Top Secrets To Achieving Amazing HVAC Success

TIP! Before you start calling to find someone to fix your unit, make sure you know the type of system that is installed. Write down the make, model, and any maintenance history.

You may feel like it’s not possible to learn too much about HVAC. But, if you do not mind spending some time studying, that need not be so. The advice here is truly priceless.

TIP! Before choosing an HVAC contractor, think of what you wish to have done. You might not be able to get a price quote unless you let the contractor see your current system first.

Get all of the details regarding a broken system before calling for repair. Write down the make, model, and any maintenance history. This helps make sure the contractor has the information they will need.

TIP! When selecting the spot to put the outdoor compressor for your unit, choose somewhere that gets plenty of shade. When your unit takes in cool air, it takes less energy to tool the air, thus boosting efficiency.

Prior to choosing an HVAC customer, try to have an idea of what you want done. Discussing the problem is simplified if you understand what has happened with the unit. It will be way more hard if you can’t figure out what they need to do. Thus, it is worthwhile to have this knowledge ahead of time.

TIP! Installing double paned windows can save a lot of money over single panes, so upgrade if you are able. Double pane windows can help minimize how much you use your air conditioner in the summer, because they keep cool air inside the home.

Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. For safety, always turn the power off first. Next, pop off the grill, pull out the blades and start cleaning them and the unit itself off gently.

TIP! A programmable thermostat is a simple way to help save money on air conditioning costs. A thermostat that’s programmable is going to save you around ten percent on the heating and cooling costs you have to pay when you turn it back about fifteen percent for a part of the day.

A big mistake that people make is cutting the grass next to the outdoor condenser unit and allowing all of the clippings to blow inside the fan and coil. Get the grass shot away from your unit. Do the same when blowing snow or leaves.

TIP! Get your HVAC unit serviced yearly. This visit will include a motor inspection and checking the freon.

If the condenser fan has oil parts, then you need to lubricate it at least once per year. You can find these ports covered with rubber or metal caps. Choose a SAE 20 oil whch is lightweight and non-detergent and place 10 drops or less into each port, ensuring it doesn’t overfill.

TIP! Some air conditioners can ice up. You may even mistake the frozen drains as an issue for a plumber.

It’s a good idea to put your outdoor compressor in a shady area. When your unit takes in cool air, it takes less energy to tool the air, thus boosting efficiency.

TIP! Research what size air conditioner you should purchase for the size of your home by using online calculators they have for this purpose. If you purchase something that is too big, it won’t be cost effective to run.

As long as you have the motivation, you can learn about your HVAC system. If you use these tips, things will go smoothly. You will save on your electric bill by doing so.
