Top Tips About Hvac That Anyone Can Follow

TIP! Know the name and type of your HVAC system before looking for a repair person. Write down what brand your system is along with the model number and, if they’re available, maintenance records.

An efficient HVAC system is needed to live in comfortable home. At the same time, a malfunctioning system can make your home inhabitable to some. Not only do they cost a lot of money to take care of, but they can also make a living area an uncomfortable one. Read this article to learn how to care for and maintain your HVAC system.

TIP! It is important to have some knowledge of your present system and needs before calling a contractor. It is going to be hard to get a price estimate on the phone if the current system isn’t something they’ve seen.

Before calling anyone to repair your system, know what system you have. Learn the brand, model, and if you have it, the maintenance history. This helps make sure the contractor has the information they will need.

TIP! Clean the coils of your condenser fan each month. Shut off power before working or cleaning your system.

Before the summer you should clean out your condenser fan’s blades and coils. Always turn the unit off before you do anything to it, including leaning. Also, make sure you remove any debris or leaves from the condenser unit outside.

TIP! Clean the debris on your condenser units. You don’t know the amount of stuff that can pile up right after heavy winds or a storm.

Don’t let your outdoor HVAC units get smothered with clippings anytime you mow the yard. Make sure the grass does not get in your unit. This same tip applies when you are blowing fallen leaves around the yard. Grass and leaves pose a serious problem for the internal functioning of your unit.

TIP! When it gets cold outside, it is necessary to turn off outdoor condenser units. If the temperature outside is less than 60ºF, be sure to turn off the unit so that you don’t damage it.

You need to lubricate parts of your fan condenser. The port usually has either a rubber or metal cap on top of it. Use a lightweight oil and do not overfill them.

Look for shade when placing a compressor outdoors. In this way, it will be cooling air that is already somewhat cooled. This saves energy.

TIP! A programmable thermostat can help you save money on your air conditioning bill. These can save you around 10 percent on your heating and cooling costs by just turning it back 10 percent to 15 percent for around eight hours each day.

Once it gets cold outside, you should turn off the outdoor condenser unit. Avoid damaging the unit by turning it off when the outdoor temperature drops below 60 degrees. This will keep your system in working order year after year, saving you a ton on repairs.
