HVAC Purchase Advice Made Easy To Understand

TIP! Clean your fan and coils when the weather begins to warm. Prior to working on or cleaning the unit, be sure to turn off the power.

Your HVAC system is a key piece of equipment in your home, and letting it go bad is not an option. You may be here because you wish to learn all you can to make your HVAC last a long time. The following article offers lots of great tips.

TIP! Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. First, make sure the power is off to ensure nothing moves while you are working.

Know the name and type of your HVAC system before looking for a repair person. Take a look at the system or the owner’s manual to find the name and model number. The contractor will likely need all of this information.

TIP! When you cut the grass, don’t cover the outdoor units with their clippings. Turn your lawnmower in the opposite direction.

Before you choose someone to do HVAC work, figure out what they need to do for you. A contractor will be hard pressed to provide you with an over-the-phone estimate if unfamiliar with your system. In addition, you need to be able to tell the contractor what you have already tried. So, have this information ready.

Outside Condenser

TIP! When the weather cools down, turn your outdoor condenser off. If you get into temperatures that are less than 60 degrees you need the unit to be shut off so it doesn’t get damaged.

Keep outside condenser fans running smoothly by cleaning fan blades and coils before the summer begins. Except when cleaning the outside, turn the unit off when performing any type of maintenance. Additionally, remove leaves and any other debris from the outside condenser unit.

TIP! Replace any single-paned windows with double-paned versions. 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.

Clean your outdoor condensers often. Things tend to pile up around these units, especially after storms come through, which could cause problems to your system. This can lead to overheating.

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. It changes the temperature so the system isn’t in use when it’s cooler outside or no one is home.

Keep your outdoor units free of debris when your cutting grass. Make sure the grass does not get in your unit. Also do this when blowing leaves or shoveling snow.

TIP! If you want to ensure you choose a trustworthy HVAC contractor, invest a little time in researching a few different companies, checking out their reputations. It can be helpful to check out the online reviews of previous customers and it is always wise to check their reputation as listed on a Better Business Bureau website.

During the fall, leaves can gather around your HVAC. Clean the fan grill often when leaves are falling. The air needs to be unobstructed into the fan, and any blockages create performance issues for the whole system.

You have to care for your HVAC. If it breaks, it can be quite costly to get up and running again. Prevent this from occurring by using these tips.
