Learn How To Get HVAC Issues Taken Care Of

TIP! If your HVAC doesn’t seem to be working properly, check things out yourself prior to calling in a technician. Jot down the rooms that are hot and the ones that are cold.

An HVAC system that’s good will be a welcome addition to any home, but ones that don’t work well can cause trouble. Repairing an HVAC unit is expensive and it can take a while before your home is once again a comfortable environment. Below, you will find tips to help you properly maintain your HVAC system so that you don’t ever have to go without it.

TIP! 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.

If the outside of your home has condenser units, ensure they are constantly cleaned. You can never tell when things will pile up, especially following rain or wind storms. These can wreak havoc on your units. Overheating can occur, which often spells disaster for your system.

TIP! Your HVAC system could suffer when trees begin dropping their leaves. Cleaning your unit is very important for its effectiveness.

When the leaves start to fall, the HVAC equipment can be harmed. Make sure you clean out your fan grill often once nearby trees start shedding their leaves. The fan must stay clear in order to function, and if it gets blocked, you will have to contend with problems.

TIP! Make certain that an outdoor unit is in the shade. The cooler the air that the unit is able to access, the less work it has to perform.

If there are oil ports on your fan condenser, lubricate it annually. They are usually fitted with a rubber or metal cap. Choose an oil graded SAE 20, it is non-detergent and lightweight. Place about 10 drops into each of the ports, taking care that it does not overfill.

TIP! Put outdoor condensers in the shade. If your air conditioner is able to constantly suck in cool air, it won’t have to work overtime to cool your space, which can in turn save you money on your electricity bills.

When selecting a location for an outdoor compressor, opt for a shady area, if possible. If it sucks in cool air, it will need to work less to coll the air inside, which can make it last longer.

TIP! Install a programmable thermostat to save energy costs. Programmable thermostats can reduce your power HVAC energy costs by as much as ten percent, just by dialing back your thermostat ten or fifteen percent up to eight daily hours.

It is very important that your HVAC system is serviced two times a year. The normally recommended time for HVAC system inspections is once before the peak cooling season when it gets hot and you’ll be using your AC, and once before the peak heating season, during the cold months when you’re likely to be using your heat. Even if nothing seems wrong, checking it out can help you find and fix potential issues.

TIP! Service your HVAC unit at least one time a year. When it’s checked out, the motor will be inspected, moving parts well oiled and the level of freon adjusted if necessary.

Your home’s HVAC system is critical to providing a comfortable environment in your home. Without proper maintenance of your HVAC system, your home will not be a comfortable place to be. Use the tips located above to help you maintain your system or choose a new system.
