HVAC Advice From The Experts In The Field

TIP! Before calling someone to repair your system, make sure you know what kind of HVAC system you actually have. It is important to understand what model it is and which brand it is.

Not everyone is familiar with HVAC service and contracting. This can be problematic when an unexpected emergency occurs. Luckily, the following tips can assist homeowners in finding great HVAC contractors.

TIP! Go through your home before you call HVAC professional. Determine which rooms feel cold and which feel hot.

Inspect the temps in your home before you call a service to help you with any HVAC issues you’re having. Figure out which rooms are hot and cold. This will help your contractor quickly determine where the issue lies and how to get it fixed quickly and easily.

TIP! Before choosing an HVAC contractor, think of what you wish to have done. It will be hard for a contractor to give you a price estimate over the phone if they have not seen your current system.

If you have outside condenser units, make sure to regularly clean the debris that builds up. After a wind or rain storm things may pile up, causing problems with your system. It can get overheated, which will cause problems with the whole system.

TIP! Clean your condenser’s fan blades and coils come spring. Make sure your power is off before doing more than cleaning, such as working on the unit.

You should clean your condenser fan’s blades and coils every spring. First, the power should be turned off so things don’t move as you work. Pull out each of the blades and clean them one by one.

TIP! Do not allow grass clippings to cover the outdoor unit of your HVAC system. When you work with your lawn mower, make sure it spits the grass to the side opposite of your unit.

A big mistake that people make is cutting the grass next to the outdoor condenser unit and allowing all of the clippings to blow inside the fan and coil. Have the grass shoot in the opposite direction. This also applies to leaf blowing and any other yard work that results in debris.

Find a place that is shaded for your compressor. The cooler the air which goes in, the less work the unit will have to do.

TIP! Have the HVAC system checked twice a year at the least. The best time of year to have the system checked is right before the weather begins to change.

To save money and be more comfortable in your home, install double-paned windows instead of single pane. Double pane windows can help minimize how much you use your air conditioner in the summer, because they keep cool air inside the home. Likewise, heat is better retained during the winter.

TIP! If you own your own home or have permission from your landlord, replace your single pane windows with double paned versions. In warmer months, these windows will help to maintain the cooler inside temperature.

Having an HVAC break is something nobody wants to have happen. But, with a little of research the problem may not be as big as you expect. These tips will help you get the job done right.
