Check Out This Article On Hvac That Offers Many Great Tips

TIP! Don’t hire a contractor until you know a little about what you are facing. A contractor cannot give an accurate estimate without looking at your system.

Many folks don’t know how to properly maintain an HVAC system, but it is something they should know how to do. That’s why it’s smart to hire a very skilled and professional HVAC contractor. The following article can assist you.

TIP! Each spring, try cleaning the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan. Turn the power off so nothing moves.

When you start making calls to get someone to help with your HVAC system, it’s a good idea to know what system you have before that phone call. Know the model and brand and find it’s maintenance history, if possible. This helps make sure the contractor has the information they will need.

TIP! A big mistake that people make is cutting the grass next to the outdoor condenser unit and allowing all of the clippings to blow inside the fan and coil. Aim the grass clippings in the other direction.

During the fall, leaves can gather around your HVAC. Make sure the fan’s grill is cleaned often during the fall. The air needs to be unobstructed into the fan, and any blockages create performance issues for the whole system.

TIP! When the leaves start to fall, the HVAC equipment can be harmed. Whenever leaves are falling, consistently clean the fan grill.

If the fan on your condenser includes oil ports, they must be lubricated annually. These are usually covered with rubber or metal caps. 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! If you can choose the place where your outdoor compressor goes, pick a spot with lots of shade. The cooler the air which goes in, the less work the unit will have to do.

Place your HVAC unit in the shade to boost efficiency. When your unit sucks in cooler air, then much less is required to cool it further, which saves you money on energy bills.

TIP! Replace any single-paned windows with double-paned versions. Windows that are double pane keep the cool air in and can greatly reduce the amount of time your air conditioner will need to run.

Have your HVAC serviced at least yearly. The normally recommended time for HVAC system inspections is once before the peak cooling season when it gets hot and you’ll be using your AC, and once before the peak heating season, during the cold months when you’re likely to be using your heat. Even if everything seems fine, check things out to find potential problems.

TIP! Turn off your air conditioner when no one is home to help save money. Even though the house will get hotter, it won’t get too bad if the unit is off.

An HVAC unit that is working properly can assure the comfort in a home. But, if you aren’t sure who to call, it can be quite frustrating. These suggestions should help you to keep your system running well.
