Easy To Understand Tips And Advice About Hvac

TIP! Know what you need before you hire a contractor. You can’t get a decent estimate over a telephone, so disregard those numbers and wait until they view your system.

You think anything dealing with HVAC is complicated. There is some truth to the idea that HVAC systems are complicated. But, some helpful tips may be all that is needed.

Before calling for help, know the system you have. Learn the brand and the model. This helps make sure the contractor has the information they will need.

TIP! When you’re trying to cut your grass, don’t cover a unit outside with the clippings. Direct the grass clippings in a direction away from the HVAC unit.

Before you hire an HVAC contractor, have some sort of idea of the work that needs to be done. If you can’t describe the problem, you may not get an accurate quote. They need to come look at the unit. It’s important to know this beforehand.

TIP! Try to prevent debris from getting in your HVAC unit. Make sure the fan’s grill is cleaned often during the fall.

If the condenser for your HVAC system is located outside, make sure you clear away any debris that might settle in or around it. You can never tell when things will pile up, especially following rain or wind storms. These can wreak havoc on your units. It could overheat and cause a disaster with your unit.

TIP! When you are choosing a location for the outdoor compressor unit, it’s preferable to use a shaded area. When it draws in air for cooling, it will be more efficient because it will not need to work as hard to cool down the air.

If there are oil ports on your fan condenser, lubricate it annually. You will see rubber or metal caps covering the ports. Put 10 drops of lightweight, non-detergent SAE oil in each port. Be careful not to use too much.

It’s a good idea to put your outdoor compressor in a shady area. In this way, it will be cooling air that is already somewhat cooled. This saves energy.

TIP! Putting in a programmable thermostat is a smart way to cut back on air-conditioning costs. This will help you to keep the temperature at optimal levels.

Once it gets cold outside, you should turn off the outdoor condenser unit. If the temperature drops to under 60 degrees, you risk damage to the unit if you leave it on. Your system will work longer for you this way.

TIP! When you are away from home, adjust your thermostat to a money saving temperature. When you turn it off, the house heats up, but only to a certain threshold.

Ideally, you feel more informed about how your HVAC works. It can be hard to get going without motivation, so take all of this information into account as you get started. You will be happy that you did.
