HVAC Tips, Tricks And Techniques You Need

TIP! Make a circuit around your home before calling for help with your HVAC. Figure out which rooms are hot and cold.

When the HVAC system fails, you may not understand the next steps to take. To prevent real inconvenience and misery, it is worth taking the time to learn about the subject. The tips listed here can assist homeowners in getting the help that they need.

TIP! If the condenser for your HVAC system is located outside, make sure you clear away any debris that might settle in or around it. Things pile up after storms and damage your system.

If your HVAC is giving you problems, tour your home before calling a technician. You will be looking to see which of your rooms feel hotter or colder than they should be. Give this information to your contractor when they arrive.

Outside Condenser

TIP! If the fan condenser on your unit has ports for oil, make sure you lubricate it once a year. They are usually fitted with a rubber or metal cap.

Help the outside condenser fan run efficiently by cleaning the coils and fan blades before the summer starts. Make sure your power is off before doing more than cleaning, such as working on the unit. Additionally, remove leaves and any other debris from the outside condenser unit.

TIP! When selecting the spot to put the outdoor compressor for your unit, choose somewhere that gets plenty of shade. 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.

Each spring, try cleaning the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan. First, turn off the power so that nothing will move as you are working on it. Then, take the grill off, pull the blades out, and gently clean them as well as the unit itself.

TIP! If at all possible, install double-paned windows in your home instead of those with a single pane. Double pane windows will help keep your home cooler in the summer.

If the fan on your condenser includes oil ports, they must be lubricated annually. Most of these ports have some sort of protective cap covering them. Your oil should be an SAE 20. This particular oil is very lightweight and it only requires about 10 drops per port.

TIP! Equipping your home with a programmable thermostat can be an excellent way to cut utility costs. It may save you as much as 10 percent of your overall utility bill if you turn your thermostat down by 10-15 degrees for a portion of the day.

A shady spot is always a good choice for the placement of your outdoor compressor. Your unit won’t have to work as hard to cool the inside air if the outside air it sucks from is cooler.

TIP! To help keep your energy costs down, have your heating and cooling system serviced at least once a year. This inspection will ensure that your unit is working efficiently, including a freon level and motor check, and oiling moving parts.

Experiencing serious problems with your HVAC during the dead of winter or heat of summer can spell big trouble. However, homeowners can avoid this disaster by having the unit serviced twice a year. Use these suggestions to increase the performance of your unit.
