What You Need To Learn Before Calling An HVAC Tech For Help

TIP! Know what type of system you currently have before calling someone to fix it. Get the brand, model name, and if you can you should get the maintenance history out.

Your HVAC unit is vital to your home. You are probably here because you want to learn about what you can do in order to help the HVAC system last a very long time. The following article has great suggestions for you!

TIP! Clean the coils and blades in your condenser at the beginning of summer. Before you do clean the coils and fan blades, always take the precaution of turning off all power to the unit.

Before calling anyone to repair your system, know what system you have. Get information on the make and model, plus if you have information on the history of maintenance, that will help, too. This will ensure that you can give your new contractor all the information they need.

Clean the debris off your outdoor condenser unit. Falling leaves and wind or rain may cause debris to reduce the efficiency of your unit. This can lead to overheating.

TIP! Keep your outdoor units free of debris when your cutting grass. Make certain the debris goes away from it.

Clean the fan blades and coils in your condenser each spring. First, turn the power off so nothing moves when you’re working with it. Then remove the grill, remove the blades and clean it from top to bottom gently.

TIP! A good place to place your compressor unit outside is in a shady spot. When the unit sucks in cooler air, then less work is required to cool it further which in turn boosts the units efficiency.

When the leaves start to fall, the HVAC equipment can be harmed. Make sure the unit’s fan grill is cleaned frequently when the leaves begin to fall. Your fan needs an unobstructed way to get air inside, and the more blocked up it becomes, the more headaches will develop for you with the system.

TIP! Put your outdoor unit in places with shade. The unit will have to do less work cooling this air.

If you have oil ports as part of the fan condenser, annual lubrication is key. These ports are typically covered with caps made of metal or rubber. Put about ten drops or less of a good non-detergent SAE 20 oil into each port.

Hvac System

TIP! When it gets cold outside, turn off the outdoor condensers. The unit will become damaged if you do not take care of it.

Thinking about and maintaining your HVAC system can be a great way to keep it functioning. When your HVAC system breaks, it is going to cost you a lot. The purpose of the suggestions above is to help you prevent expensive repairs to your HVAC system.
