Turn Yourself Into A Master Of HVAC

TIP! If your HVAC is running into problems, check out each room in your house before calling for assistance. While you are walking through the house, gauge which rooms are the coolest and which are the warmest.

Most people are not happy when their HVAC unit breaks during a cold winter or hot summer day. Eventually, you will find yourself in need of a repair or a replacement. It is important that you know a bit about the situation in advance. Keep reading and this will help you do this.

TIP! Think about what improvements you want made before picking an HVAC contractor. This is necessary so that they can give you a quote before doing any work.

If your HVAC doesn’t seem to be working properly, check things out yourself prior to calling in a technician. Determine which rooms are hotter or colder than they should be. This information will help the contractor determine where the problem is and how to fix it.

Outside Condenser

TIP! HVAC units may suffer when leaves are falling off the trees. Frequently clean the fan grill when trees are shedding leaves.

Keep outside condenser fans running smoothly by cleaning fan blades and coils before the summer begins. Before you clean the unit, be sure to turn off the power. The outside condenser unit should be kept free of leaves and other debris.

TIP! If there are oil ports on your fan condenser, lubricate it annually. You can easily find the ports as they have a rubber or metal cap.

If your condenser comes with oil ports, you should lubricate it yearly. These are usually covered with rubber or metal caps. Pick a type of SAE 20 oil that is non-detergent and lightweight. Place 10 or less drops into every port to avoid overfilling.

TIP! When the weather cools down, turn your outdoor condenser off. To avoid damage, units should be turned off when temperatures are below 60 degrees.

A shady spot is always a good choice for the placement of your outdoor compressor. The unit will operate more efficiently to cool your home if the intake air is cooler to begin with.

TIP! If at all possible, install double-paned windows in your home instead of those with a single pane. Double pane windows can minimize the use of your air conditioner in hot weather since they keep the indoor air cooler.

Put outdoor units in the shade if you are installing them. If your air conditioner is able to constantly suck in cool air, it won’t have to work overtime to cool your space, which can in turn save you money on your electricity bills.

TIP! A programmable thermostat can help you save money on your air conditioning bill. A thermostat that’s programmable is going to save you around ten percent on the heating and cooling costs you have to pay when you turn it back about fifteen percent for a part of the day.

It can be hard to find a professional if you don’t have the advice. However, armed with information, the process doesn’t have to be difficult. Now, you should feel much more empowered about dealing with issues when they arise.
