Don’t Go On Without Reading This Article About HVAC

TIP! Before you choose an HVAC contractor, have an idea in your mind of what needs to be done. A contractor will not be able to give you an accurate price without accurate information about your system.

The HVAC is something that needs to be maintained from time to time. A poorly functioning HVAC system can end up costing the homeowner a lot of money. The following tips will help you care for your HVAC and learn what to do if you eventually need to replace it.

TIP! To make sure your condenser fan works properly, keep the fan blades and the coils clean. Always turn the unit off before you do anything to it, including leaning.

If you have some problems with the HVAC system, check out your home before calling a contractor. Note 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.

TIP! A big mistake that people make is cutting the grass next to the outdoor condenser unit and allowing all of the clippings to blow inside the fan and coil. Shoot the grass away from the unit.

Before choosing a HVAC company find out what the company offers. A contractor will be hard pressed to provide you with an over-the-phone estimate if unfamiliar with your system. If you are unable to explain the work that needs to be taken care of, the conversation will be even less fruitful. So, figure out this information before anything else.

TIP! The operation of your HVAC system can be in danger when the tree leaves begin to fall. Make certain you are cleaning the fan grill often if trees nearby have leaves that are falling.

Leaves falling from trees can wreak havoc with your HVAC unit. Whenever leaves are falling, consistently clean the fan grill. The fan must be unobstructed to work properly, and if it becomes blocked, it could cause your system to break down.

TIP! If you have oil ports as part of the fan condenser, annual lubrication is key. These ports are typically covered with caps made of metal or rubber.

Lubricate your condenser yearly if it has oil ports. Such ports tend to have coverings made of rubber or metal. Get an oil that is SAE 20 and put about 10 drops into each port, but don’t overfill it.

TIP! When selecting the spot to put the outdoor compressor for your unit, choose somewhere that gets plenty of shade. The unit will operate more efficiently to cool your home if the intake air is cooler to begin with.

If you need to decide the best place to put your outdoor compressor unit, consider putting it in a location that is in the shade. In this way, it will be cooling air that is already somewhat cooled. This saves energy.

TIP! Have the HVAC system serviced twice per year. The spring and autumn times are the best time to have it checked.

The suggestions above should help you develop a strategy for keeping your HVAC system in good working order. Avoid costly repairs and downtime with proper maintenance. Use these tips whenever you encounter a problem.
