Save Cash By Getting Your HVAC Work Done The Right Way

TIP! Get all of the details regarding a broken system before calling for repair. Write down what brand your system is along with the model number and, if they’re available, maintenance records.

HVAC systems can bring you immense joy and immense pain. They can be costly to repair and can lead to miserable living conditions. The key is to heed sound HVAC maintenance tips like this in this piece.

TIP! Before you choose someone to do HVAC work, figure out what they need to do for you. It is going to be hard to get a price estimate on the phone if the current system isn’t something they’ve seen.

Before calling someone to repair your system, make sure you know what kind of HVAC system you actually have. Look for the model and brand number. Then, you’ll be ready to tell the contractor what they need to know.

TIP! Before the summer you should clean out your condenser fan’s blades and coils. Prior to working on or cleaning the unit, be sure to turn off the power.

Clean your fan and coils when the weather begins to warm. The power to the unit should be removed before you begin any maintenance, even cleaning. Remove leaves and debris from the outside condenser.

TIP! Your outdoor HVAC units might suffer when your trees lose leaves. When you see nearby trees shedding their leaves, clean the fan grill on your unit constantly.

Every spring you need to make sure your condenser fan’s coils and blades on the fan part are clean. First, make sure the power is off to ensure nothing moves while you are working. Take the grill off and pull the blades out to clean them.

Grass Clippings

TIP! If you can, install double-paned windows throughout your home. Double pane windows can minimize the use of your air conditioner in hot weather since they keep the indoor air cooler.

Make sure that you do not cover your outdoor components with grass clippings when you are trimming the grass. Make sure the grass does not get in your unit. This includes grass clippings and leaves.

TIP! Putting in a programmable thermostat is a smart way to cut back on air-conditioning costs. It changes the temperature so the system isn’t in use when it’s cooler outside or no one is home.

If the fan on your condenser includes oil ports, they must be lubricated annually. These are usually covered with rubber or metal caps. Use a lightweight, detergent-free SAE 20 oil, putting 10 drops in each port.

TIP! Keep energy costs from rising by having your system serviced annually. During a maintenance visit, professionals can help by inspecting the system’s motor, oil the different moving parts as well as check the system’s freon levels.

Try to choose a shady place to locate the outdoor compressor device. 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.

TIP! Keep your air conditioner off when people aren’t home to save you money. The house will only heat to certain level and a decent HVAC system can quickly cool this down once you are home.

If you want to be comfortable in a home it’s a good idea to get a good HVAC system setup. Failing to maintain this type of system will lead to discomfort. Make sure that you do not let this happen.
