Ways to Service Your HVAC System

Turn the system on and have it cool your home. Hold a temperature gauge up to a vent and check the system's output. The temperature level gauge should read about 60 degrees. If it isn't, something should be looked at more closely.

Turn the system off for an hour and turn the blower on. In other words, adjust the temperature level on the thermostat up so that the cooling system will not come on. Then flip the switch on the fan from "auto" to "on." If the system has frozen up, as systems sometimes do, blowing warm air through it will help thaw it out. Constant freezing up is an indicator of low freon in the HVAC.

Inspect the attic duct tubes for leaks. With the fan on, you should have the ability to feel any air that is leaking out of the ducts. Run your hand along the ducts. Wrap duct tape around any cracks you find. Cover the crack several inches on either side to ensure that it will not leak again.

Hose down the outside unit and trim any shrubs that are too close. Give the unit about a 1 1/2 foot air space. All these things are meant to improve air flow. If the air flow is obstructed, it in some cases causes a device to freeze up even when there is plenty of freon. Eliminate these possibilities so you know if freon is the problem.

It is essential that the company you select is reliable so the job gets done right the first time. Contact at least three HVAC repair businesses. When you call them, ask for a copy of the license and credentials they have. Inquire about the company's insurance policies and make certain they have both liability and workers comp insurance. Do they guarantee their work? If so, this can be a very good indication. Make sure to ask how long they've been in business, and what their regular per hour fee is for service calls. Remember to not hesitate to ask the HVAC Company for references from previous clients.

Often, there can be problems that are beyond your ability to fix. Waiting till a major problem arises before you call an HVAC company can in some cases force you to choose rapidly. This can result in dealing with a low quality company that doesn't complete the repair work necessary, sub-standard work and often times, individuals can be overcharged. Numerous repairmen say they are HVAC specialists, but, have no ability to back it up.Go To This Webpage\nFor Info
