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. Get information on the make and model, plus if you have information on the history of maintenance, that will help, too.

If you want to increase your understanding of HVAC maintenance, you are in the right place. This article will help you learn the things you need to know about this. Take the time to read the article and you will do well.

TIP! If your HVAC doesn’t seem to be working properly, check things out yourself prior to calling in a technician. Note which rooms are hot and which are cold.

Before selecting a HVAC repairman, know what you need done. It’s hard to get an estimate since they haven’t look at your system. It will be even harder if you cannot explain what you have done. So, you should know this beforehand.

TIP! Cleaning the blades and coils will help the system run better. Before you do clean the coils and fan blades, always take the precaution of turning off all power to the unit.

Clean the coils and blades in your condenser at the beginning of summer. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit. Also, it is important to clear the outside condenser unit from any debris that maybe trapped inside.

TIP! Be sure to regularly clean debris from external condenser units. Debris quickly gathers here, even more so if there is a storm.

Cover your unit when you are mowing the lawn. Make certain the debris goes away from it. This also applies when you blow leaves, so be very careful near your exterior HVAC units when you move debris.

TIP! If trees are losing leaves around your home, this can impact your HVAC unit. Make sure you clean out your fan grill often once nearby trees start shedding their leaves.

The HVAC unit in your home can become damaged from falling leaves. Cleaning your unit is very important for its effectiveness. Otherwise, the unit will have to work unnecessarily hard.

TIP! Put outdoor units in the shade if you are installing them. You save money this way because the air conditioner is now pulling in cooler air, which is easier to cool further.

If you have oil ports as part of the fan condenser, annual lubrication is key. They are usually fitted with a rubber or metal cap. Pick out a SAE 20 type of oil because it has no detergent, is lightweight, and you should put around 10 drops in the ports but make it to where they don’t get too full.

TIP! Make sure you have your HVAC system checked at least twice a year. Checks in the spring as well as in autumn are the best.

It is no very difficult to understand HVAC if you have the information provided in this article. The key is to take enough time and do things right. Best of luck to you in all your HVAC endeavors.
