HVAC Can Be Easy With This Guide

TIP! Prior to putting in a service call on your HVAC, be able to identify it. Learn the brand, model, and if you have it, the maintenance history.

A reliable HVAC system can make one’s home really enjoyable. You will feel much better when your home is cool in summer and warm in winter. However, if the system fails, it can be a nightmare. Learning how to maintain your HVAC system properly is key, and you can learn how to do it in the following article.

TIP! Before selecting a HVAC repairman, know what you need done. It’s hard to get an estimate since they haven’t look at your system.

Clean the coils of your condenser fan each month. Before you clean the surface, be sure to turn off the power. Additionally, remove leaves and any other debris from the outside condenser unit.

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

Be careful when doing yard work that you do not get debris on or in your unit. Get the grass shot away from your unit. Be just as mindful when you blow leaves to not blow them toward your HVAC equipment.

TIP! During the fall, leaves can gather around your HVAC. Make certain you are cleaning the fan grill often if trees nearby have leaves that are falling.

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. These ports have a metal covering. Sometimes it is rubber. Chose SAE 20 oil, which has been proven to be the most effective.

TIP! It is always a good idea to swap out single pane windows for double pane ones. During the summer, the use of double-pane windows will help keep the cool air locked inside of the home.

Make certain that an outdoor unit is in the shade. Your unit won’t have to work as hard to cool the inside air if the outside air it sucks from is cooler.

TIP! Have a smart thermostat installed. It will help save on your heating and cooling costs by turning itself down at certain times.

Put outdoor units in the shade if you are installing them. 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! To help lower cooling costs when not at home, make sure the air conditioner is turned off. With the system off, the house will only heat up to a certain temperature.

When it gets cold outside, it is necessary to turn off outdoor condenser units. If temps go below 60 you run the risk of damaging a unit that remains on. Your system will work longer for you this way.

TIP! Do not let your house get dangerously hot. It takes quite a while to cool a home by more than 20 degrees.

Now you know how to ensure your HVAC is working smoothly. Bad things can happen, so keep your eye out. Fortunately, you came across the info here, and you now know what you must do to keep your system in working order.
