Good Solid Advice About Hvac That Anyone Can Use

TIP! Before you start calling to find someone to fix your unit, make sure you know the type of system that is installed. Get information on the make and model, plus if you have information on the history of maintenance, that will help, too.

It is frustrating to have a failing HVAC system when it is super hot or super cold. Learning about the topic means being able to make decisions down the road. Read on for such knowledge.

TIP! Help the outside condenser fan run efficiently by cleaning the coils and fan blades before the summer starts. Except when you do superficial cleaning, you need to always make sure the power is off on the unit.

Before calling anyone to repair your system, know what system you have. Know what the manufacturer’s name is, which particular model you have and what’s gone on with the unit in the past. This will facilitate the process when your contractor asks for this information.

TIP! Be sure to clean external condenser units regularly. You can never tell when things will pile up, especially following rain or wind storms.

If your HVAC system is acting up, take a tour of the house prior to calling a professional. Find out which rooms are hot and which are cold. That will help your repairman figure out where the problem is, and how he can fix it easily and quickly.

TIP! Don’t let grass clippings pile up against your outdoor condenser. Turn your lawnmower in the opposite direction.

If you have condenser units outside your home, be sure to clean out the debris from them often. After a wind or rain storm things may pile up, causing problems with your system. It could get too hot, leading to even more problems.

TIP! Lubricate the oil ports on your condenser once each year. These are usually covered with rubber or metal caps.

Be careful when doing yard work that you do not get debris on or in your unit. Make sure you shoot the clippings in the other direction from the unit. The same goes for blowing leaves, so always be careful if you are moving debris near your HVAC devices.

TIP! If you want to know where you should put an outdoor compressor, you should place it somewhere where there is a lot of shade. The cooler air entering the unit will require less work to get to the proper temperature.

Try to prevent debris from getting in your HVAC unit. Make sure the fan’s grill is cleaned often during the fall. The fan must not have anything in the way so that air can flow into it, and if it is clogged, you’ll have a lot of headaches eventually.

TIP! Put outdoor condensers in the shade. If your air conditioner is able to constantly suck in cool air, it won’t have to work overtime to cool your space, which can in turn save you money on your electricity bills.

Getting help from a HVAC professional might be intimidating. When you start the search armed with good information, it is much simpler and quicker. Ideally, you now know what to do to keep your unit running well.
