This Article Has Premium Tips For Your HVAC Needs

TIP! Be aware of the type of system that is installed in your home prior to calling a contractor to fix it. Know the brand name and model number.

You might not pay attention to your HVAC system in the home until it starts malfunctioning. At this point, it will be a very crucial unit. It can be hard to find a good HVAC contractor. Here are some suggestions to help you along the way.

TIP! Clean the condenser coils and fan at the beginning of the year to help the unit run efficiently. Except when cleaning the outside, turn the unit off when performing any type of maintenance.

If your HVAC system us giving you issues, take a look around the house prior to calling a contractor. Figure out which rooms are too cool or warm. That will help your repairman figure out where the problem is, and how he can fix it easily and quickly.

TIP! Each spring, try cleaning the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan. First, make sure the power is off to ensure nothing moves while you are working.

Know what work you want done before you select an HVAC contractor. A contractor will not be able to give you an accurate price without accurate information about your system. It’s even harder if you’re not able to explain what you’ve done. So, you should know this beforehand.

TIP! Do not allow grass clippings to cover the outdoor unit of your HVAC system. Turn your lawnmower in the opposite direction.

If you have units that are condensers outside of the home, keep them free of debris. 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 may begin to overheat, causing massive damage.

TIP! If the fan condenser on your unit has ports for oil, make sure you lubricate it once a year. You’ll find these ports are covered with a metal or rubber cap.

When you cut the grass, make sure your mower isn’t tossing clippings toward your outdoor units. Aim the grass in a different direction from the unit. This also applies when you blow leaves, so be very careful near your exterior HVAC units when you move debris.

TIP! If the current location of your HVAC unit outside isn’t working, try having it moved to an area with more shade. This will help ensure that the AC is pulling in cooler air, reducing the amount of work it has to do and saving you money.

If you have a fan condenser with oil ports, it needs to be lubricated every year. These ports have a metal covering. Sometimes it is rubber. Get an oil that is SAE 20 and put about 10 drops into each port, but don’t overfill it.

TIP! Make sure to have your unit serviced once a year. When it’s checked out, the motor will be inspected, moving parts well oiled and the level of freon adjusted if necessary.

Since reading this piece, you have a better education on HVAC systems. Next time you have trouble with your unit, you will now be much better prepared. These tips will help you through it all.
