TIP! Before calling for help, know the system you have. Get information on the make and model, plus if you have information on the history of maintenance, that will help, too.

Nothing is worse than your HVAC systems going out on a bitterly cold day or a sweltering hot day. Eventually, you will find yourself in need of a repair or a replacement. It is important that you know a bit about the situation in advance. Read this article to learn more.

TIP! Before selecting a HVAC repairman, know what you need done. It will be difficult for an HVAC contractor to provide you with an estimate on the phone without knowing what your current setup is.

Always make sure you are up-to-date about your HVAC unit. You need to know who manufactured the product and the item number. Also, get the maintenance records from your files if you have them. This information will be helpful to any contractor you hire to repair it.

TIP! Leaves falling from trees can wreak havoc with your HVAC unit. Clean the fan grill often when leaves are falling.

If you are having issues with your HVAC, do a tour of your house before you call in help. Figure out which rooms feel hot and which feel cold. This can help contractors quickly figure out the issue and how to fix it easily and quickly.

TIP! If you have a fan condenser with oil ports, it needs to be lubricated every year. You’ll see that the ports here are closed with a rubber or metal cap.

Don’t hire a contractor until you know a little about what you are facing. If you can’t describe the problem, you may not get an accurate quote. If you do not know what you want, the process can become tedious, especially over the phone. So be aware of this information ahead of time.

Outside Condenser

TIP! Your system should be checked twice a year. Your system should be inspected in Spring and Fall.

In order to keep your outside condenser fan running efficiently, make sure the coils and the fan blades are cleaned before the cooling season begins. Always make sure you shut off the power before you do any work on the unit other than superficial cleaning. In addition, be sure to get rid of any leaves or other debris that may have accumulated on the outside condenser.

TIP! Turn off your outdoor condenser when it’s getting cold. When the temperature drops beneath 60 degrees, it’s time to cut off the unit to prevent damage.

If you have outside condenser units, make sure to regularly clean the debris that builds up. Debris quickly gathers here, even more so if there is a storm. This can cause major issues with your system. It can cause your system to malfunction by overheating.

Getting an HVAC professional is vital to your installation process. With proper knowledge, the process can be made simpler. Now you should be prepared to deal with any issues.
