HVAC: What You Should Know Before You Begin

Many people think dealing with the HVAC is tough work. This doesn’t need to be the way things are, though. Use the guide below to learn more.

TIP! If the condenser for your HVAC system is located outside, make sure you clear away any debris that might settle in or around it. Excess debris can really affect your system’s quality.

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. This will let you know that you’re able to give the contractor the information that can help them.

TIP! Every spring you need to make sure your condenser fan’s coils and blades on the fan part are clean. First, the power should be turned off so things don’t move as you work.

If your HVAC system us giving you issues, take a look around the house prior to calling a contractor. Determine which rooms feel cold and which feel hot. This will help your contractor quickly determine where the issue lies and how to get it fixed quickly and easily.

TIP! Make sure clippings don’t get on your outdoor units when your mowing your lawn. Shoot grass the other way.

Know what work you want done before you select an HVAC 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 way more hard if you can’t figure out what they need to do. Understand this information beforehand.

Outside Condenser

TIP! When selecting the spot to put the outdoor compressor for your unit, choose somewhere that gets plenty of shade. In this way, it will be cooling air that is already somewhat cooled.

Your outside condenser fan can be helped to run better by you cleaning the fan blades and coils prior to summer starting up. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit. The outside condenser unit should be kept free of leaves and other debris.

TIP! Turn off your outdoor condenser when it becomes cold out. To avoid damage, units should be turned off when temperatures are below 60 degrees.

You should clean your condenser fan’s blades and coils every spring. Shut the power off before you do anything. Then, remove the grill, then remove the blades and begin the cleaning process of the blades and the unit.

TIP! Keep energy costs from rising by having your system serviced annually. This inspection will ensure that your unit is working efficiently, including a freon level and motor check, and oiling moving parts.

Understanding your HVAC system is not that complicated if you read the helpful tips in the above article. It’s hard to learn without advice like that above, so remember that. Start today and in the end you’ll succeed!
