Expert Tips And Tricks For HVAC Success

TIP! Before making that repair phone call, make sure you know the specifics about your particular system. Find out the brand and model and, if possible, dig out the maintenance history.

The HVAC is truly an important topic for a homeowner. A homeowner stands to spend a great deal of money if his HVAC system does not work well. This article has some great tips to get you started, so read on!

TIP! The coils and blades on the fans should be cleaned once a year. First, turn off the power so that nothing will move as you are working on it.

Before calling for help, know the system you have. Learn the brand, model, and if you have it, the maintenance history. Then, you’ll be ready to tell the contractor what they need to know.

TIP! Don’t get grass clippings on your outside unit. Have the grass shoot in the opposite direction.

Clean any debris that accumulates on an external condenser unit. Particularly after bad weather, you should inspect your unit. The whole thing can overheat, causing major problems and possibly an enormous expense for you.

TIP! HVAC units may suffer when leaves are falling off the trees. Clean the fan grill often when leaves are falling.

If trees are losing leaves around your home, this can impact your HVAC unit. Be sure to clean your fan grill frequently when trees nearby are shedding. If your fan is obstructed, it can keep your system from working properly.

TIP! If your fan condenser has oil ports, you must lubricate it once per year. You can easily find the ports as they have a rubber or metal cap.

If your fan condenser has oil ports, you must lubricate it once per year. You can find these ports covered with rubber or metal caps. Your oil should be an SAE 20. This particular oil is very lightweight and it only requires about 10 drops per port.

TIP! A good place to place your compressor unit outside is in a shady spot. When it draws in air for cooling, it will be more efficient because it will not need to work as hard to cool down the air.

When you are choosing a location for the outdoor compressor unit, it’s preferable to use a shaded area. The cooler air that the unit can suck in, the less work it will need to do to further cool the air.

TIP! Have a smart thermostat installed. This will help you to keep the temperature at optimal levels.

Turn off outdoor condenser units when weather turns cold. If the temperature outside is less than 60ºF, be sure to turn off the unit so that you don’t damage it. This can ensure your unit is working well throughout the years without the cost of repairs.

Hvac System

TIP! Your home should never reach a dangerous temperature. Air conditioners can only really cool your home down 20 degrees or so within a reasonable time period.

The suggestions above should help you develop a strategy for keeping your HVAC system in good working order. A poorly operational HVAC system can become cumbersome as your electricity bills rise and maintenance costs increase, so having the right information is key to success. Keep these tips handy so you never forget anything.
