This is the job of the HVAC system, which means that it must be kept it kept operating properly over the years. If you don’t take good care of it, you can expect costly repairs and miserable living conditions. Use these helpful tips to maintain your HVAC system in tip-top shape.

TIP! Every spring you should clean the coils and fan blades on your condenser fan. Start by turning off the power to avoid having anything move when you work on it.

If you have outside condenser units, make sure to regularly clean the debris that builds up. Things pile up after storms and damage your system. If you do not, the unit may get too hot and cause additional problems.

TIP! Make sure clippings don’t get on your outdoor units when your mowing your lawn. Instead, make sure that the grass is shooting in the opposite direction.

Cover your unit when you are mowing the lawn. Direct the grass clippings in a direction away from the HVAC unit. This also applies to leaf blowing and any other yard work that results in debris.

TIP! If your fan condenser has oil ports, you must lubricate it once per year. You can easily find the ports as they have a rubber or metal cap.

When the leaves start to fall, the HVAC equipment can be harmed. Frequently clean the fan grill when trees are shedding leaves. Otherwise, the unit will have to work unnecessarily hard.

TIP! A good place to place your compressor unit outside is in a shady spot. The cooler air entering the unit will require less work to get to the proper temperature.

If the fan on your condenser includes oil ports, they must be lubricated annually. These ports have a metal covering. Sometimes it is rubber. Put about ten drops or less of a good non-detergent SAE 20 oil into each port.

TIP! Put outdoor units in the shade if you are installing them. You save money this way because the air conditioner is now pulling in cooler air, which is easier to cool further.

Look for shade when placing a compressor outdoors. When your unit is bringing in cool air, it will not have to work as hard to cool the air as it moves it inside, boosting efficiency.

TIP! During cold weather , be sure to turn off outdoor condenser units. The unit will become damaged if you do not take care of it.

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. This simple tip will help keep the system running efficiently for many years to come.

TIP! Having a programmable thermostat installed is a money saving idea. These convenient thermostats may shave ten percent or more off of your bills, because they significantly cut energy use when you’re not around.

You now have an idea of what it takes to keep an HVAC system running great. You must stay on top of things! Use the suggestions given above so you don’t find one day that your home is either too cold or too hot.
