Great Advice That You May Not Know Regarding HVAC Equipment

TIP! Avoid showering your outdoor unit with grass clippings when you mow the lawn. Make certain the debris goes away from it.

Anyone who has a HVAC unit in their house knows the importance of properly maintaining it. It can be very costly to have a unit that does not run well. Your HVAC is a critical appliance in your home, so read on for some insightful strategies to ensure that you get as much service from it as you possibly can.

If your unit is outdoors, clean them regularly. The dirt could pile up and harm your system. It may even overheat, which can ruin your system.

TIP! Put outdoor condensers in the shade. This will help you save on your energy bill.

As the leaves are falling off the trees, your HVAC system can really take a hit. Be sure to clean your fan grill frequently when trees nearby are shedding. The fan should have a clear path for air to come in. If it is blocked, your system will suffer.

TIP! Update the windows in your home to double-paned if you own it. In warmer months, these windows will help to maintain the cooler inside temperature.

Lubricate your fan condenser if it has oil ports. These ports are often covered by a rubber or metal cap. 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! Equipping your home with a programmable thermostat can be an excellent way to cut utility costs. Programmable thermostats can automatically dial back settings, saving you money.

When you are choosing a location for the outdoor compressor unit, it’s preferable to use a shaded area. When your unit is bringing in cool air, it will not have to work as hard to cool the air as it moves it inside, boosting efficiency.

TIP! Regularly having your HVAC system serviced can help keep your heating and cooling bills down. The motor should be checked, the parts oiled and the freon levels inspected.

If the current location of your HVAC unit outside isn’t working, try having it moved to an area with more shade. Your air conditioner won’t have to work so hard if the air is sucks in is already cool.

TIP! Your home should not have temperatures that are too hot. Expect an air conditioning unit to drop the temperature down 20 degrees within a short amount of time.

Now that you have read this, you should be better prepared to keep your system running properly. Faulty HVAC systems can cost you quite a bit of money in maintenance and bills. Remember this advice in order to ensure that your HVAC remains in tip top condition.
