HVAC Is Easy When You Read This Article

TIP! If your HVAC system is acting up, take a tour of the house prior to calling a professional. You will be looking to see which of your rooms feel hotter or colder than they should be.

HVAC information has been sweeping the nation as more and more people are becoming interested in performing the maintenance and repairs themselves. However, it’s still a complicated subject. That does not have to be how it is though. In this article we will share some good tips and helpful information.

TIP! Each spring, clean the fan blades and coils on your condenser. First, turn the power off so nothing moves when you’re working with it.

Get all of the details regarding a broken system before calling for repair. It is important to understand what model it is and which brand it is. Also, if it has been serviced before, you should have that information handy. That way you can provide the contractor with all the necessary information.

Clean any debris that accumulates on an external condenser unit. Excess debris can really affect your system’s quality. It can cause your system to malfunction by overheating.

TIP! Your outdoor HVAC units might suffer when your trees lose leaves. When the leaves fall from nearby trees, clean the grill of your fan often.

Make sure your condenser fan is in good working order by wiping down the fan blades and the coils. First, turn the power off so nothing moves when you’re working with it. Next, pop the grill off, put the blades out and start to gently clean them along with the unit.

TIP! Your system should be checked twice a year. Generally, you want it done in the fall and the spring.

A big mistake that people make is cutting the grass next to the outdoor condenser unit and allowing all of the clippings to blow inside the fan and coil. Get the grass shot away from your unit. Do the same when blowing snow or leaves.

TIP! If you are a home owner, replace whatever single pane windows you have with more efficient double-paned versions. Double pane windows help minimize your air conditioning use in the summer by keeping the cooler air inside your home.

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! Shut off the air conditioning if nobody is home. This will save you money on your energy bills.

If there are oil ports on your fan condenser, lubricate it annually. These ports are often covered by a rubber or metal cap. Choose an oil graded SAE 20, it is non-detergent and lightweight. Place about 10 drops into each of the ports, taking care that it does not overfill.

Your HVAC system isn’t as complicated as it first appears. It’s hard to learn without advice like that above, so remember that. Begin now to start doing well!
