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

HVAC sounds like a complicated topic. There is a great deal of information to absorb. Lucky for the average homeowner, the internet has plenty of information on the subject.

TIP! Think about what improvements you want made before picking an HVAC contractor. It’s hard to get an estimate since they haven’t look at your system.

Before you start calling to find someone to fix your unit, make sure you know the type of system that is installed. Get the brand, model name, and if you can you should get the maintenance history out. Your contractor will appreciate this information.

TIP! Help the outside condenser fan run efficiently by cleaning the coils and fan blades before the summer starts. The power to the unit should be removed before you begin any maintenance, even cleaning.

Know what work you want done before you select an HVAC contractor. It’s hard to get an estimate since they haven’t look at your system. If you do not know what you want, the process can become tedious, especially over the phone. Know the right information ahead of time.

TIP! If your unit is outdoors, clean them regularly. Excess debris can really affect your system’s quality.

If the condenser for your HVAC system is located outside, make sure you clear away any debris that might settle in or around it. Leaves, twigs and other troublesome objects can accumulate, particularly after very windy weather, and this will wreak havoc on your system. The whole thing can overheat, causing major problems and possibly an enormous expense for you.

TIP! When spring rolls around, give the condenser fan blades and coils a good clean. Before you do anything, however, turn the power off.

Don’t let grass clippings pile up against your outdoor condenser. Direct the clippings away from the equipment. This also applies when you blow leaves, so be very careful near your exterior HVAC units when you move debris.

TIP! Keep your outdoor units free of debris when you are mowing the lawn. Aim your grass cuttings in a direction away from your unit.

When the trees are losing their leaves, your HVAC unit can suffer. Frequently clean the fan grill when trees are shedding leaves. If your fan is obstructed, it can keep your system from working properly.

TIP! When colder weather arrives, switch off all outdoor condenser units. If temps go below 60 you run the risk of damaging a unit that remains on.

This article was written to help make you comfortable and familiar with the average HVAC system. Once you are motivated to learn, it’s easier to get started, so make sure you take this into consideration before you begin. You will be happy you found this article.
