Excellent Advice About Hvac That You Will Want To Read

TIP! Be aware of the type of system that is installed in your home prior to calling a contractor to fix it. Learn the brand, model, and if you have it, the maintenance history.

Many people do not give their HVAC units a second thought until it quits working. When the worst happens, the situation is urgent. It can be difficult to find a qualified HVAC professional to install a new system or fix the one you have. This article can substitute for experience and help you choose the right company.

TIP! Check the whole house before you call for help. You will be looking to see which of your rooms feel hotter or colder than they should be.

Clean the condenser coils and fan at the beginning of the year to help the unit run efficiently. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit. Take away all of the debris as well.

TIP! Don’t let grass clippings pile up against your outdoor condenser. Make sure you shoot the clippings in the other direction from the unit.

When spring rolls around, give the condenser fan blades and coils a good clean. First, turn the power off so nothing moves when you’re working with it. Remove the grill and carefully clean the blades and surrounding areas.

TIP! As the trees around your home lose leaves, it can cause your HVAC unit trouble. Make sure you clean out your fan grill often once nearby trees start shedding their leaves.

Be careful when doing yard work that you do not get debris on or in your unit. Make sure the grass does not get in your unit. The same should happen if you are blowing leaves, so be especially careful when you are going by your exterior HVAC devices whenever you are moving debris.

TIP! Make sure you have your HVAC system checked at least twice a year. The best times to have the system checked is spring and fall, so you are sure everything is running at peak performance before the heating and cooling seasons.

Fall is a hard time on HVAC units. Clean outdoor units often to remove leaves. The fan needs unobstructed air flow, and if debris is blocking this air flow, then your system could suffer.

TIP! Occasionally, ice will form on your AC. The drain line may also freeze up.

If your condenser comes with oil ports, you should lubricate it yearly. You can easily find the ports as they have a rubber or metal cap. Put 10 drops of lightweight, non-detergent SAE oil in each port. Be careful not to use too much.

TIP! Look online for a/c sizing calculators so you can really understand the unit size needed for your home or room. If you get a unit that is too large, it will cost a lot in energy costs.

Since reading this piece, you have a better education on HVAC systems. If you need to have your existing system repaired or replaced, you will know what to look for and what to avoid. Keep these tips in mind to treat your HVAC system right.
