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

TIP! Get all of the details regarding a broken system before calling for repair. You need to know who manufactured the product and the item number.

When the topic of HVAC comes up, it can seem extremely complicated. This is probably because you don’t have the right information on hand. However, there is much information available that can help make this topic easier to understand.

TIP! Before you ever begin looking for an HVAC contractor, first consider the entire job that you’ll need completed. It will be hard for a contractor to give you a price estimate over the phone if they have not seen your current system.

Be sure to regularly clean debris from external condenser units. You never know when things can pile up, especially after a windy or rainy storm, and that can throw a wrench in your system. It can also cause it to overheat.

TIP! If your unit is outdoors, clean them regularly. Falling leaves and wind or rain may cause debris to reduce the efficiency of your unit.

Every spring you need to make sure your condenser fan’s coils and blades on the fan part are clean. Turn it off first so you don’t get hurt or break something. Remove the grill and carefully clean the blades and surrounding areas.

TIP! During the fall, leaves can gather around your HVAC. When you see nearby trees shedding their leaves, clean the fan grill on your unit constantly.

Keep your outdoor units free of debris when your cutting grass. Make sure the grass does not get in your unit. When blowing leaves, do the same. Always take care when passing your HVAC units while moving leaves, grass or other debris.

TIP! If your condenser comes with oil ports, you should lubricate it yearly. You will notice these ports have a rubber or metal cap covering them.

You need to lubricate parts of your fan condenser. You will notice these ports have a rubber or metal cap covering them. Pick a type of SAE 20 oil that is non-detergent and lightweight. Place 10 or less drops into every port to avoid overfilling.

TIP! If you want things to be more efficient, get new units outside or have your current one moved into the shade. The air in the shade is cooler and can help save on energy costs.

If the current location of your HVAC unit outside isn’t working, try having it moved to an area with more 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! To save money and be more comfortable in your home, install double-paned windows instead of single pane. Having a double pane window helps limit your need for air conditioning during the summer months.

Familiarizing yourself with HVAC technology is hopefully something this article helped you accomplish. It can be difficult to learn this sort of thing without motivation, but if you want to learn, you can. Once things begin to click inside your mind, you won’t regret the decision.
