Good Solid Advice About Hvac That Anyone Can Use

TIP! If you’ve been having trouble with an HVAC system, look around your home before calling in people to help. Make a list of the temperatures in each room and whether they are hot or cold.

An HVAC system is something that many people pick to have inside their home. A good HVAC unit keeps temperatures in the home at comfortable levels. It is a machine so it does need regular maintenance. Keep reading for some useful HVAC tips.

TIP! The coils and blades on the fans should be cleaned once a year. Turn the power off so nothing moves.

If your HVAC is giving you problems, tour your home before calling a technician. Note which rooms are hot and which are cold. This can help contractors quickly figure out the issue and how to fix it easily and quickly.

TIP! Make sure that you do not cover your outdoor components with grass clippings when you are trimming the grass. Have the grass shoot in the opposite direction.

What do you need done? Know this before calling a contractor. If you can’t describe the problem, you may not get an accurate quote. It can be harder if you don’t know what’s wrong. Having this information handy will make the process much smoother.

TIP! If the fan condenser on your unit has ports for oil, make sure you lubricate it once a year. You can easily find the ports as they have a rubber or metal cap.

Clean the debris from outside units often. Debris quickly gathers here, even more so if there is a storm. This can cause major issues with your system. It can get overheated, which will cause problems with the whole system.

TIP! For maximum efficiency, place outdoor units in a shady spot. As it brings in cool air to cool, you will save a lot of money.

As the trees around your home lose leaves, it can cause your HVAC unit trouble. When you see nearby trees shedding their leaves, clean the fan grill on your unit constantly. When blockages restrict the flow of air to the fan, you could end up with serious issues on your hands.

TIP! When the weather cools down, turn your outdoor condenser off. This should be done when the temperature drops below 60ºF to avoid damage.

Get your HVAC unit serviced two times per year. The fall and spring are the optimal times for this maintenance. A quick check is worth it to avoid problems down the road.

TIP! If you can, use double-paned windows instead of single-paned ones. 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.

There are plenty of tips that will help when you find yourself dealing with a contractor. These tips are found in the article above, of course, but there are others as well. Get it installed properly, fix it when necessary and maintain it over time. Use the information from this article to guide you when choosing a heat pump or having maintenance work completed on your HVAC.
