This Article Has Premium Tips For Your HVAC Needs

TIP! Always make sure you are up-to-date about your HVAC unit. Write down the brand and the model and have all maintenance records on hand.

Few things are more frustrating to a homeowner than needing HVAC work during the depths of winter or the hottest days of summer. Learning as much as possible about HVAC before you need help is the best way to locate the right company to repair old equipment or install new. Read on to learn more.

TIP! If your HVAC is giving you problems, tour your home before calling a technician. Jot down the rooms that are hot and the ones that are cold.

Check the whole house before you call for help. Figure out which rooms feel hot and which feel cold. This will help your contractor quickly determine where the issue lies and how to get it fixed quickly and easily.

TIP! Don’t hire a contractor until you know a little about what you are facing. This will make the quote process much easier.

If your unit is outdoors, clean them regularly. Falling leaves and wind or rain may cause debris to reduce the efficiency of your unit. It may begin to overheat, causing massive damage.

TIP! Every spring you should clean the coils and fan blades on your condenser fan. Don’t forget to disconnect the power first.

Each spring it’s time to clean the inside of your condenser unit, including the fan and the sensitive coil. Before you do so, shut off the power to ensure that none of the parts will move while you work on it. Next, pop off the grill, pull out the blades and start cleaning them and the unit itself off gently.

Fall is a hard time on HVAC units. Cleaning your unit is very important for its effectiveness. A blocked unit can quickly become a broken unit.

TIP! It is very important that your HVAC system is serviced two times a year. Most homeowners choose to have their unit inspected during the spring and the fall months.

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. Pick out a SAE 20 type of oil because it has no detergent, is lightweight, and you should put around 10 drops in the ports but make it to where they don’t get too full.

TIP! When it gets cold outside, the outdoor condenser unit should be turned off. If the temperature outside is less than 60ºF, be sure to turn off the unit so that you don’t damage it.

Engaging in HVAC professional services may be overwhelming without proper information. But, it’s not so difficult with good advice. Now, hopefully are feeling prepared to get help as soon as you can when you have a problem with your HVAC systems.
