What You Need To Learn Before Calling An HVAC Tech For Help

TIP! Be aware of the type of system that is installed in your home prior to calling a contractor to fix it. Know what the manufacturer’s name is, which particular model you have and what’s gone on with the unit in the past.

Although many people have an interest in learning about their HVAC, many believe it is too difficult to handle. This need not be the case. This can be made easier with the following advice.

TIP! Before you ever begin looking for an HVAC contractor, first consider the entire job that you’ll need completed. They won’t be able to offer you a quote if they haven’t seen your system.

Before calling for help, know the system you have. Know what the manufacturer’s name is, which particular model you have and what’s gone on with the unit in the past. If you have to have someone come out to repair the unit, you will be able to help the contractor understand more about what is going on.

TIP! Clean your condenser’s fan blades and coil in the spring. Make sure to turn off the fan’s power first to be safe.

If your HVAC doesn’t seem to be working properly, check things out yourself prior to calling in a technician. Find out which rooms are hot and which are cold. That will help your repairman figure out where the problem is, and how he can fix it easily and quickly.

Fan Blades

TIP! If your condenser comes with oil ports, you should lubricate it yearly. You’ll find these ports are covered with a metal or rubber cap.

By the end of spring, the fan blades and coils of your condenser should be thoroughly cleaned, so operation can proceed with greater efficiency. Before you do clean the coils and fan blades, always take the precaution of turning off all power to the unit. Take away all of the debris as well.

TIP! If the current location of your HVAC unit outside isn’t working, try having it moved to an area with more shade. The air in the shade is cooler and can help save on energy costs.

Be sure to clean external condenser units regularly. Leaves and debris can accumulate quickly, particularly following storms, and that can cause problems for your system. If you do not, the unit may get too hot and cause additional problems.

TIP! If the house is yours or you’re permitted to, replace the windows that are single pane with windows that are double pane. Try to insulate your windows to prevent air from being lost.

When spring rolls around, give the condenser fan blades and coils a good clean. Before you begin cleaning the unit, make sure that it is unplugged. Next, pop the grill off, put the blades out and start to gently clean them along with the unit.

TIP! Have a smart thermostat installed. Turning down the thermostat around 10 percent for 8 hours per day can give you a 10 percent savings using the programmable thermostat.

It isn’t really hard to work with HVAC especially since you have the right information. Of course, this will be a more hand-on learning experience once you start working with the HVAC system. Begin now to start doing well!
