All The Help You Need To Maximize HVAC Success

TIP! Check out the system that you have before you call a professional. Write down the make, model, and any maintenance history.

Do you need an HVAC system? If so, you may be feeling overwhelmed by everything out there. How do you figure out what system is right for your home. What size will your new HVAC system need to be to cool the room efficiently? Which features are the best? With new items constantly coming to market, shopping for one can be frustrating. If you are feeling overwhelmed by it all, read the info below; it will help you out.

TIP! Before you ever begin looking for an HVAC contractor, first consider the entire job that you’ll need completed. A contractor will be hard pressed to provide you with an over-the-phone estimate if unfamiliar with your system.

What system do you have? You need this information to tell your contractor. Look for the model and brand number. This information will be helpful to any contractor you hire to repair it.

TIP! HVAC units may suffer when leaves are falling off the trees. Make sure the fan’s grill is cleaned often during the fall.

Check the whole house before you call for help. Notice the temperature in each room. Are some cooler or hotter than others? This can help the contractor determine the problem areas quickly and fix the problem easily.

TIP! A shady spot is always a good choice for the placement of your outdoor compressor. If your unit is sucking in cooler air, it will have less work to do to cool that air as it sends it inside which boosts efficiency.

Clean the coils of your condenser fan each month. Turn off the power if you are going to work on your HVAC system. Clean off any leaves or debris from your external condenser unit.

TIP! Condenser units for the outdoors should be shut off when it starts to get cold outside. If the outside temp is under 60 degrees, turn the unit off to prevent damage.

Don’t let grass clippings pile up against your outdoor condenser. Have the grass shoot in the opposite direction. Be just as mindful when you blow leaves to not blow them toward your HVAC equipment.

TIP! Installing a programmable digital thermostat can help save money. 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.

As the trees around your home lose leaves, it can cause your HVAC unit trouble. When the leaves fall from nearby trees, clean the grill of your fan often. Your fan needs an unobstructed way to get air inside, and the more blocked up it becomes, the more headaches will develop for you with the system.

TIP! To cut energy costs, you should service your cooling and heating system once a year at least. This visit will include a motor inspection and checking the freon.

You can sometimes get overwhelmed when picking out a good HVAC system. You should note the decision becoming a little easier to make now that some options have been removed from the table. Be sure to keep these tips in mind when making your selection to keep your home comfortable year round.
