A Basic Guide To All Your HVAC Questions And Needs

TIP! Before calling anyone to repair your system, know what system you have. Take a look at the system or the owner’s manual to find the name and model number.

Your home is only enjoyable when it’s comfortable. That means your HVAC has to be in tip top shape. If you don’t properly care for your unit, it can lead to expensive repairs and an uncomfortable way of living. To learn more about what you need to know to keep your system running, read on.

TIP! If your HVAC doesn’t seem to be working properly, check things out yourself prior to calling in a technician. Figure out which rooms are too cool or warm.

Before you call someone to help you fix your system, be sure to know what sort of system you have in place. You need to know who manufactured the product and the item number. Also, get the maintenance records from your files if you have them. This will help you give the new contractor the necessary information.

TIP! Outdoor condenser units need to be cleaned regularly. You don’t know when things are going to pile up, like right after it’s windy or rains, and that can ruin your system.

Before an HVAC expert comes to your home to do any repair work, walk around the home and check out the temps in every room. Determine which rooms feel cold and which feel hot. The contractor can probably figure out and fix the problem easier.

TIP! 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.

Understand what you want before talking to a contractor. It will be hard for a contractor to give you a price estimate over the phone if they have not seen your current system. It will be more difficult for him to assist you over the phone without the information readily available. So, know this information in advance.

TIP! You need to lubricate parts of your fan condenser. You can find these ports covered with rubber or metal caps.

To make sure your condenser fan works properly, keep the fan blades and the coils clean. Turn off the power if you are going to work on your HVAC system. Also, make sure you remove any debris or leaves from the condenser unit outside.

TIP! If you want to know where you should put an outdoor compressor, you should place it somewhere where there is a lot of shade. The cooler air entering the unit will require less work to get to the proper temperature.

Make sure your condenser fan is in good working order by wiping down the fan blades and the coils. Make sure to turn off the fan’s power first to be safe. Next, pop off the grill, pull out the blades and start cleaning them and the unit itself off gently.

TIP! Boost energy efficiency by putting your condenser unit in the shade. You save money this way because the air conditioner is now pulling in cooler air, which is easier to cool further.

You should now have a better idea of how to keep that HVAC unit running smoothly. Paying close attention to maintenance will help you avoid problems. Apply these tips so that you can keep it functioning properly.
