Before you contact people to assist you in getting your system fixed, know what kind of system you’re working with in the first place. Learn the brand and the model. This will let you know that you’re able to give the contractor the information that can help them.

TIP! A big mistake that people make is cutting the grass next to the outdoor condenser unit and allowing all of the clippings to blow inside the fan and coil. Aim your grass cuttings in a direction away from your unit.

TIP! As the temperature outside drops, remember to turn off your outdoor condenser unit. If temps go below 60 you run the risk of damaging a unit that remains on.

It’s a good idea to put your outdoor compressor in a shady area. 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.

TIP! A programmable thermostat can help you save money on your air conditioning bill. 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.

If the current location of your HVAC unit outside isn’t working, try having it moved to an area with more shade. Your air conditioner won’t have to work so hard if the air is sucks in is already cool.

TIP! Service your hearing and cooling systems once each year. Make sure the person takes a look at the motor and examines the levels of freon.

If you own your own home or have permission from your landlord, replace your single pane windows with double paned versions. Try to insulate your windows to prevent air from being lost. This also works during the cold months to keep the warm air inside.

TIP! Shut off the air conditioning if nobody is home. Sure, the temp will rise, but no one is home anyway.
