Check Out These Wonder Tips About Hvac In The Article Below

TIP! Make a circuit around your home before calling for help with your HVAC. Know what part of the house is cold and which is hot.

You do not want to avoid the maintenance of your HVAC system. You may be here because you wish to learn all you can to make your HVAC last a long time. Keep reading for some great tips.

TIP! Outdoor condenser units need to be cleaned regularly. Debris quickly gathers here, even more so if there is a storm.

Understand what you want before talking to a contractor. It will be hard for a contractor to give you a price estimate over the phone if they have not seen your current system. It can be harder if you don’t know what’s wrong. Thus, it is worthwhile to have this knowledge ahead of time.

TIP! Clean the coils on the condenser fan from time to time. For safety, always turn the power off first.

You should clean your condenser fan’s blades and coils every spring. Make sure to turn off the fan’s power first to be safe. Remove the grill and carefully clean the blades and surrounding areas.

TIP! Place your HVAC unit in the shade to boost efficiency. If the air your machine draws in is already cooler, it will require less energy to regulate before it’s filtered into your home.

Make sure that you do not cover your outdoor components with grass clippings when you are trimming the grass. When you work with your lawn mower, make sure it spits the grass to the side opposite of your unit. This also applies to blowing leaves or moving debris. Just be careful with that exterior HVAC unit.

TIP! When colder weather arrives, switch off all outdoor condenser units. If the temperature drops to under 60 degrees, you risk damage to the unit if you leave it on.

If the fan on your condenser includes oil ports, they must be lubricated annually. You’ll find these ports are covered with a metal or rubber cap. Put 10 drops of lightweight, non-detergent SAE oil in each port. Be careful not to use too much.

TIP! If you are a homeowner, or if you can get permission from your landlord, install double-paned windows in place of any single panes in your home. Double pane windows will help keep your home cooler in the summer.

To cut energy costs, you should service your cooling and heating system once a year at least. When it’s checked out, the motor will be inspected, moving parts well oiled and the level of freon adjusted if necessary. Your unit will last longer this way.

TIP! Consider getting a programmable thermostat for your AC. It changes the temperature so the system isn’t in use when it’s cooler outside or no one is home.

You have to care for your HVAC. If it fails, you’ll spend a lot to fix it. Use the tips you’ve just been given to keep yours in working order.
