No More Struggle – HVAC Success Is Yours!

TIP! Clean the condenser coils and fan at the beginning of the year to help the unit run efficiently. Turn off the power if you are going to work on your HVAC system.

The HVAC system you have in your house is not something you know about until it no longer works. When it happens, it can be traumatic. Locating a contractor to work on your unit, or to put in a new one, isn’t easy. The best way to find one is by reading the following article.

TIP! Each spring it’s time to clean the inside of your condenser unit, including the fan and the sensitive coil. Be sure to turn the power off first; you don’t want anything to move.

Go through your home before you call HVAC professional. Figure out which rooms are hot and cold. This can help contractors quickly figure out the issue and how to fix it easily and quickly.

TIP! When you’re trying to cut your grass, don’t cover a unit outside with the clippings. Have the grass shoot in the opposite direction.

Before you choose an HVAC contractor, have an idea in your mind of what needs to be done. It will be hard for a contractor to give you a price estimate over the phone if they have not seen your current system. If you are unable to explain the work that needs to be taken care of, the conversation will be even less fruitful. So, you should know this beforehand.

TIP! You can boost the efficiency of your HVAC unit by replacing it with a new energy efficient one or moving your old one to a shady outside location. 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.

Keep your outdoor units free of debris when you are mowing the lawn. Instead, make sure that the grass is shooting in the opposite direction. This applies when you are taking care of the leaves in the yard.

TIP! Check your unit at least twice each year. This should be done in Fall and Spring to prepare it for the extreme months.

Your outdoor HVAC units might suffer when your trees lose leaves. When you see nearby trees shedding their leaves, clean the fan grill on your unit constantly. The fan must not have anything in the way so that air can flow into it, and if it is clogged, you’ll have a lot of headaches eventually.

TIP! As the temperature outside drops, remember to turn off your outdoor condenser unit. When the temperature goes below 60 degrees, shut off the unit in order to prevent damage.

Some fan condensers may contain oil parts, and if yours does, ensure it is lubricated at least once per year. You can find these ports covered with rubber or metal caps. You should select an SAE 20 oil since it is lightweight and does not contain detergent. Be sure to use just 10 drops or so, or your system may overfill.

TIP! Update the windows in your home to double-paned if you own it. 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.

This article will make you more knowledgeable about all the different HVAC systems available. There are certain things you need to do and certain things you should avoid doing. Keep these suggestions in mind in your search for the right system.
