All The HVAC Advice You Need To Know To Save Money

TIP! When you start making calls to get someone to help with your HVAC system, it’s a good idea to know what system you have before that phone call. Write down the make, model, and any maintenance history.

Having a well running HVAC will help make your home comfortable. A bad HVAC system is costly in terms of energy use and repair, and it can make your home uncomfortable to live in. Follow these tips to put yourself in the best position.

TIP! What do you need done? Know this before calling a contractor. A contractor cannot give an accurate estimate without looking at your system.

When you start making calls to get someone to help with your HVAC system, it’s a good idea to know what system you have before that phone call. Know the brand name and model number. It is also helpful to have the maintenance history. This will give contractor’s a better idea of what to expect before they show up, which will help things go more smoothly on arrival.

TIP! Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. Before you do so, shut off the power to ensure that none of the parts will move while you work on it.

Look for shade when placing a compressor outdoors. If you have a unit taking in air that’s cooler, it won’t have to work so hard to cool air that it sends to your home.

Be sure to place your outdoor unit in a shady spot to maximize efficiency. As it brings in cool air to cool, you will save a lot of money.

TIP! Turn off your outdoor condenser when it becomes cold out. If temps go below 60 you run the risk of damaging a unit that remains on.

Turn off your outdoor condenser when it’s getting cold. This means that you should turn it off to prevent damage if the weather falls under 60 degrees Farenheit. This helps the system last much longer and will have to be repaired less often.

Pane Windows

TIP! Try to have your HVAC system looked at every year, because regular maintenance will go a long way in energy efficiency. The motor should be checked, the parts oiled and the freon levels inspected.

It is always a good idea to swap out single pane windows for double pane ones. During the summer, the use of double-pane windows will help keep the cool air locked inside of the home. It also facilitates heat retention in winter.

TIP! If you are going to be gone during the day or on vacation, turn the temperature up on your air conditioning unit. Even though the house will get hotter, it won’t get too bad if the unit is off.

Consider getting a programmable thermostat for your AC. Such thermostats help you save around ten percent when it comes to energy costs. Some can even be controlled from a computer.

TIP! To help you pick a good HVAC contractor, be sure to research a number of different companies. A good start would be the BBB to see if there are any complaints, then search online for review sites where you can see what actual customers had to say about their experience.

The HVAC system can determine your overall comfort level. If it isn’t, you will often be too hot or too cold in your living space. Use this information to keep your system running well all year long.
