HVAC? This Article Has The Tips You Need

TIP! Know the name and type of your HVAC system before looking for a repair person. Write down what brand your system is along with the model number and, if they’re available, maintenance records.

During extreme temperatures, it can be very annoying to need repairs to your HVAC system. The key to finding the right people to install new equipment or repair the old is to learn everything possible about the topic in advance. Read on to do that.

TIP! To make sure your condenser fan works properly, keep the fan blades and the coils clean. Always shut the power off before doing any work or cleaning on the unit.

To make sure your condenser fan works properly, keep the fan blades and the coils clean. Prior to working on or cleaning the unit, be sure to turn off the power. Remove leaves and debris from the condenser outside.

TIP! Clean the condenser on your debris regularly. Particularly after bad weather, you should inspect your unit.

Do not allow grass clippings to cover the outdoor unit of your HVAC system. Aim your grass cuttings in a direction away from your unit. Do the same when blowing snow or leaves.

TIP! Every spring you need to make sure your condenser fan’s coils and blades on the fan part are clean. First, turn the power off so nothing moves when you’re working with it.

A shady spot is always a good choice for the placement of your outdoor compressor. When your unit is bringing in cool air, it will not have to work as hard to cool the air as it moves it inside, boosting efficiency.

TIP! 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. Now so the grass clippings are shot away from your unit.

To boost the efficiency of your HVAC system, you should put your unit in a shady place. The air in the shade is cooler and can help save on energy costs.

TIP! Your system should be checked twice a year. The spring and autumn times are the best time to have it checked.

Once it gets cold outside, you should turn off the outdoor condenser unit. When the temperature drops beneath 60 degrees, it’s time to cut off the unit to prevent damage. This will maximize the life of your unit.

TIP! Double pane your windows to prevent drafts. Windows that are double pane keep the cool air in and can greatly reduce the amount of time your air conditioner will need to run.

If at all possible, install double-paned windows in your home instead of those with a single pane. Double pane windows can minimize the use of your air conditioner in hot weather since they keep the indoor air cooler. Likewise, heat is better retained during the winter.

TIP! Equipping your home with a programmable thermostat can be an excellent way to cut utility costs. Such thermostats help you save around ten percent when it comes to energy costs.

Don’t let the idea of hunting down an HVAC contractor intimidate you. However, if you know the right things, the process becomes easier. Now you can easily deal with any issues which come your way.
