How To Get Your HVAC To Work For You

TIP! Before you start calling to find someone to fix your unit, make sure you know the type of system that is installed. Find out the brand and model and, if possible, dig out the maintenance history.

The comfort of one’s home depends on a properly functioning HVAC system. Without the cool air during summer or the warm air during winter, life is much less comfortable. But, it can change fast if you have an HVAC emergency. You must learn how to properly maintain your HVAC, and the following article has some basic info for you.

TIP! Before contacting a repair service, do a short tour of the entire home. Know what part of the house is cold and which is hot.

Before choosing an HVAC contractor, think of what you wish to have done. Discussing the problem is simplified if you understand what has happened with the unit. If you are unable to explain the work that needs to be taken care of, the conversation will be even less fruitful. So, know this information in advance.

TIP! What do you need done? Know this before calling a contractor. They won’t be able to offer you a quote if they haven’t seen your system.

Clean the fan blades and coils prior to summertime. Before you clean the surface, be sure to turn off the power. Clean off any leaves or debris from your external condenser unit.

TIP! To make sure your condenser fan works properly, keep the fan blades and the coils clean. Shut off power before working or cleaning your system.

Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. First, turn off the power so that nothing will move as you are working on it. Then, remove the grill, then remove the blades and begin the cleaning process of the blades and the unit.

TIP! If you have units that are condensers outside of the home, keep them free of debris. Things pile up after storms and damage your system.

Do not allow grass clippings to cover the outdoor unit of your HVAC system. Have the grass shoot in the opposite direction. This also applies when you blow leaves, so be very careful near your exterior HVAC units when you move debris.

TIP! Make sure your condenser fan is in good working order by wiping down the fan blades and the coils. For safety, always turn the power off first.

You need to lubricate parts of your fan condenser. The port usually has either a rubber or metal cap on top of it. Put about ten drops or less of a good non-detergent SAE 20 oil into each port.

TIP! A shady spot is always a good choice for the placement of your outdoor compressor. When your unit is bringing in cool air, it will not have to work as hard to cool the air as it moves it inside, boosting efficiency.

Now that you have the information from the above article, it is easy to see the importance of keeping your HVAC system well maintained. You can be in a lot of trouble if you have a poor running HVAC. With this advice in mind, you are ready to care for your system.
