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

The information involved may appear complex on first glance. If you take your time, it’s not that hard. It will help you to be more prepared.

TIP! Be sure to clean the fan blades and coils of the condenser fan. Turn the power off so nothing moves.

Before calling for help, know the system you have. Know the brand name and model number. It is also helpful to have the maintenance history. This will ensure that you can give your new contractor all the information they need.

TIP! HVAC units may suffer when leaves are falling off the trees. When you notice your trees shedding, frequently clean your unit’s fan grill.

If you are having issues with your HVAC, do a tour of your house before you call in help. While you are walking through the house, gauge which rooms are the coolest and which are the warmest. Give this information to your contractor when they arrive.

TIP! If you need to decide the best place to put your outdoor compressor unit, consider putting it in a location that is in the shade. If your unit is sucking in cooler air, it will have less work to do to cool that air as it sends it inside which boosts efficiency.

Clean the coils of your condenser fan each month. Before you do clean the coils and fan blades, always take the precaution of turning off all power to the unit. Leaves and debris can build up inside the unit and cause damage.

TIP! Your system should be checked twice a year. The best time of year to have the system checked is right before the weather begins to change.

Don’t let your outdoor HVAC units get smothered with clippings anytime you mow the yard. Shoot grass the other way. This is the same if you are using a leaf blower.

TIP! Turn off outdoor condenser units when weather turns cold. To avoid damage, units should be turned off when temperatures are below 60 degrees.

When the trees are losing their leaves, your HVAC unit can suffer. Clean the fan grill often when leaves are falling. 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! Having a programmable thermostat installed is a money saving idea. Such thermostats help you save around ten percent when it comes to energy costs.

A good place to place your compressor unit outside is in a shady spot. The cooler air that the unit can suck in, the less work it will need to do to further cool the air.

TIP! You can get ice in your air conditioner. Many times people think there is a plumbing leak, but instead the drain line has water that is frozen.

Having the break down of information should have helped you understand your unit better. Everything will work well for you as long as you follow the advice given here. Keep up the research and you may be able to create a future in HVAC repairs.
