HVAC Can Be Easy With This Guide

TIP! Before calling for help, know the system you have. Write down what brand your system is along with the model number and, if they’re available, maintenance records.

A reliable HVAC system can make one’s home really enjoyable. The best feeling is when your home is hot or cool enough when you’re dealing with certain seasons. However, if your system fails you can find yourself in a nightmare. It is important to learn proper HVAC maintenance, and in the article below you will find out how to do that.

TIP! Before an HVAC expert comes to your home to do any repair work, walk around the home and check out the temps in every room. Note which of your rooms are hot and which are cold.

Prior to putting in a service call on your HVAC, be able to identify it. Write down the brand and the model and have all maintenance records on hand. This will let you know that you’re able to give the contractor the information that can help them.

TIP! Be sure to regularly clean debris from external condenser units. After a wind or rain storm things may pile up, causing problems with your HVAC system.

If you’ve been having trouble with an HVAC system, look around your home before calling in people to help. Pay attention to which areas of the house are warm and which ones are cool. This gives the repairer a starting point to work from.

TIP! You should clean your condenser fan’s blades and coils every spring. Be sure to turn the power off first; you don’t want anything to move.

If the outside of your home has condenser units, ensure they are constantly cleaned. You never know when things can pile up, especially after a windy or rainy storm, and that can throw a wrench in your system. Overheating could occur, which will be problematic.

TIP! When you cut the grass, make sure your mower isn’t tossing clippings toward your outdoor units. Now so the grass clippings are shot away from your unit.

Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. First, turn the power off so nothing moves when you’re working with it. After you have turned the power off, you simply remove the grill and the blades to perform a gentle cleansing.

TIP! You must keep your HVAC systems oil ports lubricated annually. You will notice these ports have a rubber or metal cap covering them.

Fall is a hard time on HVAC units. Be sure to clean your fan grill frequently when trees nearby are shedding. The fan needs to have an unobstructed path for air to enter the unit, and if it becomes blocked, you will end up with many headaches with the unit.

TIP! When selecting the spot to put the outdoor compressor for your unit, choose somewhere that gets plenty of shade. If you have a unit taking in air that’s cooler, it won’t have to work so hard to cool air that it sends to your home.

After reading the above article, you now see the importance to keeping your HVAC in proper working condition. Bad things can happen, so keep your eye out. You are lucky to find this article so you know how to ensure your HVAC system provided proper heating and cooling.
