HVAC Tips, Tricks And Techniques You Need

TIP! Always make sure you are up-to-date about your HVAC unit. Know the brand name and model number.

For a lot of homeowners it’s hard to know who to call when their cooling or heating system starts to fail. To prevent the situation from becoming disastrous, it is worth any time spent to become familiar with the subject. The thrust of this article is to assist homeowners in finding the help they require.

TIP! Before contacting a repair service, do a short tour of the entire home. While you are walking through the house, gauge which rooms are the coolest and which are the warmest.

Check out the system that you have before you call a professional. Learn the brand, model, and if you have it, the maintenance history. That way you can provide the contractor with all the necessary information.

TIP! Cleaning the blades and coils will help the system run better. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit.

If your condenser units are outisde, make sure any debris is cleaned from them regularly. After a wind or rain storm things may pile up, causing problems with your HVAC system. Overheating can occur, which often spells disaster for your system.

TIP! Fall is a hard time on HVAC units. Be sure to clean your fan grill frequently when trees nearby are shedding.

If the condenser fan has oil parts, then you need to lubricate it at least once per year. You’ll see that the ports here are closed with a rubber or metal cap. Use SAE 20 oil that is lightweight and detergent free, and put ten drops or fewer into each one. Make sure not to overfill them.

Pane Windows

TIP! When selecting the spot to put the outdoor compressor for your unit, choose somewhere that gets plenty of shade. In this way, it will be cooling air that is already somewhat cooled.

If possible, your single pane windows should be replaced with double-paned ones. Double pane windows can help minimize how much you use your air conditioner in the summer, because they keep cool air inside the home. This also helps retain heated air during the colder months.

TIP! Condenser units for the outdoors should be shut off when it starts to get cold outside. If the outside temp is under 60 degrees, turn the unit off to prevent damage.

Equipping your home with a programmable thermostat can be an excellent way to cut utility costs. If you adjust it to keep the house a little warmer or a little cooler during the time you are sleeping, you may see your energy bill go down by as much as ten percent. Some of these thermostats can even be controlled from your smart phone or computer.

TIP! A programmable thermostat can really help you out when it comes to your power bills. If you adjust it to keep the house a little warmer or a little cooler during the time you are sleeping, you may see your energy bill go down by as much as ten percent.
