Great Advice That You May Not Know Regarding HVAC Equipment

TIP! Before calling for help, know the system you have. It is important to understand what model it is and which brand it is.

The HVAC system you have is important to your home, so you can let it go bad. Do you want to understand how to keep it in the best condition? This article will provide you with the information you seek.

TIP! If problems arise with the HVAC system, check the entire house before contacting someone to come for repairs. Make a list of the temperatures in each room and whether they are hot or cold.

What system do you have? You need this information to tell your contractor. Find out the brand and model and, if possible, dig out the maintenance history. This will facilitate the process when your contractor asks for this information.

TIP! Know what work you want done before you select an HVAC contractor. It’s hard to get an estimate since they haven’t look at your system.

Understand what you want before talking to a contractor. A contractor cannot give an accurate estimate without looking at your system. If you can’t explain changes you’ve made, the process will be even more difficult. You need to know this before you begin.

TIP! Make sure that you regularly clean debris that might build up on external condenser units. Things pile up after storms and damage your system.

Make sure your condenser fan is in good working order by wiping down the fan blades and the coils. First, the power should be turned off so things don’t move as you work. Then, remove the grill, then remove the blades and begin the cleaning process of the blades and the unit.

TIP! When spring rolls around, give the condenser fan blades and coils a good clean. Before you get started, cut the power.

Your outdoor HVAC units might suffer when your trees lose leaves. Make sure you clean out your fan grill often once nearby trees start shedding their leaves. The fan needs unobstructed air flow, and if debris is blocking this air flow, then your system could suffer.

TIP! If you are choosing where to place your outdoor compressor device, try to put it in a place where there is plenty of shade. 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.

You need to lubricate parts of your fan condenser. You’ll find these ports are covered with a metal or rubber cap. Pick a type of SAE 20 oil that is non-detergent and lightweight. Place 10 or less drops into every port to avoid overfilling.

TIP! Get your HVAC unit serviced two times per year. This should be done in Fall and Spring to prepare it for the extreme months.

You absolutely must take proper care of the HVAC unit if you would like to prevent serious damage from occurring. When this unit fails, you will be in a lot of trouble. Following the tips above should help you keep the system in good working order, and find a suitable replacement if it becomes necessary.
