An Easy-to-understand Guide To All Your HVAC Questions

TIP! When you call an HVAC system for help, you need to be aware of what you need them to do before calling. A contractor will be hard pressed to provide you with an over-the-phone estimate if unfamiliar with your system.

You may not pay much attention to the HVAC system in your home until it stops working. Once that happens, fixing the issue quickly is critical. Finding a professional isn’t easy. The article helps you work your way through this process.

TIP! To make sure your condenser fan works properly, keep the fan blades and the coils clean. Before you clean the unit, be sure to turn off the power.

Before calling for help, know the system you have. Write down the make, model, and any maintenance history. Then, you’ll be ready to tell the contractor what they need to know.

TIP! If your condenser units are outisde, make sure any debris is cleaned from them regularly. You never know when things can pile up, especially after a windy or rainy storm, and that can throw a wrench in your system.

Before you hire an HVAC contractor, have some sort of idea of the work that needs to be done. It’s hard to get an estimate since they haven’t look at your system. If you do not know what you want, the process can become tedious, especially over the phone. Learn this information to start with.

Grass Clippings

TIP! If your fan condenser has oil ports, you must lubricate it once per year. They are usually fitted with a rubber or metal cap.

When you mow your lawn, take care that you don’t get grass clippings all over your outdoor unit. Now so the grass clippings are shot away from your unit. Be just as mindful when you blow leaves to not blow them toward your HVAC equipment.

TIP! Make certain that an outdoor unit is in the shade. The cooler air that the unit can suck in, the less work it will need to do to further cool the air.

If you want things to be more efficient, get new units outside or have your current one moved into the shade. This will help you save on your energy bill.

TIP! When colder weather arrives, switch off all outdoor condenser units. If it’s less than 60 degrees outside, turn the unit off.

If the house is yours or you’re permitted to, replace the windows that are single pane with windows that are double pane. Having double pane windows allows your air conditioning unit to be run much less during the summer, because the cool air is kept inside the home. This same effect also keeps warm air in during the winter months.

TIP! Have a smart thermostat installed. You have greater control over the temperature settings with these.

Now that you know a thing or two about HVAC systems, you should feel comfortable dealing with them. If your current system needs to be replaced or repaired, you’ll know what things to look out for and what things to avoid. Find the correct system by using this advice.
