All The HVAC Advice You Need To Know To Save Money

TIP! Clean your condenser’s fan blades and coils come spring. Always turn the unit off before you do anything to it, including leaning.

One of the many tasks of a homeowner is keeping the HVAC unit up and functioning properly. Unfortunately, not all homeowners know how to do this. To learn more, you have to stay on top of your game. This article can help you with that.

TIP! Clean your outdoor condensers often. You never know when things can pile up, especially after a windy or rainy storm, and that can throw a wrench in your system.

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. Learn the brand, model, and if you have it, the maintenance history. This helps make sure the contractor has the information they will need.

TIP! Clean the coils on the condenser fan from time to time. Don’t forget to disconnect the power first.

Clean your fan blades and coils each spring to ensure that your condenser fan operates at it’s best. Always shut off all power to your unit for any work beyond superficial cleaning. Remove leaves and debris from the condenser outside.

TIP! When you are cutting the grass, be sure not to cover your outdoor units with clippings. Aim the grass clippings in the other direction.

Every spring you need to make sure your condenser fan’s coils and blades on the fan part are clean. First, turn off the power so that nothing will move as you are working on it. Pull out each of the blades and clean them one by one.

TIP! As the trees around your home lose leaves, it can cause your HVAC unit trouble. Make sure the unit’s fan grill is cleaned frequently when the leaves begin to fall.

Lubricate the oil ports on your condenser once each year. The port usually has either a rubber or metal cap on top of it. Get an oil that is SAE 20 and put about 10 drops into each port, but don’t overfill it.

TIP! If the fan condenser on your unit has ports for oil, make sure you lubricate it once a year. You’ll see that the ports here are closed with a rubber or metal cap.

You want to put the outdoor compressor device in a shaded area. The unit will operate more efficiently to cool your home if the intake air is cooler to begin with.

TIP! In order for your new unit to be as efficient as possible, or to make older units more efficient, make sure it’s put in a shaded area. You save money this way because the air conditioner is now pulling in cooler air, which is easier to cool further.

A good heating and cooling system is critical to maintaining a comfortable home. However, if you don’t hire the right contractor, you can end up frustrated when your system stops working. Luckily, you know have the information to help prevent this from happening.
