Read About How To Get The HVAC Assistance You Need

TIP! Know what type of system you currently have before calling someone to fix it. Learn the brand, model, and if you have it, the maintenance history.

Many people don’t think about their HVAC until it’s too late. Then, it becomes critical quickly. It can be difficult to find a qualified HVAC professional to install a new system or fix the one you have. This article will guide you through this process.

TIP! If your HVAC is giving you problems, tour your home before calling a technician. Jot down the rooms that are hot and the ones that are cold.

Prior to putting in a service call on your HVAC, be able to identify it. Look for the maintenance history and brand and model. This will facilitate the process when your contractor asks for this information.

Check the whole house before you call for help. Determine which rooms feel cold and which feel hot. Doing so can help your technician fix your HVAC issue quickly.

TIP! In order for your new unit to be as efficient as possible, or to make older units more efficient, make sure it’s put in a shaded area. 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.

Keep your outdoor units free of debris when you are mowing the lawn. Aim your grass cuttings in a direction away from your unit. Make sure you move around the unit and blow the leaves away from it while blowing your leaves.

TIP! Turn off outdoor condenser units when weather turns cold. To prevent damage, turn off your unit if the outside temperature is less than 60 degrees.

Check to determine if the fan condenser on your HVAC system is equipped with oil ports, and if it is, be sure to lubricate every year. These ports have a metal covering. Sometimes it is rubber. Get an oil that is SAE 20 and put about 10 drops into each port, but don’t overfill it.

TIP! Install a thermostat you can program to save money on cooling your home. 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.

Be sure to place your outdoor unit in a shady spot to maximize efficiency. As you get your air conditioner to suck in cool air it won’t have to do too much work to cool it which saves you some money.

TIP! Shut off the air conditioning if nobody is home. With the system off, the house will only heat up to a certain temperature.

Turn off outdoor condenser units when weather turns cold. When the temperature goes below 60 degrees, shut off the unit in order to prevent damage. This will maximize the life of your unit.

TIP! Don’t let your house get too hot. Air conditioners really can only cool a home down about 20 degrees Fahrenheit within a reasonable amount of time.

You are done reading the article, and now you should be a bit more aware about HVAC systems. No matter what happens in the future, you’ll be prepared. Find the correct system by using this advice.
