All The Help You Need To Maximize HVAC Success

TIP! If your HVAC system us giving you issues, take a look around the house prior to calling a contractor. Determine which rooms are hotter or colder than they should be.

HVAC seems a complicated topic at first. But this is not necessarily the way it has to be, if you take the time to peruse this article. You are about to read helpful tips about the topic.

TIP! Know what you need before you hire a contractor. A contractor will be hard pressed to provide you with an over-the-phone estimate if unfamiliar with your system.

Know the name and type of your HVAC system before looking for a repair person. Write down the brand and the model and have all maintenance records on hand. Then, you’ll be ready to tell the contractor what they need to know.

TIP! Keep outside condenser fans running smoothly by cleaning fan blades and coils before the summer begins. Be safe and turn off the power supply before working on your HVAC unit.

Your outdoor HVAC units might suffer when your trees lose leaves. Make sure you clean out your fan grill often once nearby trees start shedding their leaves. A blocked unit can quickly become a broken unit.

TIP! If your condenser units are outisde, make sure any debris is cleaned from them regularly. After a wind or rain storm things may pile up, causing problems with your HVAC system.

If your condenser comes with oil ports, you should lubricate it yearly. You can easily find the ports as they have a rubber or metal cap. Choose an oil graded SAE 20, it is non-detergent and lightweight. Place about 10 drops into each of the ports, taking care that it does not overfill.

TIP! Don’t let grass clippings pile up against your outdoor condenser. Aim the grass in a different direction from the unit.

When the weather starts to cool down, make sure you turn off outdoor condenser units. This should be done when the temperature drops below 60ºF to avoid damage. This will keep your system in working order year after year, saving you a ton on repairs.

Pane Windows

TIP! Put outdoor condensers in the shade. The unit will have to do less work cooling this air.

If possible, your single pane windows should be replaced with double-paned ones. Good double pane windows keep cool air in during the summer and minimize your utility expenses. This also helps retain heated air during the colder months.

TIP! When the weather starts to cool down, make sure you turn off outdoor condenser units. To prevent damage, turn off your unit if the outside temperature is less than 60 degrees.

You can keep energy costs in your home lower by choosing to have professional maintenance done on your HVAC unit. When it’s checked out, the motor will be inspected, moving parts well oiled and the level of freon adjusted if necessary. These few simple things will help your system to run at its peak performance.

TIP! If you are a home owner, replace whatever single pane windows you have with more efficient double-paned versions. Having a double pane window helps limit your need for air conditioning during the summer months.

Hopefully, you now feel more comfortable with HVAC units as a whole. Using the suggestions here should help you in keeping your unit working at optimum levels. Who knows, maybe you could actually make some money.
