This Article Has Premium Tips For Your HVAC Needs

TIP! Before you call someone to help you fix your system, be sure to know what sort of system you have in place. Learn the brand, model, and if you have it, the maintenance history.

If your home’s HVAC system is not working properly, it can create a lot of stress on you as a homeowner. In addition to being costly for repairs, they also prevent you from feeling comfortable in your home. To keep trouble at bay, continue reading to learn some great preventative maintenance tips.

TIP! Tour your home before calling a contractor. Make note of which rooms are cold and which are hot.

Before choosing a HVAC company find out what the company offers. This will make the quote process much easier. If you don’t have any idea, they will have trouble giving you any sort of quote. So, have this information ready.

TIP! Think about what improvements you want made before picking an HVAC contractor. This will make the quote process much easier.

Clean your fan and coils when the weather begins to warm. The power to the unit should be removed before you begin any maintenance, even cleaning. Clean off any leaves or debris from your external condenser unit.

TIP! Make certain that you clean your condenser when the weather begins to warm. Start by turning off the power to avoid having anything move when you work on it.

Regularly remove debris from outside condenser units. Your HVAC system may run into problems after storms if it is surrounded by debris. The whole thing can overheat, causing major problems and possibly an enormous expense for you.

TIP! When you mow your lawn, take care that you don’t get grass clippings all over your outdoor unit. Now so the grass clippings are shot away from your unit.

Avoid showering your outdoor unit with grass clippings when you mow the lawn. Shoot grass the other way. If you’re blowing leaves, this same problem can occur, so make sure you move around the unit and blow the leaves away from it.

TIP! For maximum efficiency, place outdoor units in a shady spot. This will ensure cool air is sucked in, meaning less cooling must be done by the unit.

If your fan condenser has oil ports, you must lubricate it once per year. You will see rubber or metal caps covering the ports. Put about ten drops or less of a good non-detergent SAE 20 oil into each port.

TIP! One way to save some money with A/C is by having a programmable thermostat installed. These convenient thermostats may shave ten percent or more off of your bills, because they significantly cut energy use when you’re not around.

Do not let your house get dangerously hot. Expect an air conditioning unit to drop the temperature down 20 degrees within a short amount of time. If your house’s interior temperature hits 100 degrees Fahrenheit, you would only be able to cool it down just above 80 degrees. If humidity is high, this temp is still unsafe for people.

TIP! To help keep your energy costs down, have your heating and cooling system serviced at least once a year. During your service visit, the serviceman will inspect the unit’s motor, oil the unit’s moving parts and ensure the unit has proper freon levels.

A well running HVAC is critical to keeping your home comfortable. If you do not maintain it properly, you may find that it breaks down. Avoid this by using the tips listed here.
