A Basic Guide To All Your HVAC Questions And Needs

TIP! What system do you have? You need this information to tell your contractor. Look for the model and brand number.

When you wish to learn about HVACs, try using some helpful tips. This article will lead you along the way so you can become a master at this. Refer back to the article as needed to refresh your memory.

TIP! Tour your home before calling a contractor. Jot down the rooms that are hot and the ones that are cold.

Know the name and type of your HVAC system before looking for a repair person. Look for the maintenance history and brand and model. That way you can provide the contractor with all the necessary information.

TIP! Clean your condenser’s fan blades and coils come spring. Except when you do superficial cleaning, you need to always make sure the power is off on the unit.

Before contacting a repair service, do a short tour of the entire home. Jot down the rooms that are hot and the ones that are cold. This information will help the contractor determine where the problem is and how to fix it.

TIP! Save energy use and money by turning off the air conditioner if there is nobody home. You don’t need to keep the house cool if you aren’t there.

Before you choose someone to do HVAC work, figure out what they need to do for you. A contractor cannot give an accurate estimate without looking at your system. It will be more difficult for him to assist you over the phone without the information readily available. Know this stuff ahead of time.

TIP! Don’t let your home get way too hot to where it’s dangerous. AC units will only cool a house down 20 degrees.

To make sure your condenser fan works properly, keep the fan blades and the coils clean. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit. Remove leaves and debris from the outdoor unit.

TIP! Make certain you properly investigate any company prior to hiring them. Check with the BBB (Better Business Bureau), and look them up on review sites online to see what previous customers have to say about their experience.

Clean the condenser on your debris 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! There are plenty of online tools, such as sizing calculators, which can help you find the best unit to cool your home. Buying a unit which is too big reduces efficiency.

Clean the fan blades and coils in your condenser each spring. First, make sure the power is off to ensure nothing moves while you are working. Next, remove the grill, take the blades and clean them gently, then clean the actual unit.

TIP! An online search will give you further information about any contractor you are considering. There are a lot of sites these days that let customers talk about their experiences with contractors.

Armed with the right information, you can understand HVAC. You just have to apply yourself to learning a bit about the subject. Keep your home running efficiently by taking care of your HVAC system.
