Helpful Hints For HVAC Novices And Pros

TIP! Check the whole house before you call for help. Figure out which rooms are too cool or warm.

Many people think that the HVAC system is too complicated for them to even learn about. With the right knowledge it can be easy. With this guide you will find that there are some great pieces of advice to follow that makes this easy.

TIP! Before you choose an HVAC contractor, have an idea in your mind of what needs to be done. You can’t get a decent estimate over a telephone, so disregard those numbers and wait until they view your system.

Before you start calling to find someone to fix your unit, make sure you know the type of system that is installed. Know what the manufacturer’s name is, which particular model you have and what’s gone on with the unit in the past. This will let you know that you’re able to give the contractor the information that can help them.

TIP! Help the outside condenser fan run efficiently by cleaning the coils and fan blades before the summer starts. Turn off your power before doing any job like this.

Make sure that you regularly clean debris that might build up on external condenser units. Debris can pile up after a storm, bringing potential damage with it. It will damage the system by overheating.

TIP! If the outside of your home has condenser units, ensure they are constantly cleaned. After a wind or rain storm things may pile up, causing problems with your system.

Try to prevent debris from getting in your HVAC unit. Clean outdoor units often to remove leaves. The air needs to be unobstructed into the fan, and any blockages create performance issues for the whole system.

TIP! Leaves falling from trees can wreak havoc with your HVAC unit. During this time of year, check and clear off the fan grill on your unit on a regular basis.

If you have oil ports as part of the fan condenser, annual lubrication is key. You will see rubber or metal caps covering the ports. Pick out a SAE 20 type of oil because it has no detergent, is lightweight, and you should put around 10 drops in the ports but make it to where they don’t get too full.

TIP! A shady spot is always a good choice for the placement of your outdoor compressor. If the unit is taking in cooler air, the efficiency will be boosted since it will not need to work as hard.

To increase the efficiency of your HVAC unit, be sure to keep it in the shade. As your air conditioner sucks in cool air, little will have to be done to cool it any further, saving you a ton on your energy bills.

TIP! When it gets cold outside, the outdoor condenser unit should be turned off. Avoid damaging the unit by turning it off when the outdoor temperature drops below 60 degrees.

Working with HVAC isn’t too hard if you’re able to work with it and get into it by using the advice you were given above. Without these tips, the subject is much more difficult. Keep them handy for whenever you need them.
