Great Advice That You May Not Know Regarding HVAC Equipment

TIP! Check out the system that you have before you call a professional. Look for the maintenance history and brand and model.

Your HVAC system will help you keep your home comfy all year. Most homes come with an HVAC unit, but over the years, they may need to be repaired or replaced. Understanding the different ways to take care of your HVAC unit can ensure you’re not throwing your money away. The following tips can prove useful.

TIP! Understand what you want before talking to a contractor. A contractor will be hard pressed to provide you with an over-the-phone estimate if unfamiliar with your system.

If you are having issues with your HVAC, do a tour of your house before you call in help. Pay attention to which areas of the house are warm and which ones are cool. If you do this, it will be a great help to the future contractor, who will now be able to quickly locate the problem issue.

TIP! By the end of spring, the fan blades and coils of your condenser should be thoroughly cleaned, so operation can proceed with greater efficiency. Always make sure you shut off the power before you do any work on the unit other than superficial cleaning.

Before choosing an HVAC contractor, think of what you wish to have done. You can’t get a decent estimate over a telephone, so disregard those numbers and wait until they view your system. Getting an estimate will be even more difficult if you cannot adequately describe the problem. So, you should know this beforehand.

TIP! Make sure that you regularly clean debris that might build up on external condenser units. Debris can pile up at rates that increase during rainy or windy weather, and this can foul up the inner workings of your system.

Cleaning the blades and coils will help the system run better. Always make sure you shut off the power before you do any work on the unit other than superficial cleaning. The outside condenser unit should be kept free of leaves and other debris.

TIP! Fall is a hard time on HVAC units. Make sure the unit’s fan grill is cleaned frequently when the leaves begin to fall.

Make sure clippings don’t get on your outdoor units when your mowing your lawn. Get the grass shot away from your unit. This same tip applies when you are blowing fallen leaves around the yard. Grass and leaves pose a serious problem for the internal functioning of your unit.

TIP! You must keep your HVAC systems oil ports lubricated annually. The port usually has either a rubber or metal cap on top of it.

Your HVAC system could suffer when trees begin dropping their leaves. During this time of year, check and clear off the fan grill on your unit on a regular basis. Otherwise, the unit will have to work unnecessarily hard.

TIP! If you need to decide the best place to put your outdoor compressor unit, consider putting it in a location that is in the shade. Your unit won’t have to work as hard to cool the inside air if the outside air it sucks from is cooler.

A heating and cooling system helps your house remain comfortable year round. When your system needs to be replaced or repaired, remember these helpful tips. You will make better choices and have a great system.
