Great Ideas About Hvac That Anyone Can Use

TIP! Before calling anyone to repair your system, know what system you have. It is important to understand what model it is and which brand it is.

HVAC systems are often ignored until they break. When the worst happens, the situation is urgent. It can be confusing to understand which company should hire to work on your system. The following article offers suggestions on how to navigate through the whole process.

TIP! Clean the coils and blades in your condenser at the beginning of summer. Always shut the power off before doing any work or cleaning on the unit.

Think about what improvements you want made before picking an HVAC contractor. If you can’t describe the problem, you may not get an accurate quote. It’s even harder if you’re not able to explain what you’ve done. So, know this information in advance.

TIP! If the outside of your home has condenser units, ensure they are constantly cleaned. Excess debris can really affect your system’s quality.

Make sure your condenser fan is in good working order by wiping down the fan blades and the coils. Be sure to turn the power off first; you don’t want anything to move. Then you need to get the grill popped off and get the blades out so you can clean them and your unit gently.

TIP! When spring rolls around, give the condenser fan blades and coils a good clean. First, turn the power off so nothing moves when you’re working with it.

A big mistake that people make is cutting the grass next to the outdoor condenser unit and allowing all of the clippings to blow inside the fan and coil. Have the grass shoot in the opposite direction. The same goes for blowing leaves, so always be careful if you are moving debris near your HVAC devices.

TIP! Be careful when doing yard work that you do not get debris on or in your unit. Make certain the debris goes away from it.

If you have a fan condenser with oil ports, it needs to be lubricated every year. These ports have a metal covering. Sometimes it is rubber. Your oil should be an SAE 20. This particular oil is very lightweight and it only requires about 10 drops per port.

TIP! To boost the efficiency of your HVAC system, you should put your unit in a shady place. This will ensure cool air is sucked in, meaning less cooling must be done by the unit.

You are done reading the article, and now you should be a bit more aware about HVAC systems. If you want to replace or repair your system, you need to find out what you should avoid and look for. Refer back to this article as necessary to make sure that you’re on the right track.
