Helpful Hints For HVAC Novices And Pros

TIP! Know what type of system you currently have before calling someone to fix it. Write down the make, model, and any maintenance history.

Many people wonder about the HVAC unit but are afraid to tackle this weighty subject. However, this does not need to be true. This article has great and simple tips.

TIP! Each spring, clean the fan blades and coils on your condenser. Be sure to turn the power off first; you don’t want anything to move.

Prior to putting in a service call on your HVAC, be able to identify it. Learn the brand, model, and if you have it, the maintenance history. This information will be helpful to any contractor you hire to repair it.

TIP! Lubricate the oil ports on your condenser once each year. They are usually fitted with a rubber or metal cap.

Know what you need before you hire a contractor. Discussing the problem is simplified if you understand what has happened with the unit. If you don’t have any idea, they will have trouble giving you any sort of quote. Know the right information ahead of time.

TIP! It is a good idea to replace single-paned windows with ones that have double panes. Double pane windows will help keep your home cooler in the summer.

Clean the coils and blades in your condenser at the beginning of summer. Before you clean the surface, be sure to turn off the power. Take away all of the debris as well.

TIP! A programmable thermostat is a simple way to help save money on air conditioning costs. 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.

When you mow your lawn, take care that you don’t get grass clippings all over your outdoor unit. Make sure you shoot the clippings in the other direction from the unit. This also applies to blowing leaves or moving debris. Just be careful with that exterior HVAC unit.

TIP! Make sure to have your unit serviced once a year. This inspection will ensure that your unit is working efficiently, including a freon level and motor check, and oiling moving parts.

When selecting a location for an outdoor compressor, opt for a shady area, if possible. When it draws in air for cooling, it will be more efficient because it will not need to work as hard to cool down the air.

Have your HVAC serviced at least yearly. Your system should be inspected in Spring and Fall. A quick check is worth it to avoid problems down the road.

TIP! Do not allow your house to get extremely hot. It is only possible for an air conditioner to lower the temperature in a home by 20 degrees F in a short time.

This advice should make your HVAC issues a piece of cake to deal with. Remember to refer to these tips often along the way. Start as soon as you can for the best results.
