Tips And Tricks For Bettering Your HVAC Experience

TIP! What system do you have? You need this information to tell your contractor. Know what the manufacturer’s name is, which particular model you have and what’s gone on with the unit in the past.

HVAC information has been sweeping the nation as more and more people are becoming interested in performing the maintenance and repairs themselves. However, it’s still a complicated subject. That isn’t true, though. With this guide you will find that there are some great pieces of advice to follow that makes this easy.

TIP! By the end of spring, the fan blades and coils of your condenser should be thoroughly cleaned, so operation can proceed with greater efficiency. Make sure your power is off before doing more than cleaning, such as working on the unit.

What system do you have? You need this information to tell your contractor. Learn the brand, model, and if you have it, the maintenance history. Then, you’ll be ready to tell the contractor what they need to know.

TIP! Outdoor condenser units need to be cleaned regularly. You can never tell when things will pile up, especially following rain or wind storms.

If you have oil ports as part of the fan condenser, annual lubrication is key. These are usually covered with rubber or metal caps. Pick a type of SAE 20 oil that is non-detergent and lightweight. Place 10 or less drops into every port to avoid overfilling.

If possible, put your HVAC in a shaded area if it is outside. The unit will have to do less work cooling this air.

TIP! You can boost the efficiency of your HVAC unit by replacing it with a new energy efficient one or moving your old one to a shady outside location. As you get your air conditioner to suck in cool air it won’t have to do too much work to cool it which saves you some money.

During cold weather , be sure to turn off outdoor condenser units. If you get into temperatures that are less than 60 degrees you need the unit to be shut off so it doesn’t get damaged. This will help keep it in good condition for many years.

TIP! 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. Good double pane windows keep cool air in during the summer and minimize your utility expenses.

You can keep energy costs in your home lower by choosing to have professional maintenance done on your HVAC unit. During service the technician will check the motor and refill the system fluids. This will keep you energy efficient and comfortable.

TIP! Get your HVAC unit serviced yearly. The service will include motor inspection, oiling of moving parts, and a freon level check.

Don’t let your house get too hot. An air conditioning unit is really only able to reduce the temperature by twenty degrees in a short time span. If you have your home at above 100 degrees then you can only get it to about 80 or above. Taking into consideration the humidity level, this may not even be adequate for the human body to recover from excessive heat while sleeping.

TIP! If everyone is out, turn the air conditioner off. When you turn the air conditioner off, the house may heat up a little but only a certain amount.

It isn’t hard to work with the HVAC system when you have the right advice. Keep these tips at the ready. Keep learning and reading, and you will be prepared for whatever comes in the future!
