A bad HVAC is a real nightmare. You probably came to this article to learn how to keep your HVAC system running and healthy for a long time. What follows is some great information to help you begin.

Before calling for help, know the system you have. Look for the model and brand number. This makes sure your contractor will be sufficiently prepared.

TIP! Many homeowners forget to oil their condenser at least once per year, but it is required. They are usually fitted with a rubber or metal cap.

Before contacting a repair service, do a short tour of the entire home. Determine which rooms are hotter or colder than they should be. Give this information to your contractor when they arrive.

TIP! Installing double paned windows can save a lot of money over single panes, so upgrade if you are able. To keep your home cool, investing in double pane windows is a must.

Understand what you want before talking to a contractor. You can’t get a decent estimate over a telephone, so disregard those numbers and wait until they view your system. You need to know how to describe any issues. You need to know this before you begin.

TIP! Having a programmable thermostat installed is a money saving idea. Programmable thermostats can reduce your power HVAC energy costs by as much as ten percent, just by dialing back your thermostat ten or fifteen percent up to eight daily hours.

Make sure that you regularly clean debris that might build up on external condenser units. Debris quickly gathers here, even more so if there is a storm. This can cause major issues with your system. Overheating may be the result if you don’t.

TIP! Regularly having your HVAC system serviced can help keep your heating and cooling bills down. When they come out for a service visit, expect inspections of freon levels and the motor, and they will oil all the moving parts.

You should clean your condenser fan’s blades and coils every spring. Before you begin cleaning the unit, make sure that it is unplugged. Then, remove the grill, then remove the blades and begin the cleaning process of the blades and the unit.

TIP! Always take the time to check out the reputation of any HVAC contractor before you consider hiring them. You may also want to check with the BBB for information.

It’s a good idea to put your outdoor compressor in a shady area. The unit will operate more efficiently to cool your home if the intake air is cooler to begin with.

TIP! Some air conditioners can ice up. Freezes also occur in your drain line.

You absolutely must take proper care of the HVAC unit if you would like to prevent serious damage from occurring. If you have your HVAC system go bad it can cost you a lot of money to get it fixed. Prevent this from happening by sticking to the great tips that you found here.
