HVAC Is Easy When You Read This Article

TIP! Before calling for help, know the system you have. Write down the make, model, and any maintenance history.

There isn’t a lot that’s more frustrating than working on HVAC problems when it’s really hot or cold outside. Learning as much as you can about HVAC systems prior to contacting a professional will help you choose the right company. Read this article for advice.

TIP! Before choosing an HVAC contractor, think of what you wish to have done. It’s hard to get an estimate since they haven’t look at your system.

To make sure your condenser fan works properly, keep the fan blades and the coils clean. Always turn the unit off before you do anything to it, including leaning. Additionally, remove leaves and any other debris from the outside condenser unit.

Clean the debris off your outdoor condenser unit. Particularly after bad weather, you should inspect your unit. Left unchecked, your unit is more likely to break down.

TIP! Be sure to regularly clean debris from external condenser units. The dirt could pile up and harm your system.

You must keep your HVAC systems oil ports lubricated annually. These ports are typically covered with caps made of metal or rubber. Pick a type of SAE 20 oil that is non-detergent and lightweight. Place 10 or less drops into every port to avoid overfilling.

TIP! Each spring, try cleaning the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan. Make sure to turn off the fan’s power first to be safe.

When selecting the spot to put the outdoor compressor for your unit, choose somewhere that gets plenty of shade. When your unit takes in cool air, it takes less energy to tool the air, thus boosting efficiency.

For maximum efficiency, place outdoor units in a shady spot. This will ensure cool air is sucked in, meaning less cooling must be done by the unit.

Pane Windows

TIP! A good place to place your compressor unit outside is in a shady spot. When your unit takes in cool air, it takes less energy to tool the air, thus boosting efficiency.

Replace single pane windows by installing double pane, if possible. During the summer, the use of double-pane windows will help keep the cool air locked inside of the home. Conversely, this also works to keep warm air in during colder months.

TIP! If you can, install double-paned windows throughout your home. Double-pane windows keep inside air cooler, allowing you to reduce AC usage in the summertime.

Hiring a contractor is a daunting task if you don’t know much about the field. However, armed with information, the process doesn’t have to be difficult. Hopefully, you now have the information you need to work with your HVAC system.
