How To Get Your HVAC To Work For You

It is important to educate yourself on your HVAC system. Here is some great information that you need to know. Peruse it carefully, and glean valuable advice.

TIP! Keep outside condenser fans running smoothly by cleaning fan blades and coils before the summer begins. Before you do clean the coils and fan blades, always take the precaution of turning off all power to the unit.

Check out the system that you have before you call a professional. Look for the model and brand number. This helps make sure the contractor has the information they will need.

TIP! Clean any debris that accumulates on an external condenser unit. Leaves and debris can accumulate quickly, particularly following storms, and that can cause problems for your system.

Before you hire an HVAC contractor, have some sort of idea of the work that needs to be done. A contractor will not be able to give you an accurate price without accurate information about your system. In addition, you need to be able to tell the contractor what you have already tried. So be aware of this information ahead of time.

TIP! Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. First, turn off the power so that nothing will move as you are working on it.

Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. Before you begin cleaning the unit, make sure that it is unplugged. Next, remove the grill, take the blades and clean them gently, then clean the actual unit.

TIP! Your outdoor HVAC units might suffer when your trees lose leaves. Make certain you are cleaning the fan grill often if trees nearby have leaves that are falling.

You need to lubricate parts of your fan condenser. Such ports tend to have coverings made of rubber or metal. Buy an SAE 20 product that is lightweight, and then put no more than ten drops into the ports.

TIP! If there are oil ports on your fan condenser, lubricate it annually. Most of these ports have some sort of protective cap covering them.

If you need to decide the best place to put your outdoor compressor unit, consider putting it in a location that is in the shade. When the unit sucks in cooler air, then less work is required to cool it further which in turn boosts the units efficiency.

Put outdoor condensers in the shade. When your unit sucks in cooler air, then much less is required to cool it further, which saves you money on energy bills.

TIP! Install a programmable thermostat to save energy costs. It changes the temperature so the system isn’t in use when it’s cooler outside or no one is home.

Find your away around the HVAC system with the tips listed here. It is important to take the time needed so you do not end up doing damage to your system by accident. Good luck with your HVAC and feeling comfortable in your home.
