HVAC Doesn’t Have To Be Hard, Here’s Help

TIP! When you start making calls to get someone to help with your HVAC system, it’s a good idea to know what system you have before that phone call. Get the brand, model name, and if you can you should get the maintenance history out.

The HVAC system you have is important to your home, so you can let it go bad. You probably are here because you’re trying to figure out what can be done to help you with your HVAC system. This article has plenty of advice for you!

TIP! Before contacting a repair service, do a short tour of the entire home. Determine which rooms are hotter or colder than they should be.

Go through your home before you call HVAC professional. Jot down the rooms that are hot and the ones that are cold. Figuring this out will the contractor to diagnose the issues and quickly get to work on fixing it.

TIP! Before you hire an HVAC contractor, have some sort of idea of the work that needs to be done. It will be difficult for an HVAC contractor to provide you with an estimate on the phone without knowing what your current setup is.

If you have units that are condensers outside of the home, keep them free of debris. Debris can pile up at rates that increase during rainy or windy weather, and this can foul up the inner workings of your system. It could get too hot, leading to even more problems.

Begin Cleaning

TIP! As the trees around your home lose leaves, it can cause your HVAC unit trouble. Clean outdoor units often to remove leaves.

Each spring, try cleaning the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan. Before you begin cleaning the unit, make sure that it is unplugged. Then, pop off its grills, pull the blades out, and begin cleaning the unit and them gently.

TIP! Check to determine if the fan condenser on your HVAC system is equipped with oil ports, and if it is, be sure to lubricate every year. These ports are often covered by a rubber or metal cap.

Don’t get grass clippings on your outside unit. Make certain the debris goes away from it. Be just as mindful when you blow leaves to not blow them toward your HVAC equipment.

TIP! Consider getting a programmable thermostat for your AC. It changes the temperature so the system isn’t in use when it’s cooler outside or no one is home.

Lubricate the oil ports on your condenser once each year. They generally have a rubber or metal cap on them. Put 10 drops of lightweight, non-detergent SAE oil in each port. Be careful not to use too much.

TIP! When you are away from home, adjust your thermostat to a money saving temperature. By raising the temperature from, for example 78 to 80, your house will be warmer, but only up to 80 before your AC kicks in.

It is very important that your HVAC system is serviced two times a year. Checks in the spring as well as in autumn are the best. Even if everything seems fine, check things out to find potential problems.

Your HVAC system is an important unit. If it fails, you’ll spend a lot to fix it. Use these tips to keep this from happening.
