Don’t Go On Without Reading This Article About HVAC

Without a decent HVAC system, any home can become a very uncomfortable home to be inside. Many times people have high costs to fix a faulty system, but they could avoid the expense if they knew proper maintenance procedures. The following article will help you maximize your purchase.

TIP! If your HVAC system is acting up, take a tour of the house prior to calling a professional. Pay attention to which areas of the house are warm and which ones are cool.

Know what type of system you currently have before calling someone to fix it. It is important to understand what model it is and which brand it is. Also, if it has been serviced before, you should have that information handy. The contractor will likely need all of this information.

TIP! Before selecting a HVAC repairman, know what you need done. It is going to be hard to get a price estimate on the phone if the current system isn’t something they’ve seen.

If you have some problems with the HVAC system, check out your home before calling a contractor. Notice the temperature in each room. Are some cooler or hotter than others? If you do this, it will be a great help to the future contractor, who will now be able to quickly locate the problem issue.

TIP! If your condenser units are outisde, make sure any debris is cleaned from them regularly. Debris can pile up after a storm, bringing potential damage with it.

What do you need done? Know this before calling a contractor. This will make the quote process much easier. They also won’t be able to offer you a quote if they don’t have a detailed idea of what you want done. It’s a good idea to learn this information in advance.

TIP! Once it grows cold outside, turn off your outside condenser unit. If temps go below 60 you run the risk of damaging a unit that remains on.

Each spring it’s time to clean the inside of your condenser unit, including the fan and the sensitive coil. 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! Replace any single-paned windows with double-paned versions. Windows that are double pane keep the cool air in and can greatly reduce the amount of time your air conditioner will need to run.

When you mow your lawn, take care that you don’t get grass clippings all over your outdoor unit. Direct the clippings away from the equipment. This also applies to blowing leaves or moving debris. Just be careful with that exterior HVAC unit.

TIP! You can keep energy costs in your home lower by choosing to have professional maintenance done on your HVAC unit. The motor should be checked, the parts oiled and the freon levels inspected.
