Tips From The Pros For Your HVAC Needs At Home Or The Office

TIP! Before choosing an HVAC contractor, think of what you wish to have done. It will be difficult for an HVAC contractor to provide you with an estimate on the phone without knowing what your current setup is.

A lot of people have an HVAC type of unit where they live. An HVAC is a unit that helps keep a house at a comfortable temperature. Most people will need the help of an HVAC expert to repair it or install it. Read on to learn more about HVAC systems.

TIP! Keep outside condenser fans running smoothly by cleaning fan blades and coils before the summer begins. Except when cleaning the outside, turn the unit off when performing any type of maintenance.

Prior to choosing an HVAC customer, try to have an idea of what you want done. It’s hard to get an estimate since they haven’t look at your system. It will be even harder if you cannot explain what you have done. Understand this information beforehand.

Clean your outdoor condensers often. Particularly after bad weather, you should inspect your unit. It will damage the system by overheating.

TIP! Lubricate your fan condenser at least once a year. These ports are often covered by a rubber or metal cap.

Clean the fan blades and coils in your condenser each spring. First, the power should be turned off so things don’t move as you work. Secondly, pop the grill off, take the blades off and clean them as well as the actual unit.

TIP! Once it grows cold outside, turn off your outside condenser unit. This should be done when the temperature drops below 60ºF to avoid damage.

If there are oil ports on your fan condenser, lubricate it annually. These ports are often covered by a rubber or metal cap. 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! A programmable thermostat is a simple way to help save money on air conditioning costs. It changes the temperature so the system isn’t in use when it’s cooler outside or no one is home.

To save money and be more comfortable in your home, install double-paned windows instead of single pane. Double pane windows will allow you to use less air during the summer because cooler air will stay in your house. When it is cold in the winter months, these same windows will keep the warm air inside as well.

TIP! To help keep your energy costs down, have your heating and cooling system serviced at least once a year. During service the technician will check the motor and refill the system fluids.

As you are now aware, a number of things can be done well when you need to deal with home HVAC systems and the contractors that work on them. It is important that this piece of equipment is installed and maintained properly. Use these tips to choose the right contractor to work on or install your HVAC system.
