Great HVAC Ideas From People Who Know All About It

It seems hard to learn all about HVAC at first. But, spending time reading this piece makes it possible. Keep reading for some great tips on the subject.

TIP! Before you choose someone to do HVAC work, figure out what they need to do for you. You can’t get a decent estimate over a telephone, so disregard those numbers and wait until they view your system.

Don’t hire a contractor until you know a little about what you are facing. It will be hard for a contractor to give you a price estimate over the phone if they have not seen your current system. They also won’t be able to offer you a quote if they don’t have a detailed idea of what you want done. Be sure to find this out ahead of time.

TIP! Clean the fan blades and coils prior to summertime. Always turn the unit off before you do anything to it, including leaning.

If there are condenser units as part of your HVAC system, clean them often as they tend to have lots of debris. Debris can pile up at rates that increase during rainy or windy weather, and this can foul up the inner workings of your system. It may begin to overheat, causing massive damage.

TIP! Be sure to clean the fan blades and coils of the condenser fan. Turn it off first so you don’t get hurt or break something.

Every spring you need to make sure your condenser fan’s coils and blades on the fan part are clean. Turn the power off so nothing moves. Then take off the grill, take the blades out, and gently clean them.

TIP! The operation of your HVAC system can be in danger when the tree leaves begin to fall. During this time of year, check and clear off the fan grill on your unit on a regular basis.

Leaves and debris can damage your system. Cleaning your unit is very important for its effectiveness. The fan needs unobstructed air flow, and if debris is blocking this air flow, then your system could suffer.

TIP! Boost energy efficiency by putting your condenser unit in the shade. It will reduce the temperature of the air going into the unit, meaning that it will not have to work as hard to cool it.

If the fan on your condenser includes oil ports, they must be lubricated annually. You can find these ports covered with rubber or metal caps. Put 10 drops of lightweight, non-detergent SAE oil in each port. Be careful not to use too much.

TIP! You need to have a contractor review your unit twice a year. This should be done in the fall and again in the spring.

If you have an interest in HVAC, the previous information should not have been terribly difficult for you to understand. You should be able to keep the HVAC system functioning properly using the tips you’ve read above. Take these tips to heart, and you should be able to handle whatever comes your way with your HVAC unit.
