HVAC Advice From The Experts In The Field

TIP! What system do you have? You need this information to tell your contractor. Write down the brand and the model and have all maintenance records on hand.

Nobody wishes to get home to see that they have an air conditioner or heater that doesn’t work right. Your HVAC unit is beyond important, and it is up to you to keep it operating when it counts. These tips will ensure you stay on top of your game!

TIP! If you’ve been having trouble with an HVAC system, look around your home before calling in people to help. Determine which rooms are hotter or colder than they should be.

Know the name and type of your HVAC system before looking for a repair person. Take a look at the system or the owner’s manual to find the name and model number. This will help you give the new contractor the necessary information.

TIP! In order to keep your outside condenser fan running efficiently, make sure the coils and the fan blades are cleaned before the cooling season begins. Turn off the power if you are going to work on your HVAC system.

Clean your fan and coils when the weather begins to warm. Except when you do superficial cleaning, you need to always make sure the power is off on the unit. Clean the outside of your condenser unit regularly.

TIP! Each spring, try cleaning the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan. Before you do so, shut off the power to ensure that none of the parts will move while you work on it.

Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. Don’t forget to disconnect the power first. Then take off the grill, take the blades out, and gently clean them.

TIP! Make sure clippings don’t get on your outdoor units when your mowing your lawn. Shoot grass the other way.

You need to lubricate parts of your fan condenser. These ports have a metal covering. Sometimes it is rubber. Get an oil that is SAE 20 and put about 10 drops into each port, but don’t overfill it.

TIP! For maximum efficiency, place outdoor units in a shady spot. This will help you save on your energy bill.

When you are choosing a location for the outdoor compressor unit, it’s preferable to use a shaded area. The cooler the air that the unit is able to access, the less work it has to perform.

Double Pane

TIP! When it gets cold outside, turn off the outdoor condensers. If the temperature drops to under 60 degrees, you risk damage to the unit if you leave it on.

Replace single pane windows by installing double pane, if possible. Double pane windows can minimize the use of your air conditioner in hot weather since they keep the indoor air cooler. This also works during the cold months to keep the warm air inside.

TIP! To save money and be more comfortable in your home, install double-paned windows instead of single pane. Double-pane windows keep inside air cooler, allowing you to reduce AC usage in the summertime.

Use these tips to master your HVAC system. A breakdown of your unit can be frustrating. When you thing about how much it will cost to repair, things get even worse. With these tips, all of this may be prevented. When doing maintenance on an HVAC system, have this advice in mind.
