Save Cash By Getting Your HVAC Work Done The Right Way

TIP! What system do you have? You need this information to tell your contractor. You need to know who manufactured the product and the item number.

HVAC isn’t an impossible topic to study, but it does require some time and serious dedication to fully understand. Still, you can learn and become more comfortable with it. Keep reading for some great tips on the subject.

TIP! Understand what you want before talking to a contractor. It will be difficult for an HVAC contractor to provide you with an estimate on the phone without knowing what your current setup is.

Before you start calling to find someone to fix your unit, make sure you know the type of system that is installed. Take a look at the system or the owner’s manual to find the name and model number. This will let you know that you’re able to give the contractor the information that can help them.

TIP! Don’t let grass clippings pile up against your outdoor condenser. Direct the grass clippings in a direction away from the HVAC unit.

Clean the coils and blades in your condenser at the beginning of summer. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit. Leaves and debris can build up inside the unit and cause damage.

TIP! If you can choose the place where your outdoor compressor goes, pick a spot with lots of shade. This will limit the work that it has to do.

Be sure to clean external condenser units regularly. Debris quickly gathers here, even more so if there is a storm. This can cause major issues with your system. It can cause your system to malfunction by overheating.

TIP! For maximum efficiency, place outdoor units in a shady spot. As your air conditioner sucks in cool air, little will have to be done to cool it any further, saving you a ton on your energy bills.

Clean the coils on the condenser fan from time to time. Be sure to turn the power off first; you don’t want anything to move. Next, pop off the grill, pull out the blades and start cleaning them and the unit itself off gently.

TIP! During cold weather , be sure to turn off outdoor condenser units. If the outside temp is under 60 degrees, turn the unit off to prevent damage.

You need to lubricate parts of your fan condenser. You can find these ports covered with rubber or metal caps. Your oil should be an SAE 20. This particular oil is very lightweight and it only requires about 10 drops per port.

TIP! A good way to save money with your air conditioning is by installing a programmable thermostat. A thermostat that’s programmable is going to save you around ten percent on the heating and cooling costs you have to pay when you turn it back about fifteen percent for a part of the day.

Try to choose a shady place to locate the outdoor compressor device. If your unit is sucking in cooler air, it will have less work to do to cool that air as it sends it inside which boosts efficiency.

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

If you are ready to learn about HVAC systems, it isn’t hard. Apply this advice and you will be in great shape. Use the tips and you might be able to make money soon.
