All The HVAC Advice You Need To Know To Save Money

TIP! Know what type of system you currently have before calling someone to fix it. Find out the brand and model and, if possible, dig out the maintenance history.

Many people choose to have an HVAC unit in their home. This unit will regulate the temperature in your home. Because it is a mechanical system, it calls for the help of a professional installer. Read on to learn more about HVAC systems.

TIP! If you have some problems with the HVAC system, check out your home before calling a contractor. Notice the temperature in each room.

Tour your home before calling a contractor. 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.

TIP! Clean the condenser coils and fan at the beginning of the year to help the unit run efficiently. The power to the unit should be removed before you begin any maintenance, even cleaning.

Before choosing an HVAC contractor, think of what you wish to have done. A contractor will be hard pressed to provide you with an over-the-phone estimate if unfamiliar with your system. It will be even harder if you cannot explain what you have done. So, know this information in advance.

TIP! Clean any debris that accumulates on an external condenser unit. Debris can pile up after a storm, bringing potential damage with it.

Your outside condenser fan can be helped to run better by you cleaning the fan blades and coils prior to summer starting up. Always make sure you shut off the power before you do any work on the unit other than superficial cleaning. Clean the outside of your condenser unit regularly.

TIP! Don’t get grass clippings on your outside unit. Aim the grass in a different direction from the unit.

If your fan condenser has oil ports, you must lubricate it once per year. These ports are typically covered with caps made of metal or rubber. 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.

TIP! Check to determine if the fan condenser on your HVAC system is equipped with oil ports, and if it is, be sure to lubricate every year. The port usually has either a rubber or metal cap on top of it.

When choosing the area for placing an outdoor compressor device, place it in a shady area. Your unit won’t have to work as hard to cool the inside air if the outside air it sucks from is cooler.

TIP! Boost energy efficiency by putting your condenser unit in the shade. It will help you save on your energy bill when you do this.

After reading the above article, you should be aware of the important things that pertain to helping you with your HVAC system, and dealing with contractors. The installation of this unit should be done correctly, and you need to maintain it on a regular basis. Use the information from this article to guide you when choosing a heat pump or having maintenance work completed on your HVAC.
