All of the possible HVAC systems available make it a confusing decision for first-timers. How can you decide which system to purchase? What size? What sort of features do you want? There are new items coming along daily, making the situation hard. The tips in the following article will help you choose the correct system.
Check the whole house before you call for help. Notice the temperature in each room. Are some cooler or hotter than others? Give this information to your contractor when they arrive.
If there are condenser units as part of your HVAC system, clean them often as they tend to have lots of debris. After a wind or rain storm things may pile up, causing problems with your HVAC system. It may begin to overheat, causing massive damage.
Leaves and debris can damage your system. Make sure the fan’s grill is cleaned often during the fall. The fan must stay clear in order to function, and if it gets blocked, you will have to contend with problems.
Check to determine if the fan condenser on your HVAC system is equipped with oil ports, and if it is, be sure to lubricate every year. You’ll find these ports are covered with a metal or rubber cap. Use SAE 20 oil that is lightweight and detergent free, and put ten drops or fewer into each one. Make sure not to overfill them.
If you can choose the place where your outdoor compressor goes, pick a spot with lots of shade. The cooler air that the unit can suck in, the less work it will need to do to further cool the air.
Selecting your HVAC system can be hard to do, and it may overwhelm you sometimes. After reading the above advice, it should be a little easier. Review and apply all of the tips you have just learned.
