HVAC Purchase Advice Made Easy To Understand

TIP! If your HVAC system us giving you issues, take a look around the house prior to calling a contractor. Pay attention to which areas of the house are warm and which ones are cool.

Your home can remain comfortable when your HVAC system is properly working. The right amount of cool air on a hot day, or having hot air blowing when it’s cold outside, is a great feeling. If your HVAC system fails, however, it can be a nightmare. Learning how to maintain your unit minimizes the chances of a breakdown; these tips will prove very useful.

TIP! Before choosing a HVAC company find out what the company offers. It will be difficult for an HVAC contractor to provide you with an estimate on the phone without knowing what your current setup is.

Before making that repair phone call, make sure you know the specifics about your particular system. Take a look at the system or the owner’s manual to find the name and model number. This information will be helpful to any contractor you hire to repair it.

TIP! Clean the coils of your condenser fan each month. Before you clean the surface, be sure to turn off the power.

If your HVAC system is acting up, take a tour of the house prior to calling a professional. Determine which rooms feel cold and which feel hot. This will help your contractor quickly determine where the issue lies and how to get it fixed quickly and easily.

TIP! The coils and blades on the fans should be cleaned once a year. Turn it off first so you don’t get hurt or break something.

Make sure that you regularly clean debris that might build up on external condenser units. Falling leaves and wind or rain may cause debris to reduce the efficiency of your unit. It can cause the unit to overheat and break down.

Grass Clippings

TIP! A good place to place your compressor unit outside is in a shady spot. The cooler the air which goes in, the less work the unit will have to do.

When you cut the grass, don’t cover the outdoor units with their clippings. Direct the grass clippings in a direction away from the HVAC unit. This includes grass clippings and leaves.

TIP! To help keep your energy costs down, have your heating and cooling system serviced at least once a year. During the visit, the contractor will oil parts, inspect the motor and the freon levels.

As the trees around your home lose leaves, it can cause your HVAC unit trouble. Make certain you are cleaning the fan grill often if trees nearby have leaves that are falling. The fan must not have anything in the way so that air can flow into it, and if it is clogged, you’ll have a lot of headaches eventually.

TIP! If nobody is home, turn off the air conditioner to save money. By raising the temperature from, for example 78 to 80, your house will be warmer, but only up to 80 before your AC kicks in.

After reading the above article, you now see the importance to keeping your HVAC in proper working condition. By failing to do routine inspections, you’re setting yourself up for failure. Hopefully, the tips above will help you remain happy with your HVAC system for years to come.
