Turn Yourself Into A Master Of HVAC

TIP! What system do you have? You need this information to tell your contractor. Take a look at the system or the owner’s manual to find the name and model number.

HVAC units are inside many homes to provide heating and cooling. HVAC units can keep homes at comfy temperatures. You will likely need to hire a professional to install it and maintain it. Keep reading for some useful HVAC tips.

TIP! Before choosing a HVAC company find out what the company offers. A contractor will not be able to give you an accurate price without accurate information about your system.

Know what type of system you currently have before calling someone to fix it. Know the brand name and model number. It is also helpful to have the maintenance history. This information will be helpful to any contractor you hire to repair it.

TIP! Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. Shut the power off before you do anything.

Don’t hire a contractor until you know a little about what you are facing. It will be hard for a contractor to give you a price estimate over the phone if they have not seen your current system. It will be even harder if you cannot explain what you have done. So, figure out this information before anything else.

TIP! Leaves falling from trees can wreak havoc with your HVAC unit. The grill on the fan can become cluttered with debris, which will cause a serious operating deficiency.

To make sure your condenser fan works properly, keep the fan blades and the coils clean. Always shut the power off before doing any work or cleaning on the unit. Keep the exterior of the condenser unit free of debris.

TIP! If your fan condenser has oil ports, you must lubricate it once per year. These ports have a metal covering.

If the condenser for your HVAC system is located outside, make sure you clear away any debris that might settle in or around it. You can never tell when things will pile up, especially following rain or wind storms. These can wreak havoc on your units. It can get overheated, which will cause problems with the whole system.

TIP! Have the HVAC system serviced twice per year. Check into it twice a year before you head into the hot and cold months.

Be sure to clean the fan blades and coils of the condenser fan. Turn the power off so nothing moves. Secondly, pop the grill off, take the blades off and clean them as well as the actual unit.

TIP! If you can, use double-paned windows instead of single-paned ones. To keep your home cool, investing in double pane windows is a must.

As you can see, there are some things that can help you when you are dealing with HVAC units and contractors. Always make sure your unit is installed and maintained correctly. Apply these tips to optimize your overall experience.
