Techniques To Help You Find HVAC Success

TIP! Always make sure you are up-to-date about your HVAC unit. Take a look at the system or the owner’s manual to find the name and model number.

For a lot of homeowners it’s hard to know who to call when their cooling or heating system starts to fail. To stop such a situation from becoming a real disaster, it pays to spend some time getting familiar with the topic. The advice here will help any homeowner know what to do with their system.

TIP! Clean the coils of your condenser fan each month. Always shut the power off before doing any work or cleaning on the unit.

If there are condenser units as part of your HVAC system, clean them often as they tend to have lots of debris. Your HVAC system may run into problems after storms if it is surrounded by debris. Left unchecked, your unit is more likely to break down.

TIP! The operation of your HVAC system can be in danger when the tree leaves begin to fall. When you see nearby trees shedding their leaves, clean the fan grill on your unit constantly.

Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. Be sure to turn the power off first; you don’t want anything to move. Then, take the grill off, pull the blades out, and gently clean them as well as the unit itself.

Do not allow grass clippings to cover the outdoor unit of your HVAC system. Turn your lawnmower in the opposite direction. Do the same when blowing snow or leaves.

TIP! A programmable thermostat is a simple way to help save money on air conditioning costs. These can save you around 10 percent on your heating and cooling costs by just turning it back 10 percent to 15 percent for around eight hours each day.

Your HVAC system could suffer when trees begin dropping their leaves. Whenever leaves are falling, consistently clean the fan grill. If your fan is obstructed, it can keep your system from working properly.

TIP! Service your HVAC yearly. During this service visit, they will inspect the motor of the system, oil the moving parts and check the freon levels in the system.

You need to lubricate parts of your fan condenser. The port usually has either a rubber or metal cap on top of it. Use SAE 20 oil that is non-detergent and lightweight, and put 10 drops or fewer in each port, but make sure to avoid overfilling them.

TIP! If everyone is out, turn the air conditioner off. When you turn the air conditioner off, the house may heat up a little but only a certain amount.

During extreme temperatures of the summer and winter, it can be incredibly frustrating to have your unit go out. However, homeowners who are educated in basic heating and cooling maintenance can overcome many of the issues that may arise during trying times. The tips you learned here can help homeowners make informed decisions regarding their HVAC systems.
