HVAC Success Is Within Your Grasp Now

TIP! Be aware of the type of system that is installed in your home prior to calling a contractor to fix it. Look for the model and brand number.

Not everyone knows about working on HVAC systems. When a problem arises, though, you must know what to do. Luckily, you always have a chance to do your research, starting with this article.

TIP! Inspect the temps in your home before you call a service to help you with any HVAC issues you’re having. You will be looking to see which of your rooms feel hotter or colder than they should be.

Know what type of system you currently have before calling someone to fix it. You need to know who manufactured the product and the item number. Also, get the maintenance records from your files if you have them. This will ensure that you can give your new contractor all the information they need.

TIP! Before choosing a HVAC company find out what the company offers. It’s hard to get an estimate since they haven’t look at your system.

Know what work you want done before you select an HVAC contractor. You might not be able to get a price quote unless you let the contractor see your current system first. If you can’t explain changes you’ve made, the process will be even more difficult. It’s important to know this beforehand.

TIP! Keeping the outside condenser clean of debris and leaves will improve the system’s efficiency. Always shut the power off before doing any work or cleaning on the unit.

Clean the debris from outside units often. You don’t know the amount of stuff that can pile up right after heavy winds or a storm. It can cause the unit to overheat and break down.

TIP! If the condenser for your HVAC system is located outside, make sure you clear away any debris that might settle in or around it. Things pile up after storms and damage your system.

Be careful when doing yard work that you do not get debris on or in your unit. Make sure you shoot the clippings in the other direction from the unit. When blowing leaves, do the same. Always take care when passing your HVAC units while moving leaves, grass or other debris.

TIP! Make certain that you clean your condenser when the weather begins to warm. Make sure to turn off the fan’s power first to be safe.

If the condenser fan has oil parts, then you need to lubricate it at least once per year. You can find these ports covered with rubber or metal caps. Get an oil that is SAE 20 and put about 10 drops into each port, but don’t overfill it.

TIP! HVAC units may suffer when leaves are falling off the trees. Make sure the unit’s fan grill is cleaned frequently when the leaves begin to fall.

Having an HVAC break is something nobody wants to have happen. The smartest homeowners will study their HVAC system prior to a problem ever occurring. Use the information in this article to assist you with your HVAC maintenance.
