Solid Advice About Hvac That Can Help Anyone

TIP! If problems arise with the HVAC system, check the entire house before contacting someone to come for repairs. Notice the temperature in each room.

Many people forget about their HVAC systems until they all the sudden quit working. When it fails it quickly becomes very important. It isn’t easy finding a repair man that you can rely on. Here are some suggestions to help you along the way.

TIP! Clean the coils of your condenser fan each month. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit.

Before contacting a repair service, do a short tour of the entire home. Jot down the rooms that are hot and the ones that are cold. Doing so can help your technician fix your HVAC issue quickly.

TIP! If you have oil ports as part of the fan condenser, annual lubrication is key. These ports are typically covered with caps made of metal or rubber.

Clean the fan blades and coils in your condenser each spring. First, turn off the power so that nothing will move as you are working on it. Then you need to get the grill popped off and get the blades out so you can clean them and your unit gently.

TIP! If you want to know where you should put an outdoor compressor, you should place it somewhere where there is a lot of shade. If it sucks in cool air, it will need to work less to coll the air inside, which can make it last longer.

Make sure clippings don’t get on your outdoor units when your mowing your lawn. Turn your lawnmower in the opposite direction. This also applies to blowing leaves or moving debris. Just be careful with that exterior HVAC unit.

TIP! Have your HVAC serviced at least yearly. It’s best to have it checked before you turn it on for the summer and again for the winter.

If you have a fan condenser with oil ports, it needs to be lubricated every year. You can find these ports covered with rubber or metal caps. 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.

Try to choose a shady place to locate the outdoor compressor device. The cooler air entering the unit will require less work to get to the proper temperature.

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.

To increase the efficiency of your HVAC unit, be sure to keep it in the shade. When your unit sucks in cooler air, then much less is required to cool it further, which saves you money on energy bills.

TIP! Keep energy costs from rising by having your system serviced annually. Make sure the person takes a look at the motor and examines the levels of freon.

Hopefully, you now understand more about HVAC systems in general. Whenever you need work done on your unit, or need to have the entire system replaced, you now know the best way to handle the situation. Find the correct system by using this advice.
