Read About How To Get The HVAC Assistance You Need

Often, people feel overwhelmed trying to understand their HVAC. But, this is not necessary. In this article we will share some good tips and helpful information.

TIP! What do you need done? Know this before calling a contractor. It’s hard for these contractors to give phone estimates without seeing the current system you have.

If your HVAC doesn’t seem to be working properly, check things out yourself prior to calling in a technician. Determine which rooms are hotter or colder than they should be. Taking this step aids a contractor in figuring out what the problem is and how to repair it as quickly as possible.

TIP! Clean the condenser coils and fan at the beginning of the year to help the unit run efficiently. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit.

Before you ever begin looking for an HVAC contractor, first consider the entire job that you’ll need completed. It’s hard for these contractors to give phone estimates without seeing the current system you have. In addition, you need to be able to tell the contractor what you have already tried. Be sure to find this out ahead of time.

Outside Condenser

TIP! When choosing the area for placing an outdoor compressor device, place it in a shady area. If you have a unit taking in air that’s cooler, it won’t have to work so hard to cool air that it sends to your home.

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. In addition, always remove all debris such as leaves from the outside condenser unit.

TIP! It is very important that your HVAC system is serviced two times a year. The spring and autumn times are the best time to have it checked.

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. The fan must stay clear in order to function, and if it gets blocked, you will have to contend with problems.

TIP! When it gets cold outside, the outdoor condenser unit should be turned off. To avoid damage, units should be turned off when temperatures are below 60 degrees.

You must keep your HVAC systems oil ports lubricated annually. You can easily find the ports as they have a rubber or metal cap. You should select an SAE 20 oil since it is lightweight and does not contain detergent. Be sure to use just 10 drops or so, or your system may overfill.

TIP! If you want your energy costs to go down, have the heating an cooling system you own serviced every year at least. During this service visit, they will inspect the motor of the system, oil the moving parts and check the freon levels in the system.

HVAC issues will not be difficult for you to tackle if you remember the tips above. This is a difficult task to learn about, but you can do it if you follow the tips outlined above. Start today and in the end you’ll succeed!
