Helping You Better Understand Hvac With These Simple To Follow Tips

The information involved may appear complex on first glance. Still, you can learn and become more comfortable with it. It will help you to be more prepared.

TIP! In order to keep your outside condenser fan running efficiently, make sure the coils and the fan blades are cleaned before the cooling season begins. Be safe and turn off the power supply before working on your HVAC unit.

Before calling anyone to repair your system, know what system you have. Learn the brand, model, and if you have it, the maintenance history. This will let you know that you’re able to give the contractor the information that can help them.

TIP! Clean any debris that accumulates on an external condenser unit. After a wind or rain storm things may pile up, causing problems with your HVAC system.

If you have some problems with the HVAC system, check out your home before calling a contractor. Figure out which rooms are hot and cold. That way, the contractor will have an easier time diagnosing the problem and repairing it fast.

TIP! Each spring, clean the fan blades and coils on your condenser. Turn the power off so nothing moves.

Before you choose an HVAC contractor, have an idea in your mind of what needs to be done. A contractor will be hard pressed to provide you with an over-the-phone estimate if unfamiliar with your system. Getting an estimate will be even more difficult if you cannot adequately describe the problem. Learn this information to start with.

Outside Condenser

TIP! Turn off any outdoor condensers you have when the weather gets cold. If temps go below 60 you run the risk of damaging a unit that remains on.

Keep outside condenser fans running smoothly by cleaning fan blades and coils before the summer begins. Except when you do superficial cleaning, you need to always make sure the power is off on the unit. Additionally, it’s important to clear out leaves and other debris from the outside condenser unit.

TIP! Install a programmable thermostat to save energy costs. A thermostat that’s programmable is going to save you around ten percent on the heating and cooling costs you have to pay when you turn it back about fifteen percent for a part of the day.

Each spring, clean the fan blades and coils on your condenser. First, make sure the power is off to ensure nothing moves while you are working. Secondly, pop the grill off, take the blades off and clean them as well as the actual unit.

TIP! Try to have your HVAC system looked at every year, because regular maintenance will go a long way in energy efficiency. The motor should be checked, the parts oiled and the freon levels inspected.

When selecting the spot to put the outdoor compressor for your unit, choose somewhere that gets plenty of shade. If you have a unit taking in air that’s cooler, it won’t have to work so hard to cool air that it sends to your home.

TIP! Your home should never reach a dangerous temperature. Air conditioners really can only cool a home down about 20 degrees Fahrenheit within a reasonable amount of time.

If you have an interest in HVAC, the previous information should not have been terribly difficult for you to understand. If you use these tips, things will go smoothly. Use these tips wisely, and you can’t go wrong.
