Tips And Tricks For Bettering Your HVAC Experience

TIP! If your HVAC is giving you problems, tour your home before calling a technician. Notice the temperature in each room.

Ignoring your HVAC system is not the wisest thing to do, and usually it is only paid attention to when it breaks down. When that occurs, it is then urgent. Locating a contractor to work on your unit, or to put in a new one, isn’t easy. This article will make the process easier.

TIP! Do not allow grass clippings to cover the outdoor unit of your HVAC system. Direct the clippings away from the equipment.

Before you start calling to find someone to fix your unit, make sure you know the type of system that is installed. Learn the brand and the model. This makes sure your contractor will be sufficiently prepared.

TIP! If your condenser comes with oil ports, you should lubricate it yearly. Such ports tend to have coverings made of rubber or metal.

Before contacting a repair service, do a short tour of the entire home. Know what part of the house is cold and which is hot. Taking this step aids a contractor in figuring out what the problem is and how to repair it as quickly as possible.

TIP! Look for shade when placing a compressor outdoors. When it draws in air for cooling, it will be more efficient because it will not need to work as hard to cool down the air.

In order to keep your outside condenser fan running efficiently, make sure the coils and the fan blades are cleaned before the cooling season begins. Always shut the power off before doing any work or cleaning on the unit. Take away all of the debris as well.

TIP! To boost the efficiency of your HVAC system, you should put your unit in a shady place. 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.

If your unit is outdoors, clean them regularly. You don’t know when things are going to pile up, like right after it’s windy or rains, and that can ruin your system. It can overheat, leading to disaster within your system.

TIP! Equipping your home with a programmable thermostat can be an excellent way to cut utility costs. You have greater control over the temperature settings with these.

Many homeowners forget to oil their condenser at least once per year, but it is required. You’ll see that the ports here are closed with a rubber or metal cap. Choose a SAE 20 oil whch is lightweight and non-detergent and place 10 drops or less into each port, ensuring it doesn’t overfill.

TIP! Save energy use and money by turning off the air conditioner if there is nobody home. The house will heat up when it is turned off, but only a certain amount.

Now you should be better educated when it comes to HVAC systems. 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. Use this advice to get the right one.
