HVAC: What You Should Know Before You Begin

TIP! If your HVAC system is acting up, take a tour of the house prior to calling a professional. Notice the temperature in each room.

A comfortable house is easy thanks to your HVAC. As these units age, they may need to be replaced. Having good knowledge about HVAC systems is important so when the time comes to find something for your home, you will know exactly what to purchase. Try using these tips.

TIP! Clean your outdoor condensers often. Particularly after bad weather, you should inspect your unit.

Before the summer you should clean out your condenser fan’s blades and coils. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit. Additionally, it’s important to clear out leaves and other debris from the outside condenser unit.

TIP! For maximum efficiency, place outdoor units in a shady spot. It will reduce the temperature of the air going into the unit, meaning that it will not have to work as hard to cool it.

Clean any debris that accumulates on an external condenser unit. Your HVAC system may run into problems after storms if it is surrounded by debris. It can overheat, leading to disaster within your system.

TIP! Get your HVAC unit serviced two times per year. Checks in the spring as well as in autumn are the best.

The HVAC unit in your home can become damaged from falling leaves. 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! Condenser units for the outdoors should be shut off when it starts to get cold outside. The unit will become damaged if you do not take care of it.

If you can choose the place where your outdoor compressor goes, pick a spot with lots of shade. The unit will operate more efficiently to cool your home if the intake air is cooler to begin with.

TIP! If you are a homeowner, or if you can get permission from your landlord, install double-paned windows in place of any single panes in your home. Double-pane windows keep inside air cooler, allowing you to reduce AC usage in the summertime.

Get your HVAC unit serviced two times per year. The normally recommended time for HVAC system inspections is once before the peak cooling season when it gets hot and you’ll be using your AC, and once before the peak heating season, during the cold months when you’re likely to be using your heat. This will help you to avoid problems.

10 Percent

TIP! Avoid allowing your home to ever get exceedingly hot. Your average AC unit can only reduce the temperature in your home by about 20 degrees in a normal span of time.

A good way to save money with your air conditioning is by installing a programmable thermostat. These can save you around 10 percent on your heating and cooling costs by just turning it back 10 percent to 15 percent for around eight hours each day. You can often control it from your mobile phone!

Investing in your HVAC is a must. When you need to repair or replace parts, use these tips. You will make better choices and have a great system.
