HVAC Success In A Few Simple Tips

TIP! Be sure to clean the fan blades and coils of the condenser fan. Make sure to turn off the fan’s power first to be safe.

Many people think dealing with the HVAC is tough work. It really isn’t that difficult to learn about, though. This guide discusses what you need to know to make HVAC a simple subject for you.

TIP! When you are cutting the grass, be sure not to cover your outdoor units with clippings. Direct the clippings away from the equipment.

If your HVAC system is acting up, take a tour of the house prior to calling a professional. Make a list of the rooms which are comfortable and which just aren’t. This will help the repairman determine what the problem is.

TIP! If there are oil ports on your fan condenser, lubricate it annually. You will see rubber or metal caps covering the ports.

Clean your fan blades and coils each spring to ensure that your condenser fan operates at it’s best. Make sure your power is off before doing more than cleaning, such as working on the unit. Also, be sure to clear leaves and debris from your condenser unit.

TIP! It’s a good idea to put your outdoor compressor in a shady area. The cooler the air that the unit is able to access, the less work it has to perform.

Clean any debris that accumulates on an external condenser unit. Falling leaves and wind or rain may cause debris to reduce the efficiency of your unit. It can get overheated, which will cause problems with the whole system.

TIP! Condenser units for the outdoors should be shut off when it starts to get cold outside. Avoid damaging the unit by turning it off when the outdoor temperature drops below 60 degrees.

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. Then, pop off its grills, pull the blades out, and begin cleaning the unit and them gently.

TIP! If at all possible, install double-paned windows in your home instead of those with a single pane. Having double pane windows allows your air conditioning unit to be run much less during the summer, because the cool air is kept inside the home.

Check to determine if the fan condenser on your HVAC system is equipped with oil ports, and if it is, be sure to lubricate every year. These ports are often covered by a rubber or metal cap. Use a lightweight, detergent-free SAE 20 oil, putting 10 drops in each port.

TIP! Putting in a programmable thermostat is a smart way to cut back on air-conditioning costs. 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.

Working with your HVAC system doesn’t have to be difficult especially if you follow the suggestions that were given in the above article. Without these tips, the subject is much more difficult. Start today and in the end you’ll succeed!
