TIP! Every spring you should clean the coils and fan blades on your condenser fan. Before you get started, cut the power.

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, model, and if you have it, the maintenance history. The contractor will likely need all of this information.

TIP! Don’t get grass clippings on your outside unit. When you work with your lawn mower, make sure it spits the grass to the side opposite of your unit.

Be sure to regularly clean debris from external condenser units. Debris can pile up after a storm, bringing potential damage with it. It can cause the unit to overheat and break down.

TIP! Lubricate your fan condenser at least once a year. These ports are often covered by a rubber or metal cap.

When you mow your lawn, take care that you don’t get grass clippings all over your outdoor unit. Shoot the grass away from the unit. This is the same if you are using a leaf blower.

TIP! Find a place that is shaded for your compressor. If your unit is sucking in cooler air, it will have less work to do to cool that air as it sends it inside which boosts efficiency.

If there are oil ports on your fan condenser, lubricate it annually. These ports are often covered by a rubber or metal cap. Your oil should be an SAE 20. This particular oil is very lightweight and it only requires about 10 drops per port.

TIP! When it gets cold outside, the outdoor condenser unit should be turned off. Once the temperature drops into the 50s, the unit should no longer be on.

When selecting a location for an outdoor compressor, opt for a shady area, if possible. If it sucks in cool air, it will need to work less to coll the air inside, which can make it last longer.

TIP! Update the windows in your home to double-paned if you own it. Windows that are double pane keep the cool air in and can greatly reduce the amount of time your air conditioner will need to run.

You need to have a contractor review your unit twice a year. The best times to have the system checked is spring and fall, so you are sure everything is running at peak performance before the heating and cooling seasons. This type if preventative maintenance is highly necessary to ward off any expensive troubles from coming your way.

TIP! One great way to save some cash when you’re working on keeping a home cool is to install a thermostat that’s programmable. In fact, you can save as much as 10 percent on both heating and cooling when you turn your thermostat by by 10-15 percent for at least 8 hours daily.

You should now see that almost anyone can learn about HVAC systems with proper information. Do your research, and it will pay off. Use the guidelines from here to help you along.
