HVAC Can Be Easy With This Guide

Many people think the HVAC is too difficult for them to understand. That isn’t true, though. This guide provides some great advice that makes understanding easy.

TIP! Clean your fan blades and coils each spring to ensure that your condenser fan operates at it’s best. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit.

Understand what you want before talking to a contractor. It is going to be hard to get a price estimate on the phone if the current system isn’t something they’ve seen. If you don’t have any idea, they will have trouble giving you any sort of quote. So, you should know this beforehand.

TIP! Every spring you should clean the coils and fan blades on your condenser fan. First, make sure the power is off to ensure nothing moves while you are working.

Cleaning the blades and coils will help the system run better. Always shut the power off before doing any work or cleaning on the unit. Clean the outside of your condenser unit regularly.

TIP! When you’re trying to cut your grass, don’t cover a unit outside with the clippings. Direct the clippings away from the equipment.

Every spring you should clean the coils and fan blades on your condenser fan. First, turn off the power so that nothing will move as you are working on it. Then you need to get the grill popped off and get the blades out so you can clean them and your unit gently.

TIP! If you want things to be more efficient, get new units outside or have your current one moved into the shade. This will help ensure that the AC is pulling in cooler air, reducing the amount of work it has to do and saving you money.

Don’t let your outdoor HVAC units get smothered with clippings anytime you mow the yard. Shoot the grass away from the unit. This also applies to blowing leaves or moving debris. Just be careful with that exterior HVAC unit.

TIP! When it gets cold outside, turn off the outdoor condensers. If it’s less than 60 degrees outside, turn the unit off.

Leaves falling from trees can wreak havoc with your HVAC unit. Make sure you clean out your fan grill often once nearby trees start shedding their leaves. Because the fan requires a clear path for air to enter, you may encounter issues with your system if the fan gets blocked up.

TIP! One way to save some money with A/C is by having a programmable thermostat installed. Such thermostats help you save around ten percent when it comes to energy costs.

You must keep your HVAC systems oil ports lubricated annually. You will see rubber or metal caps covering the ports. Choose a SAE 20 oil whch is lightweight and non-detergent and place 10 drops or less into each port, ensuring it doesn’t overfill.

TIP! To keep your system running smoothly have your system serviced once a year. The contractor should oil the parts that move and check the motor and freon levels.

It isn’t hard to work with the HVAC system when you have the right advice. Without information such as that found above, the topic can be tough to crack. Just get started on the right path and everything will work out great!
