Tons Of Tips And Tricks For HVAC Success

TIP! Know what type of system you currently have before calling someone to fix it. Look for the maintenance history and brand and model.

Everyone who owns an HVAC knows that maintenance is important. HVAC systems that works poorly can cost the homeowner more money in the long run. Here are some great tips to help you begin understanding this important item in your home.

TIP! If your HVAC doesn’t seem to be working properly, check things out yourself prior to calling in a technician. Notice the temperature in each room.

Inspect the temps in your home before you call a service to help you with any HVAC issues you’re having. Find out which rooms are hot and which are cold. You can then relay this information to the technician so that they can more easily figure out what the problem is.

TIP! Before you choose someone to do HVAC work, figure out what they need to do for you. A contractor will be hard pressed to provide you with an over-the-phone estimate if unfamiliar with your system.

It is important to have some knowledge of your present system and needs before calling a contractor. This will make the quote process much easier. It can be harder if you don’t know what’s wrong. So, figure out this information before anything else.

TIP! Keep your outdoor units free of debris when you are mowing the lawn. When you work with your lawn mower, make sure it spits the grass to the side opposite of your unit.

Keep outside condenser fans running smoothly by cleaning fan blades and coils before the summer begins. Always shut off all power to your unit for any work beyond superficial cleaning. Also, be sure to clear leaves and debris from your condenser unit.

TIP! Leaves falling from trees can wreak havoc with your HVAC unit. Frequently clean the fan grill when trees are shedding leaves.

Make certain that you clean your condenser when the weather begins to warm. Don’t forget to disconnect the power first. Then, remove the grill, then remove the blades and begin the cleaning process of the blades and the unit.

TIP! You can boost the efficiency of your HVAC unit by replacing it with a new energy efficient one or moving your old one to a shady outside location. It will reduce the temperature of the air going into the unit, meaning that it will not have to work as hard to cool it.

Cover your unit when you are mowing the lawn. Make sure you shoot the clippings in the other direction from the unit. Also do this when blowing leaves or shoveling snow.

TIP! During cold weather , be sure to turn off outdoor condenser units. To avoid damage, units should be turned off when temperatures are below 60 degrees.

Lubricate the oil ports on your condenser once each year. These ports have a metal covering. Sometimes it is rubber. 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! If you are a home owner, replace whatever single pane windows you have with more efficient double-paned versions. They help cool air remain inside your home, effectively cutting back on how much you have to run your air conditioner.

Now that you have read this, you should be better prepared to keep your system running properly. You don’t want a HVAC system that costs you more money. Keep these tips in mind, because they will only help you out over the life of your system.
