This Article Has Premium Tips For Your HVAC Needs

TIP! It is important to have some knowledge of your present system and needs before calling a contractor. You can’t get a decent estimate over a telephone, so disregard those numbers and wait until they view your system.

Often, people feel overwhelmed trying to understand their HVAC. You do not have to though. This guide is going to give you some awesome advice to go along with that will allow this to be easy for you!

TIP! Don’t let grass clippings pile up against your outdoor condenser. Instead, make sure that the grass is shooting in the opposite direction.

Before calling anyone to repair your system, know what system you have. You need to know who manufactured the product and the item number. Also, get the maintenance records from your files if you have them. That way you can provide the contractor with all the necessary information.

TIP! Leaves and debris can damage your system. When you see nearby trees shedding their leaves, clean the fan grill on your unit constantly.

Before choosing a HVAC company find out what the company offers. A contractor cannot give an accurate estimate without looking at your system. If you do not know what you want, the process can become tedious, especially over the phone. Thus, it is worthwhile to have this knowledge ahead of time.

Clean the debris from outside units often. The dirt could pile up and harm your system. Overheating may be the result if you don’t.

TIP! A good place to place your compressor unit outside is in a shady spot. 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.

Avoid showering your outdoor unit with grass clippings when you mow the lawn. Try shooting the clippings away from it. This is the same if you are using a leaf blower.

TIP! Make sure you have your HVAC system checked at least twice a year. Your system should be inspected in Spring and Fall.

If the condenser fan has oil parts, then you need to lubricate it at least once per year. Most of these ports have some sort of protective cap covering them. Put 10 drops of lightweight, non-detergent SAE oil in each port. Be careful not to use too much.

Double Pane

TIP! A programmable thermostat can really help you out when it comes to your power bills. If you adjust it to keep the house a little warmer or a little cooler during the time you are sleeping, you may see your energy bill go down by as much as ten percent.

Double pane your windows to prevent drafts. Double pane windows will help keep your home cooler in the summer. This will also help you keep in heat when it gets cold.

TIP! Service your HVAC unit at least one time a year. During the service check, the system motor will be inspected, the moving parts will be oiled and the freon levels will be checked All of these little jobs will add up to big savings in energy use, with the improved efficiency.

This advice should make your HVAC issues a piece of cake to deal with. It’s hard to learn without advice like that above, so remember that. Go ahead and get started and you’re sure to do a great job.
