TIP! Before calling someone to repair your system, make sure you know what kind of HVAC system you actually have. Look for the maintenance history and brand and model.

HVAC seems a complicated topic at first. But this is not necessarily the way it has to be, if you take the time to peruse this article. The tips that follow will help you with most aspects of HVAC care, maintenance and shopping.

TIP! Before you ever begin looking for an HVAC contractor, first consider the entire job that you’ll need completed. It’s hard to get an estimate since they haven’t look at your system.

Before calling for help, know the system you have. Know what the manufacturer’s name is, which particular model you have and what’s gone on with the unit in the past. The contractor will likely need all of this information.

TIP! To make sure your condenser fan works properly, keep the fan blades and the coils clean. Always make sure you shut off the power before you do any work on the unit other than superficial cleaning.

If your HVAC is giving you problems, tour your home before calling a technician. Make a list of the temperatures in each room and whether they are hot or cold. Taking this step aids a contractor in figuring out what the problem is and how to repair it as quickly as possible.

TIP! Clean the fan blades and coils in your condenser each spring. Shut the power off before you do anything.

What do you need done? Know this before calling a contractor. A contractor will not be able to give you an accurate price without accurate information about your system. It can be harder if you don’t know what’s wrong. Be sure to find this out ahead of time.

Regularly remove debris from outside condenser units. Excess debris can really affect your system’s quality. Overheating may be the result if you don’t.

TIP! Be sure you have the HVAC unit in your home checked about two times every year. This should be done in Fall and Spring to prepare it for the extreme months.

Leaves falling from trees can wreak havoc with your HVAC unit. Frequently clean the fan grill when trees are shedding leaves. A blocked unit can quickly become a broken unit.

TIP! As the temperature outside drops, remember to turn off your outdoor condenser unit. When the temperature drops beneath 60 degrees, it’s time to cut off the unit to prevent damage.

Lubricate the oil ports on your condenser once each year. These ports are often covered by a rubber or metal cap. Choose an oil graded SAE 20, it is non-detergent and lightweight. Place about 10 drops into each of the ports, taking care that it does not overfill.

TIP! Installing a programmable digital thermostat can help save money. You have greater control over the temperature settings with these.

This article has given you the knowledge necessary to get into HVAC. If you use the tips above, it’s pretty easy to get into HVAC. Use these tips wisely, and you can’t go wrong.
