Easy To Understand Tips And Advice About Hvac

TIP! Don’t hire a contractor until you know a little about what you are facing. It’s hard for these contractors to give phone estimates without seeing the current system you have.

You may be confused by all the choices you see when shopping for an HVAC system. How will you know what kind of system you should buy? How big? What features will you want? There are new items coming along daily, making the situation hard. If this sounds like you, continue reading to learn what you need to know about getting the perfect system for your home or business.

TIP! Your outdoor HVAC units might suffer when your trees lose leaves. Make sure the fan’s grill is cleaned often during the fall.

Before selecting a HVAC repairman, know what you need done. It is going to be hard to get a price estimate on the phone if the current system isn’t something they’ve seen. It will be even harder if you cannot explain what you have done. Learn this information to start with.

TIP! When selecting a location for an outdoor compressor, opt for a shady area, if possible. The unit will operate more efficiently to cool your home if the intake air is cooler to begin with.

Clean the fan blades and coils prior to summertime. Always shut off all power to your unit for any work beyond superficial cleaning. Remove leaves and debris from the condenser outside.

TIP! Be sure you have the HVAC unit in your home checked about two times every year. This should be checked often for debris and malfunctions.

Make sure that you do not cover your outdoor components with grass clippings when you are trimming the grass. Aim your grass cuttings in a direction away from your unit. Be just as mindful when you blow leaves to not blow them toward your HVAC equipment.

TIP! When it gets cold outside, turn off the outdoor condensers. If temps go below 60 you run the risk of damaging a unit that remains on.

Lubricate your condenser yearly if it has oil ports. These ports are typically covered with caps made of metal or rubber. Pick a type of SAE 20 oil that is non-detergent and lightweight. Place 10 or less drops into every port to avoid overfilling.

TIP! Regularly having your HVAC system serviced can help keep your heating and cooling bills down. The service will include motor inspection, oiling of moving parts, and a freon level check.

You need to have a contractor review your unit twice a year. Ideally, you should have it looked at in the spring and fall so you know everything is set for the hot and cold months. Even if everything seems okay, it doesn’t hurt to check things out.

TIP! Sometimes air conditioners get iced up. The drain line also occasionally freezes, which can be misdiagnosed as a plumbing leak.

You may feel intimidated by the options available when shopping for an HVAC. Using the advice from our experts will make the decision easier. If you’ve got the time, review the tips above one more time for sake of clarity. Use the tips to make a more informed decision when it counts.
