Needing service on an HVAC system during cold or hot days is a serious frustration. The key to keeping your equipment running great is maintenance and finding quality service. Read on for such knowledge.

TIP! Go through your home before you call HVAC professional. Know what part of the house is cold and which is hot.

Know what type of system you currently have before calling someone to fix it. Write down the brand and the model and have all maintenance records on hand. This information will be helpful to any contractor you hire to repair it.

TIP! It is important to have some knowledge of your present system and needs before calling a contractor. It’s hard to get an estimate since they haven’t look at your system.

Before you ever begin looking for an HVAC contractor, first consider the entire job that you’ll need completed. They won’t be able to offer you a quote if they haven’t seen your system. They also won’t be able to offer you a quote if they don’t have a detailed idea of what you want done. Know this stuff ahead of time.

TIP! Clean the condenser coils and fan at the beginning of the year to help the unit run efficiently. Prior to working on or cleaning the unit, be sure to turn off the power.

Clean the coils and blades in your condenser at the beginning of summer. Be safe and turn off the power supply before working on your HVAC unit. Additionally, it’s important to clear out leaves and other debris from the outside condenser unit.

Clean your outdoor condensers often. Particularly after bad weather, you should inspect your unit. It can also cause it to overheat.

Grass Clippings

TIP! Try to prevent debris from getting in your HVAC unit. Cleaning your unit is very important for its effectiveness.

Avoid showering your outdoor unit with grass clippings when you mow the lawn. Now so the grass clippings are shot away from your unit. The same goes for blowing leaves, so always be careful if you are moving debris near your HVAC devices.

TIP! Lubricate the oil ports on your condenser once each year. A rubber or metal cap is typically placed over such ports.

Fall is a hard time on HVAC units. Make sure the fan’s grill is cleaned often during the fall. The fan needs to be able to get proper air inside without any blockages, and extra blockage can later develop into more serious problems.

TIP! Put outdoor condensers in the shade. It will reduce the temperature of the air going into the unit, meaning that it will not have to work as hard to cool it.

The idea of having to hire an HVAC professional may seem daunting if you don’t have the right knowledge. Still, a little research goes a long way. Hopefully you are now prepared to tackle any issue that may come up with your HVAC system.
