Get Helpful Tips About Hvac That Are Simple To Understand

TIP! When you start making calls to get someone to help with your HVAC system, it’s a good idea to know what system you have before that phone call. Write down the make, model, and any maintenance history.

Your home can remain comfortable when your HVAC system is properly working. It cools off your home in the summer and keeps it warm in the winter. But, it can change fast if you have an HVAC emergency. Learning about your HVAC system begins with the tips below.

TIP! If you have some problems with the HVAC system, check out your home before calling a contractor. Jot down the rooms that are hot and the ones that are cold.

Get all of the details regarding a broken system before calling for repair. Learn the brand and the model. Then, you’ll be ready to tell the contractor what they need to know.

TIP! Don’t hire a contractor until you know a little about what you are facing. A contractor cannot give an accurate estimate without looking at your system.

Cleaning the blades and coils will help the system run better. Prior to working on or cleaning the unit, be sure to turn off the power. The outside condenser unit should be kept free of leaves and other debris.

TIP! When you’re trying to cut your grass, don’t cover a unit outside with the clippings. Make sure you shoot the clippings in the other direction from the unit.

If there are condenser units as part of your HVAC system, clean them often as they tend to have lots of debris. The dirt could pile up and harm your system. Overheating may be the result if you don’t.

TIP! Some fan condensers may contain oil parts, and if yours does, ensure it is lubricated at least once per year. You can easily find the ports as they have a rubber or metal cap.

Every spring you should clean the coils and fan blades on your condenser fan. Before you begin cleaning the unit, make sure that it is unplugged. Secondly, pop the grill off, take the blades off and clean them as well as the actual unit.

TIP! If possible, put your HVAC in a shaded area if it is outside. Your air conditioner won’t have to work so hard if the air is sucks in is already cool.

Leaves falling from trees can wreak havoc with your HVAC unit. Make certain you are cleaning the fan grill often if trees nearby have leaves that are falling. A blocked unit can quickly become a broken unit.

TIP! If you are a homeowner, or if you can get permission from your landlord, install double-paned windows in place of any single panes in your home. Double pane windows can help minimize how much you use your air conditioner in the summer, because they keep cool air inside the home.

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. 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! When you are away from home, adjust your thermostat to a money saving temperature. The house will only heat to certain level and a decent HVAC system can quickly cool this down once you are home.

Now you know how to ensure your HVAC is working smoothly. If you do not perform the recommended inspection, the result will not be good. However, this article has given you the advice you need to make sure your HVAC system is always running properly.
