HVAC Tips You Can’t Master The Topic Without

TIP! If your HVAC doesn’t seem to be working properly, check things out yourself prior to calling in a technician. Determine which rooms feel cold and which feel hot.

The comfort of one’s home depends on a properly functioning HVAC system. You will feel much better when your home is cool in summer and warm in winter. This can become a nightmare if the HVAC you have fails. Learning how to maintain your unit minimizes the chances of a breakdown; these tips will prove very useful.

TIP! Your outside condenser fan can be helped to run better by you cleaning the fan blades and coils prior to summer starting up. Prior to working on or cleaning the unit, be sure to turn off the power.

Clean your fan blades and coils each spring to ensure that your condenser fan operates at it’s best. Make sure your power is off before doing more than cleaning, such as working on the unit. Also, it is important to clear the outside condenser unit from any debris that maybe trapped inside.

TIP! Your outdoor HVAC units might suffer when your trees lose leaves. Be sure to clean your fan grill frequently when trees nearby are shedding.

Be sure to clean external condenser units regularly. You never know when things can pile up, especially after a windy or rainy storm, and that can throw a wrench in your system. It can overheat, leading to disaster within your system.

TIP! When the weather cools down, turn your outdoor condenser off. If temps go below 60 you run the risk of damaging a unit that remains on.

When you’re trying to cut your grass, don’t cover a unit outside with the clippings. Shoot grass the other way. This is the same if you are using a leaf blower.

TIP! Have a smart thermostat installed. A programmable thermostat can save you up to ten percent on your cooling and heating costs by simply turning the thermostat back ten to fifteen percent for eight hours a day.

As the trees around your home lose leaves, it can cause your HVAC unit trouble. Cleaning your unit is very important for its effectiveness. The fan needs unobstructed air flow, and if debris is blocking this air flow, then your system could suffer.

TIP! If you want your energy costs to go down, have the heating an cooling system you own serviced every year at least. The contractor should oil the parts that move and check the motor and freon levels.

If there are oil ports on your fan condenser, lubricate it annually. You can easily find the ports as they have a rubber or metal cap. Get an oil that is SAE 20 and put about 10 drops into each port, but don’t overfill it.

TIP! To help lower cooling costs when not at home, make sure the air conditioner is turned off. The house will only heat to certain level and a decent HVAC system can quickly cool this down once you are home.

Your HVAC unit is vital to your home. By failing to do routine inspections, you’re setting yourself up for failure. However, this article has given you the advice you need to make sure your HVAC system is always running properly.
