HVAC Tips, Tricks And Techniques You Need

TIP! Check out the system that you have before you call a professional. Learn the brand, model, and if you have it, the maintenance history.

Many people forget about their HVAC systems until they all the sudden quit working. When it fails it quickly becomes very important. Locating a contractor to work on your unit, or to put in a new one, isn’t easy. This article will guide you through this process.

TIP! Clean the debris off your outdoor condenser unit. You can never tell when things will pile up, especially following rain or wind storms.

Check out the system that you have before you call a professional. Know the brand name and model number. It is also helpful to have the maintenance history. That way you can provide the contractor with all the necessary information.

TIP! If the fan condenser on your unit has ports for oil, make sure you lubricate it once a year. You can find these ports covered with rubber or metal caps.

Tour your home before calling a contractor. Make a list of the rooms which are comfortable and which just aren’t. That will help your repairman figure out where the problem is, and how he can fix it easily and quickly.

Regularly remove debris from outside condenser units. Excess debris can really affect your system’s quality. It could overheat and cause a disaster with your unit.

TIP! Have your heating and cooling system inspected twice a year. This should be done in Fall and Spring to prepare it for the extreme months.

Each spring, try cleaning the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan. Before you begin cleaning the unit, make sure that it is unplugged. Next, pop off the grill, pull out the blades and start cleaning them and the unit itself off gently.

TIP! Turn off your outdoor condenser when it becomes cold out. If temps go below 60 you run the risk of damaging a unit that remains on.

If the condenser fan has oil parts, then you need to lubricate it at least once per year. You’ll find these ports are covered with a metal or rubber cap. Use SAE 20 oil that is lightweight and detergent free, and put ten drops or fewer into each one. Make sure not to overfill them.

TIP! Installing a programmable digital thermostat can help save money. It will help save on your heating and cooling costs by turning itself down at certain times.

Now that you know a thing or two about HVAC systems, you should feel comfortable dealing with them. If you need to have your existing system repaired or replaced, you will know what to look for and what to avoid. Keep these suggestions in mind in your search for the right system.
