TIP! Before choosing an HVAC contractor, think of what you wish to have done. It is going to be hard to get a price estimate on the phone if the current system isn’t something they’ve seen.

Often, people feel overwhelmed trying to understand their HVAC. It does not have to be that way. This guide will help you get the most out of your HVAC unit.

TIP! Help the outside condenser fan run efficiently by cleaning the coils and fan blades before the summer starts. The power to the unit should be removed before you begin any maintenance, even cleaning.

Before you call someone to help you fix your system, be sure to know what sort of system you have in place. Get the brand, model name, and if you can you should get the maintenance history out. This will facilitate the process when your contractor asks for this information.

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. Have the grass shoot in the opposite direction.

If your HVAC system us giving you issues, take a look around the house prior to calling a contractor. Note which of your rooms are hot and which are cold. That knowledge can help the technician figure out what is going on.

TIP! If there are oil ports on your fan condenser, lubricate it annually. The port usually has either a rubber or metal cap on top of it.

Before the summer you should clean out your condenser fan’s blades and coils. Except when cleaning the outside, turn the unit off when performing any type of maintenance. Clean the outdoor condenser as well.

TIP! Turn off any outdoor condensers you have when the weather gets cold. To prevent damage, turn off your unit if the outside temperature is less than 60 degrees.

As the trees around your home lose leaves, it can cause your HVAC unit trouble. Frequently clean the fan grill when trees are shedding leaves. Because the fan requires a clear path for air to enter, you may encounter issues with your system if the fan gets blocked up.

TIP! It is always a good idea to swap out single pane windows for double pane ones. Double pane windows can help minimize how much you use your air conditioner in the summer, because they keep cool air inside the home.

If you have oil ports as part of the fan condenser, annual lubrication is key. These are usually covered with rubber or metal caps. Use SAE 20 oil that is non-detergent and lightweight, and put 10 drops or fewer in each port, but make sure to avoid overfilling them.

TIP! One great way to save some cash when you’re working on keeping a home cool is to install a thermostat that’s programmable. You have greater control over the temperature settings with these.

You can keep energy costs in your home lower by choosing to have professional maintenance done on your HVAC unit. During service the technician will check the motor and refill the system fluids. Your unit will last longer this way.

TIP! Turn off your air conditioner when no one is home to help save money. The house will heat up when it is turned off, but only a certain amount.

HVAC can become simple of you use the tips found above. Without going over the tips, it is very tricky to figure out an HVAC system on your own. Go ahead and get started and you’re sure to do a great job.
