Preparation Is Key When It Comes To HVAC

TIP! Before making that repair phone call, make sure you know the specifics about your particular system. Look for the model and brand number.

At first, trying to understand your HVAC may seem difficult. There is complicated work going on inside of any HVAC system. That is why serious repairs require trained professionals. The more you learn about it, the simpler it will be to comprehend the information.

TIP! Before contacting a repair service, do a short tour of the entire home. Find out which rooms are hot and which are cold.

Be aware of the type of system that is installed in your home prior to calling a contractor to fix it. Write down the make, model, and any maintenance history. This will facilitate the process when your contractor asks for this information.

TIP! Clean your condenser’s fan blades and coil in the spring. Turn it off first so you don’t get hurt or break something.

Make sure your condenser fan is in good working order by wiping down the fan blades and the coils. Before you do so, shut off the power to ensure that none of the parts will move while you work on it. Then, pop off its grills, pull the blades out, and begin cleaning the unit and them gently.

TIP! Be careful when doing yard work that you do not get debris on or in your unit. Shoot the grass away from the unit.

When the leaves start to fall, the HVAC equipment can be harmed. Cleaning your unit is very important for its effectiveness. An obstruction, such as a leaf, prevents the maximum amount of cool air from entering the system.

TIP! As the leaves are falling off the trees, your HVAC system can really take a hit. When you see nearby trees shedding their leaves, clean the fan grill on your unit constantly.

If your condenser comes with oil ports, you should lubricate it yearly. You can easily find the ports as they have a rubber or metal cap. Pick a type of SAE 20 oil that is non-detergent and lightweight. Place 10 or less drops into every port to avoid overfilling.

TIP! A shady spot is always a good choice for the placement of your outdoor compressor. If the unit is taking in cooler air, the efficiency will be boosted since it will not need to work as hard.

Your system should be checked twice a year. Ideally, you should have it looked at in the spring and fall so you know everything is set for the hot and cold months. Even if everything seems okay, it doesn’t hurt to check things out.

TIP! When it gets cold outside, it is necessary to turn off outdoor condenser units. If temps go below 60 you run the risk of damaging a unit that remains on.

After reading this article, you should be somewhat familiar with the HVAC unit. It can be tough to get going if you lack motivation, so keep your interest level high. The various issues will make more sense to you and you will find yourself pleased that you invested the time to learn.
