Tips And Tricks For Bettering Your HVAC Experience

TIP! Do not allow grass clippings to cover the outdoor unit of your HVAC system. Direct the grass clippings in a direction away from the HVAC unit.

HVAC systems can bring you immense joy and immense pain. They can be costly to repair, but living in discomfort is not an option. Here are some suggestions to help you maintain your unit.

TIP! If the condenser fan has oil parts, then you need to lubricate it at least once per year. You can find these ports covered with rubber or metal caps.

If your HVAC doesn’t seem to be working properly, check things out yourself prior to calling in a technician. Make a list of the rooms which are comfortable and which just aren’t. This information will help the contractor determine where the problem is and how to fix it.

TIP! Outdoor condenser units need to be turned off when the weather turns cold. If the outside temp is under 60 degrees, turn the unit off to prevent damage.

Know what you need before you hire a contractor. A contractor cannot give an accurate estimate without looking at your system. In addition, you need to be able to tell the contractor what you have already tried. Understand this information beforehand.

TIP! One way to save some money with A/C is by having a programmable thermostat installed. It changes the temperature so the system isn’t in use when it’s cooler outside or no one is home.

Clean the debris on your condenser units. Falling leaves and wind or rain may cause debris to reduce the efficiency of your unit. It can cause your system to malfunction by overheating.

TIP! Regular maintenance of your unit should be performed annually. When it’s checked out, the motor will be inspected, moving parts well oiled and the level of freon adjusted if necessary.

Cover your unit when you are mowing the lawn. Shoot the grass away from the unit. When blowing leaves, do the same. Always take care when passing your HVAC units while moving leaves, grass or other debris.

TIP! If you are going to be gone during the day or on vacation, turn the temperature up on your air conditioning unit. With the system off, the house will only heat up to a certain temperature.

Check to determine if the fan condenser on your HVAC system is equipped with oil ports, and if it is, be sure to lubricate every year. You can easily find the ports as they have a rubber or metal cap. Use a lightweight, detergent-free SAE 20 oil, putting 10 drops in each port.

TIP! Make certain you properly investigate any company prior to hiring them. Check out the online reviews, and run a quick search on the BBB website to make sure they have been good to past customers.

To boost the efficiency of your HVAC system, you should put your unit in a shady place. When your unit sucks in cooler air, then much less is required to cool it further, which saves you money on energy bills.

TIP! If you are purchasing an AC unit, there are calculators on the Internet that can help you figure out the right size. If you get a unit that is too large, it will cost a lot in energy costs.

A well running HVAC is critical to keeping your home comfortable. Your home will not be livable without a well maintained HVAC system. Put these tips to good use and avoid this from happening.
