Confused About Getting The Right HVAC Help? This Article Will Help!

TIP! Check out the system that you have before you call a professional. Write down the brand and the model and have all maintenance records on hand.

Having an HVAC system helps your home remain comfortable regardless of the weather outside. Though most homes have HVAC systems, some need replacing or repairs. Understanding the different ways to take care of your HVAC unit can ensure you’re not throwing your money away. The tips that follow should help you begin to establish criteria for making the right choice of an HVAC system for your home.

TIP! If your HVAC is giving you problems, tour your home before calling a technician. Jot down the rooms that are hot and the ones that are cold.

Don’t let your outdoor HVAC units get smothered with clippings anytime you mow the yard. Instead, make sure that the grass is shooting in the opposite direction. Also do this when blowing leaves or shoveling snow.

TIP! Know what you need before you hire a contractor. A contractor will be hard pressed to provide you with an over-the-phone estimate if unfamiliar with your system.

The HVAC unit in your home can become damaged from falling leaves. Clean the fan grill often when leaves are falling. An obstruction, such as a leaf, prevents the maximum amount of cool air from entering the system.

TIP! Clean your fan and coils when the weather begins to warm. Except when you do superficial cleaning, you need to always make sure the power is off on the unit.

If the fan condenser on your unit has ports for oil, make sure you lubricate it once a year. Such ports tend to have coverings made of rubber or metal. Buy an SAE 20 product that is lightweight, and then put no more than ten drops into the ports.

TIP! Be sure to clean the fan blades and coils of the condenser fan. Start by turning off the power to avoid having anything move when you work on it.

If you want things to be more efficient, get new units outside or have your current one moved into the shade. As you get your air conditioner to suck in cool air it won’t have to do too much work to cool it which saves you some money.

TIP! Leaves and debris can damage your system. The grill on the fan can become cluttered with debris, which will cause a serious operating deficiency.

Outdoor condenser units need to be turned off when the weather turns cold. If the temperature outside is less than 60ºF, be sure to turn off the unit so that you don’t damage it. This helps your system remain in good working order.

TIP! Lubricate the oil ports on your condenser once each year. They generally have a rubber or metal cap on them.

HVAC systems are the best investments that you can make in your home. When your system needs to be replaced or repaired, remember these helpful tips. This can help you make a solid guess as to what to buy so that you can get a system you’re content with.
