HVAC Tips You Can’t Master The Topic Without

TIP! Always make sure you are up-to-date about your HVAC unit. Take a look at the system or the owner’s manual to find the name and model number.

Keeping your home’s HVAC system running at its optimal performance is a task most homeowners should do, but not everybody knows how to accomplish that. Being able to pick a good HVAC contractor to fix your system is the best thing you can do. The information shared here can help.

TIP! If the outside of your home has condenser units, ensure they are constantly cleaned. You don’t know the amount of stuff that can pile up right after heavy winds or a storm.

Before you ever begin looking for an HVAC contractor, first consider the entire job that you’ll need completed. A contractor will not be able to give you an accurate price without accurate information about your system. It’s even harder if you’re not able to explain what you’ve done. This is information that you should have prepared in advance.

Be sure to regularly clean debris from external condenser units. The dirt could pile up and harm your system. It may begin to overheat, causing massive damage.

TIP! Don’t get grass clippings on your outside unit. Turn your lawnmower in the opposite direction.

Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. Before you begin cleaning the unit, make sure that it is unplugged. Then remove the grill, remove the blades and clean it from top to bottom gently.

TIP! It is very important that your HVAC system is serviced two times a year. Generally, you want it done in the fall and the spring.

Leaves falling from trees can wreak havoc with your HVAC unit. Frequently clean the fan grill when trees are shedding leaves. The fan must not have anything in the way so that air can flow into it, and if it is clogged, you’ll have a lot of headaches eventually.

TIP! When it gets cold outside, the outdoor condenser unit should be turned off. If it’s less than 60 degrees outside, turn the unit off.

Lubricate your fan condenser if it has oil ports. These ports are typically covered with caps made of metal or rubber. Get an oil that is SAE 20 and put about 10 drops into each port, but don’t overfill it.

TIP! Double pane your windows to prevent drafts. Windows that are double pane keep the cool air in and can greatly reduce the amount of time your air conditioner will need to run.

The HVAC unit is one of the most important items in your home. However, if you don’t hire the right contractor, you can end up frustrated when your system stops working. Homeowners who have read the tips above will now have a better grasp of HVAC systems and how to work with them properly.
