HVAC Success In A Few Simple Tips

TIP! Check out the system that you have before you call a professional. Write down what brand your system is along with the model number and, if they’re available, maintenance records.

HVAC tips can seem really complicated to people who don’t have a basic understanding of how the system works. There is indeed lots to think about surrounding this subject. Nonetheless, there is ample information available to help you understand the ins and out of this subject.

TIP! If you’ve been having trouble with an HVAC system, look around your home before calling in people to help. Note which of your rooms are hot and which are cold.

Before calling someone to repair your system, make sure you know what kind of HVAC system you actually have. Get the brand, model name, and if you can you should get the maintenance history out. Then, you’ll be ready to tell the contractor what they need to know.

TIP! By the end of spring, the fan blades and coils of your condenser should be thoroughly cleaned, so operation can proceed with greater efficiency. Before you clean the unit, be sure to turn off the power.

Before selecting a HVAC repairman, know what you need done. You might not be able to get a price quote unless you let the contractor see your current system first. It will be more difficult for him to assist you over the phone without the information readily available. Make an effort to gather all information you need before making the phone call.

TIP! Make sure that you regularly clean debris that might build up on external condenser units. Leaves, twigs and other troublesome objects can accumulate, particularly after very windy weather, and this will wreak havoc on your system.

Clean the debris from outside units often. After a wind or rain storm things may pile up, causing problems with your system. It can get overheated, which will cause problems with the whole system.

TIP! When the trees are losing their leaves, your HVAC unit can suffer. Make sure the unit’s fan grill is cleaned frequently when the leaves begin to fall.

When you’re trying to cut your grass, don’t cover a unit outside with the clippings. Aim your grass cuttings in a direction away from your unit. This is the same if you are using a leaf blower.

TIP! To increase the efficiency of your HVAC unit, be sure to keep it in the shade. This will help you save on your energy bill.

Some fan condensers may contain oil parts, and if yours does, ensure it is lubricated at least once per year. You’ll see that the ports here are closed with a rubber or metal cap. Get an oil that is SAE 20 and put about 10 drops into each port, but don’t overfill it.

TIP! Your HVAC system should be checked a few times a year. This should happen in the fall and the spring.

After reading this article, you should be somewhat familiar with the HVAC unit. It’s really hard to get started with it unless you get motivated, so be sure that you take these things into account before you get started. This will ensure you great success.
