HVAC Getting You Down? These Tips Will Help

TIP! Before you contact people to assist you in getting your system fixed, know what kind of system you’re working with in the first place. Look for the model and brand number.

At first, trying to understand your HVAC may seem difficult. The reason for that is because a lot goes into this type of system. On the other hand, there is a wealth of ideas and knowledge you can use to simplify the matter.

TIP! Outdoor condenser units need to be cleaned regularly. Leaves and debris can accumulate quickly, particularly following storms, and that can cause problems for your system.

If problems arise with the HVAC system, check the entire house before contacting someone to come for repairs. Figure out which rooms are hot and cold. The contractor can probably figure out and fix the problem easier.

TIP! You need to lubricate parts of your fan condenser. These ports are often covered by a rubber or metal cap.

If there are condenser units as part of your HVAC system, clean them often as they tend to have lots of debris. You don’t know when things are going to pile up, like right after it’s windy or rains, and that can ruin your system. Overheating could occur, which will be problematic.

TIP! If the current location of your HVAC unit outside isn’t working, try having it moved to an area with more shade. When the air conditioner pulls in cooler air, it won’t have to do much more to cool it and that will save you a lot of money on energy bills.

Each spring it’s time to clean the inside of your condenser unit, including the fan and the sensitive coil. First, turn the power off so nothing moves when you’re working with it. Next, pop the grill off, put the blades out and start to gently clean them along with the unit.

TIP! It is very important that your HVAC system is serviced two times a year. The ideal thing to do would be to have it checked out in the fall and spring so you’re able to figure out if everything is ready for the cold and hot months.

If your fan condenser has oil ports, you must lubricate it once per year. These ports are often covered by a rubber or metal cap. Use SAE 20 oil that is non-detergent and lightweight, and put 10 drops or fewer in each port, but make sure to avoid overfilling them.

TIP! When colder weather arrives, switch off all outdoor condenser units. If the outside temp is under 60 degrees, turn the unit off to prevent damage.

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. It will reduce the temperature of the air going into the unit, meaning that it will not have to work as hard to cool it.

TIP! Installing a programmable digital thermostat can help save money. In fact, you can save as much as 10 percent on both heating and cooling when you turn your thermostat by by 10-15 percent for at least 8 hours daily.

Understanding how to work with the HVAC unit should be more apparent to you know. It’s really hard to get started with it unless you get motivated, so be sure that you take these things into account before you get started. This will ensure you great success.
