Read Some Easy Tips For HVAC Advice That Shouldn’t Be Missed

TIP! Know what type of system you currently have before calling someone to fix it. Take a look at the system or the owner’s manual to find the name and model number.

The HVAC system you have in your house is not something you know about until it no longer works. Of course then it becomes extremely important to fix. Selecting the best contractor to fix or install an HVAC need not be intimidating. This article will guide you through this process.

TIP! Know what work you want done before you select an HVAC contractor. It will be hard for a contractor to give you a price estimate over the phone if they have not seen your current system.

Before calling for help, know the system you have. Know what the manufacturer’s name is, which particular model you have and what’s gone on with the unit in the past. This will ensure that you can give your new contractor all the information they need.

TIP! Help the outside condenser fan run efficiently by cleaning the coils and fan blades before the summer starts. Always turn the unit off before you do anything to it, including leaning.

If your HVAC is giving you problems, tour your home before calling a technician. Figure out which rooms are too cool or warm. That way, the contractor will have an easier time diagnosing the problem and repairing it fast.

TIP! Each spring, clean the fan blades and coils on your condenser. Be sure to turn the power off first; you don’t want anything to move.

Clean the debris from outside units often. You don’t know when things are going to pile up, like right after it’s windy or rains, and that can ruin your system. It can get overheated, which will cause problems with the whole system.

TIP! During the fall, leaves can gather around your HVAC. Make certain you are cleaning the fan grill often if trees nearby have leaves that are falling.

If you have oil ports as part of the fan condenser, annual lubrication is key. They generally have a rubber or metal cap on them. Choose an oil graded SAE 20, it is non-detergent and lightweight. Place about 10 drops into each of the ports, taking care that it does not overfill.

TIP! Lubricate your fan condenser if it has oil ports. They are usually fitted with a rubber or metal cap.

During cold weather , be sure to turn off outdoor condenser units. If the temperature drops to under 60 degrees, you risk damage to the unit if you leave it on. This can keep your HVAC running and can save you money on repairs.

TIP! It’s a good idea to put your outdoor compressor in a shady area. If it sucks in cool air, it will need to work less to coll the air inside, which can make it last longer.

Since you just read a great article telling your about different HVAC units, you should have a good understanding of it all. Next time you have trouble with your unit, you will now be much better prepared. Keep these tips in mind to treat your HVAC system right.
