Expert Tips And Tricks For HVAC Success

TIP! Always make sure you are up-to-date about your HVAC unit. Get the brand, model name, and if you can you should get the maintenance history out.

Nobody wants to come home and find that their air conditioning or heating unit is not functioning properly. Taking care of your home’s HVAC system is vital to keeping your environment comfortable. Continue reading for some helpful HVAC tips.

TIP! If you are having issues with your HVAC, do a tour of your house before you call in help. Notice the temperature in each room.

Prior to putting in a service call on your HVAC, be able to identify it. Know what the manufacturer’s name is, which particular model you have and what’s gone on with the unit in the past. This helps make sure the contractor has the information they will need.

TIP! Each spring, clean the fan blades and coils on your condenser. Before you do so, shut off the power to ensure that none of the parts will move while you work on it.

Be sure to clean external condenser units regularly. You never know when things can pile up, especially after a windy or rainy storm, and that can throw a wrench in your system. It may even overheat, which can ruin your system.

TIP! Cover your unit when you are mowing the lawn. Make sure you shoot the clippings in the other direction from the unit.

Lubricate your fan condenser at least once a year. These ports are typically covered with caps made of metal or rubber. Put 10 drops of lightweight, non-detergent SAE oil in each port. Be careful not to use too much.

TIP! Your HVAC unit may suffer when trees start to lose their leaves. When you see nearby trees shedding their leaves, clean the fan grill on your unit constantly.

Have your heating and cooling system inspected twice a year. This should happen in the fall and the spring. Even if you do not detect a problem, you can identify and fix any potential problems when you have it checked.

TIP! If you have oil ports as part of the fan condenser, annual lubrication is key. You’ll find these ports are covered with a metal or rubber cap.

Update the windows in your home to double-paned if you own it. Try to insulate your windows to prevent air from being lost. This also helps keep it warm in the winter.

TIP! Be sure to place your outdoor unit in a shady spot to maximize efficiency. It will help you save on your energy bill when you do this.

Use the tips you’ve just read to keep your HVAC system up and running. You never want to arrive back at your house to find that the unit has broken down. It becomes even less fun when you factor in the costs of repairing it. With the great information found in this article, you can prevent this disaster. Remember these tips, and keep your system in tip-top shape.
