Secrets The HVAC Experts Don’t Want You To Know

TIP! Before selecting a HVAC repairman, know what you need done. They won’t be able to offer you a quote if they haven’t seen your system.

Not everyone knows about working on HVAC systems. This can make it hard to choose a good HVAC system or to deal with problems to your existing system. The information you will read will help you tremendously.

TIP! If you have condenser units outside your home, be sure to clean out the debris from them often. Falling leaves and wind or rain may cause debris to reduce the efficiency of your unit.

If you’ve been having trouble with an HVAC system, look around your home before calling in people to help. Figure out which rooms are hot and cold. This can help the contractor determine the problem areas quickly and fix the problem easily.

TIP! Lubricate your fan condenser at least once a year. A rubber or metal cap is typically placed over such ports.

Clean the coils and blades in your condenser at the beginning of summer. Prior to working on or cleaning the unit, be sure to turn off the power. The outside condenser unit should be kept free of leaves and other debris.

TIP! Look for shade when placing a compressor outdoors. When the unit sucks in cooler air, then less work is required to cool it further which in turn boosts the units efficiency.

Each spring, try cleaning the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan. Turn it off first so you don’t get hurt or break something. Remove the grill and carefully clean the blades and surrounding areas.

TIP! If the current location of your HVAC unit outside isn’t working, try having it moved to an area with more shade. This will help you save on your energy bill.

Some fan condensers may contain oil parts, and if yours does, ensure it is lubricated at least once per year. A rubber or metal cap is typically placed over such ports. You should select an SAE 20 oil since it is lightweight and does not contain detergent. Be sure to use just 10 drops or so, or your system may overfill.

TIP! When it gets cold outside, it is necessary to turn off outdoor condenser units. If the temperature outside is less than 60ºF, be sure to turn off the unit so that you don’t damage it.

When selecting the spot to put the outdoor compressor for your unit, choose somewhere that gets plenty of shade. When your unit takes in cool air, it takes less energy to tool the air, thus boosting efficiency.

TIP! If you own your own home or have permission from your landlord, replace your single pane windows with double paned versions. Double-pane windows keep inside air cooler, allowing you to reduce AC usage in the summertime.

Be sure to have twice annual HVAC system checks. This should be done in Fall and Spring to prepare it for the extreme months. Even though it may seem as nothing is wrong with the unit, a simple inspection can prove otherwise.

TIP! Air conditioners tend to ice up at times. Freezes also occur in your drain line.

Most people who own homes are not happy when something happens to their heat or air conditioning. Understanding them before you have a problem is ideal. Having these tricks and tips handy will help a homeowner solve any HVAC issues affordably and promptly.
