Preparation Is Key When It Comes To HVAC

TIP! Before you hire an HVAC contractor, have some sort of idea of the work that needs to be done. If you can’t describe the problem, you may not get an accurate quote.

When a home HVAC system develops issues, homeowners often don’t know where to begin. The more prepared you are on this topic, the less of a disaster it will be. This article was written to help homeowners get the proper help they need for their HVAC unit.

TIP! Clean the coils of your condenser fan each month. Before you clean the unit, be sure to turn off the power.

Leaves and debris can damage your system. Be sure to clean your fan grill frequently when trees nearby are shedding. When blockages restrict the flow of air to the fan, you could end up with serious issues on your hands.

TIP! If your condenser units are outisde, make sure any debris is cleaned from them regularly. Wind can pile up all sorts of debris against its grill.

Lubricate your fan condenser at least once a year. These ports are typically covered with caps made of metal or rubber. Use a lightweight oil and do not overfill them.

TIP! You must keep your HVAC systems oil ports lubricated annually. Most of these ports have some sort of protective cap covering them.

Have your heating and cooling system inspected twice a year. Check into it twice a year before you head into the hot and cold months. Even if you can’t see anything wrong, checking it may help you locate and repair some possible issues.

Double Pane

TIP! If you own your own home or have permission from your landlord, replace your single pane windows with double paned versions. In warmer months, these windows will help to maintain the cooler inside temperature.

If the house is yours or you’re permitted to, replace the windows that are single pane with windows that are double pane. Double pane windows will help keep your home cooler in the summer. When it is cold in the winter months, these same windows will keep the warm air inside as well.

TIP! Get your HVAC unit serviced yearly. The service will include motor inspection, oiling of moving parts, and a freon level check.

Consider getting a programmable thermostat for your AC. 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. Plus, some models allow you to control them over the internet or from a smartphone.

TIP! Never allow the temperature in your home to rise to a dangerously high level. Air conditioners really can only cool a home down about 20 degrees Fahrenheit within a reasonable amount of time.

It is common knowledge that having a home’s cooling or heating system fail in the middle of a heat wave or in the chilly grip of winter can cause a real headache for homeowners. If you perform regular maintenance, you are less likely to experience an untimely break down. The suggestions in this article can help anyone homeowner with their decisions in HVAC services.
