Great Tips About Hvac That Anyone Can Use

Are you searching for information about HVAC systems because you have had problems in the past? Maybe you would just like solid tips on how to maintain the one you have? Either way, the following article was written as a guide to help anyone keep their HVAC system running the right way, so continue below.

If you must hire someone to help you out with your HVAC system, be sure to learn about all of the requirements your state has legislated regarding licencing and insurance. You need to be able to ask anyone you plan to hire if they meet these requirements before you hire them.

Make sure the equipment you are buying is ENERGY STAR compliant. It may seem a small thing, but it isn’t. Products that are ENERGY STAR compliant can save you a lot of money in energy costs over the year. It can be over $100 easily, sometimes a lot more.

Regularly remove debris from outside condenser units. You never know when things can pile up, especially after a windy or rainy storm, and that can throw a wrench in your system. Overheating may be the result if you don’t.

How many times per year should i check my HVAC

Your HVAC system should be checked a few times a year. The best time of year to have the system checked is right before the weather begins to change. Even though it may seem as nothing is wrong with the unit, a simple inspection can prove otherwise. When you are no longer using your outdoor air conditioning unit, be sure to protect it with a tight cover. This will keep it free of debris, frost and snow so that you’ll have a working unit when the spring comes and you are ready to uncover it and use it again. If you currently have a manual thermostat, consider installing a programmable one. You can set your system for different temperatures depending on time of day and if anyone is home. Also, you can set upper and lower temperature settings to allow for a comfortable range of temperatures so that heating and cooling don’t kick in when not needed. A good way to save money with your air conditioning is by installing a programmable thermostat. These convenient thermostats may shave ten percent or more off of your bills, because they significantly cut energy use when you’re not around. There are also some programmable thermostats that can be controlled with a computer or other web-connected advice.

Air Conditioner Maintenance Checklist

1.) Air Filter Replacement/Cleaning

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, clogged air filters lead to anywhere from a 5 to 10% drop of efficiency. That is why, this simple step is a good habit to develop. Simply remove the old filter and replace it with a new one. That quick fix is the simplest, and most cost effective, routine heating and cooling repair.

2.) Wash and Clean your Unit

Usually housed outside, it is unlikely that your system has managed to avoid the build up of grass, leaves, dirt, etc. on the outside of your system. That build up will lead to lower system capacity, the effects of which you will see on your electric bill. Clean the unit by shutting off the power and using a hose to gently wash out the dirt and grime.

3.) Clean the Fan

When a fan malfunctions, it is usually due to loose or dirty blades. To clean these blades, open the cabinet and locate the fan. Now, check the motor shaft to see if it is loose. If it is, tighten the screw with a screwdriver (or Allen wrench). If the problem is in motor or the compressor, call Pro Team Plumbing and we will come take a look.
