Read About How To Get The HVAC Assistance You Need

TIP! If your HVAC is running into problems, check out each room in your house before calling for assistance. Make a list of the rooms which are comfortable and which just aren’t.

Needing service on an HVAC system during cold or hot days is a serious frustration. The key to keeping your equipment running great is maintenance and finding quality service. Read this article to learn more.

TIP! Clean your fan and coils when the weather begins to warm. Always shut off all power to your unit for any work beyond superficial cleaning.

Know the name and type of your HVAC system before looking for a repair person. Know the brand name and model number. It is also helpful to have the maintenance history. This will help you give the new contractor the necessary information.

TIP! Be careful when doing yard work that you do not get debris on or in your unit. Direct the clippings away from the equipment.

If you have units that are condensers outside of the home, keep them free of debris. Debris can pile up after a storm, bringing potential damage with it. Overheating can occur, which often spells disaster for your system.

TIP! 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.

Clean the coils on the condenser fan from time to time. Before you do so, shut off the power to ensure that none of the parts will move while you work on it. Take the grill off and pull the blades out to clean them.

TIP! You want to put the outdoor compressor device in a shaded area. 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.

If your condenser comes with oil ports, you should lubricate it yearly. These ports are often covered by 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! If the current location of your HVAC unit outside isn’t working, try having it moved to an area with more shade. You save money this way because the air conditioner is now pulling in cooler air, which is easier to cool further.

Find a place that is shaded for your compressor. When the unit sucks in cooler air, then less work is required to cool it further which in turn boosts the units efficiency.

TIP! Your system should be checked twice a year. This should be checked often for debris and malfunctions.

If possible, put your HVAC in a shaded area if it is outside. Your air conditioner won’t have to work so hard if the air is sucks in is already cool.

TIP! Getting a programmable thermostats can be a terrific way to realize savings. Such thermostats help you save around ten percent when it comes to energy costs.

Don’t let the idea of hunting down an HVAC contractor intimidate you. Still, a little research goes a long way. Hopefully you are now prepared to tackle any issue that may come up with your HVAC system.
