HVAC Advice You Need To Have Right Now

TIP! Tour your home before calling a contractor. Note which of your rooms are hot and which are cold.

Learning about HVAC begins with a few simple tips. This article can help you get more acquainted with the process of keeping your HVAC up and running properly. Read over it carefully, and you will find some valuable information.

TIP! Think about what improvements you want made before picking an HVAC contractor. It’s hard for these contractors to give phone estimates without seeing the current system you have.

Before you hire an HVAC contractor, have some sort of idea of the work that needs to be done. It’s hard to get an estimate since they haven’t look at your system. Getting an estimate will be even more difficult if you cannot adequately describe the problem. Know this stuff ahead of time.

TIP! To make sure your condenser fan works properly, keep the fan blades and the coils clean. Except when you do superficial cleaning, you need to always make sure the power is off on the unit.

If you have outside condenser units, make sure to regularly clean the debris that builds up. Debris quickly gathers here, even more so if there is a storm. This can cause major issues with your system. Left unchecked, your unit is more likely to break down.

TIP! Regularly remove debris from outside condenser units. Falling leaves and wind or rain may cause debris to reduce the efficiency of your unit.

Every spring you should clean the coils and fan blades on your condenser fan. Start by turning off the power to avoid having anything move when you work on it. Then take off the grill, take the blades out, and gently clean them.

TIP! Clean the fan blades and coils in your condenser each spring. Shut the power off before you do anything.

Lubricate your condenser yearly if it has oil ports. They are usually fitted with a rubber or metal cap. Your oil should be an SAE 20. This particular oil is very lightweight and it only requires about 10 drops per port.

TIP! Don’t let your outdoor HVAC units get smothered with clippings anytime you mow the yard. Shoot grass the other way.

Be sure you have the HVAC unit in your home checked about two times every year. The fall and spring are the optimal times for this maintenance. Even if you can’t see anything wrong, checking it may help you locate and repair some possible issues.

TIP! If your condenser comes with oil ports, you should lubricate it yearly. You can find these ports covered with rubber or metal caps.

This information should have helped you understand your HVAC better. It’s just something you need to take your time with so you don’t break anything on accident or something of that nature. Best of luck with your HVAC system and may the tips above continue to help for years to come.
