Read The HVAC Advice That Should Not Be Missed

TIP! Understand what you want before talking to a contractor. It’s hard to get an estimate since they haven’t look at your system.

The HVAC is something that you only notice when it does not work. Once that happens, fixing the issue quickly is critical. Selecting the best contractor to fix or install an HVAC need not be intimidating. The following article offers suggestions on how to navigate through the whole process.

TIP! Make sure that you regularly clean debris that might build up on external condenser units. Leaves and debris can accumulate quickly, particularly following storms, and that can cause problems for your system.

Regularly remove debris from outside condenser units. Falling leaves and wind or rain may cause debris to reduce the efficiency of your unit. If you do not, the unit may get too hot and cause additional problems.

TIP! Every spring you need to make sure your condenser fan’s coils and blades on the fan part are clean. Start by turning off the power to avoid having anything move when you work on it.

Each spring, clean the fan blades and coils on your condenser. Before you get started, cut the power. Next, pop off the grill, pull out the blades and start cleaning them and the unit itself off gently.

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.

When you cut the grass, don’t cover the outdoor units with their clippings. Make sure you shoot the clippings in the other direction from the unit. This same tip applies when you are blowing fallen leaves around the yard. Grass and leaves pose a serious problem for the internal functioning of your unit.

TIP! When the trees are losing their leaves, your HVAC unit can suffer. Make sure the unit’s fan grill is cleaned frequently when the leaves begin to fall.

Some fan condensers may contain oil parts, and if yours does, ensure it is lubricated at least once per year. Most of these ports have some sort of protective cap covering them. Use SAE 20 oil that is lightweight and detergent free, and put ten drops or fewer into each one. Make sure not to overfill them.

TIP! If the fan on your condenser includes oil ports, they must be lubricated annually. A rubber or metal cap is typically placed over such ports.

It is very important that your HVAC system is serviced two times a year. This should be done in the fall and again in the spring. This will help you to avoid problems.

TIP! Have the HVAC system serviced twice per year. This should be done in Fall and Spring to prepare it for the extreme months.

Installing a programmable digital thermostat can help save money. If you adjust it to keep the house a little warmer or a little cooler during the time you are sleeping, you may see your energy bill go down by as much as ten percent. In addition, some models make things really easy on you, allowing you to adjust them from the computer.

TIP! Turn off your outdoor condenser when it becomes cold out. If it’s lower than 60 degrees, the time has come to turn it off.

Hopefully, you now understand more about HVAC systems in general. There are certain things you need to do and certain things you should avoid doing. Use these tips to ensure great success.
