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

TIP! If problems arise with the HVAC system, check the entire house before contacting someone to come for repairs. Note which of your rooms are hot and which are cold.

You do not want to avoid the maintenance of your HVAC system. You probably are here because you’re trying to figure out what can be done to help you with your HVAC system. The following article offers lots of great tips.

TIP! Don’t hire a contractor until you know a little about what you are facing. Discussing the problem is simplified if you understand what has happened with the unit.

Get all of the details regarding a broken system before calling for repair. Learn the brand, model, and if you have it, the maintenance history. This information will be helpful to any contractor you hire to repair it.

TIP! To make sure your condenser fan works properly, keep the fan blades and the coils clean. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit.

Before choosing a HVAC company find out what the company offers. 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. So, know this information in advance.

TIP! If there are condenser units as part of your HVAC system, clean them often as they tend to have lots of debris. Excess debris can really affect your system’s quality.

To make sure your condenser fan works properly, keep the fan blades and the coils clean. Always shut the power off before doing any work or cleaning on the unit. Keep the exterior of the condenser unit free of debris.

TIP! Make sure clippings don’t get on your outdoor units when your mowing your lawn. Have the grass shoot in the opposite direction.

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. It can also cause it to overheat.

TIP! Your outdoor HVAC units might suffer when your trees lose leaves. At least twice a week, you need to clean the grill of your fan.

If you have a fan condenser with oil ports, it needs to be lubricated every year. A rubber or metal cap is typically placed over such ports. Pick out a SAE 20 type of oil because it has no detergent, is lightweight, and you should put around 10 drops in the ports but make it to where they don’t get too full.

Hvac System

TIP! Be sure you have the HVAC unit in your home checked about two times every year. The ideal thing to do would be to have it checked out in the fall and spring so you’re able to figure out if everything is ready for the cold and hot months.

You should now have a good understanding of how important it is to maintain your HVAC system correctly. If you don’t do this and your system breaks, the repair bill can be very costly. The purpose of the suggestions above is to help you prevent expensive repairs to your HVAC system.
