Make Better Choices Thanks To This HVAC Advice

TIP! Cleaning the blades and coils will help the system run better. Always shut the power off before doing any work or cleaning on the unit.

It is essential that your HVAC system is properly maintained. Homeowners can pay a fortune if their HVAC system is not running properly. To fully understand what you can do to have a smooth operating HVAC system, check out the useful tips in this article.

TIP! Regularly remove debris from outside condenser units. Falling leaves and wind or rain may cause debris to reduce the efficiency of your unit.

If there are condenser units as part of your HVAC system, clean them often as they tend to have lots of debris. The dirt could pile up and harm your system. This can lead to overheating.

TIP! Make sure clippings don’t get on your outdoor units when your mowing your lawn. Have the grass shoot in the opposite direction.

Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. Before you do anything, however, turn the power off. Next, pop off the grill, pull out the blades and start cleaning them and the unit itself off gently.

TIP! If you are choosing where to place your outdoor compressor device, try to put it in a place where there is plenty of shade. In this way, it will be cooling air that is already somewhat cooled.

When you are cutting the grass, be sure not to cover your outdoor units with clippings. Direct the clippings away from the equipment. This also applies to leaf blowing and any other yard work that results in debris.

TIP! If you want things to be more efficient, get new units outside or have your current one moved into the shade. It will reduce the temperature of the air going into the unit, meaning that it will not have to work as hard to cool it.

Lubricate your fan condenser if it has oil ports. You will see rubber or metal caps covering the ports. 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.

For maximum efficiency, place outdoor units in a shady spot. The air in the shade is cooler and can help save on energy costs.

TIP! Replace single pane windows by installing double pane, if possible. Windows that are double pane keep the cool air in and can greatly reduce the amount of time your air conditioner will need to run.

Your system should be checked twice a year. The fall and spring are the optimal times for this maintenance. Even if nothing seems wrong, checking it out can help you find and fix potential issues.

TIP! Putting in a programmable thermostat is a smart way to cut back on air-conditioning costs. Such thermostats help you save around ten percent when it comes to energy costs.

Now that you have read this, you should be better prepared to keep your system running properly. A faulty HVAC can cost you a plethora of money and time. By using these excellent tips, your HVAC unit will function correctly for many years to come.
