Great HVAC Ideas From People Who Know All About It

TIP! Know what type of system you currently have before calling someone to fix it. Know the brand name and model number.

If you’re in the market for an HVAC system, the available options may be overwhelming. You may not know which system will work best for you. How big do you need? Which features? There are so many systems out there, you may be confused by what is available. Use these tips to find the system that will suit your needs.

TIP! Your HVAC unit may suffer when trees start to lose their leaves. Frequently clean the fan grill when trees are shedding leaves.

What system do you have? You need this information to tell your contractor. Know the model and brand and find it’s maintenance history, if possible. This will facilitate the process when your contractor asks for this information.

TIP! If there are oil ports on your fan condenser, lubricate it annually. You can find these ports covered with rubber or metal caps.

Clean your condenser’s fan blades and coils come spring. Always turn the unit off before you do anything to it, including leaning. Remove leaves and debris from the outdoor unit.

TIP! Your HVAC system should be checked a few times a year. It’s best to have it checked before you turn it on for the summer and again for the winter.

The coils and blades on the fans should be cleaned once a year. Shut the power off before you do anything. Then you need to get the grill popped off and get the blades out so you can clean them and your unit gently.

TIP! If you are a home owner, replace whatever single pane windows you have with more efficient double-paned versions. Double pane windows can minimize the use of your air conditioner in hot weather since they keep the indoor air cooler.

If the fan on your condenser includes oil ports, they must be lubricated annually. Such ports tend to have coverings made of rubber or metal. Look for an oil that is lightweight and then put about 10 drops inside the port. You don’t want to put in too much.

Look for shade when placing a compressor outdoors. When your unit takes in cool air, it takes less energy to tool the air, thus boosting efficiency.

TIP! If you are going to be gone during the day or on vacation, turn the temperature up on your air conditioning unit. When you turn the air conditioner off, the house may heat up a little but only a certain amount.

Update the windows in your home to double-paned if you own it. Double pane windows will help keep your home cooler in the summer. When it is cold in the winter months, these same windows will keep the warm air inside as well.

TIP! Do not let your house get dangerously hot. Air conditioners cannot sufficiently cool down unreasonably high temps.

Sometimes, you may be confused when shopping for an HVAC system. Now this should be a lot easier on you, however, because you have great advice in hand. Take time to review the tips and use them to find a unit that will make your home enjoyable and comfortable all year.
