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

TIP! Tour your home before calling a contractor. Find out which rooms are hot and which are cold.

You might think it’s nearly impossible to learn anything about HVAC. If you take your time, it’s not that hard. This advice will help you out when it comes to HVAC systems.

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

TIP! Clean the coils and blades in your condenser at the beginning of summer. Always shut the power off before doing any work or cleaning on the unit.

Go through your home before you call HVAC professional. Find out which rooms are hot and which are cold. This will help your contractor quickly determine where the issue lies and how to get it fixed quickly and easily.

TIP! When spring rolls around, give the condenser fan blades and coils a good clean. Make sure to turn off the fan’s power first to be safe.

If there are condenser units as part of your HVAC system, clean them often as they tend to have lots of debris. Excess debris can really affect your system’s quality. It may begin to overheat, causing massive damage.

TIP! When you mow your lawn, take care that you don’t get grass clippings all over your outdoor unit. Shoot grass the other way.

You should clean your condenser fan’s blades and coils every spring. First, turn off the power so that nothing will move as you are working on it. Next, remove the grill, take the blades and clean them gently, then clean the actual unit.

TIP! When the weather starts to cool down, make sure you turn off outdoor condenser units. If temps go below 60 you run the risk of damaging a unit that remains on.

When you cut the grass, make sure your mower isn’t tossing clippings toward your outdoor units. Have the grass shoot in the opposite direction. Do the same when blowing snow or leaves.

TIP! It is always a good idea to swap out single pane windows for double pane ones. Double pane windows will help keep your home cooler in the summer.

If you want to know where you should put an outdoor compressor, you should place it somewhere where there is a lot of shade. In this way, it will be cooling air that is already somewhat cooled. This saves energy.

TIP! Keep energy costs from rising by having your system serviced annually. An HVAC specialist will inspect the entire system, including the oil, the motor, and the ducts.

You need to have a contractor review your unit twice a year. The best times to have the system checked is spring and fall, so you are sure everything is running at peak performance before the heating and cooling seasons. Even if everything seems okay, it doesn’t hurt to check things out.

TIP! Don’t let your home get way too hot to where it’s dangerous. An AC unit will reduce the internal temperature of your home approximately twenty degrees in a fair time.

This article should have been quite informative if you have decided to learn about HVAC. Using the suggestions here should help you in keeping your unit working at optimum levels. Use it properly, and you could even earn money from it.
