HVAC Advice From The Experts In The Field

TIP! Make a circuit around your home before calling for help with your HVAC. Note which rooms are hot and which are cold.

Most homeowners want an HVAC system that works well. If they buy a low quality one or have one that breaks, it can be very frustrating. In addition to being costly for repairs, they also prevent you from feeling comfortable in your home. Follow these helpful tips on dealing with your HVAC system.

TIP! To make sure your condenser fan works properly, keep the fan blades and the coils clean. Except when cleaning the outside, turn the unit off when performing any type of maintenance.

Before calling for help, know the system you have. It is important to understand what model it is and which brand it is. Also, if it has been serviced before, you should have that information handy. This will ensure that you can give your new contractor all the information they need.

TIP! When selecting the spot to put the outdoor compressor for your unit, choose somewhere that gets plenty of shade. When your unit takes in cool air, it takes less energy to tool the air, thus boosting efficiency.

It is important to have some knowledge of your present system and needs before calling a contractor. You might not be able to get a price quote unless you let the contractor see your current system first. It’s even harder if you’re not able to explain what you’ve done. So, figure out this information before anything else.

TIP! In order to boost efficiency, place new outdoor units or move your current unit to a place which resides in the shade. It will reduce the temperature of the air going into the unit, meaning that it will not have to work as hard to cool it.

Clean the fan blades and coils prior to summertime. Except when you do superficial cleaning, you need to always make sure the power is off on the unit. Additionally, remove leaves and any other debris from the outside condenser unit.

TIP! When it gets cold outside, the outdoor condenser unit should be turned off. Avoid damaging the unit by turning it off when the outdoor temperature drops below 60 degrees.

If you have outside condenser units, make sure to regularly clean the debris that builds up. Particularly after bad weather, you should inspect your unit. It will damage the system by overheating.

TIP! Installing double paned windows can save a lot of money over single panes, so upgrade if you are able. Having double pane windows allows your air conditioning unit to be run much less during the summer, because the cool air is kept inside the home.

When you are cutting the grass, be sure not to cover your outdoor units with clippings. Aim the grass clippings in the other direction. This is the same if you are using a leaf blower.

TIP! Equipping your home with a programmable thermostat can be an excellent way to cut utility costs. 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.

A working HVAC system contributes greatly to the comfort of your home. Many homeowners choose to neglect these units until it is too late and they begin malfunctioning, which can lead to expensive repairs or even an entire replacement! Put these tips to good use and avoid this from happening.
