All The HVAC Advice You Need To Know To Save Money

TIP! Before calling for help, know the system you have. Get the brand, model name, and if you can you should get the maintenance history out.

If you have a HVAC unit, you know it’s important to maintain it. It can be very costly to have a unit that does not run well. To fully understand what you can do to have a smooth operating HVAC system, check out the useful tips in this article.

TIP! If your HVAC is giving you problems, tour your home before calling a technician. Figure out which rooms are too cool or warm.

Before making that repair phone call, make sure you know the specifics about your particular system. Take a look at the system or the owner’s manual to find the name and model number. This makes sure your contractor will be sufficiently prepared.

TIP! Outdoor condenser units need to be cleaned regularly. You never know when things can pile up, especially after a windy or rainy storm, and that can throw a wrench in your system.

Clean the fan blades and coils in your condenser each spring. Turn the power off so nothing moves. Then, take off the grill and get the blades out. Clean everything with care.

TIP! If there are oil ports on your fan condenser, lubricate it annually. Most of these ports have some sort of protective cap covering them.

Do not allow grass clippings to cover the outdoor unit of your HVAC system. Shoot the grass away from the unit. This also applies when you blow leaves, so be very careful near your exterior HVAC units when you move debris.

TIP! Your HVAC unit requires regular maintenance at least two times per each year. This should happen in the fall and the spring.

Try to prevent debris from getting in your HVAC unit. Frequently clean the fan grill when trees are shedding leaves. Your fan needs an unobstructed way to get air inside, and the more blocked up it becomes, the more headaches will develop for you with the system.

TIP! Turn off outdoor condenser units when weather turns cold. When the temperature drops beneath 60 degrees, it’s time to cut off the unit to prevent damage.

If the fan on your condenser includes oil ports, they must be lubricated annually. You will see rubber or metal caps covering the ports. Get an oil that is SAE 20 and put about 10 drops into each port, but don’t overfill it.

TIP! Putting in a programmable thermostat is a smart way to cut back on air-conditioning costs. 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.

You can boost the efficiency of your HVAC unit by replacing it with a new energy efficient one or moving your old one to a shady outside location. This will help you save on your energy bill.

TIP! Never let your home reach a dangerously hot temperature. Air conditioners can cool a home by just twenty degrees in a short time.

Hopefully, you have a better idea of how to take care of your HVAC after having read this great article. It can become very expensive to put off maintenance of your system. Use these tips whenever you encounter a problem.
