HVAC Tips You Can’t Master The Topic Without

TIP! Before calling for help, know the system you have. Get information on the make and model, plus if you have information on the history of maintenance, that will help, too.

Ignoring your HVAC system is not the wisest thing to do, and usually it is only paid attention to when it breaks down. When it fails it quickly becomes very important. Finding a professional isn’t easy. This article will help you out.

TIP! Avoid showering your outdoor unit with grass clippings when you mow the lawn. Make certain the debris goes away from it.

Know what you need before you hire a contractor. It will be hard for a contractor to give you a price estimate over the phone if they have not seen your current system. It will be even harder if you cannot explain what you have done. Make an effort to gather all information you need before making the phone call.

TIP! Some fan condensers may contain oil parts, and if yours does, ensure it is lubricated at least once per year. You’ll find these ports are covered with a metal or rubber cap.

To make sure your condenser fan works properly, keep the fan blades and the coils clean. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit. Clean off any leaves or debris from your external condenser unit.

TIP! When you are choosing a location for the outdoor compressor unit, it’s preferable to use a shaded area. If the unit is taking in cooler air, the efficiency will be boosted since it will not need to work as hard.

If you have condenser units outside your home, be sure to clean out the debris from them often. Debris can pile up at rates that increase during rainy or windy weather, and this can foul up the inner workings of your system. This can lead to overheating.

TIP! Put outdoor units in the shade if you are installing them. If the air your machine draws in is already cooler, it will require less energy to regulate before it’s filtered into your home.

Clean your condenser’s fan blades and coil in the spring. First, make sure the power is off to ensure nothing moves while you are working. After you have turned the power off, you simply remove the grill and the blades to perform a gentle cleansing.

TIP! Have your HVAC serviced at least yearly. The fall and spring are the optimal times for this maintenance.

Make sure that you do not cover your outdoor components with grass clippings when you are trimming the grass. Make sure you shoot the clippings in the other direction from the unit. This also applies when you blow leaves, so be very careful near your exterior HVAC units when you move debris.

TIP! Turn off your outdoor condenser when it’s getting cold. Avoid damaging the unit by turning it off when the outdoor temperature drops below 60 degrees.

Now you should be better educated when it comes to HVAC systems. If your existing system needs to be replaced or repaired, you now know what to avoid and what you should look for. Use this advice to get the right one.
