A Basic Guide To All Your HVAC Questions And Needs

TIP! By the end of spring, the fan blades and coils of your condenser should be thoroughly cleaned, so operation can proceed with greater efficiency. Always shut the power off before doing any work or cleaning on the unit.

The HVAC system is a difficult subject for many people. You shouldn’t let this hold you back, though. This guide will help you get the most out of your HVAC unit.

TIP! Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. First, make sure the power is off to ensure nothing moves while you are working.

Be aware of the type of system that is installed in your home prior to calling a contractor to fix it. Look for the maintenance history and brand and model. This will help make sure that the contractor you hire has all the necessary information.

TIP! The operation of your HVAC system can be in danger when the tree leaves begin to fall. When you see nearby trees shedding their leaves, clean the fan grill on your unit constantly.

Tour your home before calling a contractor. Make note of which rooms are cold and which are hot. That knowledge can help the technician figure out what is going on.

TIP! If you have a fan condenser with oil ports, it needs to be lubricated every year. These ports are typically covered with caps made of metal or rubber.

When you call an HVAC system for help, you need to be aware of what you need them to do before calling. It’s hard for these contractors to give phone estimates without seeing the current system you have. It will be even harder if you cannot explain what you have done. So, know this information in advance.

Hvac System

TIP! Check your unit at least twice each year. Generally, you want it done in the fall and the spring.

If there are condenser units as part of your HVAC system, clean them often as they tend to have lots of debris. Your HVAC system may run into problems after storms if it is surrounded by debris. It may begin to overheat, causing massive damage.

When you’re trying to cut your grass, don’t cover a unit outside with the clippings. Try shooting the clippings away from it. This includes grass clippings and leaves.

TIP! If at all possible, install double-paned windows in your home instead of those with a single pane. Having a double pane window helps limit your need for air conditioning during the summer months.

If there are oil ports on your fan condenser, lubricate it annually. These ports are typically covered with caps made of metal or rubber. Your oil should be an SAE 20. This particular oil is very lightweight and it only requires about 10 drops per port.

TIP! To help keep your energy costs down, have your heating and cooling system serviced at least once a year. During the service check, the system motor will be inspected, the moving parts will be oiled and the freon levels will be checked All of these little jobs will add up to big savings in energy use, with the improved efficiency.

Working on HVAC won’t be too difficult if you can implement the advice that you were given in the above article. Without information such as that found above, the topic can be tough to crack. Get going and reap the benefits.
