Get Educated About Hvac With These Simple To Follow Tips

TIP! Know what type of system you currently have before calling someone to fix it. Get information on the make and model, plus if you have information on the history of maintenance, that will help, too.

It’s not so difficult to get into HVAC if you know what you’re doing. The following article will be of help if you want to know more about your HVAC unit. Look at this article if you are interested.

TIP! It is important to have some knowledge of your present system and needs before calling a contractor. A contractor will not be able to give you an accurate price without accurate information about your system.

Make a circuit around your home before calling for help with your HVAC. Figure out which rooms feel hot and which feel cold. This can help contractors quickly figure out the issue and how to fix it easily and quickly.

TIP! Outdoor condenser units need to be cleaned regularly. After a wind or rain storm things may pile up, causing problems with your system.

Clean the fan blades and coils prior to summertime. Make sure your power is off before doing more than cleaning, such as working on the unit. Additionally, it’s important to clear out leaves and other debris from the outside condenser unit.

TIP! Each spring it’s time to clean the inside of your condenser unit, including the fan and the sensitive coil. Before you get started, cut the power.

When you mow your lawn, take care that you don’t get grass clippings all over your outdoor unit. Shoot the grass away from the 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! When the leaves start to fall, the HVAC equipment can be harmed. Make certain you are cleaning the fan grill often if trees nearby have leaves that are falling.

If the condenser fan has oil parts, then you need to lubricate it at least once per year. The port usually has either a rubber or metal cap on top of it. 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! When selecting the spot to put the outdoor compressor for your unit, choose somewhere that gets plenty of shade. The cooler the air which goes in, the less work the unit will have to do.

A shady spot is always a good choice for the placement of your outdoor compressor. The cooler air that the unit can suck in, the less work it will need to do to further cool the air.

TIP! Consider getting a programmable thermostat for your AC. It changes the temperature so the system isn’t in use when it’s cooler outside or no one is home.

For maximum efficiency, place outdoor units in a shady spot. As your air conditioner sucks in cool air, little will have to be done to cool it any further, saving you a ton on your energy bills.

TIP! Never allow the temperature in your home to rise to a dangerously high level. Air conditioners really can only cool a home down about 20 degrees Fahrenheit within a reasonable amount of time.

With the right information, an HVAC unit is something anyone can work with. It is worth the investment of your time. Use the guidelines from here to help you along.
