Tips And Tricks For Bettering Your HVAC Experience

TIP! Prior to putting in a service call on your HVAC, be able to identify it. Learn the brand and the model.

Consider how unpleasant your home might be without a properly functioning HVAC system all year around. The right amount of cool air on a hot day, or having hot air blowing when it’s cold outside, is a great feeling. When your system fails, your life may fall into chaos. Proper HVAC maintenance is important, and the following article will give the necessary information to do that.

TIP! Don’t get grass clippings on your outside unit. Try shooting the clippings away from it.

Before calling someone to repair your system, make sure you know what kind of HVAC system you actually have. Know the brand name and model number. It is also helpful to have the maintenance history. This will let you know that you’re able to give the contractor the information that can help them.

TIP! When selecting the spot to put the outdoor compressor for your unit, choose somewhere that gets plenty of shade. If it sucks in cool air, it will need to work less to coll the air inside, which can make it last longer.

Help the outside condenser fan run efficiently by cleaning the coils and fan blades before the summer starts. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit. Also, it is important to clear the outside condenser unit from any debris that maybe trapped inside.

TIP! Make sure your HVAC systems is checked twice a year. This should be checked often for debris and malfunctions.

If your condenser comes with oil ports, you should lubricate it yearly. You will see rubber or metal caps covering the ports. You should select an SAE 20 oil since it is lightweight and does not contain detergent. Be sure to use just 10 drops or so, or your system may overfill.

Make certain that an outdoor unit is in the shade. The unit will operate more efficiently to cool your home if the intake air is cooler to begin with.

TIP! If you are going to be gone during the day or on vacation, turn the temperature up on your air conditioning unit. By raising the temperature from, for example 78 to 80, your house will be warmer, but only up to 80 before your AC kicks in.

Do you now see just how important it is to keep your HVAC operating properly? Failing to make regular inspections will result in disaster. Thankfully you found this article, giving you some great tips that can help keep your HVAC system working well in your home.
