Here’s Some Required Knowledge For Today’s HVAC Novices

TIP! Before you start calling to find someone to fix your unit, make sure you know the type of system that is installed. Know the brand name and model number.

Many homeowners are at a loss when the HVAC system collapses. To stop such a situation from becoming a real disaster, it pays to spend some time getting familiar with the topic. The tips listed here can assist homeowners in getting the help that they need.

TIP! Clean the condenser coils and fan at the beginning of the year to help the unit run efficiently. The power to the unit should be removed before you begin any maintenance, even cleaning.

Cleaning the blades and coils will help the system run better. Before you clean the surface, be sure to turn off the power. If you see debris, get rid of it.

TIP! Don’t let your outdoor HVAC units get smothered with clippings anytime you mow the yard. Aim the grass in a different direction from the unit.

Put outdoor units in the shade if you are installing them. It will reduce the temperature of the air going into the unit, meaning that it will not have to work as hard to cool it.

TIP! As the leaves are falling off the trees, your HVAC system can really take a hit. When the leaves fall from nearby trees, clean the grill of your fan often.

Your system should be checked twice a year. The best time of year to have the system checked is right before the weather begins to change. Even if everything seems okay, it doesn’t hurt to check things out.

TIP! Lubricate your condenser yearly if it has oil ports. You’ll find these ports are covered with a metal or rubber cap.

When colder weather arrives, switch off all outdoor condenser units. If temps go below 60 you run the risk of damaging a unit that remains on. This simple tip will help keep the system running efficiently for many years to come.

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. The cooler the air which goes in, the less work the unit will have to do.

To help lower cooling costs when not at home, make sure the air conditioner is turned off. Even though the house will get hotter, it won’t get too bad if the unit is off. When the AC is left running, your power bill will go up quite a bit.

Degrees Fahrenheit

TIP! Make sure your HVAC systems is checked twice a year. The spring and autumn times are the best time to have it checked.

Don’t allow your home to become dangerously hot. Air conditioners really can only cool a home down about 20 degrees Fahrenheit within a reasonable amount of time. If your house’s interior temperature hits 100 degrees Fahrenheit, you would only be able to cool it down just above 80 degrees. This isn’t a very safe condition for a homeowner to sleep in, especially when the humidity levels are considered.

TIP! When colder weather arrives, switch off all outdoor condenser units. If the outside temp is under 60 degrees, turn the unit off to prevent damage.

It’s messy for a homeowner when their heating and cooling system goes down. You must have this knowledge in advance though. Using the solid advice in the article above can be the best decision any homemaker can make.
