HVAC Do’s And Don’ts For The Average Person

TIP! Clean your condenser’s fan blades and coil in the spring. Start by turning off the power to avoid having anything move when you work on it.

It is not an option to let your HVAC system fail. Do you want to understand how to keep it in the best condition? This article will help you to become educated on the topic.

TIP! Cover your unit when you are mowing the lawn. Instead, make sure that the grass is shooting in the opposite direction.

Tour your home before calling a contractor. Make note of which rooms are cold and which are hot. If you do this, it will be a great help to the future contractor, who will now be able to quickly locate the problem issue.

Regularly remove debris from outside condenser units. Your HVAC system may run into problems after storms if it is surrounded by debris. Overheating could occur, which will be problematic.

TIP! It’s a good idea to put your outdoor compressor in a shady area. If you have a unit taking in air that’s cooler, it won’t have to work so hard to cool air that it sends to your home.

When you are cutting the grass, be sure not to cover your outdoor units with clippings. Direct the grass clippings in a direction away from the HVAC unit. When blowing leaves, do the same. Always take care when passing your HVAC units while moving leaves, grass or other debris.

TIP! You can boost the efficiency of your HVAC unit by replacing it with a new energy efficient one or moving your old one to a shady outside location. When your unit sucks in cooler air, then much less is required to cool it further, which saves you money on energy bills.

If the fan condenser on your unit has ports for oil, make sure you lubricate it once a year. A rubber or metal cap is typically placed over such ports. Pick a type of SAE 20 oil that is non-detergent and lightweight. Place 10 or less drops into every port to avoid overfilling.

TIP! Have your heating and cooling system inspected twice a year. This should happen in the fall and the spring.

Turn off any outdoor condensers you have when the weather gets cold. If temps go below 60 you run the risk of damaging a unit that remains on. This can ensure your unit is working well throughout the years without the cost of repairs.

TIP! If the house is yours or you’re permitted to, replace the windows that are single pane with windows that are double pane. Having a double pane window helps limit your need for air conditioning during the summer months.

Avoid allowing your home to ever get exceedingly hot. Air conditioners only cool down a home by 20 degrees. If the temperature in your home reaches 100 degree Fahrenheit, it will only reduce it to 80 or more. You may suffer adverse effects from letting the house get that hot, too.

TIP! Turn your AC off if no one is at home. Even though the house will get hotter, it won’t get too bad if the unit is off.

Clearly, taking proper care of the HVAC system is essential. If it breaks, it can be quite costly to get up and running again. Don’t let this happen; work on using the advice you were given above.
