Simple HVAC Strategies You Can’t Go On Without

TIP! Know what you need before you hire a contractor. It will be hard for a contractor to give you a price estimate over the phone if they have not seen your current system.

An HVAC unit can be confusing to many. If you want to learn a little more about something like this, then this article is going to help you out. If you find this intriguing, keep reading.

TIP! Help the outside condenser fan run efficiently by cleaning the coils and fan blades before the summer starts. Except when cleaning the outside, turn the unit off when performing any type of maintenance.

Know what type of system you currently have before calling someone to fix it. Find out the brand and model and, if possible, dig out the maintenance history. This makes sure your contractor will be sufficiently prepared.

TIP! Clean the coils on the condenser fan from time to time. First, the power should be turned off so things don’t move as you work.

If you are having issues with your HVAC, do a tour of your house before you call in help. Determine which rooms are hotter or colder than they should be. This information will help the contractor determine where the problem is and how to fix it.

TIP! Try to choose a shady place to locate the outdoor compressor device. If the unit is taking in cooler air, the efficiency will be boosted since it will not need to work as hard.

If there are oil ports on your fan condenser, lubricate it annually. A rubber or metal cap is typically placed over such ports. Chose SAE 20 oil, which has been proven to be the most effective.

TIP! In order for your new unit to be as efficient as possible, or to make older units more efficient, make sure it’s put in a shaded area. When your unit sucks in cooler air, then much less is required to cool it further, which saves you money on energy bills.

When selecting the spot to put the outdoor compressor for your unit, choose somewhere that gets plenty of shade. The cooler air that the unit can suck in, the less work it will need to do to further cool the air.

TIP! When it gets cold outside, the outdoor condenser unit should be turned off. To prevent damage, turn off your unit if the outside temperature is less than 60 degrees.

In order to boost efficiency, place new outdoor units or move your current unit to a place which resides in the shade. This will help ensure that the AC is pulling in cooler air, reducing the amount of work it has to do and saving you money.

TIP! Update the windows in your home to double-paned if you own it. Good double pane windows keep cool air in during the summer and minimize your utility expenses.

Have the HVAC system serviced twice per year. It’s best to have it checked before you turn it on for the summer and again for the winter. Even if everything seems okay, it doesn’t hurt to check things out.

TIP! Putting in a programmable thermostat is a smart way to cut back on air-conditioning costs. These convenient thermostats may shave ten percent or more off of your bills, because they significantly cut energy use when you’re not around.

Anyone can install and properly use an HVAC system. Be sure to make use of these tips one by one. Use this information and make it work for your system!
