An Easy-to-understand Guide To All Your HVAC Questions

TIP! Know the name and type of your HVAC system before looking for a repair person. Know the brand name and model number.

Nobody wishes to get home to see that they have an air conditioner or heater that doesn’t work right. The HVAC system is critical to your quality of life, so maintenance is key. If you’d like to learn more, the following article has some great advice!

TIP! Keep outside condenser fans running smoothly by cleaning fan blades and coils before the summer begins. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit.

Check out the system that you have before you call a professional. You need to know who manufactured the product and the item number. Also, get the maintenance records from your files if you have them. In this way, you can be sure your repair person has all vital information.

TIP! Make certain that you clean your condenser when the weather begins to warm. First, make sure the power is off to ensure nothing moves while you are working.

Clean the coils and blades in your condenser at the beginning of summer. Except when cleaning the outside, turn the unit off when performing any type of maintenance. In addition, always remove all debris such as leaves from the outside condenser unit.

TIP! Keep your outdoor units free of debris when you are mowing the lawn. Have the grass shoot in the opposite direction.

If you have condenser units outside your home, be sure to clean out the debris from them often. Excess debris can really affect your system’s quality. It may begin to overheat, causing massive damage.

TIP! If the fan on your condenser includes oil ports, they must be lubricated annually. A rubber or metal cap is typically placed over such ports.

You must keep your HVAC systems oil ports lubricated annually. The port usually has either a rubber or metal cap on top of it. You should select an SAE 20 oil since it is lightweight and does not contain detergent. Be sure to use just 10 drops or so, or your system may overfill.

Pane Windows

TIP! To boost the efficiency of your HVAC system, you should put your unit in a shady place. This will help you save on your energy bill.

If possible, your single pane windows should be replaced with double-paned ones. During the summer, the use of double-pane windows will help keep the cool air locked inside of the home. This also helps keep it warm in the winter.

TIP! To keep your system running smoothly have your system serviced once a year. This inspection will ensure that your unit is working efficiently, including a freon level and motor check, and oiling moving parts.

Using the preceding tips will help you ensure smooth operation of your HVAC system. You never want to arrive back at your house to find that the unit has broken down. And, trying to figure out how you’re going to pay for repairs is even worse. With these tips, all of this may be prevented. Maintain your system and enjoy the benefits.
