Easy To Understand Tips And Advice About Hvac

TIP! Before you start calling to find someone to fix your unit, make sure you know the type of system that is installed. Look for the model and brand number.

Not all homeowners are expert HVAC specialists. Sadly, this can be an issue in an urgent situation. The good news for you is that you can use the advice presented below to help you figure out how to tackle an HVAC issue.

TIP! Don’t hire a contractor until you know a little about what you are facing. A contractor will be hard pressed to provide you with an over-the-phone estimate if unfamiliar with your system.

Clean your fan blades and coils each spring to ensure that your condenser fan operates at it’s best. Before you do clean the coils and fan blades, always take the precaution of turning off all power to the unit. Clean the outdoor condenser as well.

TIP! To make sure your condenser fan works properly, keep the fan blades and the coils clean. Make sure your power is off before doing more than cleaning, such as working on the unit.

If the condenser for your HVAC system is located outside, make sure you clear away any debris that might settle in or around it. Things tend to pile up around these units, especially after storms come through, which could cause problems to your system. The whole thing can overheat, causing major problems and possibly an enormous expense for you.

TIP! Every spring you should clean the coils and fan blades on your condenser fan. First, the power should be turned off so things don’t move as you work.

Don’t let your outdoor HVAC units get smothered with clippings anytime you mow the yard. When you work with your lawn mower, make sure it spits the grass to the side opposite of your unit. This includes grass clippings and leaves.

TIP! Get your HVAC unit serviced two times per year. It’s best to have it checked before you turn it on for the summer and again for the winter.

If your fan condenser has oil ports, you must lubricate it once per year. You’ll find these ports are covered with a metal or rubber cap. Use a lightweight oil and do not overfill them.

TIP! Turn off outdoor condenser units when weather turns cold. If you get into temperatures that are less than 60 degrees you need the unit to be shut off so it doesn’t get damaged.

Make certain that an outdoor unit is in the shade. If your unit is sucking in cooler air, it will have less work to do to cool that air as it sends it inside which boosts efficiency.

TIP! Shut off the air conditioning if nobody is home. Turning it off does allow the temperature to rise, but only so far.

A failed HVAC system can be a problem that every homeowner fears. But, with a little of research the problem may not be as big as you expect. By keeping the above tips and tricks handy, any homeowner can have what it takes to solve such issues promptly and affordably.
