HVAC Can Be Easy With This Guide

TIP! Prior to putting in a service call on your HVAC, be able to identify it. Look for the model and brand number.

The method you use to cool and heat your home is very important. This is why your HVAC system needs to be in top shape. If you don’t care for your HVAC, then your repair costs can mount while your living conditions deteriorate. Below you’ll get a lot of great advice to help you keep the HVAC system you own working great for a long time.

TIP! Cleaning the blades and coils will help the system run better. Turn off your power before doing any job like this.

What do you need done? Know this before calling a contractor. It will be hard for a contractor to give you a price estimate over the phone if they have not seen your current system. It will be even harder if you cannot explain what you have done. Be sure to find this out ahead of time.

TIP! Clean your outdoor condensers often. Excess debris can really affect your system’s quality.

As you notice the tress begin to lose their leaves, keep an eye on your outdoor condenser unit. Make sure you clean out your fan grill often once nearby trees start shedding their leaves. When blockages restrict the flow of air to the fan, you could end up with serious issues on your hands.

TIP! Every spring you need to make sure your condenser fan’s coils and blades on the fan part are clean. First, make sure the power is off to ensure nothing moves while you are working.

Lubricate the oil ports on your condenser once each year. You will notice these ports have a rubber or metal cap covering them. Choose a SAE 20 oil whch is lightweight and non-detergent and place 10 drops or less into each port, ensuring it doesn’t overfill.

TIP! A good place to place your compressor unit outside is in a shady spot. This will limit the work that it has to do.

You want to put the outdoor compressor device in a shaded area. When the unit sucks in cooler air, then less work is required to cool it further which in turn boosts the units efficiency.

Hvac System

TIP! Don’t let your home get way too hot to where it’s dangerous. It is only possible for an air conditioner to lower the temperature in a home by 20 degrees F in a short time.

Now you know what you have to do to keep your home HVAC system healthy. Pay attention to keeping it maintained to make sure it won’t go bad. Use these tips to keep your HVAC system from failing when it should be running smoothly. It’s not really a tough job at all!
