How To Make HVAC Equipment Purchases Easier

TIP! Before you start calling to find someone to fix your unit, make sure you know the type of system that is installed. Write down the brand and the model and have all maintenance records on hand.

Many people would like to know about their HVAC unit, but they believe it is difficult. With the right knowledge it can be easy. This can be made easier with the following advice.

Know the name and type of your HVAC system before looking for a repair person. Learn the brand and the model. Your contractor will appreciate this information.

TIP! Clean the fan blades and coils in your condenser each spring. First, make sure the power is off to ensure nothing moves while you are working.

Prior to choosing an HVAC customer, try to have an idea of what you want done. A contractor cannot give an accurate estimate without looking at your system. If you can’t explain changes you’ve made, the process will be even more difficult. Know the right information ahead of time.

TIP! Your HVAC unit may suffer when trees start to lose their leaves. The grill on the fan can become cluttered with debris, which will cause a serious operating deficiency.

Keeping the outside condenser clean of debris and leaves will improve the system’s efficiency. Except when you do superficial cleaning, you need to always make sure the power is off on the unit. Clean the outdoor condenser as well.

TIP! When it gets cold outside, the outdoor condenser unit should be turned off. If the temperature drops to under 60 degrees, you risk damage to the unit if you leave it on.

Make sure clippings don’t get on your outdoor units when your mowing your lawn. Direct the grass clippings in a direction away from the HVAC unit. The same goes for when you blow leaves, so make sure your are careful when moving any debris in the vicinity of your HVAC devices.

TIP! Keep energy costs from rising by having your system serviced annually. The contractor should oil the parts that move and check the motor and freon levels.

Many homeowners forget to oil their condenser at least once per year, but it is required. A rubber or metal cap is typically placed over such ports. Put about ten drops or less of a good non-detergent SAE 20 oil into each port.

TIP! Never allow your home to get dangerously hot inside. AC units will only cool a house down 20 degrees.

Find a place that is shaded for your compressor. The cooler air that the unit can suck in, the less work it will need to do to further cool the air.

TIP! Before you invest in any HVAC contractor, make sure you spend a good deal of time researching their reputations and credentials. The BBB is always great when you are looking for references or online reviews.

With the right tools and advice, working with your HVAC system isn’t incredibly hard. The above tips can help simplify your experience. There is no time like the present to begin.
