Get More From Your HVAC With This Article

TIP! Before making that repair phone call, make sure you know the specifics about your particular system. Learn the brand and the model.

During extreme temperatures, it can be very annoying to need repairs to your HVAC system. Learning about the topic means being able to make decisions down the road. Read on to learn more.

TIP! If your HVAC doesn’t seem to be working properly, check things out yourself prior to calling in a technician. While you are walking through the house, gauge which rooms are the coolest and which are the warmest.

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. Write down the make, model, and any maintenance history. This will help make sure that the contractor you hire has all the necessary information.

TIP! Clean the debris from outside units often. Debris can pile up at rates that increase during rainy or windy weather, and this can foul up the inner workings of your system.

Help the outside condenser fan run efficiently by cleaning the coils and fan blades before the summer starts. Always shut the power off before doing any work or cleaning on the unit. Clean the outside of your condenser unit regularly.

TIP! As the temperature outside drops, remember to turn off your outdoor condenser unit. If it’s lower than 60 degrees, the time has come to turn it off.

Regularly remove debris from outside condenser units. Falling leaves and wind or rain may cause debris to reduce the efficiency of your unit. It can overheat, leading to disaster within your system.

TIP! If at all possible, install double-paned windows in your home instead of those with a single pane. Having double pane windows allows your air conditioning unit to be run much less during the summer, because the cool air is kept inside the home.

Clean the coils on the condenser fan from time to time. First, turn the power off so nothing moves when you’re working with it. Secondly, pop the grill off, take the blades off and clean them as well as the actual unit.

TIP! If you’re away from home during the day, raise the temperature setting on your air conditioner to save money. By raising the temperature from, for example 78 to 80, your house will be warmer, but only up to 80 before your AC kicks in.

Some fan condensers may contain oil parts, and if yours does, ensure it is lubricated at least once per year. These are usually covered with rubber or metal caps. Get an oil that is SAE 20 and put about 10 drops into each port, but don’t overfill it.

Put outdoor units in the shade if you are installing them. This will help you save on your energy bill.

TIP! Find an air conditioner calculator online to determine what models are best for you. If the unit is too large, it won’t cool more than a smaller unit, just less efficiently.

When you have no education on HVAC, finding the best HVAC contractor can be hard. However, the right knowledge makes the process less daunting. Hopefully you are now prepared to tackle any issue that may come up with your HVAC system.
