TIP! Before you start calling to find someone to fix your unit, make sure you know the type of system that is installed. Find out the brand and model and, if possible, dig out the maintenance history.

Good maintenance is important for an HVAC unit. A HVAC system that does no function properly can cost a ton of money. Use the tips below to help keep your HVAC system in its best working condition.

TIP! If you’ve been having trouble with an HVAC system, look around your home before calling in people to help. Determine which rooms are hotter or colder than they should be.

Prior to putting in a service call on your HVAC, be able to identify it. Look for the maintenance history and brand and model. This will facilitate the process when your contractor asks for this information.

TIP! Before choosing an HVAC contractor, think of what you wish to have done. They won’t be able to offer you a quote if they haven’t seen your system.

Each spring it’s time to clean the inside of your condenser unit, including the fan and the sensitive coil. Don’t forget to disconnect the power first. Then remove the grill, remove the blades and clean it from top to bottom gently.

TIP! If the outside of your home has condenser units, ensure they are constantly cleaned. Things tend to pile up around these units, especially after storms come through, which could cause problems to your system.

As the leaves are falling off the trees, your HVAC system can really take a hit. Make sure you clean out your fan grill often once nearby trees start shedding their leaves. The fan must stay clear in order to function, and if it gets blocked, you will have to contend with problems.

TIP! Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. Before you get started, cut the power.

Lubricate your fan condenser if it has oil ports. You can easily find the ports as they have a rubber or metal cap. Chose SAE 20 oil, which has been proven to be the most effective.

You want to put the outdoor compressor device in a shaded area. In this way, it will be cooling air that is already somewhat cooled. This saves energy.

TIP! Get your HVAC unit serviced two times per year. Check into it twice a year before you head into the hot and cold months.

Consumers are usually advised to have their HVAC systems inspected twice a year. Ideally, you should have it looked at in the spring and fall so you know everything is set for the hot and cold months. This will help you to avoid problems.

TIP! Make use of a thermostat when you are installing an HVAC. It changes the temperature so the system isn’t in use when it’s cooler outside or no one is home.

Hopefully, you now feel a little more confident in your HVAC knowledge. A faulty HVAC unit is every homeowner’s worst nightmare. It can cost a lot of money to repair and eat up a lot of time. Use these tips whenever you encounter a problem.
