Here’s Some Required Knowledge For Today’s HVAC Novices

TIP! If your HVAC doesn’t seem to be working properly, check things out yourself prior to calling in a technician. Jot down the rooms that are hot and the ones that are cold.

You must make certain that your HVAC unit is well maintained if you want it to work well. Fixing the system costs a lot, that is why it is best to keep it running right. The following article discusses what you need to know about HVAC systems.

TIP! 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 after a storm, bringing potential damage with it.

If your HVAC doesn’t seem to be working properly, check things out yourself prior to calling in a technician. Figure out which rooms feel hot and which feel cold. That way, the contractor will have an easier time diagnosing the problem and repairing it fast.

TIP! Each spring it’s time to clean the inside of your condenser unit, including the fan and the sensitive coil. Start by turning off the power to avoid having anything move when you work on it.

Clean the coils and blades in your condenser at the beginning of summer. Before you clean the unit, be sure to turn off the power. Additionally, remove leaves and any other debris from the outside condenser unit.

TIP! Be careful when doing yard work that you do not get debris on or in your unit. Shoot the grass away from the unit.

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. Aim the grass clippings in the other direction. The same should happen if you are blowing leaves, so be especially careful when you are going by your exterior HVAC devices whenever you are moving debris.

TIP! Check to determine if the fan condenser on your HVAC system is equipped with oil ports, and if it is, be sure to lubricate every year. You will notice these ports have a rubber or metal cap covering them.

A good place to place your compressor unit outside is in a shady spot. In this way, it will be cooling air that is already somewhat cooled. This saves energy.

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. The cooler the air which goes in, the less work the unit will have to do.

When it gets cold outside, it is necessary to turn off outdoor condenser units. If you get into temperatures that are less than 60 degrees you need the unit to be shut off so it doesn’t get damaged. This simple tip will help keep the system running efficiently for many years to come.

TIP! Check your unit at least twice each year. It’s best to have it checked before you turn it on for the summer and again for the winter.

Your HVAC helps you to stay comfortable in your home. Luckily, these tips will help you avoid expensive repairs. All you have to do is follow them, and you can avoid spending lots of money on preventable damages.
