Top HVAC Secrets For Saving Money And Time

TIP! Before contacting a repair service, do a short tour of the entire home. Note which of your rooms are hot and which are cold.

You may not even think about your HVAC system until it doesn’t work. Once it breaks, though, it immediately becomes critical. It can be hard to get a repairman to fix your system. The tips here will ensure you have no issues with the process.

TIP! Before selecting a HVAC repairman, know what you need done. It is going to be hard to get a price estimate on the phone if the current system isn’t something they’ve seen.

Be aware of the type of system that is installed in your home prior to calling a contractor to fix it. Take a look at the system or the owner’s manual to find the name and model number. In this way, you can be sure your repair person has all vital information.

TIP! Clean the condenser on your debris regularly. Leaves, twigs and other troublesome objects can accumulate, particularly after very windy weather, and this will wreak havoc on your system.

Cleaning the blades and coils will help the system run better. Always shut off all power to your unit for any work beyond superficial cleaning. Clean off any leaves or debris from your external condenser unit.

TIP! Check to determine if the fan condenser on your HVAC system is equipped with oil ports, and if it is, be sure to lubricate every year. You can easily find the ports as they have a rubber or metal cap.

If your condenser units are outisde, make sure any debris is cleaned from them regularly. After a wind or rain storm things may pile up, causing problems with your HVAC system. Left unchecked, your unit is more likely to break down.

TIP! When selecting the spot to put the outdoor compressor for your unit, choose somewhere that gets plenty of shade. The cooler air entering the unit will require less work to get to the proper temperature.

Keep your outdoor units free of debris when you are mowing the lawn. Turn your lawnmower in the opposite direction. This is the same if you are using a leaf blower.

TIP! Your HVAC system should be checked a few times a year. Generally, you want it done in the fall and the spring.

Lubricate your fan condenser if it has oil ports. The port usually has either a rubber or metal cap on top of it. Your oil should be an SAE 20. This particular oil is very lightweight and it only requires about 10 drops per port.

TIP! If you are a home owner, replace whatever single pane windows you have with more efficient double-paned versions. Double pane windows help minimize your air conditioning use in the summer by keeping the cooler air inside your home.

When you are choosing a location for the outdoor compressor unit, it’s preferable to use a shaded area. If the unit is taking in cooler air, the efficiency will be boosted since it will not need to work as hard.

Hvac Systems

TIP! If you want your energy costs to go down, have the heating an cooling system you own serviced every year at least. When they come out for a service visit, expect inspections of freon levels and the motor, and they will oil all the moving parts.

From reading the above article, you should now be more comfortable in your knowledge about HVAC systems. If you are in need of repair, you know how to find it. Remember the tips here to help you with HVAC systems.
