Great Ideas About Hvac That Anyone Can Use

TIP! Tour your home before calling a contractor. Make note of which rooms are cold and which are hot.

HVAC may seem challenging originally but it can be made simple. If you want to learn more, this article can help you. If you want to get into something like this, you should read this article.

TIP! Each spring, try cleaning the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan. First, the power should be turned off so things don’t move as you work.

If your HVAC system is acting up, take a tour of the house prior to calling a professional. Determine which rooms are hotter or colder than they should be. This information will help the contractor determine where the problem is and how to fix it.

TIP! Fall is a hard time on HVAC units. When you see nearby trees shedding their leaves, clean the fan grill on your unit constantly.

Before you choose someone to do HVAC work, figure out what they need to do for you. It’s hard for these contractors to give phone estimates without seeing the current system you have. In addition, you need to be able to tell the contractor what you have already tried. Make an effort to gather all information you need before making the phone call.

TIP! Check to determine if the fan condenser on your HVAC system is equipped with oil ports, and if it is, be sure to lubricate every year. Such ports tend to have coverings made of rubber or metal.

If the fan on your condenser includes oil ports, they must be lubricated annually. You’ll see that the ports here are closed with a rubber or metal cap. Choose an oil graded SAE 20, it is non-detergent and lightweight. Place about 10 drops into each of the ports, taking care that it does not overfill.

TIP! Make sure you have your HVAC system checked at least twice a year. Check into it twice a year before you head into the hot and cold months.

It’s a good idea to put your outdoor compressor in a shady area. The cooler the air that the unit is able to access, the less work it has to perform.

TIP! It is a good idea to replace single-paned windows with ones that have double panes. Having double pane windows allows your air conditioning unit to be run much less during the summer, because the cool air is kept inside the home.

Get your HVAC unit serviced two times per year. This should be done in the fall and again in the spring. Even though it may seem as nothing is wrong with the unit, a simple inspection can prove otherwise.

TIP! A good way to save money with your air conditioning is by installing a programmable thermostat. Turning down the thermostat around 10 percent for 8 hours per day can give you a 10 percent savings using the programmable thermostat.

After reading the above article, you should have a good understanding of what your HVAC system is all about. Read it as many times as necessary, until you have it down pat. Start using them as soon as possible.
