Get Helpful Tips About Hvac That Are Simple To Understand

TIP! Always make sure you are up-to-date about your HVAC unit. Write down what brand your system is along with the model number and, if they’re available, maintenance records.

Little is more frustrating than requiring a working HVAC during the hottest summer and coldest winter. Learning what you can about HVAC units will help you fix them or maintain them. Read on to learn about that.

TIP! Be careful when doing yard work that you do not get debris on or in your unit. Instead, make sure that the grass is shooting in the opposite direction.

Prior to choosing an HVAC customer, try to have an idea of what you want done. You might not be able to get a price quote unless you let the contractor see your current system first. In addition, you need to be able to tell the contractor what you have already tried. It’s important to know this beforehand.

TIP! If you need to decide the best place to put your outdoor compressor unit, consider putting it in a location that is in the shade. When your unit takes in cool air, it takes less energy to tool the air, thus boosting efficiency.

Clean the coils of your condenser fan each month. Except when cleaning the outside, turn the unit off when performing any type of maintenance. Also, it is important to clear the outside condenser unit from any debris that maybe trapped inside.

TIP! In order to boost efficiency, place new outdoor units or move your current unit to a place which resides in the shade. The air in the shade is cooler and can help save on energy costs.

When spring rolls around, give the condenser fan blades and coils a good clean. Don’t forget to disconnect the power first. Next, pop the grill off, put the blades out and start to gently clean them along with the unit.

TIP! When the weather starts to cool down, make sure you turn off outdoor condenser units. This should be done when the temperature drops below 60ºF to avoid damage.

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. Direct the clippings away from the equipment. This also applies when you blow leaves, so be very careful near your exterior HVAC units when you move debris.

TIP! Double pane your windows to prevent drafts. Good double pane windows keep cool air in during the summer and minimize your utility expenses.

Lubricate your fan condenser if it has oil ports. They generally have a rubber or metal cap on them. 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 way to save some money with A/C is by having a programmable thermostat installed. It may save you as much as 10 percent of your overall utility bill if you turn your thermostat down by 10-15 degrees for a portion of the day.

Getting help from a HVAC professional might be intimidating. But, with the right tips, you will know how to find a professional you can trust. You should now feel ready to tackle HVAC issues with these tips.
