When you are looking to learn a bit about HVAC systems, these tips are a great place to start. Here is some great information that you need to know. Take the time to read along and you will so fine.
When you start making calls to get someone to help with your HVAC system, it’s a good idea to know what system you have before that phone call. Look for the model and brand number. This will help you give the new contractor the necessary information.
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. You need to know how to describe any issues. Understand this information beforehand.
Each spring it’s time to clean the inside of your condenser unit, including the fan and the sensitive coil. For safety, always turn the power off first. Next, remove the grill, take the blades and clean them gently, then clean the actual unit.
Avoid showering your outdoor unit with grass clippings when you mow the lawn. Get the grass shot away from your unit. This also applies to blowing leaves or moving debris. Just be careful with that exterior HVAC unit.
Lubricate your fan condenser if it has oil ports. Such ports tend to have coverings made of rubber or metal. Get an oil that is SAE 20 and put about 10 drops into each port, but don’t overfill it.
Your system should be checked twice a year. This should be done in Fall and Spring to prepare it for the extreme months. Even if nothing seems wrong, checking it out can help you find and fix potential issues.
When colder weather arrives, switch off all outdoor condenser units. The unit will become damaged if you do not take care of it. Doing this keeps your system working well for years and saves you from having to spend money to repair it.
Having a programmable thermostat installed is a money saving idea. These convenient thermostats may shave ten percent or more off of your bills, because they significantly cut energy use when you’re not around. Some programmable thermostats can even be controlled from a PC or other device.
Look for calculators online to help you determine the size of unit you need for your home. If you purchase something too large, you will be throwing away money. Check the manufacturer’s handbook to see what amount of space the unit can effectively cool.
It is a very easy process to get an HVAC. It’s just something you need to take your time with so you don’t break anything on accident or something of that nature. Good luck and keep up the hard work!
