Use This Great Tips About Hvac To Help You Better Understand

TIP! Your outside condenser fan can be helped to run better by you cleaning the fan blades and coils prior to summer starting up. Except when you do superficial cleaning, you need to always make sure the power is off on the unit.

Ignoring your HVAC system is not the wisest thing to do, and usually it is only paid attention to when it breaks down. Once you reach this point, maintenance is forgotten and expensive repairs become mandatory. Finding a new person to repair your system or put in a new system can be a challenge. This article can substitute for experience and help you choose the right company.

TIP! Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. First, the power should be turned off so things don’t move as you work.

Before calling for help, know the system you have. Write down what brand your system is along with the model number and, if they’re available, maintenance records. This will let you know that you’re able to give the contractor the information that can help them.

TIP! Make sure clippings don’t get on your outdoor units when your mowing your lawn. Direct the grass clippings in a direction away from the HVAC unit.

Before choosing an HVAC contractor, think of what you wish to have done. A contractor will be hard pressed to provide you with an over-the-phone estimate if unfamiliar with your system. If you are unable to explain the work that needs to be taken care of, the conversation will be even less fruitful. Know this stuff ahead of time.

TIP! As you notice the tress begin to lose their leaves, keep an eye on your outdoor condenser unit. Whenever leaves are falling, consistently clean the fan grill.

Each spring it’s time to clean the inside of your condenser unit, including the fan and the sensitive coil. Don’t forget to disconnect the power first. Pull out each of the blades and clean them one by one.

TIP! When selecting a location for an outdoor compressor, opt for a shady area, if possible. The cooler the air that the unit is able to access, the less work it has to perform.

Don’t let your outdoor HVAC units get smothered with clippings anytime you mow the yard. Aim the grass clippings in the other direction. The same goes for blowing leaves, so always be careful if you are moving debris near your HVAC devices.

TIP! A good way to save money with your air conditioning is by installing a programmable thermostat. 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.

If the condenser fan has oil parts, then you need to lubricate it at least once per year. The port usually has either a rubber or metal cap on top of it. Buy an SAE 20 product that is lightweight, and then put no more than ten drops into the ports.

TIP! Regular maintenance of your unit should be performed annually. During the visit, the contractor will oil parts, inspect the motor and the freon levels.

Now you should be better educated when it comes to HVAC systems. You now know where to look, what you are looking for, and what they should be doing when you hire them. Keep these suggestions in mind in your search for the right system.
