HVAC Getting You Down? These Tips Will Help

TIP! Before contacting a repair service, do a short tour of the entire home. Figure out which rooms are too cool or warm.

Anyone who has a HVAC unit in their house knows the importance of properly maintaining it. An HVAC unit that runs poorly will only end up costing you money on pricey repairs. This article offers you tips to keep your HVAC in optimal condition.

Your HVAC system could suffer when trees begin dropping their leaves. Clean the fan grill often when leaves are falling. A blocked unit can quickly become a broken unit.

TIP! Put your outdoor unit in places with shade. You save money this way because the air conditioner is now pulling in cooler air, which is easier to cool further.

You must keep your HVAC systems oil ports lubricated annually. A rubber or metal cap is typically placed over such ports. Buy an SAE 20 product that is lightweight, and then put no more than ten drops into the ports.

TIP! Once it grows cold outside, turn off your outside condenser unit. When the temperature drops beneath 60 degrees, it’s time to cut off the unit to prevent damage.

It’s a good idea to put your outdoor compressor in a shady area. When the unit sucks in cooler air, then less work is required to cool it further which in turn boosts the units efficiency.

TIP! Update the windows in your home to double-paned if you own it. Double pane windows will allow you to use less air during the summer because cooler air will stay in your house.

Have the HVAC system checked twice a year at the least. This should be done in Fall and Spring to prepare it for the extreme months. Even if you can’t see anything wrong, checking it may help you locate and repair some possible issues.

TIP! To keep your system running smoothly have your system serviced once a year. During a maintenance visit, professionals can help by inspecting the system’s motor, oil the different moving parts as well as check the system’s freon levels.

If at all possible, install double-paned windows in your home instead of those with a single pane. Try to insulate your windows to prevent air from being lost. This also works during the cold months to keep the warm air inside.

TIP! Never let your home reach a dangerously hot temperature. Air conditioners can only really cool your home down 20 degrees or so within a reasonable time period.

Installing a programmable digital thermostat can help save money. If you adjust it to keep the house a little warmer or a little cooler during the time you are sleeping, you may see your energy bill go down by as much as ten percent. This will save you a lot of money during the year.

TIP! To help you pick a good HVAC contractor, carefully search for information that offers honest reviews about the companies that you might be looking to hire. Look at review sites and check with the BBB.

Now that you know a thing or two regarding HVAC systems, you understand how important it is to properly care for them. You don’t want a HVAC system that costs you more money. By choosing to implement these great tips, you are ensuring that your HVAC will function for quite some time.
