Great Advice That You May Not Know Regarding HVAC Equipment

TIP! Tour your home before calling a contractor. Make a list of the rooms which are comfortable and which just aren’t.

A quality HVAC system is important for your home. The best feeling is when your home is hot or cool enough when you’re dealing with certain seasons. However, this can become a nightmare quickly if the HVAC system in your home fails. Proper HVAC maintenance is important, and the following article will give the necessary information to do that.

TIP! Before choosing a HVAC company find out what the company offers. Discussing the problem is simplified if you understand what has happened with the unit.

Before calling for help, know the system you have. Know the model and brand and find it’s maintenance history, if possible. That way you can provide the contractor with all the necessary information.

TIP! Each spring it’s time to clean the inside of your condenser unit, including the fan and the sensitive coil. Don’t forget to disconnect the power first.

If your HVAC doesn’t seem to be working properly, check things out yourself prior to calling in a technician. Know what part of the house is cold and which is hot. This will help the repairman determine what the problem is.

Clean your outdoor condensers often. The dirt could pile up and harm your system. It can get overheated, which will cause problems with the whole system.

TIP! You want to put the outdoor compressor device in a shaded area. The unit will operate more efficiently to cool your home if the intake air is cooler to begin with.

Each spring, try cleaning the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan. Start by turning off the power to avoid having anything move when you work on it. Then, take the grill off, pull the blades out, and gently clean them as well as the unit itself.

TIP! Your system should be checked twice a year. The best times to have the system checked is spring and fall, so you are sure everything is running at peak performance before the heating and cooling seasons.

If you have oil ports as part of the fan condenser, annual lubrication is key. Most of these ports have some sort of protective cap covering them. Choose an oil graded SAE 20, it is non-detergent and lightweight. Place about 10 drops into each of the ports, taking care that it does not overfill.

TIP! If you are a home owner, replace whatever single pane windows you have with more efficient double-paned versions. You can reduce your energy costs from energy leaking out through your windows by installing window that are double-paned.

A good place to place your compressor unit outside is in a shady spot. The cooler air that the unit can suck in, the less work it will need to do to further cool the air.

TIP! Keep your air conditioner off when people aren’t home to save you money. Turning it off does allow the temperature to rise, but only so far.
