Top Secrets To Achieving Amazing HVAC Success

TIP! If there are condenser units as part of your HVAC system, clean them often as they tend to have lots of debris. Debris quickly gathers here, even more so if there is a storm.

If you have a HVAC unit, you know it’s important to maintain it. An improperly or inefficiently functioning HVAC system wastes a lot of homeowner money. The following tips will help you care for your HVAC and learn what to do if you eventually need to replace it.

TIP! Make sure your condenser fan is in good working order by wiping down the fan blades and the coils. Make sure to turn off the fan’s power first to be safe.

Cleaning the blades and coils will help the system run better. Turn off the power if you are going to work on your HVAC system. Keep the exterior of the condenser unit free of debris.

Clean the debris on your condenser units. Things pile up after storms and damage your system. Left unchecked, your unit is more likely to break down.

Begin Cleaning

TIP! Check your unit at least twice each year. The ideal thing to do would be to have it checked out in the fall and spring so you’re able to figure out if everything is ready for the cold and hot months.

Every spring you need to make sure your condenser fan’s coils and blades on the fan part are clean. Before you begin cleaning the unit, make sure that it is unplugged. Then, pop off its grills, pull the blades out, and begin cleaning the unit and them gently.

TIP! When colder weather arrives, switch off all outdoor condenser units. This should be done when the temperature drops below 60ºF to avoid damage.

Keep your outdoor units free of debris when your cutting grass. Make sure you shoot the clippings in the other direction from the unit. Be just as mindful when you blow leaves to not blow them toward your HVAC equipment.

TIP! It is a good idea to replace single-paned windows with ones that have double panes. Having a double pane window helps limit your need for air conditioning during the summer months.

Lubricate your fan condenser at least once a year. A rubber or metal cap is typically placed over such ports. Get an oil that is SAE 20 and put about 10 drops into each port, but don’t overfill it.

TIP! Consider getting a programmable thermostat for your AC. Such thermostats help you save around ten percent when it comes to energy costs.

In order to keep energy costs down, make sure heating and cooling systems are services at least once per year. This inspection will ensure that your unit is working efficiently, including a freon level and motor check, and oiling moving parts. Your unit will last longer this way.

TIP! Don’t let your home get way too hot to where it’s dangerous. It is only possible for an air conditioner to lower the temperature in a home by 20 degrees F in a short time.

This advice should assist you in maintaining and repairing your HVAC system. Regular maintenance will make sure your operating costs are lower in the long term. Keep reviewing these tips to make sure that you are upgrading and maintaining your home HVAC for a long while.
