Tons Of Tips And Tricks For HVAC Success

TIP! If you’ve been having trouble with an HVAC system, look around your home before calling in people to help. Note which rooms are hot and which are cold.

Many people choose to have an HVAC unit in their home. These units make sure homes stay at a temperature that is comfortable. If you have an HVAC system, you will likely need help from a professional from time to time. The following information will give any homeowner the info they need to know about HVAC as well.

TIP! Understand what you want before talking to a contractor. Discussing the problem is simplified if you understand what has happened with the unit.

Before you choose someone to do HVAC work, figure out what they need to do for you. It will be difficult for an HVAC contractor to provide you with an estimate on the phone without knowing what your current setup is. They need to come look at the unit. Having this information handy will make the process much smoother.

TIP! If the condenser for your HVAC system is located outside, make sure you clear away any debris that might settle in or around it. You don’t know when things are going to pile up, like right after it’s windy or rains, and that can ruin your system.

Make sure your condenser fan is in good working order by wiping down the fan blades and the coils. First, the power should be turned off so things don’t move as you work. Then you need to get the grill popped off and get the blades out so you can clean them and your unit gently.

TIP! Turn off your outdoor condenser when it’s getting cold. To avoid damage, units should be turned off when temperatures are below 60 degrees.

Do not allow grass clippings to cover the outdoor unit of your HVAC system. Turn your lawnmower in the opposite direction. If you’re blowing leaves, this same problem can occur, so make sure you move around the unit and blow the leaves away from it.

TIP! If you are a homeowner, or if you can get permission from your landlord, install double-paned windows in place of any single panes in your home. Double pane windows can help minimize how much you use your air conditioner in the summer, because they keep cool air inside the home.

As you notice the tress begin to lose their leaves, keep an eye on your outdoor condenser unit. Be sure to clean your fan grill frequently when trees nearby are shedding. Because the fan requires a clear path for air to enter, you may encounter issues with your system if the fan gets blocked up.

TIP! Consider getting a programmable thermostat for your AC. In fact, you can save as much as 10 percent on both heating and cooling when you turn your thermostat by by 10-15 percent for at least 8 hours daily.

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 to have your HVAC unit installed and working properly. When you put this advice to good use, you will know more about what your options are when it comes to dealing with your HVAC.
