Turn Yourself Into A Master Of HVAC

TIP! Before you ever begin looking for an HVAC contractor, first consider the entire job that you’ll need completed. A contractor will not be able to give you an accurate price without accurate information about your system.

There is no choice but to keep your HVAC maintained properly. You may be looking for tips on how to make your HVAC system last for years to come. Use the tips below as part of your game plan for keeping your HVAC system in working order for as long as you can.

TIP! When you mow your lawn, take care that you don’t get grass clippings all over your outdoor unit. Aim your grass cuttings in a direction away from your unit.

If problems arise with the HVAC system, check the entire house before contacting someone to come for repairs. Know what part of the house is cold and which is hot. Taking this step aids a contractor in figuring out what the problem is and how to repair it as quickly as possible.

TIP! If you have oil ports as part of the fan condenser, annual lubrication is key. You will see rubber or metal caps covering the ports.

Before you choose someone to do HVAC work, figure out what they need to do for you. It will be hard for a contractor to give you a price estimate over the phone if they have not seen your current system. They need to come look at the unit. Be sure to find this out ahead of time.

TIP! A good place to place your compressor unit outside is in a shady spot. When it draws in air for cooling, it will be more efficient because it will not need to work as hard to cool down the air.

Before the summer you should clean out your condenser fan’s blades and coils. Shut off power before working or cleaning your system. Remove leaves and debris from the condenser outside.

TIP! During cold weather , be sure to turn off outdoor condenser units. This should be done when the temperature drops below 60ºF to avoid damage.

If the condenser for your HVAC system is located outside, make sure you clear away any debris that might settle in or around it. You never know when things can pile up, especially after a windy or rainy storm, and that can throw a wrench in your system. Left unchecked, your unit is more likely to break down.

TIP! You should have your HVAC system inspected at least once, but preferably twice, per year. This inspection will ensure that your unit is working efficiently, including a freon level and motor check, and oiling moving parts.

A big mistake that people make is cutting the grass next to the outdoor condenser unit and allowing all of the clippings to blow inside the fan and coil. Have the grass shoot in the opposite direction. This includes grass clippings and leaves.

TIP! If nobody is home, turn off the AC. The house will only heat up to a certain point.

Maintaining your system is critical. If you don’t do this and your system breaks, the repair bill can be very costly. Don’t let this happen; work on using the advice you were given above.
