Expert Tips And Tricks For HVAC Success

TIP! Know what type of system you currently have before calling someone to fix it. Get the brand, model name, and if you can you should get the maintenance history out.

Needing service on an HVAC system during cold or hot days is a serious frustration. Learning as much as possible about HVAC before you need help is the best way to locate the right company to repair old equipment or install new. Read this article to learn more.

TIP! If your HVAC doesn’t seem to be working properly, check things out yourself prior to calling in a technician. Notice the temperature in each room.

Be aware of the type of system that is installed in your home prior to calling a contractor to fix it. It is important to understand what model it is and which brand it is. Also, if it has been serviced before, you should have that information handy. This helps make sure the contractor has the information they will need.

TIP! It is important to have some knowledge of your present system and needs before calling a contractor. Discussing the problem is simplified if you understand what has happened with the unit.

Clean the fan blades and coils in your condenser each spring. Turn it off first so you don’t get hurt or break something. Remove the grill and carefully clean the blades and surrounding areas.

TIP! Every spring you need to make sure your condenser fan’s coils and blades on the fan part are clean. Start by turning off the power to avoid having anything move when you work on it.

Lubricate your fan condenser at least once a year. You can easily find the ports as they have a rubber or metal cap. Pick out a SAE 20 type of oil because it has no detergent, is lightweight, and you should put around 10 drops in the ports but make it to where they don’t get too full.

TIP! HVAC units may suffer when leaves are falling off the trees. When you see nearby trees shedding their leaves, clean the fan grill on your unit constantly.

A shady spot is always a good choice for the placement of your outdoor compressor. If it sucks in cool air, it will need to work less to coll the air inside, which can make it last longer.

TIP! A good place to place your compressor unit outside is in a shady spot. 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.

Put outdoor units in the shade if you are installing them. It will reduce the temperature of the air going into the unit, meaning that it will not have to work as hard to cool it.

TIP! It is very important that your HVAC system is serviced two times 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.

Knowing that your HVAC system needs to be repaired or replaced can be worrisome. It doesn’t need to be that tough. Now, you should feel much more empowered about dealing with issues when they arise.
