The Professionals Share Their HVAC Secrets Here

TIP! Before you call someone to help you fix your system, be sure to know what sort of system you have in place. Get information on the make and model, plus if you have information on the history of maintenance, that will help, too.

It can be hard to understand HVAC, but it can be easier with some helpful information. This article will help you if you like this type of thing. If this sounds interesting to you, then continue reading.

TIP! If problems arise with the HVAC system, check the entire house before contacting someone to come for repairs. Determine which rooms are hotter or colder than they should be.

Get all of the details regarding a broken system before calling for repair. Learn the brand, model, and if you have it, the maintenance history. Then, you’ll be ready to tell the contractor what they need to know.

TIP! If the fan on your condenser includes oil ports, they must be lubricated annually. You will notice these ports have a rubber or metal cap covering them.

Before contacting a repair service, do a short tour of the entire home. Notice the temperature in each room. Are some cooler or hotter than others? This gives the repairer a starting point to work from.

TIP! In order for your new unit to be as efficient as possible, or to make older units more efficient, make sure it’s put in a shaded area. This will help ensure that the AC is pulling in cooler air, reducing the amount of work it has to do and saving you money.

Think about what improvements you want made before picking an HVAC contractor. This will make the quote process much easier. It’s even harder if you’re not able to explain what you’ve done. Understand this information beforehand.

Outside Condenser

TIP! Save energy use and money by turning off the air conditioner if there is nobody home. When you turn the air conditioner off, the house may heat up a little but only a certain amount.

Keep outside condenser fans running smoothly by cleaning fan blades and coils before the summer begins. Always turn the unit off before you do anything to it, including leaning. Also, it is important to clear the outside condenser unit from any debris that maybe trapped inside.

TIP! Shop around before hiring an HVAC contractor. Check with the BBB and look for reviews of potential companies online.

Be sure to regularly clean debris from external condenser units. Things pile up after storms and damage your system. The whole thing can overheat, causing major problems and possibly an enormous expense for you.

TIP! Icing up is common in air conditioners. Freezing drain lines are also possible and can be mistaken for leaks.

Each spring, clean the fan blades and coils on your condenser. First, the power should be turned off so things don’t move as you work. Then, take the grill off, pull the blades out, and gently clean them as well as the unit itself.

TIP! Find out how many years an HVAC company has been in business before you hire them. You are more likely to get good service this way.

As you can see, information goes a long way in understanding. Approaching your HVAC system purchase as an educated consumer will help you achieve your desired results. This will put you and your family in the safest position.
