HVAC? This Article Has The Tips You Need

TIP! Before you call someone to help you fix your system, be sure to know what sort of system you have in place. Write down the brand and the model and have all maintenance records on hand.

Many people don’t even think about their HVAC until there is an issue. When your HVAC system fails, suddenly you need to determine whether it can be fixed, or if it needs replacement, who to call and other issues. Finding the right person to maintain or install an HVAC system can be complicated. The information in this article will help you understand the process.

TIP! If problems arise with the HVAC system, check the entire house before contacting someone to come for repairs. While you are walking through the house, gauge which rooms are the coolest and which are the warmest.

Outdoor condenser units need to be cleaned regularly. You don’t know when things are going to pile up, like right after it’s windy or rains, and that can ruin your system. It could get too hot, leading to even more problems.

TIP! Clean the coils of your condenser fan each month. Turn off your power before doing any job like this.

Clean the fan blades and coils in your condenser each spring. First, turn the power off so nothing moves when you’re working with it. Next, remove the grill, take the blades and clean them gently, then clean the actual unit.

TIP! Each spring it’s time to clean the inside of your condenser unit, including the fan and the sensitive coil. Shut the power off before you do anything.

When you are cutting the grass, be sure not to cover your outdoor units with clippings. When you work with your lawn mower, make sure it spits the grass to the side opposite of your unit. Be just as mindful when you blow leaves to not blow them toward your HVAC equipment.

TIP! If your condenser comes with oil ports, you should lubricate it yearly. You can easily find the ports as they have a rubber or metal cap.

If your condenser comes with oil ports, you should lubricate it yearly. You’ll find these ports are covered with a metal or rubber cap. Put about ten drops or less of a good non-detergent SAE 20 oil into each port.

TIP! When selecting a location for an outdoor compressor, opt for a shady area, if possible. When it draws in air for cooling, it will be more efficient because it will not need to work as hard to cool down the air.

If you are a homeowner, or if you can get permission from your landlord, install double-paned windows in place of any single panes in your home. During the summer, the use of double-pane windows will help keep the cool air locked inside of the home. They help in the winter, too, keeping the heat in.

TIP! Get your HVAC unit serviced two times per year. Checks in the spring as well as in autumn are the best.

Since reading this piece, you have a better education on HVAC systems. If your existing system needs to be replaced or repaired, you now know what to avoid and what you should look for. Refer back to this article as necessary to make sure that you’re on the right track.
