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

TIP! Know the name and type of your HVAC system before looking for a repair person. Write down what brand your system is along with the model number and, if they’re available, maintenance records.

When you are looking to learn a bit about HVAC systems, these tips are a great place to start. This article is going to take you along a path to where you can learn a lot about this. Take the time to read the article and you will do well.

TIP! Before choosing an HVAC contractor, think of what you wish to have done. You might not be able to get a price quote unless you let the contractor see your current system first.

If problems arise with the HVAC system, check the entire house before contacting someone to come for repairs. Know what part of the house is cold and which is hot. Give this information to your contractor when they arrive.

TIP! Make sure clippings don’t get on your outdoor units when your mowing your lawn. Instead, make sure that the grass is shooting in the opposite direction.

When you’re trying to cut your grass, don’t cover a unit outside with the clippings. Make sure the grass does not get in your unit. If you’re blowing leaves, this same problem can occur, so make sure you move around the unit and blow the leaves away from it.

TIP! As the trees around your home lose leaves, it can cause your HVAC unit trouble. When you see nearby trees shedding their leaves, clean the fan grill on your unit constantly.

Fall is a hard time on HVAC units. Make sure the fan’s grill is cleaned often during the fall. The fan needs to have an unobstructed path for air to enter the unit, and if it becomes blocked, you will end up with many headaches with the unit.

TIP! Look for shade when placing a compressor outdoors. If you have a unit taking in air that’s cooler, it won’t have to work so hard to cool air that it sends to your home.

If the fan condenser on your unit has ports for oil, make sure you lubricate it once a year. You will see rubber or metal caps covering the ports. Look for an oil that is lightweight and then put about 10 drops inside the port. You don’t want to put in too much.

TIP! In order to keep energy costs down, make sure heating and cooling systems are services at least once per year. When it’s checked out, the motor will be inspected, moving parts well oiled and the level of freon adjusted if necessary.

Turn off your outdoor condenser when it’s getting cold. Avoid damaging the unit by turning it off when the outdoor temperature drops below 60 degrees. You’ll pay less for repairs which you follow this tip.

TIP! Don’t ever let your home temperature get dangerously high. It takes quite a while to cool a home by more than 20 degrees.

Learning about HVAC systems will require some personal motivation, but you’ll be glad that you did once it’s all through. It is important to take the time needed so you do not end up doing damage to your system by accident. Good luck and keep up the hard work!
