keeping your home’s HVAC system running at its optimal performance is a task most homeowners should do, but not everybody knows how to accomplish that. Learning the ins and outs of choosing an HVAC professional to maintain or repair your system is a wise move for any smart homeowner. This article will be of great help.

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

Before you contact people to assist you in getting your system fixed, know what kind of system you’re working with in the first place. Write down what brand your system is along with the model number and, if they’re available, maintenance records. This will enable you to give your chosen contractor any information they might need.

TIP! Know what you need before you hire a contractor. If you can’t describe the problem, you may not get an accurate quote.

If your HVAC system is acting up, take a tour of the house prior to calling a professional. Determine which rooms feel cold and which feel hot. Give this information to your contractor when they arrive.

TIP! Clean your fan and coils when the weather begins to warm. Turn off the power if you are going to work on your HVAC system.

Clean the coils and blades in your condenser at the beginning of summer. Before you clean the surface, be sure to turn off the power. Leaves and debris can build up inside the unit and cause damage.

TIP! 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 can easily find the ports as they have a rubber or metal cap.

You should clean your condenser fan’s blades and coils every spring. First, turn off the power so that nothing will move as you are working on it. Then, take the grill off, pull the blades out, and gently clean them as well as the unit itself.

TIP! Outdoor condenser units need to be turned off when the weather turns cold. If the outside temp is under 60 degrees, turn the unit off to prevent damage.

The HVAC unit in your home can become damaged from falling leaves. When you see nearby trees shedding their leaves, clean the fan grill on your unit constantly. An obstruction, such as a leaf, prevents the maximum amount of cool air from entering the system.

TIP! To help you pick a good HVAC contractor, be sure to research a number of different companies. You may also want to check with the BBB for information.

There are few things more important to a comfortable home environment than a properly working HVAC system. 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. Fortunately, armed with the information found above, every homeowner can know exactly what to do.
