Successful HVAC Can Be At Your Fingertips

TIP! If you are having issues with your HVAC, do a tour of your house before you call in help. Notice the temperature in each room.

Many people would like to know about their HVAC unit, but they believe it is difficult. It really isn’t that difficult to learn about, though. These tips will help give the insights you need.

TIP! When spring rolls around, give the condenser fan blades and coils a good clean. Turn the power off so nothing moves.

Check the whole house before you call for help. Determine which rooms are hotter or colder than they should be. This can help contractors quickly figure out the issue and how to fix it easily and quickly.

TIP! If you have oil ports as part of the fan condenser, annual lubrication is key. They are usually fitted with a rubber or metal cap.

Clean the condenser coils and fan at the beginning of the year to help the unit run efficiently. Make sure your power is off before doing more than cleaning, such as working on the unit. Additionally, remove leaves and any other debris from the outside condenser unit.

Clean the debris off your outdoor condenser unit. Things pile up after storms and damage your system. It may begin to overheat, causing massive damage.

TIP! Check your unit at least twice each year. The fall and spring are the optimal times for this maintenance.

Clean the fan blades and coils in your condenser each spring. Before you do so, shut off the power to ensure that none of the parts will move while you work on it. Next, pop off the grill, pull out the blades and start cleaning them and the unit itself off gently.

TIP! When it gets cold outside, turn off the outdoor condensers. Once the temperature drops into the 50s, the unit should no longer be on.

Be careful when doing yard work that you do not get debris on or in your unit. Aim your grass cuttings in a direction away from your unit. Do the same when blowing snow or leaves.

TIP! Getting a programmable thermostats can be a terrific way to realize savings. It may save you as much as 10 percent of your overall utility bill if you turn your thermostat down by 10-15 degrees for a portion of the day.

You can boost the efficiency of your HVAC unit by replacing it with a new energy efficient one or moving your old one to a shady outside location. It will reduce the temperature of the air going into the unit, meaning that it will not have to work as hard to cool it.

TIP! Keep energy costs from rising by having your system serviced annually. During this service visit, they will inspect the motor of the system, oil the moving parts and check the freon levels in the system.

HVAC maintenance isn’t terribly difficult, especially if you have some helpful advice like that found in the tips above. It is really hard to learn about this without trying the above tips first, so keep that in mind. Good luck, you’ll do fine!
