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

TIP! Before you choose an HVAC contractor, have an idea in your mind of what needs to be done. A contractor will not be able to give you an accurate price without accurate information about your system.

Many people don’t even think about their HVAC until there is an issue. When that occurs, it is then urgent. Finding a contractor that will repair your current system or even install a brand new one is a bit tricky. The tips listed here will help you go through the process.

TIP! To make sure your condenser fan works properly, keep the fan blades and the coils clean. Before you clean the unit, be sure to turn off the power.

When you start making calls to get someone to help with your HVAC system, it’s a good idea to know what system you have before that phone call. Get information on the make and model, plus if you have information on the history of maintenance, that will help, too. In this way, you can be sure your repair person has all vital information.

TIP! If you have condenser units outside your home, be sure to clean out the debris from them often. Leaves, twigs and other troublesome objects can accumulate, particularly after very windy weather, and this will wreak havoc on your system.

Keeping the outside condenser clean of debris and leaves will improve the system’s efficiency. Before you clean the unit, be sure to turn off the power. Also, be sure to clear leaves and debris from your condenser unit.

TIP! Clean your condenser’s fan blades and coil in the spring. Shut the power off before you do anything.

Clean the debris off your outdoor condenser unit. You don’t know when things are going to pile up, like right after it’s windy or rains, and that can ruin your system. This can lead to overheating.

TIP! Find a place that is shaded for your compressor. The cooler air that the unit can suck in, the less work it will need to do to further cool the air.

As the leaves are falling off the trees, your HVAC system can really take a hit. When you see nearby trees shedding their leaves, clean the fan grill on your unit constantly. If your fan is obstructed, it can keep your system from working properly.

TIP! Have your heating and cooling system inspected twice a year. This should be checked often for debris and malfunctions.

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! It is always a good idea to swap out single pane windows for double pane ones. During the summer, the use of double-pane windows will help keep the cool air locked inside of the home.

This article has given you some great tips about HVAC systems that you may not have been familiar with before. You now know where to look, what you are looking for, and what they should be doing when you hire them. Always remember these tips and they’ll continue to serve their purpose in your future.
