All The HVAC Advice You Need To Know To Save Money

TIP! Before calling for help, know the system you have. Find out the brand and model and, if possible, dig out the maintenance history.

Letting your HVAC system fall into ruin is an incredibly foolish decision for any homeowner. Do you want to understand how to keep it in the best condition? This article is going to teach you exactly what you need to know.

TIP! It is important to have some knowledge of your present system and needs before calling a contractor. It’s hard for these contractors to give phone estimates without seeing the current system you have.

Always make sure you are up-to-date about your HVAC unit. Write down what brand your system is along with the model number and, if they’re available, maintenance records. This will let you know that you’re able to give the contractor the information that can help them.

TIP! When you cut the grass, make sure your mower isn’t tossing clippings toward your outdoor units. Aim your grass cuttings in a direction away from your unit.

If your HVAC system us giving you issues, take a look around the house prior to calling a contractor. Make a list of the temperatures in each room and whether they are hot or cold. That way, the contractor will have an easier time diagnosing the problem and repairing it fast.

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 you have condenser units outside your home, be sure to clean out the debris from them often. Particularly after bad weather, you should inspect your unit. It could get too hot, leading to even more problems.

TIP! In order for your new unit to be as efficient as possible, or to make older units more efficient, make sure it’s put in a shaded area. It will reduce the temperature of the air going into the unit, meaning that it will not have to work as hard to cool it.

Try to choose a shady place to locate the outdoor compressor device. When your unit is bringing in cool air, it will not have to work as hard to cool the air as it moves it inside, boosting efficiency.

TIP! When it gets cold outside, the outdoor condenser unit should be turned off. To prevent damage, turn off your unit if the outside temperature is less than 60 degrees.

If you want things to be more efficient, get new units outside or have your current one moved into the shade. You save money this way because the air conditioner is now pulling in cooler air, which is easier to cool further.

TIP! You should have your HVAC system inspected at least once, but preferably twice, per year. The motor should be checked, the parts oiled and the freon levels inspected.

Turn off your outdoor condenser when it becomes cold out. To prevent damage, turn off your unit if the outside temperature is less than 60 degrees. Your system will work longer for you this way.

Maintaining your system is critical. When your HVAC system breaks, it is going to cost you a lot. Avoid this by using these tips here.
