HVAC Advice From The Experts In The Field

TIP! Help the outside condenser fan run efficiently by cleaning the coils and fan blades before the summer starts. Before you clean the surface, be sure to turn off the power.

It seems hard to learn all about HVAC at first. However, it’s really not that hard if you commit yourself to it. Continue reading to learn some simple advice about it.

TIP! Outdoor condenser units need to be cleaned regularly. Debris can pile up at rates that increase during rainy or windy weather, and this can foul up the inner workings of your system.

Clean the coils on the condenser fan from time to time. Turn the power off so nothing moves. Then, take the grill off, pull the blades out, and gently clean them as well as the unit itself.

TIP! Clean the coils on the condenser fan from time to time. Make sure to turn off the fan’s power first to be safe.

When the trees are losing their leaves, your HVAC unit can suffer. Make certain you are cleaning the fan grill often if trees nearby have leaves that are falling. The fan must stay clear in order to function, and if it gets blocked, you will have to contend with problems.

TIP! If you can choose the place where your outdoor compressor goes, pick a spot with lots of shade. The cooler the air which goes in, the less work the unit will have to do.

Place your HVAC unit in the shade to boost efficiency. When the air conditioner pulls in cooler air, it won’t have to do much more to cool it and that will save you a lot of money on energy bills.

TIP! Have the HVAC system serviced twice per year. The best times to have the system checked is spring and fall, so you are sure everything is running at peak performance before the heating and cooling seasons.

Have the HVAC system checked twice a year at the least. It’s best to have it checked before you turn it on for the summer and again for the winter. Check it out just to be safe even if there is nothing broken.

TIP! Turn off outdoor condenser units when weather turns cold. Avoid damaging the unit by turning it off when the outdoor temperature drops below 60 degrees.

Save energy use and money by turning off the air conditioner if there is nobody home. When it’s off the house will get hot, but only by a certain amount. Leaving it on for the entire day means that it is struggling to keep things cool, something that takes lots of energy.

TIP! If possible, your single pane windows should be replaced with double-paned ones. Double-pane windows keep inside air cooler, allowing you to reduce AC usage in the summertime.

Do not let your house get dangerously hot. Air conditioners can only really cool your home down 20 degrees or so within a reasonable time period. If your home gets above 100 degrees Fahrenheit, you’ll only cool down to still above 80. Taking into consideration the humidity level, this may not even be adequate for the human body to recover from excessive heat while sleeping.

TIP! A programmable thermostat is a simple way to help save money on air conditioning costs. It may save you as much as 10 percent of your overall utility bill if you turn your thermostat down by 10-15 degrees for a portion of the day.

This article has given you the knowledge necessary to get into HVAC. Apply this advice and you will be in great shape. Use the tips and you might be able to make money soon.
