HVAC Tips And Tricks You Need To Know

TIP! If you are having issues with your HVAC, do a tour of your house before you call in help. Know what part of the house is cold and which is hot.

Every homeowner must consider how their home will be heated or cooled when necessary. That means your HVAC has to be in tip top shape. If you do not properly care for it, you should expect terrible living conditions and expensive repairs. Continue reading to learn more about what you need to know to keep your system running.

TIP! It is important to have some knowledge of your present system and needs before calling a contractor. A contractor will be hard pressed to provide you with an over-the-phone estimate if unfamiliar with your system.

Know what type of system you currently have before calling someone to fix it. Look for the maintenance history and brand and model. This will give contractor’s a better idea of what to expect before they show up, which will help things go more smoothly on arrival.

TIP! To make sure your condenser fan works properly, keep the fan blades and the coils clean. Turn off the power if you are going to work on your HVAC system.

Before an HVAC expert comes to your home to do any repair work, walk around the home and check out the temps in every room. Find out which rooms are hot and which are cold. Give this information to your contractor when they arrive.

TIP! If your unit is outdoors, clean them regularly. Particularly after bad weather, you should inspect your unit.

If the condenser for your HVAC system is located outside, make sure you clear away any debris that might settle in or around it. Debris can pile up after a storm, bringing potential damage with it. Overheating can occur, which often spells disaster for your system.

TIP! If you need to decide the best place to put your outdoor compressor unit, consider putting it in a location that is in the shade. If the unit is taking in cooler air, the efficiency will be boosted since it will not need to work as hard.

Clean the fan blades and coils in your condenser each spring. Turn it off first so you don’t get hurt or break something. Then, pop off its grills, pull the blades out, and begin cleaning the unit and them gently.

TIP! It is very important that your HVAC system is serviced two times a year. This should be done in the fall and again in the spring.

If you have a fan condenser with oil ports, it needs to be lubricated every year. 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! Do not let your house get dangerously hot. An air conditioner can only cool your home by 20ºF quickly.

You should now have a better idea of how to keep that HVAC unit running smoothly. Do not let neglect cause major issues. Follow these tips to keep your HVAC system functioning properly and avoid unexpected breakdowns.
