Helpful Hints For HVAC Novices And Pros

TIP! If you struggle with your HVAC, try touring your home before calling a professional. Figure out which rooms are hot and cold.

Are you lost when it comes to finding someone to work on your HVAC unit? This fact can pose a problem when it comes time to handle a household heating or cooling emergency. The good news for you is that you can use the advice presented below to help you figure out how to tackle an HVAC issue.

TIP! Know what work you want done before you select an HVAC contractor. It is going to be hard to get a price estimate on the phone if the current system isn’t something they’ve seen.

When you call an HVAC system for help, you need to be aware of what you need them to do before calling. This is necessary so that they can give you a quote before doing any work. Getting an estimate will be even more difficult if you cannot adequately describe the problem. Having this information handy will make the process much smoother.

TIP! Clean your fan and coils when the weather begins to warm. Always shut the power off before doing any work or cleaning on the unit.

Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. Don’t forget to disconnect the power first. Then take off the grill, take the blades out, and gently clean them.

Don’t get grass clippings on your outside unit. Direct the clippings away from the equipment. Do the same when blowing snow or leaves.

TIP! If the condenser fan has oil parts, then you need to lubricate it at least once per year. The port usually has either a rubber or metal cap on top of it.

Fall is a hard time on HVAC units. When the leaves fall from nearby trees, clean the grill of your fan often. The fan must not have anything in the way so that air can flow into it, and if it is clogged, you’ll have a lot of headaches eventually.

TIP! Equipping your home with a programmable thermostat can be an excellent way to cut utility costs. Programmable thermostats can automatically dial back settings, saving you money.

If the fan condenser on your unit has ports for oil, make sure you lubricate it once a year. You will see rubber or metal caps covering the ports. Use a lightweight, detergent-free SAE 20 oil, putting 10 drops in each port.

TIP! Turn your AC off if no one is at home. When it’s off the house will get hot, but only by a certain amount.

When your HVAC fails, the situation is bad. However, taking the time to research the topic of HVAC systems, any homeowner can avoid the nightmare of dealing with a last minute fix. Heeding the tips in this piece makes handling emergencies fast and easily much more doable.
