HVAC Advice From The Experts In The Field

TIP! Be aware of the type of system that is installed in your home prior to calling a contractor to fix it. Learn the brand and the model.

An HVAC unit is a valuable system in your home. This means that an HVAC unit will help to combat the more extreme temperatures outside the home, so that those living in the home will be comfortable at all times. Because it is a mechanical system, it calls for the help of a professional installer. The following information will give any homeowner the info they need to know about HVAC as well.

TIP! If your HVAC system is acting up, take a tour of the house prior to calling a professional. Note which rooms are hot and which are cold.

Know what type of system you currently have before calling someone to fix it. Write down what brand your system is along with the model number and, if they’re available, maintenance records. This will let you know that you’re able to give the contractor the information that can help them.

TIP! If the condenser for your HVAC system is located outside, make sure you clear away any debris that might settle in or around it. Excess debris can really affect your system’s quality.

Before you choose an HVAC contractor, have an idea in your mind of what needs to be done. It is going to be hard to get a price estimate on the phone if the current system isn’t something they’ve seen. Being unable to explain what has been already done will make it even harder. Having this information handy will make the process much smoother.

Try to prevent debris from getting in your HVAC unit. Clean the fan grill often when leaves are falling. Otherwise, the unit will have to work unnecessarily hard.

TIP! During the fall, leaves can gather around your HVAC. When you see nearby trees shedding their leaves, clean the fan grill on your unit constantly.

If the condenser fan has oil parts, then you need to lubricate it at least once per year. They generally have a rubber or metal cap on them. You should select an SAE 20 oil since it is lightweight and does not contain detergent. Be sure to use just 10 drops or so, or your system may overfill.

TIP! Turn off your outdoor condenser when it becomes cold out. If the temperature drops to under 60 degrees, you risk damage to the unit if you leave it on.

These tips should be of use when you have to tackle contractors or HVAC units. You want to make sure this unit is installed, maintained and works as it should. Using these tips will ensure your comfort for many years to come.
