Tips And Tricks For Bettering Your HVAC Experience

TIP! Before calling anyone to repair your system, know what system you have. Write down the brand and the model and have all maintenance records on hand.

Maintaining your home’s HVAC system is a major part of home ownership. A smart homeowner recognizes the need to fully understand their HVAC system, and who to contact when the time comes to make those repairs. The following article can help.

TIP! What do you need done? Know this before calling a contractor. This will make the quote process much easier.

Know the name and type of your HVAC system before looking for a repair person. Find out the brand and model and, if possible, dig out the maintenance history. This will help make sure that the contractor you hire has all the necessary information.

TIP! When you cut the grass, make sure your mower isn’t tossing clippings toward your outdoor units. Now so the grass clippings are shot away from your unit.

If your HVAC system is acting up, take a tour of the house prior to calling a professional. Note which rooms are hot and which are cold. This gives the repairer a starting point to work from.

TIP! Your HVAC unit may suffer when trees start to lose their leaves. Frequently clean the fan grill when trees are shedding leaves.

Be sure to regularly clean debris from external condenser units. Things tend to pile up around these units, especially after storms come through, which could cause problems to your system. It will damage the system by overheating.

TIP! If your condenser comes with oil ports, you should lubricate it yearly. These are usually covered with rubber or metal caps.

If you have oil ports as part of the fan condenser, annual lubrication is key. They generally have a rubber or metal cap on them. Chose SAE 20 oil, which has been proven to be the most effective.

Make sure your HVAC unit is in the shade. The air in the shade is cooler and can help save on energy costs.

TIP! Put outdoor units in the shade if you are installing them. If the air your machine draws in is already cooler, it will require less energy to regulate before it’s filtered into your home.

If you are a homeowner, or if you can get permission from your landlord, install double-paned windows in place of any single panes in your home. Double pane windows will allow you to use less air during the summer because cooler air will stay in your house. This same effect also keeps warm air in during the winter months.

TIP! Turn off any outdoor condensers you have when the weather gets cold. Avoid damaging the unit by turning it off when the outdoor temperature drops below 60 degrees.

There aren’t many things that can help you more with your home than an HVAC system that works in the right way. Therefore, if it breaks, you need to know how to handle the situation. This information will help you decide what to do.
