HVAC? This Article Has The Tips You Need

TIP! Before calling anyone to repair your system, know what system you have. Find out the brand and model and, if possible, dig out the maintenance history.

The subject of HVAC systems might strike you as complex when you hear people discussing it. There is a great deal of information to absorb. That said, there is a wealth of information that will help you to understand all about the subject.

TIP! If your HVAC is giving you problems, tour your home before calling a technician. Jot down the rooms that are hot and the ones that are cold.

Always make sure you are up-to-date about your HVAC unit. Know the brand name and model number. It is also helpful to have the maintenance history. Then, you’ll be ready to tell the contractor what they need to know.

TIP! Think about what improvements you want made before picking an HVAC contractor. A contractor will not be able to give you an accurate price without accurate information about your system.

Inspect the temps in your home before you call a service to help you with any HVAC issues you’re having. Make note of which rooms are cold and which are hot. This information will help the contractor determine where the problem is and how to fix it.

TIP! Keep outside condenser fans running smoothly by cleaning fan blades and coils before the summer begins. The power to the unit should be removed before you begin any maintenance, even cleaning.

Keeping the outside condenser clean of debris and leaves will improve the system’s efficiency. Be safe and turn off the power supply before working on your HVAC unit. Remove leaves and debris from the outdoor unit.

TIP! Keep your outdoor units free of debris when your cutting grass. Instead, make sure that the grass is shooting in the opposite direction.

Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. First, turn off the power so that nothing will move as you are working on it. Remove the grill and carefully clean the blades and surrounding areas.

TIP! Your outdoor HVAC units might suffer when your trees lose leaves. When you notice your trees shedding, frequently clean your unit’s fan grill.

When you cut the grass, don’t cover the outdoor units with their clippings. Get the grass shot away from your unit. This also applies to blowing leaves or moving debris. Just be careful with that exterior HVAC unit.

TIP! To boost the efficiency of your HVAC system, you should put your unit in a shady place. The unit will have to do less work cooling this air.

Many homeowners forget to oil their condenser at least once per year, but it is required. These are usually covered with rubber or metal caps. Put 10 drops of lightweight, non-detergent SAE oil in each port. Be careful not to use too much.

TIP! When it gets cold outside, turn off the outdoor condensers. To avoid damage, units should be turned off when temperatures are below 60 degrees.

This article has hopefully helped you understand a little bit more about your HVAC unit. Take all that you’ve just read into account when working on any system. You will make things much easier on yourself after learning more about it!
