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

TIP! Clean your outdoor condensers often. You don’t know the amount of stuff that can pile up right after heavy winds or a storm.

A good HVAC system is a great thing to have in any home, but a bad one can give a homeowner a huge headache. They are costly to fix, but being uncomfortable is even worse. The best thing anyone can do is follow good tips on proper HVAC maintenance, which you can find in the following article.

TIP! Each spring it’s time to clean the inside of your condenser unit, including the fan and the sensitive coil. Start by turning off the power to avoid having anything move when you work on it.

Clean the fan blades and coils prior to summertime. Prior to working on or cleaning the unit, be sure to turn off the power. Take away all of the debris as well.

TIP! It is very important that your HVAC system is serviced two times a year. The fall and spring are the optimal times for this maintenance.

Make sure your condenser fan is in good working order by wiping down the fan blades and the coils. Before you get started, cut the power. Take the grill off and pull the blades out to clean them.

TIP! Once it gets cold outside, you should turn off the outdoor condenser unit. Avoid damaging the unit by turning it off when the outdoor temperature drops below 60 degrees.

Lubricate your condenser yearly if it has oil ports. Such ports tend to have coverings made of rubber or metal. 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.

Look for shade when placing a compressor outdoors. In this way, it will be cooling air that is already somewhat cooled. This saves energy.

TIP! Keep energy costs from rising by having your system serviced annually. When it’s checked out, the motor will be inspected, moving parts well oiled and the level of freon adjusted if necessary.

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. This will help you save on your energy bill.

TIP! Before you invest in any HVAC contractor, make sure you spend a good deal of time researching their reputations and credentials. Check with different references to determine the best one for your situation.

Make sure your HVAC systems is checked twice a year. Check into it twice a year before you head into the hot and cold months. Check it out just to be safe even if there is nothing broken.

TIP! Did you know an AC unit can freeze? There are sometimes also freezes that happen in a drain line, and this can be confused for a plumbing leak. If this is something you notice, switch the thermostat in your home to fan only so the compressor is disabled.

A well running HVAC is critical to keeping your home comfortable. If you aren’t performing regular maintenance, then the environment at home is not going to be a fun place to live. Do not let this happen by using these tips to have a properly working HVAC.
