Who would want to come home to find a malfunctioning HVAC system waiting for them? Your HVAC unit is beyond important, and it is up to you to keep it operating when it counts. Use the recommendations below as part of your approach to maintaining your HVAC system.
Check out the system that you have before you call a professional. Learn the brand and the model. If you have to have someone come out to repair the unit, you will be able to help the contractor understand more about what is going on.
When you’re trying to cut your grass, don’t cover a unit outside with the clippings. Have the grass shoot in the opposite direction. When blowing leaves, do the same. Always take care when passing your HVAC units while moving leaves, grass or other debris.
If there are oil ports on your fan condenser, lubricate it annually. Such ports tend to have coverings made of rubber or metal. Choose an oil graded SAE 20, it is non-detergent and lightweight. Place about 10 drops into each of the ports, taking care that it does not overfill.
If you are choosing where to place your outdoor compressor device, try to put it in a place where there is plenty of shade. If you have a unit taking in air that’s cooler, it won’t have to work so hard to cool air that it sends to your home.
Boost energy efficiency by putting your condenser unit in the shade. As you get your air conditioner to suck in cool air it won’t have to do too much work to cool it which saves you some money.
Use the tips from this article to help your system run smoothly. It’s frustrating to come home after a long day to find out your system doesn’t work. Having to deal with repair costs makes things harder. Using the information in this article can help. Use them as necessary.
