How To Find Great Success With HVAC

TIP! If your HVAC system us giving you issues, take a look around the house prior to calling a contractor. Figure out which rooms are too cool or warm.

Many people have HVAC systems, but don’t know how to take care of them. Finding a professional to maintain your HVAC unit is a great choice for any homeowner. Continue reading for what you must know.

TIP! Before you ever begin looking for an HVAC contractor, first consider the entire job that you’ll need completed. It will be difficult for an HVAC contractor to provide you with an estimate on the phone without knowing what your current setup is.

If you are having issues with your HVAC, do a tour of your house before you call in help. You will be looking to see which of your rooms feel hotter or colder than they should be. This gives the repairer a starting point to work from.

TIP! Cleaning the blades and coils will help the system run better. Before you do clean the coils and fan blades, always take the precaution of turning off all power to the unit.

If the outside of your home has condenser units, ensure they are constantly cleaned. Things pile up after storms and damage your system. It can cause your system to malfunction by overheating.

TIP! Make sure clippings don’t get on your outdoor units when your mowing your lawn. Make certain the debris goes away from it.

You need to lubricate parts of your fan condenser. These are usually covered with rubber or metal caps. Put 10 drops of lightweight, non-detergent SAE oil in each port. Be careful not to use too much.

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. Most of these ports have some sort of protective cap covering them.

If you want to know where you should put an outdoor compressor, you should place it somewhere where there is a lot of shade. The cooler the air that the unit is able to access, the less work it has to perform.

TIP! If you can choose the place where your outdoor compressor goes, pick a spot with lots of shade. The cooler the air which goes in, the less work the unit will have to do.

Put outdoor condensers in the shade. When the air conditioner pulls in cooler air, it won’t have to do much more to cool it and that will save you a lot of money on energy bills.

TIP! If possible, put your HVAC in a shaded area if it is outside. If the air your machine draws in is already cooler, it will require less energy to regulate before it’s filtered into your home.

Condenser units for the outdoors should be shut off when it starts to get cold outside. If temps go below 60 you run the risk of damaging a unit that remains on. Doing this keeps your system working well for years and saves you from having to spend money to repair it.

TIP! It is very important that your HVAC system is serviced two times a year. Most homeowners choose to have their unit inspected during the spring and the fall months.

An HVAC unit that is working properly can assure the comfort in a home. However, if you don’t hire the right contractor, you can end up frustrated when your system stops working. These suggestions should help you to keep your system running well.
