No More Struggle – HVAC Success Is Yours!

TIP! Go through your home before you call HVAC professional. While you are walking through the house, gauge which rooms are the coolest and which are the warmest.

Homeowners may find it difficult to know how to care for a failing HVAC system. Keep the situation from being a huge disaster by getting to know the topic. This piece is meant to provide solid instruction on hiring proper HVAC contractors.

TIP! Keeping the outside condenser clean of debris and leaves will improve the system’s efficiency. The power to the unit should be removed before you begin any maintenance, even cleaning.

What system do you have? You need this information to tell your contractor. Write down the make, model, and any maintenance history. This will let you know that you’re able to give the contractor the information that can help them.

TIP! Clean the coils on the condenser fan from time to time. For safety, always turn the power off first.

If your HVAC doesn’t seem to be working properly, check things out yourself prior to calling in a technician. Notice the temperature in each room. Are some cooler or hotter than others? The contractor can probably figure out and fix the problem easier.

TIP! Do not allow grass clippings to cover the outdoor unit of your HVAC system. Make sure the grass does not get in your unit.

The coils and blades on the fans should be cleaned once a year. Make sure to turn off the fan’s power first to be safe. Then you need to get the grill popped off and get the blades out so you can clean them and your unit gently.

TIP! Leaves falling from trees can wreak havoc with your HVAC unit. During this time of year, check and clear off the fan grill on your unit on a regular basis.

A big mistake that people make is cutting the grass next to the outdoor condenser unit and allowing all of the clippings to blow inside the fan and coil. Aim the grass in a different direction from the unit. Do the same when blowing snow or leaves.

TIP! Many homeowners forget to oil their condenser at least once per year, but it is required. You’ll see that the ports here are closed with a rubber or metal cap.

If there are oil ports on your fan condenser, lubricate it annually. A rubber or metal cap is typically placed over such ports. 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! If you are choosing where to place your outdoor compressor device, try to put it in a place where there is plenty of shade. When it draws in air for cooling, it will be more efficient because it will not need to work as hard to cool down the air.

Experiencing serious problems with your HVAC during the dead of winter or heat of summer can spell big trouble. However, with the right information, such disasters can be avoided. The tips you learned here can help you to make a great HVAC choice when the time comes.
