HVAC Tips You Can’t Master The Topic Without

TIP! Before contacting a repair service, do a short tour of the entire home. Know what part of the house is cold and which is hot.

When a heating system breaks down, homeowners are not always sure what to do next. To prevent a situation like this from mushrooming into a disaster, it is helpful to read up on the topic in advance. These suggestions will benefit you for years to come.

TIP! What do you need done? Know this before calling a contractor. It will be difficult for an HVAC contractor to provide you with an estimate on the phone without knowing what your current setup is.

Before you choose an HVAC contractor, have an idea in your mind of what needs to be done. It’s hard for these contractors to give phone estimates without seeing the current system you have. If you don’t have any idea, they will have trouble giving you any sort of quote. Be sure to find this out ahead of time.

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.

If you have outside condenser units, make sure to regularly clean the debris that builds up. Debris quickly gathers here, even more so if there is a storm. This can cause major issues with your system. It may begin to overheat, causing massive damage.

TIP! Be sure to clean external condenser units regularly. You can never tell when things will pile up, especially following rain or wind storms.

Some fan condensers may contain oil parts, and if yours does, ensure it is lubricated at least once per year. They generally have a rubber or metal cap on them. Pick out a SAE 20 type of oil because it has no detergent, is lightweight, and you should put around 10 drops in the ports but make it to where they don’t get too full.

TIP! You should clean your condenser fan’s blades and coils every spring. First, turn off the power so that nothing will move as you are working on it.

A good place to place your compressor unit outside is in a shady spot. If it sucks in cool air, it will need to work less to coll the air inside, which can make it last longer.

TIP! Do not allow grass clippings to cover the outdoor unit of your HVAC system. Aim your grass cuttings in a direction away from your unit.

Have you ever lost your HVAC system during the bitter winter or blistering summer months? If you have, then you know what a terrible nightmare this can be. If you perform regular maintenance, you are less likely to experience an untimely break down. The tips you just read will help you with whatever comes your way.
