Top HVAC Secrets For Saving Money And Time

TIP! Prior to putting in a service call on your HVAC, be able to identify it. Know what the manufacturer’s name is, which particular model you have and what’s gone on with the unit in the past.

When your HVAC system works right, it is a great thing to have. Knowing the interior of the home is at optimal temperature during the freezing winter and scorching summer heat leaves many with a sense of satisfaction. However, this can become a nightmare quickly if the HVAC system in your home fails. Therefore, learning HVAC maintenance is vital.

Outside Condenser

TIP! Keeping the outside condenser clean of debris and leaves will improve the system’s efficiency. Except when you do superficial cleaning, you need to always make sure the power is off on the unit.

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. Make sure your power is off before doing more than cleaning, such as working on the unit. The outside condenser unit should be kept free of leaves and other debris.

TIP! Be sure to regularly clean debris from external condenser units. The dirt could pile up and harm your system.

Clean your condenser’s fan blades and coil in the spring. First, the power should be turned off so things don’t move as you work. Next, pop the grill off, put the blades out and start to gently clean them along with the unit.

TIP! When you are cutting the grass, be sure not to cover your outdoor units with clippings. Make sure you shoot the clippings in the other direction from the unit.

If trees are losing leaves around your home, this can impact your HVAC unit. During this time of year, check and clear off the fan grill on your unit on a regular basis. The fan needs unobstructed air flow, and if debris is blocking this air flow, then your system could suffer.

TIP! As the leaves are falling off the trees, your HVAC system can really take a hit. Clean outdoor units often to remove leaves.

Lubricate your condenser yearly if it has oil ports. A rubber or metal cap is typically placed over such ports. Get an oil that is SAE 20 and put about 10 drops into each port, but don’t overfill it.

TIP! If you have oil ports as part of the fan condenser, annual lubrication is key. Such ports tend to have coverings made of rubber or metal.

Try to choose a shady place to locate the outdoor compressor device. If your unit is sucking in cooler air, it will have less work to do to cool that air as it sends it inside which boosts efficiency.

TIP! Condenser units for the outdoors should be shut off when it starts to get cold outside. To prevent damage, turn off your unit if the outside temperature is less than 60 degrees.

After reading the above article, you now see the importance to keeping your HVAC in proper working condition. If you don’t take care of it, it will fail. The excellent tips provided above will help you to keep your HVAC system in tip top shape.
