An Easy-to-understand Guide To All Your HVAC Questions

TIP! Don’t hire a contractor until you know a little about what you are facing. This will make the quote process much easier.

A quality HVAC will keep proper air flowing at all times. Proper maintenance will save you money in the long run. The following article will teach you how to have your HVAC serviced, how to choose a service repairman, and how to choose a new system.

TIP! Clean your fan blades and coils each spring to ensure that your condenser fan operates at it’s best. Shut off power before working or cleaning your system.

Before an HVAC expert comes to your home to do any repair work, walk around the home and check out the temps in every room. Figure out which rooms feel hot and which feel cold. Give this information to your contractor when they arrive.

TIP! Clean the debris on your condenser units. You never know when things can pile up, especially after a windy or rainy storm, and that can throw a wrench in your system.

You should clean your condenser fan’s blades and coils every spring. Before you do so, shut off the power to ensure that none of the parts will move while you work on it. Pull out each of the blades and clean them one by one.

TIP! During the fall, leaves can gather around your HVAC. Cleaning your unit is very important for its effectiveness.

If your condenser comes with oil ports, you should lubricate it yearly. A rubber or metal cap is typically placed over such ports. Chose SAE 20 oil, which has been proven to be the most effective.

TIP! If you can choose the place where your outdoor compressor goes, pick a spot with lots of shade. The unit will operate more efficiently to cool your home if the intake air is cooler to begin with.

Your system should be checked twice a year. The ideal thing to do would be to have it checked out in the fall and spring so you’re able to figure out if everything is ready for the cold and hot months. This will help you to avoid problems.

TIP! Put your outdoor unit in places with shade. When the air conditioner pulls in cooler air, it won’t have to do much more to cool it and that will save you a lot of money on energy bills.

Turn off your outdoor condenser when it becomes cold out. If the temperature drops to under 60 degrees, you risk damage to the unit if you leave it on. This helps your system remain in good working order.

Hvac System

TIP! A programmable thermostat is a simple way to help save money on air conditioning costs. Programmable thermostats can automatically dial back settings, saving you money.

As mentioned earlier, a good HVAC system is a vital component to any home, so keeping everything up to par is critical. The above tips will make sure you will keep repairs to a minimum. But it is your responsibility to take your HVAC system seriously and keep it in good shape.
