How To Make HVAC Equipment Purchases Easier

TIP! Before calling someone to repair your system, make sure you know what kind of HVAC system you actually have. Know the model and brand and find it’s maintenance history, if possible.

HVAC contracting and service is not an area with which everyone is intimately familiar. When a problem arises, though, you must know what to do. However, these suggestions will help you to make the best choices regarding your system.

TIP! If your HVAC system is acting up, take a tour of the house prior to calling a professional. Jot down the rooms that are hot and the ones that are cold.

Before calling for help, know the system you have. You need to know who manufactured the product and the item number. Also, get the maintenance records from your files if you have them. This helps make sure the contractor has the information they will need.

TIP! Clean the fan blades and coils prior to summertime. Shut off power before working or cleaning your system.

Clean the coils of your condenser fan each month. Except when cleaning the outside, turn the unit off when performing any type of maintenance. The outside condenser unit should be kept free of leaves and other debris.

TIP! When you are cutting the grass, be sure not to cover your outdoor units with clippings. Get the grass shot away from your unit.

If your unit is outdoors, clean them regularly. Things pile up after storms and damage your system. The whole thing can overheat, causing major problems and possibly an enormous expense for you.

TIP! It is very important that your HVAC system is serviced two times a year. Check into it twice a year before you head into the hot and cold months.

When choosing the area for placing an outdoor compressor device, place it in a shady area. 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! One great way to save some cash when you’re working on keeping a home cool is to install a thermostat that’s programmable. These can save you around 10 percent on your heating and cooling costs by just turning it back 10 percent to 15 percent for around eight hours each day.

It is very important that your HVAC system is serviced two times a year. The ideal thing to do would be to have it checked out in the fall and spring so you’re able to figure out if everything is ready for the cold and hot months. Even if nothing seems wrong, checking it out can help you find and fix potential issues.

TIP! Regular maintenance of your unit should be performed annually. When it’s checked out, the motor will be inspected, moving parts well oiled and the level of freon adjusted if necessary.

When it gets cold outside, the outdoor condenser unit should be turned off. If it’s lower than 60 degrees, the time has come to turn it off. This helps the system last much longer and will have to be repaired less often.

TIP! Avoid allowing your home to ever get exceedingly hot. Air conditioners can only really cool your home down 20 degrees or so within a reasonable time period.

Homeowners fear their HVAC system breaking down. But, by studying in advance, things can go much more smoothly. Use the information in this article to assist you with your HVAC maintenance.
