TIP! If trees are losing leaves around your home, this can impact your HVAC unit. When you see nearby trees shedding their leaves, clean the fan grill on your unit constantly.

If problems arise with the HVAC system, check the entire house before contacting someone to come for repairs. Find out which rooms are hot and which are cold. The contractor can probably figure out and fix the problem easier.

TIP! If your fan condenser has oil ports, you must lubricate it once per year. They generally have a rubber or metal cap on them.

TIP! Make sure your HVAC systems is checked twice a year. The fall and spring are the optimal times for this maintenance.

If you have oil ports as part of the fan condenser, annual lubrication is key. Most of these ports have some sort of protective cap covering 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! When it gets cold outside, the outdoor condenser unit should be turned off. This means that you should turn it off to prevent damage if the weather falls under 60 degrees Farenheit.

When selecting a location for an outdoor compressor, opt for a shady area, if possible. The cooler air entering the unit will require less work to get to the proper temperature.

TIP! Double pane your windows to prevent drafts. You can reduce your energy costs from energy leaking out through your windows by installing window that are double-paned.

No one can deny that it is disastrous to face life with a broken air conditioner in the heat of summer or a failed heating system in the cold of winter. But, if they have armed themselves with knowledge in advance, the situation need not be so dire. The tips you just read will help you with whatever comes your way.
