How To Make HVAC Equipment Purchases Easier

TIP! If your HVAC is giving you problems, tour your home before calling a technician. Know what part of the house is cold and which is hot.

The level of comfort experienced within a home has a great deal to do with the temperature that it maintains. To ensure that this continues to happen, it’s important to care for the system properly. If you don’t care for your HVAC, then your repair costs can mount while your living conditions deteriorate. Here are some great tips to help you keep your HVAC system running smoothly.

TIP! Think about what improvements you want made before picking an HVAC contractor. A contractor will be hard pressed to provide you with an over-the-phone estimate if unfamiliar with your system.

Prior to choosing an HVAC customer, try to have an idea of what you want done. 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. So, have this information ready.

TIP! If your fan condenser has oil ports, you must lubricate it once per year. You can find these ports covered with rubber or metal caps.

In order to keep your outside condenser fan running efficiently, make sure the coils and the fan blades are cleaned before the cooling season begins. Be safe and turn off the power supply before working on your HVAC unit. Clean the outdoor condenser as well.

TIP! Find a place that is shaded for your 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.

Clean any debris that accumulates on an external condenser unit. Things pile up after storms and damage your system. Debris like this can cause it to overheat, which could be detrimental to your system.

TIP! Put outdoor units in the shade if you are installing them. This will ensure cool air is sucked in, meaning less cooling must be done by the unit.

Don’t get grass clippings on your outside unit. Make sure the grass does not get in your unit. This also applies when you blow leaves, so be very careful near your exterior HVAC units when you move debris.

TIP! Be sure you have the HVAC unit in your home checked about two times every year. This should be done in the fall and again in the spring.

Lubricate your condenser yearly if it has oil ports. The port usually has either a rubber or metal cap on top of it. Put 10 drops of lightweight, non-detergent SAE oil in each port. Be careful not to use too much.

TIP! It is always a good idea to swap out single pane windows for double pane ones. In warmer months, these windows will help to maintain the cooler inside temperature.

Now you know what you have to do to keep your home HVAC system healthy. You must stay on top of things! Prevent your home’s temperature from getting uncomfortable by using this advice.
