Tons Of Tips And Tricks For HVAC Success

TIP! Be aware of the type of system that is installed in your home prior to calling a contractor to fix it. Find out the brand and model and, if possible, dig out the maintenance history.

A HVAC system is great, but only if it works efficiently. In addition to being costly for repairs, they also prevent you from feeling comfortable in your home. It’s generally an all-around good idea to study as much as you can about HVAC maintenance and upkeep. The following tips will provide you some great info to get you started.

TIP! If you’ve been having trouble with an HVAC system, look around your home before calling in people to help. You will be looking to see which of your rooms feel hotter or colder than they should be.

Make a circuit around your home before calling for help with your HVAC. Figure out which rooms feel hot and which feel cold. That knowledge can help the technician figure out what is going on.

TIP! Clean the fan blades and coils prior to summertime. Except when cleaning the outside, turn the unit off when performing any type of maintenance.

Before you choose an HVAC contractor, have an idea in your mind of what needs to be done. It’s hard for these contractors to give phone estimates without seeing the current system you have. If you can’t explain changes you’ve made, the process will be even more difficult. So, know this information in advance.

TIP! Be sure to clean the fan blades and coils of the condenser fan. First, the power should be turned off so things don’t move as you work.

Keep outside condenser fans running smoothly by cleaning fan blades and coils before the summer begins. Before you clean the surface, be sure to turn off the power. Take away all of the debris as well.

TIP! As the leaves are falling off the trees, your HVAC system can really take a hit. When you notice your trees shedding, frequently clean your unit’s fan grill.

If your unit is outdoors, clean them regularly. After a wind or rain storm things may pile up, causing problems with your system. It can cause the unit to overheat and break down.

TIP! If you have oil ports as part of the fan condenser, annual lubrication is key. You can find these ports covered with rubber or metal caps.

Cover your unit when you are mowing the lawn. Direct the clippings away from the equipment. Be just as mindful when you blow leaves to not blow them toward your HVAC equipment.

You need to lubricate parts of your fan condenser. These ports have a metal covering. Sometimes it is rubber. Use a lightweight oil and do not overfill them.

TIP! Your home should not have temperatures that are too hot. Air conditioners really can only cool a home down about 20 degrees Fahrenheit within a reasonable amount of time.

Your home’s HVAC system is critical to providing a comfortable environment in your home. If you aren’t performing regular maintenance, then the environment at home is not going to be a fun place to live. Avoid this by using the tips listed here.
