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

TIP! Check the whole house before you call for help. While you are walking through the house, gauge which rooms are the coolest and which are the warmest.

If you need to get yourself an HVAC system that’s new, there may be a lot of confusing options. Which system is right for you? What size will your new HVAC system need to be to cool the room efficiently? What sort of features do you want? As these units advance and become more complicated, choosing the right one can be confusing. If you want to avoid becoming overwhelmed, the tips below should help make the process a bit simpler.

TIP! Clean your outdoor condensers often. You never know when things can pile up, especially after a windy or rainy storm, and that can throw a wrench in your system.

If your HVAC system us giving you issues, take a look around the house prior to calling a contractor. Figure out which rooms feel hot and which feel 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.

Clean the coils of your condenser fan each month. Before you clean the unit, be sure to turn off the power. If you see debris, get rid of it.

TIP! Some fan condensers may contain oil parts, and if yours does, ensure it is lubricated at least once per year. You will notice these ports have a rubber or metal cap covering them.

Clean any debris that accumulates on an external condenser unit. After a wind or rain storm things may pile up, causing problems with your system. Left unchecked, your unit is more likely to break down.

TIP! Put outdoor condensers in the shade. As it brings in cool air to cool, you will save a lot of money.

Keep your outdoor units free of debris when you are mowing the lawn. Aim your grass cuttings in a direction away from your unit. If you’re blowing leaves, this same problem can occur, so make sure you move around the unit and blow the leaves away from it.

TIP! Once it gets cold outside, you should turn off the outdoor condenser unit. If temps go below 60 you run the risk of damaging a unit that remains on.

Selecting a new HVAC system is confusing, and it can sometimes feel overwhelming. However, you are now armed with the information you need to make it an easy choice. Take the time to review these tips again, and use them when you are making your final selection so that your home becomes comfortable and enjoyable all year round.
