Look Here For Great Advice About Hvac

TIP! If you have some problems with the HVAC system, check out your home before calling a contractor. You will be looking to see which of your rooms feel hotter or colder than they should be.

Every homeowner must consider how their home will be heated or cooled when necessary. Since this is the case, it’s good to keep the HVAC system in a home working well. By maintaining your HVAC system, you can extend its life and avoid expensive repairs. Below are many helpful tips that show you how to keep your HVAC humming along in proper working order.

TIP! If your unit is outdoors, clean them regularly. Your HVAC system may run into problems after storms if it is surrounded by debris.

If you are having issues with your HVAC, do a tour of your house before you call in help. Note which of your rooms are hot and which are cold. The contractor can probably figure out and fix the problem easier.

TIP! Keep your outdoor units free of debris when your cutting grass. When you work with your lawn mower, make sure it spits the grass to the side opposite of your unit.

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. They are usually fitted with a rubber or metal cap. Pick out a SAE 20 type of oil because it has no detergent, is lightweight, and you should put around 10 drops in the ports but make it to where they don’t get too full.

TIP! If there are oil ports on your fan condenser, lubricate it annually. You’ll see that the ports here are closed with a rubber or metal cap.

Try to choose a shady place to locate the outdoor compressor device. If your unit is sucking in cooler air, it will have less work to do to cool that air as it sends it inside which boosts efficiency.

TIP! Put outdoor condensers in the shade. The unit will have to do less work cooling this air.

Have your HVAC serviced at least yearly. 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. Even if everything seems okay, it doesn’t hurt to check things out.

TIP! Outdoor condenser units need to be turned off when the weather turns cold. To prevent damage, turn off your unit if the outside temperature is less than 60 degrees.

If you are a home owner, replace whatever single pane windows you have with more efficient double-paned versions. You can reduce your energy costs from energy leaking out through your windows by installing window that are double-paned. This will help you save a lot of money.

Now you know how to maintain the HVAC in your home. You must stay on top of things! Use the above tips to make sure it keeps working properly.
