Get Educated About Hvac With These Simple To Follow Tips

TIP! Before calling someone to repair your system, make sure you know what kind of HVAC system you actually have. Learn the brand, model, and if you have it, the maintenance history.

Nothing is worse than your HVAC systems going out on a bitterly cold day or a sweltering hot day. You must find the right people that can repair or install old units. To do this, you must learn all that you can. Read on to do just that.

Fan Blades

TIP! When you cut the grass, don’t cover the outdoor units with their clippings. Now so the grass clippings are shot away from your unit.

Clean the fan blades and coils prior to summertime. Before you do clean the coils and fan blades, always take the precaution of turning off all power to the unit. Keep the exterior of the condenser unit free of debris.

TIP! Lubricate your condenser yearly if it has oil ports. A rubber or metal cap is typically placed over such ports.

Be sure to clean the fan blades and coils of the condenser fan. Make sure to turn off the fan’s power first to be safe. Then remove the grill, remove the blades and clean it from top to bottom gently.

TIP! Be sure to place your outdoor unit in a shady spot to maximize efficiency. As your air conditioner sucks in cool air, little will have to be done to cool it any further, saving you a ton on your energy bills.

As the temperature outside drops, remember to turn off your outdoor condenser unit. To prevent damage, turn off your unit if the outside temperature is less than 60 degrees. This will help keep it in good condition for many years.

TIP! You need to have a contractor review your unit twice a year. This should be checked often for debris and malfunctions.

A programmable thermostat can help you save money on your air conditioning bill. A thermostat that’s programmable is going to save you around ten percent on the heating and cooling costs you have to pay when you turn it back about fifteen percent for a part of the day. Also, you’ll find that you can program your thermostat from a computer or anything connected to the web.

TIP! As the temperature outside drops, remember to turn off your outdoor condenser unit. This should be done when the temperature drops below 60ºF to avoid damage.

To keep your system running smoothly have your system serviced once a year. The contractor should oil the parts that move and check the motor and freon levels. Your unit will last longer this way.

TIP! Never allow your home to get dangerously hot inside. Expect an air conditioning unit to drop the temperature down 20 degrees within a short amount of time.

The prospect of having to engage the services of an HVAC professional can be daunting without the right information. However, armed with information, the process doesn’t have to be difficult. Hopefully you are now prepared to take all of this on so that you can work on this if you have problems in the future.
