The More You Know, The More Of A Master Of HVAC You’ll Be

TIP! Be aware of the type of system that is installed in your home prior to calling a contractor to fix it. Get the brand, model name, and if you can you should get the maintenance history out.

Many people do not know about HVAC systems and contractors. However, most homes have an HVAC system and someone has to perform the maintenance and repairs. The good news for you is that you can use the advice presented below to help you figure out how to tackle an HVAC issue.

TIP! If you are having issues with your HVAC, do a tour of your house before you call in help. Find out which rooms are hot and which are cold.

Before making that repair phone call, make sure you know the specifics about your particular system. Take a look at the system or the owner’s manual to find the name and model number. This information will be helpful to any contractor you hire to repair it.

TIP! Clean the fan blades and coils prior to summertime. Turn off the power if you are going to work on your HVAC system.

When spring rolls around, give the condenser fan blades and coils a good clean. Before you do anything, however, turn the power off. After you have turned the power off, you simply remove the grill and the blades to perform a gentle cleansing.

TIP! Make sure your condenser fan is in good working order by wiping down the fan blades and the coils. Before you begin cleaning the unit, make sure that it is unplugged.

As the trees around your home lose leaves, it can cause your HVAC unit trouble. When you notice your trees shedding, frequently clean your unit’s fan grill. The fan needs to have an unobstructed path for air to enter the unit, and if it becomes blocked, you will end up with many headaches with the unit.

TIP! Keep your outdoor units free of debris when your cutting grass. Make certain the debris goes away from it.

If there are oil ports on your fan condenser, lubricate it annually. Such ports tend to have coverings made of rubber or metal. Pick out a SAE 20 type of oil because it has no detergent, is lightweight, and you should put around 10 drops in the ports but make it to where they don’t get too full.

TIP! If you want to know where you should put an outdoor compressor, you should place it somewhere where there is a lot of shade. The cooler air that the unit can suck in, the less work it will need to do to further cool the air.

It can be very difficult for a homeowner to deal with a malfunctioning HVAC system. However, if proper research is done prior to situations that demand attention, the process becomes much simpler. Keep the information from this article handy so you can solve and issues that arise quickly and at a reasonable cost.
