HVAC Success Is Within Your Grasp Now

TIP! When you start making calls to get someone to help with your HVAC system, it’s a good idea to know what system you have before that phone call. Know the brand name and model number.

An HVAC system is present in many homes. An HVAC is something that helps people keep their homes at a temperature that’s comfortable. This HVAC system has many delicate parts to it, and it is very important that professionals are hired to put it in as well as perform yearly maintenance. Read on to learn more about HVAC systems.

TIP! Before choosing an HVAC contractor, think of what you wish to have done. You might not be able to get a price quote unless you let the contractor see your current system first.

If you are having issues with your HVAC, do a tour of your house before you call in help. Make note of which rooms are cold and which are hot. This will help the repairman determine what the problem is.

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. Except when you do superficial cleaning, you need to always make sure the power is off on the unit.

Each spring, try cleaning the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan. Before you do anything, however, turn the power off. Secondly, pop the grill off, take the blades off and clean them as well as the actual unit.

TIP! Clean your condenser’s fan blades and coil in the spring. Turn it off first so you don’t get hurt or break something.

Leaves falling from trees can wreak havoc with your HVAC unit. Make sure the fan’s grill is cleaned often during the fall. The fan must not have anything in the way so that air can flow into it, and if it is clogged, you’ll have a lot of headaches eventually.

TIP! If you have a fan condenser with oil ports, it needs to be lubricated every year. You’ll find these ports are covered with a metal or rubber cap.

If you have oil ports as part of the fan condenser, annual lubrication is key. You can find these ports covered with rubber or metal caps. Look for an oil that is lightweight and then put about 10 drops inside the port. You don’t want to put in too much.

TIP! When selecting a location for an outdoor compressor, opt for a shady area, if possible. The cooler air entering the unit will require less work to get to the proper temperature.

If you can choose the place where your outdoor compressor goes, pick a spot with lots of shade. The cooler air that the unit can suck in, the less work it will need to do to further cool the air.

TIP! In order to keep energy costs down, make sure heating and cooling systems are services at least once per year. The motor should be checked, the parts oiled and the freon levels inspected.

Clearly, some ways exist to aid you in dealing with contractors and HVAC units. You need to be sure that the system is properly installed, maintained and working how it should. Use the tips above, and you will have no problem.
