Tons Of Tips And Tricks For HVAC Success

TIP! Clean the coils on the condenser fan from time to time. Make sure to turn off the fan’s power first to be safe.

Having a well running HVAC will help make your home comfortable. They will cost you a lot of money. It’s generally an all-around good idea to study as much as you can about HVAC maintenance and upkeep. The following tips will provide you some great info to get you started.

TIP! If your condenser comes with oil ports, you should lubricate it yearly. These ports are often covered by a rubber or metal cap.

What system do you have? You need this information to tell your contractor. Get the brand, model name, and if you can you should get the maintenance history out. This will give contractor’s a better idea of what to expect before they show up, which will help things go more smoothly on arrival.

TIP! Find a place that is shaded for your compressor. If your unit is sucking in cooler air, it will have less work to do to cool that air as it sends it inside which boosts efficiency.

Go through your home before you call HVAC professional. Note which rooms are hot and which are cold. That knowledge can help the technician figure out what is going on.

TIP! 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. You save money this way because the air conditioner is now pulling in cooler air, which is easier to cool further.

Know what work you want done before you select an HVAC contractor. You can’t get a decent estimate over a telephone, so disregard those numbers and wait until they view your system. It will be even harder if you cannot explain what you have done. So, figure out this information before anything else.

Cleaning the blades and coils will help the system run better. Turn off your power before doing any job like this. Take away all of the debris as well.

TIP! Putting in a programmable thermostat is a smart way to cut back on air-conditioning costs. Such thermostats help you save around ten percent when it comes to energy costs.

Your HVAC system could suffer when trees begin dropping their leaves. Make sure the unit’s fan grill is cleaned frequently when the leaves begin to fall. An obstruction, such as a leaf, prevents the maximum amount of cool air from entering the system.

TIP! In order to keep energy costs down, make sure heating and cooling systems are services at least once per year. The motor should be checked, the parts oiled and the freon levels inspected.

You must keep your HVAC systems oil ports lubricated annually. Such ports tend to have coverings made of rubber or metal. Use SAE 20 oil that is lightweight and detergent free, and put ten drops or fewer into each one. Make sure not to overfill them.

A home’s HVAC system is the key to ambient comfort. Without maintenance, you may find yourself very uncomfortable. Make sure that you do not let this happen.
