Tips And Tricks For Bettering Your HVAC Experience

TIP! Before an HVAC expert comes to your home to do any repair work, walk around the home and check out the temps in every room. Pay attention to which areas of the house are warm and which ones are cool.

Many people today want their homes to have HVAC units. These units make sure homes stay at a temperature that is comfortable. However, because it is a complicated piece of equipment, it usually needs to be put in by a professional. It also should be maintained over time. Keep reading for great tips on keeping an HVAC system running well.

TIP! What do you need done? Know this before calling a contractor. It will be difficult for an HVAC contractor to provide you with an estimate on the phone without knowing what your current setup is.

Before calling someone to repair your system, make sure you know what kind of HVAC system you actually have. Write down the make, model, and any maintenance history. This makes sure your contractor will be sufficiently prepared.

TIP! Clean any debris that accumulates on an external condenser unit. 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.

If you have condenser units outside your home, be sure to clean out the debris from them often. Things tend to pile up around these units, especially after storms come through, which could cause problems to your system. Debris like this can cause it to overheat, which could be detrimental to your 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.

Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. Before you do anything, however, turn the power off. Take the grill off and pull the blades out to clean them.

TIP! If possible, put your HVAC in a shaded area if it is outside. When your unit sucks in cooler air, then much less is required to cool it further, which saves you money on energy bills.

Be careful when doing yard work that you do not get debris on or in your unit. Instead, make sure that the grass is shooting in the opposite direction. This also applies when you blow leaves, so be very careful near your exterior HVAC units when you move debris.

TIP! Get your HVAC unit serviced two times per year. The spring and autumn times are the best time to have it checked.

Many homeowners forget to oil their condenser at least once per year, but it is required. They generally have a rubber or metal cap on them. Your oil should be an SAE 20. This particular oil is very lightweight and it only requires about 10 drops per port.

TIP! If possible, your single pane windows should be replaced with double-paned ones. To keep your home cool, investing in double pane windows is a must.

There are several things you need to know when you’re dealing with heating and cooling systems. It is important that installation and maintenance is done properly. Put this advice to good use so that you have minimal issues in the future.
