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

TIP! Before calling someone to repair your system, make sure you know what kind of HVAC system you actually have. Learn the brand and the model.

Having a well running HVAC will help make your home comfortable. In addition to the discomfort of living in a home where the heating and/or air conditioning don’t work, you’ll likely be worried about the expense of fixing your HVAC system. Therefore, it is important to know how to maintain your system, and what to do if you need to replace or repair it.

TIP! Before choosing an HVAC contractor, think of what you wish to have done. A contractor will not be able to give you an accurate price without accurate information about your system.

Before you ever begin looking for an HVAC contractor, first consider the entire job that you’ll need completed. It will be hard for a contractor to give you a price estimate over the phone if they have not seen your current system. They also won’t be able to offer you a quote if they don’t have a detailed idea of what you want done. Understand this information beforehand.

TIP! Clean the coils and blades in your condenser at the beginning of summer. Always shut the power off before doing any work or cleaning on the unit.

Clean your fan and coils when the weather begins to warm. Always turn the unit off before you do anything to it, including leaning. Keep the exterior of the condenser unit free of debris.

TIP! Clean the coils on the condenser fan from time to time. Be sure to turn the power off first; you don’t want anything to move.

Every spring you need to make sure your condenser fan’s coils and blades on the fan part are clean. Before you begin cleaning the unit, make sure that it is unplugged. Take the grill off and pull the blades out to clean them.

Grass Clippings

Don’t get grass clippings on your outside unit. Aim your grass cuttings in a direction away from your unit. This includes grass clippings and leaves.

TIP! Turn your AC off if no one is at home. Turning it off does allow the temperature to rise, but only so far.

Lubricate your condenser yearly if it has oil ports. The port usually has either a rubber or metal cap on top of it. You should select an SAE 20 oil since it is lightweight and does not contain detergent. Be sure to use just 10 drops or so, or your system may overfill.

TIP! Before you invest in any HVAC contractor, make sure you spend a good deal of time researching their reputations and credentials. Check them out at the BBB and look for reviews posted by former customers.

The HVAC system can determine your overall comfort level. If you do not maintain it properly, you may find that it breaks down. Avoid this by following the tips presented here for proper HVAC functioning.
