TIP! What system do you have? You need this information to tell your contractor. Write down the brand and the model and have all maintenance records on hand.

If you want to increase your understanding of HVAC maintenance, you are in the right place. This article will help you improve your knowledge base. Read over it carefully, and you will find some valuable information.

TIP! Clean the condenser coils and fan at the beginning of the year to help the unit run efficiently. Prior to working on or cleaning the unit, be sure to turn off the power.

Keeping the outside condenser clean of debris and leaves will improve the system’s efficiency. Always shut the power off before doing any work or cleaning on the unit. Leaves and debris can build up inside the unit and cause damage.

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. You never know when things can pile up, especially after a windy or rainy storm, and that can throw a wrench in your system.

Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. First, the power should be turned off so things don’t move as you work. Then, pop off its grills, pull the blades out, and begin cleaning the unit and them gently.

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.

As the leaves are falling off the trees, your HVAC system can really take a hit. Make certain you are cleaning the fan grill often if trees nearby have leaves that are falling. The fan must not have anything in the way so that air can flow into it, and if it is clogged, you’ll have a lot of headaches eventually.

TIP! Having a programmable thermostat installed is a money saving idea. This will help you to keep the temperature at optimal levels.

If the condenser fan has oil parts, then you need to lubricate it at least once per year. You can easily find the ports as they have a rubber or metal cap. Use a lightweight, detergent-free SAE 20 oil, putting 10 drops in each port.

TIP! Service your HVAC yearly. During the service check, the system motor will be inspected, the moving parts will be oiled and the freon levels will be checked Small problems can occur in any of these areas and lead to serious issues if ignored for too long.

Put your outdoor unit in places with shade. If the air your machine draws in is already cooler, it will require less energy to regulate before it’s filtered into your home.

TIP! If everyone is out, turn the air conditioner off. This will save you money on your energy bills.

Find your away around the HVAC system with the tips listed here. It’s just something you need to take your time with so you don’t break anything on accident or something of that nature. Good luck with your HVAC and feeling comfortable in your home.
