Need HVAC Help? It’s Found In This Article

TIP! If your HVAC doesn’t seem to be working properly, check things out yourself prior to calling in a technician. Note which rooms are hot and which are cold.

When a home HVAC system develops issues, homeowners often don’t know where to begin. To prevent the situation from becoming disastrous, it is worth any time spent to become familiar with the subject. The following information will help anyone make the right choices for their system.

TIP! Think about what improvements you want made before picking an HVAC 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.

If you have outside condenser units, make sure to regularly clean the debris that builds up. The dirt could pile up and harm your system. If you do not, the unit may get too hot and cause additional problems.

TIP! Cleaning the blades and coils will help the system run better. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit.

HVAC units may suffer when leaves are falling off the trees. Clean the fan grill often when leaves are falling. The fan needs to have an unobstructed path for air to enter the unit, and if it becomes blocked, you will end up with many headaches with the unit.

TIP! Be sure to clean the fan blades and coils of the condenser fan. Turn it off first so you don’t get hurt or break something.

If you can choose the place where your outdoor compressor goes, pick a spot with lots of shade. If your unit is sucking in cooler air, it will have less work to do to cool that air as it sends it inside which boosts efficiency.

If possible, put your HVAC in a shaded area if it is outside. The unit will have to do less work cooling this air.

TIP! Put outdoor units in the shade if you are installing them. This will ensure cool air is sucked in, meaning less cooling must be done by the unit.

Your system should be checked twice a year. Your system should be inspected in Spring and Fall. Whether you know of problems or not, good maintenance will help you to avoid future issues.

TIP! Have the HVAC system serviced twice per year. This should be done in the fall and again in the spring.

If you can, use double-paned windows instead of single-paned ones. Double pane windows help minimize your air conditioning use in the summer by keeping the cooler air inside your home. This also helps retain heated air during the colder months.

TIP! Once it grows cold outside, turn off your outside condenser unit. If the temperature outside is less than 60ºF, be sure to turn off the unit so that you don’t damage it.

When a homeowner’s HVAC unit stops working, they could find themselves in a real pickle. However, homeowners who are educated in basic heating and cooling maintenance can overcome many of the issues that may arise during trying times. Follow these tips to take good care of your HVAC system.
