Many people forget about their HVAC systems until they all the sudden quit working. Once that happens, fixing the issue quickly is critical. It can be confusing to understand which company should hire to work on your system. The tips listed here will help you go through the process.

TIP! Before you choose an HVAC contractor, have an idea in your mind of what needs to be done. You can’t get a decent estimate over a telephone, so disregard those numbers and wait until they view your system.

Know the name and type of your HVAC system before looking for a repair person. Learn the brand, model, and if you have it, the maintenance history. This will help make sure that the contractor you hire has all the necessary information.

TIP! To make sure your condenser fan works properly, keep the fan blades and the coils clean. Before you clean the surface, be sure to turn off the power.

If your HVAC is giving you problems, tour your home before calling a technician. Make a list of the temperatures in each room and whether they are hot or cold. If you do this, it will be a great help to the future contractor, who will now be able to quickly locate the problem issue.

TIP! Each spring it’s time to clean the inside of your condenser unit, including the fan and the sensitive coil. First, turn the power off so nothing moves when you’re working with it.

Clean your fan blades and coils each spring to ensure that your condenser fan operates at it’s best. Always make sure you shut off the power before you do any work on the unit other than superficial cleaning. In addition, always remove all debris such as leaves from the outside condenser unit.

Outdoor condenser units need to be cleaned regularly. Things pile up after storms and damage your system. It will damage the system by overheating.

TIP! Find a place that is shaded for your compressor. If the unit is taking in cooler air, the efficiency will be boosted since it will not need to work as hard.

Lubricate your condenser yearly if it has oil ports. You can easily find the ports as they have a rubber or metal cap. Choose an oil graded SAE 20, it is non-detergent and lightweight. Place about 10 drops into each of the ports, taking care that it does not overfill.

TIP! Be sure to place your outdoor unit in a shady spot to maximize efficiency. If your air conditioner is able to constantly suck in cool air, it won’t have to work overtime to cool your space, which can in turn save you money on your electricity bills.
