You Can Handle All Your HVAC Woes Easily With The Help Of This Article

Many people think dealing with the HVAC is tough work. You shouldn’t let this hold you back, though. Use these thoughts to help increase your understanding.

TIP! Every spring you should clean the coils and fan blades on your condenser fan. Before you begin cleaning the unit, make sure that it is unplugged.

Know what type of system you currently have before calling someone to fix it. Know the model and brand and find it’s maintenance history, if possible. This makes sure your contractor will be sufficiently prepared.

TIP! Don’t get grass clippings on your outside unit. Turn your lawnmower in the opposite direction.

Before an HVAC expert comes to your home to do any repair work, walk around the home and check out the temps in every room. Make note of which rooms are cold and which are hot. The contractor can probably figure out and fix the problem easier.

TIP! Leaves falling from trees can wreak havoc with your HVAC unit. Whenever leaves are falling, consistently clean the fan grill.

Clean your fan and coils when the weather begins to warm. Shut off power before working or cleaning your system. The outside condenser unit should be kept free of leaves and other debris.

TIP! You need to lubricate parts of your fan condenser. These ports are typically covered with caps made of metal or rubber.

If your condenser units are outisde, make sure any debris is cleaned from them regularly. Leaves, twigs and other troublesome objects can accumulate, particularly after very windy weather, and this will wreak havoc on your system. It may begin to overheat, causing massive damage.

TIP! Try to choose a shady place to locate the outdoor compressor device. The unit will operate more efficiently to cool your home if the intake air is cooler to begin with.

During the fall, leaves can gather around your HVAC. Frequently clean the fan grill when trees are shedding leaves. An obstruction, such as a leaf, prevents the maximum amount of cool air from entering the system.

TIP! Your system should be checked twice a year. This should be checked often for debris and malfunctions.

If you can, use double-paned windows instead of single-paned ones. To keep your home cool, investing in double pane windows is a must. Likewise, in the winter more hot air stays inside during the cold season.

TIP! Replace single pane windows by installing double pane, if possible. In warmer months, these windows will help to maintain the cooler inside temperature.

One way to save some money with A/C is by having a programmable thermostat installed. If you adjust it to keep the house a little warmer or a little cooler during the time you are sleeping, you may see your energy bill go down by as much as ten percent. Additionally, some models of programmable thermostats actually allow you to control them remotely from your office computer or cell phone.

TIP! Do not allow your house to get extremely hot. It is only possible for an air conditioner to lower the temperature in a home by 20 degrees F in a short time.

Your HVAC system isn’t as complicated as it first appears. Without going over the tips, it is very tricky to figure out an HVAC system on your own. Get going and reap the benefits.
