Great Ideas About Hvac That Anyone Can Use

TIP! Before calling for help, know the system you have. Learn the brand and the model.

Many people simply ignore their HVAC system until it is too late. Once it breaks, though, it immediately becomes critical. Locating a contractor to work on your unit, or to put in a new one, isn’t easy. Simply continue reading to learn more about how to go about doing this.

TIP! Before you choose an HVAC contractor, have an idea in your mind of what needs to be done. They won’t be able to offer you a quote if they haven’t seen your system.

Clean the debris from outside units often. Your HVAC system may run into problems after storms if it is surrounded by debris. It could overheat and cause a disaster with your unit.

TIP! Clean the coils on the condenser fan from time to time. First, turn the power off so nothing moves when you’re working with it.

The coils and blades on the fans should be cleaned once a year. First, turn the power off so nothing moves when you’re working with it. Next, pop the grill off, put the blades out and start to gently clean them along with the unit.

TIP! Some fan condensers may contain oil parts, and if yours does, ensure it is lubricated at least once per year. You will see rubber or metal caps covering the ports.

Fall is a hard time on HVAC units. At least twice a week, you need to clean the grill of your fan. The air needs to be unobstructed into the fan, and any blockages create performance issues for the whole system.

TIP! If you need to decide the best place to put your outdoor compressor unit, consider putting it in a location that is in the shade. When your unit is bringing in cool air, it will not have to work as hard to cool the air as it moves it inside, boosting efficiency.

Be sure to place your outdoor unit in a shady spot to maximize efficiency. As you get your air conditioner to suck in cool air it won’t have to do too much work to cool it which saves you some money.

TIP! One way to save some money with A/C is by having a programmable thermostat installed. In fact, you can save as much as 10 percent on both heating and cooling when you turn your thermostat by by 10-15 percent for at least 8 hours daily.

Have your HVAC serviced at least yearly. The best times to have the system checked is spring and fall, so you are sure everything is running at peak performance before the heating and cooling seasons. It doesn’t matter if your unit seems to be properly working, it is still advisable that you perform maintenance and resolve any potential problems.

TIP! In order to keep energy costs down, make sure heating and cooling systems are services at least once per year. During this service visit, they will inspect the motor of the system, oil the moving parts and check the freon levels in the system.

Now you should be better educated when it comes to HVAC systems. If your current system needs to be replaced or repaired, you’ll know what things to look out for and what things to avoid. Refer back to this article as necessary to make sure that you’re on the right track.
