This Great HVAC Advice Should Not Be Missed!

TIP! Before calling anyone to repair your system, know what system you have. Get the brand, model name, and if you can you should get the maintenance history out.

The comfort of one’s home depends on a properly functioning HVAC system. The cool breeze from the AC in summer and warm gush of air in winter are simply unbeatable. If your system breaks, it can be very frustrating. You must learn how to properly maintain your HVAC, and the following article has some basic info for you.

TIP! Prior to choosing an HVAC customer, try to have an idea of what you want done. A contractor cannot give an accurate estimate without looking at your system.

If you struggle with your HVAC, try touring your home before calling a professional. Make a list of the temperatures in each room and whether they are hot or cold. The contractor can probably figure out and fix the problem easier.

TIP! Cleaning the blades and coils will help the system run better. Except when cleaning the outside, turn the unit off when performing any type of maintenance.

Keep your outdoor units free of debris when you are mowing the lawn. Instead, make sure that the grass is shooting in the opposite direction. This includes grass clippings and leaves.

TIP! Clean the condenser on your debris regularly. Debris quickly gathers here, even more so if there is a storm.

As you notice the tress begin to lose their leaves, keep an eye on your outdoor condenser unit. When you notice your trees shedding, frequently clean your unit’s fan grill. A blocked unit can quickly become a broken unit.

TIP! Make sure clippings don’t get on your outdoor units when your mowing your lawn. Turn your lawnmower in the opposite direction.

Lubricate the oil ports on your condenser once each year. You will see rubber or metal caps covering the ports. Your oil should be an SAE 20. This particular oil is very lightweight and it only requires about 10 drops per port.

TIP! The operation of your HVAC system can be in danger when the tree leaves begin to fall. Make sure the fan’s grill is cleaned often during the fall.

You want to put the outdoor compressor device in a shaded area. When it draws in air for cooling, it will be more efficient because it will not need to work as hard to cool down the air.

TIP! Be sure to have twice annual HVAC system checks. The normally recommended time for HVAC system inspections is once before the peak cooling season when it gets hot and you’ll be using your AC, and once before the peak heating season, during the cold months when you’re likely to be using your heat.

In order to boost efficiency, place new outdoor units or move your current unit to a place which resides in the shade. You save money this way because the air conditioner is now pulling in cooler air, which is easier to cool further.

TIP! Once it grows cold outside, turn off your outside condenser unit. If you get into temperatures that are less than 60 degrees you need the unit to be shut off so it doesn’t get damaged.

You should now have a better idea about why proper HVAC system maintenance is necessary. If it isn’t maintained properly, it could break. Fortunately, this article has given you the foundation you need.
