Tons Of Tips For Becoming A HVAC Success

TIP! Before you start calling to find someone to fix your unit, make sure you know the type of system that is installed. Write down the make, model, and any maintenance history.

It never fails. HVAC systems always seem to fail when the weather is at its coldest or hottest. Learning as much as you can about HVAC systems prior to contacting a professional will help you choose the right company. Read on for such knowledge.

TIP! Don’t hire a contractor until you know a little about what you are facing. This will make the quote process much easier.

Before calling for help, know the system you have. Write down what brand your system is along with the model number and, if they’re available, maintenance records. This helps make sure the contractor has the information they will need.

TIP! Clean the condenser coils and fan at the beginning of the year to help the unit run efficiently. Except when you do superficial cleaning, you need to always make sure the power is off on the unit.

Inspect the temps in your home before you call a service to help you with any HVAC issues you’re having. Make a list of the rooms which are comfortable and which just aren’t. 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! If there are condenser units as part of your HVAC system, clean them often as they tend to have lots of debris. After a wind or rain storm things may pile up, causing problems with your HVAC system.

Clean the condenser coils and fan at the beginning of the year to help the unit run efficiently. Except when cleaning the outside, turn the unit off when performing any type of maintenance. Clean off any leaves or debris from your external condenser unit.

TIP! Make sure your condenser fan is in good working order by wiping down the fan blades and the coils. First, the power should be turned off so things don’t move as you work.

When spring rolls around, give the condenser fan blades and coils a good clean. Be sure to turn the power off first; you don’t want anything to move. Then remove the grill, remove the blades and clean it from top to bottom gently.

TIP! When you mow your lawn, take care that you don’t get grass clippings all over your outdoor unit. Get the grass shot away from your unit.

Check to determine if the fan condenser on your HVAC system is equipped with oil ports, and if it is, be sure to lubricate every year. You will notice these ports have a rubber or metal cap covering them. Your oil should be an SAE 20. This particular oil is very lightweight and it only requires about 10 drops per port.

TIP! As the leaves are falling off the trees, your HVAC system can really take a hit. At least twice a week, you need to clean the grill of your fan.

Knowing that your HVAC system needs to be repaired or replaced can be worrisome. It doesn’t need to be that tough. With any luck, you should be prepared for any upcoming issues with your unit.
