Tons Of Tips And Tricks For HVAC Success

TIP! Prior to putting in a service call on your HVAC, be able to identify it. Get the brand, model name, and if you can you should get the maintenance history out.

The HVAC is something that many people want to understand, but they believe it is too difficult to tackle. With the right knowledge it can be easy. This guide discusses what you need to know to make HVAC a simple subject for you.

TIP! If your HVAC is giving you problems, tour your home before calling a technician. Figure out which rooms feel hot and which feel cold.

Before you start calling to find someone to fix your unit, make sure you know the type of system that is installed. Get the brand, model name, and if you can you should get the maintenance history out. This will help you give the new contractor the necessary information.

TIP! Before you hire an HVAC contractor, have some sort of idea of the work that needs to be 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.

Clean the coils and blades in your condenser at the beginning of summer. Except when you do superficial cleaning, you need to always make sure the power is off on the unit. Also, be sure to clear leaves and debris from your condenser unit.

TIP! Clean the condenser coils and fan at the beginning of the year to help the unit run efficiently. The power to the unit should be removed before you begin any maintenance, even cleaning.

Each spring it’s time to clean the inside of your condenser unit, including the fan and the sensitive coil. First, the power should be turned off so things don’t move as you work. After you have turned the power off, you simply remove the grill and the blades to perform a gentle cleansing.

TIP! When spring rolls around, give the condenser fan blades and coils a good clean. Before you get started, cut the power.

Make sure clippings don’t get on your outdoor units when your mowing your lawn. Make sure the grass does not get in your unit. This includes grass clippings and leaves.

TIP! If you have oil ports as part of the fan condenser, annual lubrication is key. You’ll find these ports are covered with a metal or rubber cap.

As you notice the tress begin to lose their leaves, keep an eye on your outdoor condenser unit. When the leaves fall from nearby trees, clean the grill of your fan often. The fan needs to have an unobstructed path for air to enter the unit, and if it becomes blocked, you will end up with many headaches with the unit.

Hvac System

TIP! If you can, use double-paned windows instead of single-paned ones. Double pane windows will help keep your home cooler in the summer.

Your HVAC system isn’t as complicated as it first appears. Of course, this will be a more hand-on learning experience once you start working with the HVAC system. Start as soon as you can for the best results.
