Tips From The Pros For Your HVAC Needs At Home Or The Office

TIP! Tour your home before calling a contractor. Make note of which rooms are cold and which are hot.

Your home is only enjoyable when it’s comfortable. That is why it is important to keep your HVAC system healthy. Without taking care of the HVAC system, you will be uncomfortable while you wait for an expensive repair. Below, you will find some great tips that range from finding a good contractor to ensuring your unit is working properly.

TIP! Help the outside condenser fan run efficiently by cleaning the coils and fan blades before the summer starts. Turn off the power if you are going to work on your HVAC system.

Every spring you need to make sure your condenser fan’s coils and blades on the fan part are clean. Before you do so, shut off the power to ensure that none of the parts will move while you work on it. Then, take the grill off, pull the blades out, and gently clean them as well as the unit itself.

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

You must keep your HVAC systems oil ports lubricated annually. A rubber or metal cap is typically placed over such ports. 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! If there are oil ports on your fan condenser, lubricate it annually. You will notice these ports have a rubber or metal cap covering them.

Have the HVAC system serviced twice per year. Most homeowners choose to have their unit inspected during the spring and the fall months. This helps prepare for the coming weather changes of summer and winter. Although there might not be any noticeable issues, it is important to provide regular upkeep to prevent bad things from happening.

TIP! Try to choose a shady place to locate the outdoor compressor device. The cooler the air which goes in, the less work the unit will have to do.

Outdoor condenser units need to be turned off when the weather turns cold. 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. This will maximize the life of your unit.

TIP! Put your outdoor unit in places with 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.

Now you know what is involved when it comes to maintaining your HVAC system. Don’t allow things to go bad because you don’t pay attention to doing maintenance. Use the tips from above to keep it going strong, so you don’t come home one day to find your place too hot or too cold.
