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

TIP! Clean the coils of your condenser fan each month. Turn off your power before doing any job like this.

The only way your home can always be a desirable temperature is if you are properly heating and cooling it. That is why proper maintenance is so important. If you have a poor HVAC, you will be costing yourself a lot of money. Read on to find out how to care for your HVAC.

TIP! Your outdoor HVAC units might suffer when your trees lose leaves. Make sure the fan’s grill is cleaned often during the fall.

Before you call someone to help you fix your system, be sure to know what sort of system you have in place. Write down the brand and the model and have all maintenance records on hand. This helps make sure the contractor has the information they will need.

TIP! Put outdoor units in the shade if you are installing them. This will ensure cool air is sucked in, meaning less cooling must be done by the unit.

Don’t hire a contractor until you know a little about what you are facing. If you can’t describe the problem, you may not get an accurate quote. They also won’t be able to offer you a quote if they don’t have a detailed idea of what you want done. Know this stuff ahead of time.

TIP! Make sure your HVAC systems is checked twice a year. Your system should be inspected in Spring and Fall.

Don’t let grass clippings pile up against your outdoor condenser. Make sure you shoot the clippings in the other direction from the unit. If you’re blowing leaves, this same problem can occur, so make sure you move around the unit and blow the leaves away from it.

TIP! When it gets cold outside, it is necessary to turn off outdoor condenser units. The unit will become damaged if you do not take care of it.

During the fall, leaves can gather around your HVAC. Clean the fan grill often when leaves are falling. Because the fan requires a clear path for air to enter, you may encounter issues with your system if the fan gets blocked up.

TIP! Save some cash by shutting down the air-conditioning system when there is no one in the house. When you turn it off, the house heats up, but only to a certain threshold.

If your condenser comes with oil ports, you should lubricate it yearly. These ports are typically covered with caps made of metal or rubber. 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! Before you invest in any HVAC contractor, make sure you spend a good deal of time researching their reputations and credentials. The BBB is always great when you are looking for references or online reviews.

You can now see how important a properly maintained HVAC system is. Paying close attention to maintenance will help you avoid problems. Follow these tips to keep your HVAC system functioning properly and avoid unexpected breakdowns.
