Save Cash By Getting Your HVAC Work Done The Right Way

TIP! Before making that repair phone call, make sure you know the specifics about your particular system. Write down the make, model, and any maintenance history.

If you want to increase your understanding of HVAC maintenance, you are in the right place. This article can help you get more acquainted with the process of keeping your HVAC up and running properly. Read over it carefully, and you will find some valuable information.

TIP! If your HVAC system is acting up, take a tour of the house prior to calling a professional. Determine which rooms feel cold and which feel hot.

Be aware of the type of system that is installed in your home prior to calling a contractor to fix it. Look for the model and brand number. If you have to have someone come out to repair the unit, you will be able to help the contractor understand more about what is going on.

TIP! Make sure that you regularly clean debris that might build up on external condenser units. After a wind or rain storm things may pile up, causing problems with your system.

Clean your fan and coils when the weather begins to warm. The power to the unit should be removed before you begin any maintenance, even cleaning. Additionally, it’s important to clear out leaves and other debris from the outside condenser unit.

TIP! When you’re trying to cut your grass, don’t cover a unit outside with the clippings. Make sure you shoot the clippings in the other direction from the unit.

If you have units that are condensers outside of the home, keep them free of debris. Falling leaves and wind or rain may cause debris to reduce the efficiency of your unit. It may begin to overheat, causing massive damage.

TIP! As the leaves are falling off the trees, your HVAC system can really take a hit. Be sure to clean your fan grill frequently when trees nearby are shedding.

Be careful when doing yard work that you do not get debris on or in your unit. Now so the grass clippings are shot away from your unit. Do the same when blowing snow or leaves.

TIP! It is very important that your HVAC system is serviced two times a year. Most homeowners choose to have their unit inspected during the spring and the fall months.

If there are oil ports on your fan condenser, lubricate it annually. They generally have a rubber or metal cap on them. Get an oil that is SAE 20 and put about 10 drops into each port, but don’t overfill it.

TIP! As the temperature outside drops, remember to turn off your outdoor condenser unit. If temps go below 60 you run the risk of damaging a unit that remains on.

You can learn how to maintain your system and keep it running right. It’s just something you need to take your time with so you don’t break anything on accident or something of that nature. Best wishes as you begin your journey.
