Get Educated About Hvac With These Simple To Follow Tips

TIP! Be aware of the type of system that is installed in your home prior to calling a contractor to fix it. You need to know who manufactured the product and the item number.

The subject of HVAC systems might strike you as complex when you hear people discussing it. There is complicated work going on inside of any HVAC system. That is why serious repairs require trained professionals. That said, there is a wealth of information that will help you to understand all about the subject.

TIP! Know what work you want done before you select an HVAC contractor. You can’t get a decent estimate over a telephone, so disregard those numbers and wait until they view your system.

Before you choose someone to do HVAC work, figure out what they need to do for you. A contractor cannot give an accurate estimate without looking at your system. It’s even harder if you’re not able to explain what you’ve done. Be sure to find this out ahead of time.

TIP! Clean the fan blades and coils prior to summertime. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit.

Leaves and debris can damage your system. At least twice a week, you need to clean the grill of your fan. Your fan needs an unobstructed way to get air inside, and the more blocked up it becomes, the more headaches will develop for you with the system.

TIP! Clean the coils on the condenser fan from time to time. Don’t forget to disconnect the power first.

Check to determine if the fan condenser on your HVAC system is equipped with oil ports, and if it is, be sure to lubricate every year. You will notice these ports have a rubber or metal cap covering them. Use SAE 20 oil that is lightweight and detergent free, and put ten drops or fewer into each one. Make sure not to overfill them.

TIP! Don’t let grass clippings pile up against your outdoor condenser. Aim the grass clippings in the other direction.

Once it grows cold outside, turn off your outside condenser unit. If the temperature outside is less than 60ºF, be sure to turn off the unit so that you don’t damage it. Your system will work longer for you this way.

TIP! If you can choose the place where your outdoor compressor goes, pick a spot with lots of shade. The cooler the air which goes in, the less work the unit will have to do.

Now that you’re done with this article, you know some things about the HVAC that you didn’t know before. Once you are motivated to learn, it’s easier to get started, so make sure you take this into consideration before you begin. Once things begin to click inside your mind, you won’t regret the decision.
