Tips And Tricks For Bettering Your HVAC Experience

TIP! Before you call someone to help you fix your system, be sure to know what sort of system you have in place. Find out the brand and model and, if possible, dig out the maintenance history.

When a heating system breaks down, homeowners are not always sure what to do next. To avoid creating costly repairs, it is best for any homeowner to get acquainted with this topic. This article will help you understand everything there is to know about the HVAC.

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. Make note of which rooms are cold and which are hot.

By the end of spring, the fan blades and coils of your condenser should be thoroughly cleaned, so operation can proceed with greater efficiency. Turn off your power before doing any job like this. Remove leaves and debris from the outdoor unit.

TIP! Prior to choosing an HVAC customer, try to have an idea of what you want done. It will be difficult for an HVAC contractor to provide you with an estimate on the phone without knowing what your current setup is.

Clean your condenser’s fan blades and coil in the spring. Before you begin cleaning the unit, make sure that it is unplugged. Remove the grill and carefully clean the blades and surrounding areas.

TIP! Clean your fan and coils when the weather begins to warm. Be safe and turn off the power supply before working on your HVAC unit.

Check to determine if the fan condenser on your HVAC system is equipped with oil ports, and if it is, be sure to lubricate every year. The port usually has either a rubber or metal cap on top of it. Buy an SAE 20 product that is lightweight, and then put no more than ten drops into the ports.

Be sure to place your outdoor unit in a shady spot to maximize efficiency. As it brings in cool air to cool, you will save a lot of money.

TIP! Some fan condensers may contain oil parts, and if yours does, ensure it is lubricated at least once per year. You can easily find the ports as they have a rubber or metal cap.

Your HVAC unit requires regular maintenance at least two times per each year. It’s best to have it checked before you turn it on for the summer and again for the winter. Whether you know of problems or not, good maintenance will help you to avoid future issues.

TIP! Have the HVAC system checked twice a year at the least. This should be done in Fall and Spring to prepare it for the extreme months.

It is known that if a home’s cooling or heating fails at certain times of the year it can really be something that a homeowner dreads dealing with. However, if they were prepared for something like that happening, it won’t be so bad. The tips in this article will help you make smart decisions about your HVAC system.
