Many homeowners will find it difficult to find help if their heating and cooling systems fails. It is worth learning about your system so that you can make a more informed decision. This article was put together to help homeowners to find the help they have to get.

TIP! It is important to have some knowledge of your present system and needs before calling a contractor. A contractor cannot give an accurate estimate without looking at your system.

What do you need done? Know this before calling a contractor. It is going to be hard to get a price estimate on the phone if the current system isn’t something they’ve seen. You need to know how to describe any issues. This is information that you should have prepared in advance.

TIP! Make certain that you clean your condenser when the weather begins to warm. Make sure to turn off the fan’s power first to be safe.

Clean your condenser’s fan blades and coils come spring. Before you clean the surface, be sure to turn off the power. Keep the exterior of the condenser unit free of debris.

TIP! Don’t get grass clippings on your outside unit. When you work with your lawn mower, make sure it spits the grass to the side opposite of your unit.

Be careful when doing yard work that you do not get debris on or in your unit. Now so the grass clippings are shot away from your unit. If you’re blowing leaves, this same problem can occur, so make sure you move around the unit and blow the leaves away from it.

TIP! The HVAC unit in your home can become damaged from falling leaves. During this time of year, check and clear off the fan grill on your unit on a regular basis.

Leaves and debris can damage your system. Make sure the fan’s grill is cleaned often during the fall. If your fan is obstructed, it can keep your system from working properly.

TIP! Make sure your HVAC unit is in the shade. You save money this way because the air conditioner is now pulling in cooler air, which is easier to cool further.

For maximum efficiency, place outdoor units in a shady spot. When your unit sucks in cooler air, then much less is required to cool it further, which saves you money on energy bills.

TIP! If at all possible, install double-paned windows in your home instead of those with a single pane. Try to insulate your windows to prevent air from being lost.

Turn off your outdoor condenser when it’s getting cold. If the outside temp is under 60 degrees, turn the unit off to prevent damage. Doing this keeps your system working well for years and saves you from having to spend money to repair it.

TIP! Have a smart thermostat installed. A thermostat that’s programmable is going to save you around ten percent on the heating and cooling costs you have to pay when you turn it back about fifteen percent for a part of the day.

Nobody wants their HVAC system to break down in the dead of winter or during the dog days of summer. But if they know what’s going on, they can quickly fix the situation. These tips can help homeowners make HVAC decisions that are smart.
