Secrets The HVAC Experts Don’t Want You To Know

TIP! Clean the fan blades and coils prior to summertime. Before you clean the unit, be sure to turn off the power.

Even though it is very important to have an HVAC system that runs optimally, not all homeowners understand how to keep it in good shape. Being able to pick a good HVAC contractor to fix your system is the best thing you can do. The article that follows below can help.

TIP! Clean the debris off your outdoor condenser unit. Leaves, twigs and other troublesome objects can accumulate, particularly after very windy weather, and this will wreak havoc on your system.

Before you contact people to assist you in getting your system fixed, know what kind of system you’re working with in the first place. Find out the brand and model and, if possible, dig out the maintenance history. This will ensure that you can give your new contractor all the information they need.

TIP! Check to determine if the fan condenser on your HVAC system is equipped with oil ports, and if it is, be sure to lubricate every year. You’ll find these ports are covered with a metal or rubber cap.

What do you need done? Know this before calling a contractor. It will be difficult for an HVAC contractor to provide you with an estimate on the phone without knowing what your current setup is. Being unable to explain what has been already done will make it even harder. It’s important to know this beforehand.

TIP! A shady spot is always a good choice for the placement of your outdoor compressor. The cooler air entering the unit will require less work to get to the proper temperature.

Be sure to regularly clean debris from external condenser units. Leaves, twigs and other troublesome objects can accumulate, particularly after very windy weather, and this will wreak havoc on your system. Left unchecked, your unit is more likely to break down.

TIP! If possible, put your HVAC in a shaded area if it is outside. This will help ensure that the AC is pulling in cooler air, reducing the amount of work it has to do and saving you money.

When you cut the grass, make sure your mower isn’t tossing clippings toward your outdoor units. Now so the grass clippings are shot away from your unit. The same should happen if you are blowing leaves, so be especially careful when you are going by your exterior HVAC devices whenever you are moving debris.

TIP! It is very important that your HVAC system is serviced two times a 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.

If at all possible, install double-paned windows in your home instead of those with a single pane. 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 also works during the cold months to keep the warm air inside.

TIP! Double pane your windows to prevent drafts. To keep your home cool, investing in double pane windows is a must.

A properly functioning HVAC system is crucial in maintaining a comfortable home temperature. But, if you aren’t sure who to call, it can be quite frustrating. Thanks to these tips, you’re ready to master your HVAC.
