Expert Tips And Tricks For HVAC Success

TIP! If you have condenser units outside your home, be sure to clean out the debris from them often. Wind can pile up all sorts of debris against its grill.

Owning an HVAC system can help to keep your house comfortable year round. Many homes already have this type of system in place, but they may need to be upgraded or even replaced at some point. Understanding when to do this is key. Keep reading for what you need to know.

TIP! Make sure that you do not cover your outdoor components with grass clippings when you are trimming the grass. Turn your lawnmower in the opposite direction.

Don’t hire a contractor until you know a little about what you are facing. It’s hard for these contractors to give phone estimates without seeing the current system you have. It will be way more hard if you can’t figure out what they need to do. Having this information handy will make the process much smoother.

TIP! Some fan condensers may contain oil parts, and if yours does, ensure it is lubricated at least once per year. The port usually has either a rubber or metal cap on top of it.

In order to keep your outside condenser fan running efficiently, make sure the coils and the fan blades are cleaned before the cooling season begins. Prior to working on or cleaning the unit, be sure to turn off the power. Also, it is important to clear the outside condenser unit from any debris that maybe trapped inside.

Begin Cleaning

TIP! Place your HVAC unit in the shade to boost efficiency. You save money this way because the air conditioner is now pulling in cooler air, which is easier to cool further.

You should clean your condenser fan’s blades and coils every spring. Before you begin cleaning the unit, make sure that it is unplugged. Then, pop off its grills, pull the blades out, and begin cleaning the unit and them gently.

TIP! Once it gets cold outside, you should turn off the outdoor condenser unit. If the temperature outside is less than 60ºF, be sure to turn off the unit so that you don’t damage it.

Keep your outdoor units free of debris when your cutting grass. Instead, make sure that the grass is shooting in the opposite direction. This also applies to leaf blowing and any other yard work that results in debris.

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. With this device installed, it can help you save money on your energy bills by you having the power to regulate the temperature throughout the day.

Put outdoor units in the shade if you are installing them. As you get your air conditioner to suck in cool air it won’t have to do too much work to cool it which saves you some money.

TIP! To keep your system running smoothly have your system serviced once a year. During a maintenance visit, professionals can help by inspecting the system’s motor, oil the different moving parts as well as check the system’s freon levels.

Locating a good HVAC unit is crucial, as it is an investment. When you need to get a new system or seek repairs, keep this guidance in mind. They will aid you in making wise decisions in all things HVAC.
