HVAC Do’s And Don’ts For The Average Person

TIP! Before calling anyone to repair your system, know what system you have. Learn the brand and the model.

Are you lost when it comes to finding someone to work on your HVAC unit? This can make it hard to choose a good HVAC system or to deal with problems to your existing system. The good news for you is that you can use the advice presented below to help you figure out how to tackle an HVAC issue.

TIP! If you have some problems with the HVAC system, check out your home before calling a contractor. Note which of your rooms are hot and which are cold.

Before you hire an HVAC contractor, have some sort of idea of the work that needs to be done. A contractor cannot give an accurate estimate without looking at your system. If you do not know what you want, the process can become tedious, especially over the phone. Be sure to find this out ahead of time.

TIP! Understand what you want before talking to a contractor. A contractor will be hard pressed to provide you with an over-the-phone estimate if unfamiliar with your system.

Clean your condenser’s fan blades and coil in the spring. Shut the power off before you do anything. Secondly, pop the grill off, take the blades off and clean them as well as the actual unit.

TIP! Your outside condenser fan can be helped to run better by you cleaning the fan blades and coils prior to summer starting up. Always shut off all power to your unit for any work beyond superficial cleaning.

Lubricate the oil ports on your condenser once each year. Such ports tend to have coverings made of rubber or metal. 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! When you’re trying to cut your grass, don’t cover a unit outside with the clippings. Instead, make sure that the grass is shooting in the opposite direction.

If possible, put your HVAC in a shaded area if it is outside. It will reduce the temperature of the air going into the unit, meaning that it will not have to work as hard to cool it.

Have your HVAC serviced at least yearly. Check into it twice a year before you head into the hot and cold months. This will help you to avoid problems.

TIP! In order to keep energy costs down, make sure heating and cooling systems are services at least once per year. The motor should be checked, the parts oiled and the freon levels inspected.

Dealing with a broken HVAC system is a nightmare every homeowner dreads. However, as long as they take the time to study up on the topic before something calamitous occurs, the process need not be so terrible. Having these tricks and tips handy will help a homeowner solve any HVAC issues affordably and promptly.
