TIP! If the fan condenser on your unit has ports for oil, make sure you lubricate it once a year. You will notice these ports have a rubber or metal cap covering them.

Before you choose an HVAC contractor, have an idea in your mind of what needs to be done.

For maximum efficiency, place outdoor units in a shady spot. You save money this way because the air conditioner is now pulling in cooler air, which is easier to cool further.

TIP! If you are going to be gone during the day or on vacation, turn the temperature up on your air conditioning unit. When you turn it off, the house heats up, but only to a certain threshold.

TIP! To help you pick a good HVAC contractor, carefully search for information that offers honest reviews about the companies that you might be looking to hire. Check with the BBB (Better Business Bureau), and look them up on review sites online to see what previous customers have to say about their experience.
