HVAC Can Be Easy With This Guide

TIP! Before you choose an HVAC contractor, have an idea in your mind of what needs to be done. It’s hard for these contractors to give phone estimates without seeing the current system you have.

When HVAC is something you want to learn a little bit about, there’s nothing better than learning some tips first. This article will provide a gentle introduction and a helping hand on the subject. Spend a fair amount of time, and you will reap the rewards.

TIP! The HVAC unit in your home can become damaged from falling leaves. When the leaves fall from nearby trees, clean the grill of your fan often.

Before calling for help, know the system you have. Get information on the make and model, plus if you have information on the history of maintenance, that will help, too. This will help you give the new contractor the necessary information.

TIP! If you have a fan condenser with oil ports, it needs to be lubricated every year. They are usually fitted with a rubber or metal cap.

If you have some problems with the HVAC system, check out your home before calling a contractor. While you are walking through the house, gauge which rooms are the coolest and which are the warmest. The contractor can probably figure out and fix the problem easier.

TIP! If you want to know where you should put an outdoor compressor, you should place it somewhere where there is a lot of shade. The cooler the air that the unit is able to access, the less work it has to perform.

Before you hire an HVAC contractor, have some sort of idea of the work that needs to be done. This will make the quote process much easier. It’s even harder if you’re not able to explain what you’ve done. Be sure to find this out ahead of time.

TIP! Once it gets cold outside, you should turn off the outdoor condenser unit. If it’s lower than 60 degrees, the time has come to turn it off.

Clean your fan and coils when the weather begins to warm. Always turn the unit off before you do anything to it, including leaning. Leaves and debris can build up inside the unit and cause damage.

TIP! A good way to save money with your air conditioning is by installing a programmable thermostat. A programmable thermostat can save you up to ten percent on your cooling and heating costs by simply turning the thermostat back ten to fifteen percent for eight hours a day.

Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. First, the power should be turned off so things don’t move as you work. Next, pop off the grill, pull out the blades and start cleaning them and the unit itself off gently.

TIP! If you’re away from home during the day, raise the temperature setting on your air conditioner to save money. The house will only heat to certain level and a decent HVAC system can quickly cool this down once you are home.

HVAC is not difficult to understand when you have the right information. Take your time and learn as much as you can, though, so you don’t make any mistakes. Best of luck to you in all your HVAC endeavors.
