Simple HVAC Strategies You Can’t Go On Without

TIP! Before you ever begin looking for an HVAC contractor, first consider the entire job that you’ll need completed. Discussing the problem is simplified if you understand what has happened with the unit.

TIP! As you notice the tress begin to lose their leaves, keep an eye on your outdoor condenser unit. Clean the fan grill often when leaves are falling.

Before calling for help, know the system you have. 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! When it gets cold outside, the outdoor condenser unit should be turned off. If you get into temperatures that are less than 60 degrees you need the unit to be shut off so it doesn’t get damaged.

If you are having issues with your HVAC, do a tour of your house before you call in help. Figure out which rooms are too cool or warm. This will allow a contractor to quickly figure out what the issue is and how it can be fixed fast.

TIP! If you are a home owner, replace whatever single pane windows you have with more efficient double-paned versions. Double pane windows help minimize your air conditioning use in the summer by keeping the cooler air inside your home.

TIP! Getting a programmable thermostats can be a terrific way to realize savings. Programmable thermostats can automatically dial back settings, saving you money.

Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. For safety, always turn the power off first. Next, pop off the grill, pull out the blades and start cleaning them and the unit itself off gently.

TIP! Save some cash by shutting down the air-conditioning system when there is no one in the house. Turning it off does allow the temperature to rise, but only so far.

When you cut the grass, don’t cover the outdoor units with their clippings. Direct the grass clippings in a direction away from the HVAC unit. The same goes for when you blow leaves, so make sure your are careful when moving any debris in the vicinity of your HVAC devices.

TIP! Did you know an AC unit can freeze? The drain line may also freeze up. If this happens, put your thermostat over to fan.

Lubricate the oil ports on your condenser once each year. These are usually covered with rubber or metal caps. Get an oil that is SAE 20 and put about 10 drops into each port, but don’t overfill it.

TIP! There are plenty of online tools, such as sizing calculators, which can help you find the best unit to cool your home. While you might think that a larger HVAC system is always better, in fact, larger systems sometimes are not the best choice for a particular space.
