Top HVAC Secrets For Saving Money And Time

TIP! Before you call someone to help you fix your system, be sure to know what sort of system you have in place. Look for the model and brand number.

You might think it’s nearly impossible to learn anything about HVAC. But this is not necessarily the way it has to be, if you take the time to peruse this article. Excellent advice is provided here.

TIP! Inspect the temps in your home before you call a service to help you with any HVAC issues you’re having. Jot down the rooms that are hot and the ones that are cold.

Understand what you want before talking to a contractor. You can’t get a decent estimate over a telephone, so disregard those numbers and wait until they view your system. They need to come look at the unit. Learn this information to start with.

TIP! To make sure your condenser fan works properly, keep the fan blades and the coils clean. Make sure your power is off before doing more than cleaning, such as working on the unit.

Clean the coils on the condenser fan from time to time. Start by turning off the power to avoid having anything move when you work on it. Then remove the grill, remove the blades and clean it from top to bottom gently.

Grass Clippings

TIP! Put outdoor condensers in the shade. If your air conditioner is able to constantly suck in cool air, it won’t have to work overtime to cool your space, which can in turn save you money on your electricity bills.

Don’t let grass clippings pile up against your outdoor condenser. Aim the grass clippings in the other direction. This also applies to leaf blowing and any other yard work that results in debris.

TIP! Install a programmable thermostat to save energy costs. You have greater control over the temperature settings with these.

The operation of your HVAC system can be in danger when the tree leaves begin to fall. Make sure you clean out your fan grill often once nearby trees start shedding their leaves. Your fan needs an unobstructed way to get air inside, and the more blocked up it becomes, the more headaches will develop for you with the system.

TIP! To help lower cooling costs when not at home, make sure the air conditioner is turned off. The house will only heat up to a certain point.

If there are oil ports on your fan condenser, lubricate it annually. These are usually covered with rubber or metal caps. Pick out a SAE 20 type of oil because it has no detergent, is lightweight, and you should put around 10 drops in the ports but make it to where they don’t get too full.

TIP! Do your homework on a number of HVAC companies before selecting the one that has the best reputation and service record. You may also want to check with the BBB for information.

This article has given you the knowledge necessary to get into HVAC. By using this advice, things will go your way. You can save a lot of money if you do so.
