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

TIP! 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.

An HVAC unit is a crucial part of any home. It needs to be properly maintained. HVAC systems that works poorly can cost the homeowner more money in the long run. Here are some great tips to help you begin understanding this important item in your home.

TIP! Check the whole house before you call for help. While you are walking through the house, gauge which rooms are the coolest and which are the warmest.

Before you call someone to help you fix your system, be sure to know what sort of system you have in 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! Be sure to regularly clean debris from external condenser units. Particularly after bad weather, you should inspect your unit.

Before selecting a HVAC repairman, know what you need done. It is going to be hard to get a price estimate on the phone if the current system isn’t something they’ve seen. They also won’t be able to offer you a quote if they don’t have a detailed idea of what you want done. It’s important to know this beforehand.

TIP! Make certain that you clean your condenser when the weather begins to warm. Before you do so, shut off the power to ensure that none of the parts will move while you work on it.

If the fan condenser on your unit has ports for oil, make sure you lubricate it once a year. You’ll find these ports are covered with a metal or rubber cap. Pick a type of SAE 20 oil that is non-detergent and lightweight. Place 10 or less drops into every port to avoid overfilling.

Be sure to place your outdoor unit in a shady spot to maximize efficiency. The unit will have to do less work cooling this air.

TIP! Your HVAC system could suffer when trees begin dropping their leaves. Clean outdoor units often to remove leaves.

To choose a reliable HVAC contractor, the best thing to do is to do your homework on a number of possible firms and check out their reputations. Look at review sites and check with the BBB. Doing all of this will make sure you hire the best company for your HVAC needs.

TIP! Lubricate your fan condenser at least once a year. Such ports tend to have coverings made of rubber or metal.

Hopefully, you have a better idea of how to take care of your HVAC after having read this great article. An HVAC system that is not cared for will cost you with large electricity bills and repair costs. Refer back to these tips to ensure that your HVAC lasts for a very long time.
