Need HVAC Help? It’s Found In This Article

TIP! Leaves falling from trees can wreak havoc with your HVAC unit. The grill on the fan can become cluttered with debris, which will cause a serious operating deficiency.

It’s always the hottest or coldest day when your HVAC fails. Learning about the topic means being able to make decisions down the road. Keep reading to start doing just that.

TIP! Try to choose a shady place to locate the outdoor compressor device. Your unit won’t have to work as hard to cool the inside air if the outside air it sucks from is cooler.

Know what type of system you currently have before calling someone to fix it. You need to know who manufactured the product and the item number. Also, get the maintenance records from your files if you have them. This will help make sure that the contractor you hire has all the necessary information.

TIP! To boost the efficiency of your HVAC system, you should put your unit in a shady place. This will ensure cool air is sucked in, meaning less cooling must be done by the unit.

Clean any debris that accumulates on an external condenser unit. After a wind or rain storm things may pile up, causing problems with your system. Left unchecked, your unit is more likely to break down.

TIP! Replace any single-paned windows with double-paned versions. Having double pane windows allows your air conditioning unit to be run much less during the summer, because the cool air is kept inside the home.

The coils and blades on the fans should be cleaned once a year. Be sure to turn the power off first; you don’t want anything to move. Next, pop off the grill, pull out the blades and start cleaning them and the unit itself off gently.

TIP! Get your HVAC unit serviced yearly. During the visit, the contractor will oil parts, inspect the motor and the freon levels.

Don’t let grass clippings pile up against your outdoor condenser. Direct the clippings away from the equipment. This also applies when you blow leaves, so be very careful near your exterior HVAC units when you move debris.

TIP! Do not let your house get dangerously hot. Even the best air conditioners can only realistically cool your home approximately 20 degrees Farenheit.

Fall is a hard time on HVAC units. Whenever leaves are falling, consistently clean the fan grill. The fan must be unobstructed to work properly, and if it becomes blocked, it could cause your system to break down.

TIP! When you want a HVAC contractor who is reliable, you need to spend some time in researching the background and reputation of several potential companies. A good start would be the BBB to see if there are any complaints, then search online for review sites where you can see what actual customers had to say about their experience.

If there are oil ports on your fan condenser, lubricate it annually. You will notice these ports have a rubber or metal cap covering them. Look for an oil that is lightweight and then put about 10 drops inside the port. You don’t want to put in too much.

TIP! It is possible for air conditioners to ice over. The drain line also occasionally freezes, which can be misdiagnosed as a plumbing leak.

You may feel a bit overwhelmed when your system needs maintenance. With the right information, it doesn’t have to be that bad. Now you should be prepared to deal with any issues.
