Your HVAC Should Be Working For You, Here’s How

TIP! Before you call someone to help you fix your system, be sure to know what sort of system you have in place. Learn the brand and the model.

Not much is more stressful than having a broken system in winter or summer. The more you know on this subject, the easier it will be to find an expert to help you. Read on and you will get the information that you need.

TIP! Before you choose an HVAC contractor, have an idea in your mind of what needs to be done. It will be difficult for an HVAC contractor to provide you with an estimate on the phone without knowing what your current setup is.

If you have some problems with the HVAC system, check out your home before calling a contractor. Make a list of the rooms which are comfortable and which just aren’t. This gives the repairer a starting point to work from.

TIP! Clean your fan and coils when the weather begins to warm. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit.

Think about what improvements you want made before picking an HVAC contractor. This will make the quote process much easier. They need to come look at the unit. Understand this information beforehand.

TIP! When spring rolls around, give the condenser fan blades and coils a good clean. Before you begin cleaning the unit, make sure that it is unplugged.

Before the summer you should clean out your condenser fan’s blades and coils. Before you clean the surface, be sure to turn off the power. Additionally, remove leaves and any other debris from the outside condenser unit.

TIP! A big mistake that people make is cutting the grass next to the outdoor condenser unit and allowing all of the clippings to blow inside the fan and coil. Shoot grass the other way.

If you have units that are condensers outside of the home, keep them free of debris. Your HVAC system may run into problems after storms if it is surrounded by debris. It may even overheat, which can ruin your system.

TIP! The HVAC unit in your home can become damaged from falling leaves. The grill on the fan can become cluttered with debris, which will cause a serious operating deficiency.

When the trees are losing their leaves, your HVAC unit can suffer. Cleaning your unit is very important for its effectiveness. The fan must not have anything in the way so that air can flow into it, and if it is clogged, you’ll have a lot of headaches eventually.

TIP! If you can choose the place where your outdoor compressor goes, pick a spot with lots of shade. If the unit is taking in cooler air, the efficiency will be boosted since it will not need to work as hard.

Lubricate your fan condenser at least once a year. You’ll find these ports are covered with a metal or rubber cap. Choose an oil graded SAE 20, it is non-detergent and lightweight. Place about 10 drops into each of the ports, taking care that it does not overfill.

TIP! Put outdoor units in the shade if you are installing them. If the air your machine draws in is already cooler, it will require less energy to regulate before it’s filtered into your home.

Engaging in HVAC professional services may be overwhelming without proper information. It doesn’t need to be that tough. You should be ready to run to the next HVAC service and get the job done now that you’ve read this article.
