HVAC Getting You Down? These Tips Will Help

TIP! Clean the debris from outside units often. Wind can pile up all sorts of debris against its grill.

All of the possible HVAC systems available make it a confusing decision for first-timers. What system should you get? Which size is the best? Which features are important? It can overwhelming to shop since so many new features are coming out each day. The tips in the following article will help you choose the correct system.

TIP! Clean the fan blades and coils in your condenser each spring. Be sure to turn the power off first; you don’t want anything to move.

If you’ve been having trouble with an HVAC system, look around your home before calling in people to help. Make a list of the rooms which are comfortable and which just aren’t. 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.

TIP! Your HVAC unit may suffer when trees start to lose their leaves. When the leaves fall from nearby trees, clean the grill of your fan often.

Understand what you want before talking to a contractor. They won’t be able to offer you a quote if they haven’t seen your system. If you are unable to explain the work that needs to be taken care of, the conversation will be even less fruitful. Know the right information ahead of time.

Fan Blades

TIP! Your HVAC unit requires regular maintenance at least two times per each year. Most homeowners choose to have their unit inspected during the spring and the fall months.

Clean your fan blades and coils each spring to ensure that your condenser fan operates at it’s best. Before you do clean the coils and fan blades, always take the precaution of turning off all power to the unit. Clean the outdoor condenser as well.

TIP! When it gets cold outside, the outdoor condenser unit should be turned off. This should be done when the temperature drops below 60ºF to avoid damage.

Lubricate the oil ports on your condenser once each year. These ports are typically covered with caps made of metal or rubber. Put about ten drops or less of a good non-detergent SAE 20 oil into each port.

TIP! One great way to save some cash when you’re working on keeping a home cool is to install a thermostat that’s programmable. Programmable thermostats can automatically dial back settings, saving you money.

It is very important that your HVAC system is serviced two times a year. Generally, you want it done in the fall and the spring. Even if you can’t see anything wrong, checking it may help you locate and repair some possible issues.

TIP! Keep energy costs from rising by having your system serviced annually. When they visit to service the unit they’re going to inspect the motors, oil the parts that move, and see how much freon is in your system.

Choosing a new HVAC unit can be perplexing and exhausting. The tips you just read will help you with that and much more. Use these suggestions to ensure your unit is running at peak efficiency.
