The More You Know, The More Of A Master Of HVAC You’ll Be

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

HVAC systems seem to break down just when the weather gets really hot or really cold. Finding the correct company will help you in the long run. You should continue reading if that is your goal.

TIP! Clean your condenser’s fan blades and coil in the spring. First, turn the power off so nothing moves when you’re working with it.

If your HVAC doesn’t seem to be working properly, check things out yourself prior to calling in a technician. Note which rooms are hot and which are cold. This gives the repairer a starting point to work from.

TIP! When the trees are losing their leaves, your HVAC unit can suffer. Make sure you clean out your fan grill often once nearby trees start shedding their leaves.

Clean the debris on your condenser units. Things tend to pile up around these units, especially after storms come through, which could cause problems to your system. Debris like this can cause it to overheat, which could be detrimental to your system.

Grass Clippings

Don’t get grass clippings on your outside unit. Aim the grass clippings in the other direction. Also do this when blowing leaves or shoveling snow.

TIP! When it gets cold outside, it is necessary to turn off outdoor condenser units. When the temperature drops beneath 60 degrees, it’s time to cut off the unit to prevent damage.

If the condenser fan has oil parts, then you need to lubricate it at least once per year. You will notice these ports have a rubber or metal cap covering them. Buy an SAE 20 product that is lightweight, and then put no more than ten drops into the ports.

TIP! To cut energy costs, you should service your cooling and heating system once a year at least. The service will include motor inspection, oiling of moving parts, and a freon level check.

If you are choosing where to place your outdoor compressor device, try to put it in a place where there is plenty of shade. When your unit is bringing in cool air, it will not have to work as hard to cool the air as it moves it inside, boosting efficiency.

TIP! Never let your home reach a dangerously hot temperature. An air conditioner can only cool your home by 20ºF quickly.

Be sure to have twice annual HVAC system checks. It’s best to have it checked before you turn it on for the summer and again for the winter. Even if you don’t think anything’s wrong, it’s still worth an inspection.

TIP! Shop around before hiring an HVAC contractor. You may also want to check with the BBB for information.

Getting an HVAC professional is vital to your installation process. But, with the right tips, you will know how to find a professional you can trust. With the information given, you will hopefully be prepared now.
