Successful HVAC Can Be At Your Fingertips

TIP! Prior to putting in a service call on your HVAC, be able to identify it. Know what the manufacturer’s name is, which particular model you have and what’s gone on with the unit in the past.

HVAC systems are often ignored until they break. At the point of breakdown, however, it is impossible to ignore. It can be hard to find a good HVAC contractor. This article will help you out.

TIP! If you are having issues with your HVAC, do a tour of your house before you call in help. Pay attention to which areas of the house are warm and which ones are cool.

Clean the coils and blades in your condenser at the beginning of summer. Always make sure you shut off the power before you do any work on the unit other than superficial cleaning. Clean the outdoor condenser as well.

TIP! Make sure your condenser fan is in good working order by wiping down the fan blades and the coils. First, turn the power off so nothing moves when you’re working with it.

Clean the fan blades and coils in your condenser each spring. Before you begin cleaning the unit, make sure that it is unplugged. Then remove the grill, remove the blades and clean it from top to bottom gently.

TIP! Don’t get grass clippings on your outside unit. Aim the grass in a different direction from the unit.

Leaves and debris can damage your system. During this time of year, check and clear off the fan grill on your unit on a regular basis. Your fan needs an unobstructed way to get air inside, and the more blocked up it becomes, the more headaches will develop for you with the system.

TIP! Many homeowners forget to oil their condenser at least once per year, but it is required. You can find these ports covered with rubber or metal caps.

If the fan condenser on your unit has ports for oil, make sure you lubricate it once a year. These are usually covered with rubber or metal caps. 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 possible, put your HVAC in a shaded area if it is outside. This will ensure cool air is sucked in, meaning less cooling must be done by the unit.

Your HVAC system should be checked a few times a year. Checks in the spring as well as in autumn are the best. Even if everything seems fine, check things out to find potential problems.

TIP! You can keep energy costs in your home lower by choosing to have professional maintenance done on your HVAC unit. An HVAC specialist will inspect the entire system, including the oil, the motor, and the ducts.

If nobody is home, turn off the air conditioner to save money. Your home will become somewhat warmer during this time. The longer the unit stays on, the more it ends up costing you in energy bills.

TIP! Save energy use and money by turning off the air conditioner if there is nobody home. You may want to turn your unit off if your house will not become extremely hot or cold.

You have now increased your knowledge regarding HVAC systems. Whenever you need work done on your unit, or need to have the entire system replaced, you now know the best way to handle the situation. Find the correct system by using this advice.
