Use This Great Tips About Hvac To Help You Better Understand

TIP! Before you hire an HVAC contractor, have some sort of idea of the work that needs to be done. A contractor will be hard pressed to provide you with an over-the-phone estimate if unfamiliar with your system.

If you’re planning on working with your HVAC system, then it’s best to arm yourself with these helpful tips first. You’ll find some great information in the following article that will give you the basics. Take the time to read the article and you will do well.

TIP! Regularly remove debris from outside condenser units. Leaves, twigs and other troublesome objects can accumulate, particularly after very windy weather, and this will wreak havoc on your system.

Prior to putting in a service call on your HVAC, be able to identify it. Learn the brand, model, and if you have it, the maintenance history. That way you can provide the contractor with all the necessary information.

TIP! Do not allow grass clippings to cover the outdoor unit of your HVAC system. Now so the grass clippings are shot away from your unit.

Clean the condenser coils and fan at the beginning of the year to help the unit run efficiently. Prior to working on or cleaning the unit, be sure to turn off the power. In addition, be sure to get rid of any leaves or other debris that may have accumulated on the outside condenser.

TIP! If your condenser comes with oil ports, you should lubricate it yearly. A rubber or metal cap is typically placed over such ports.

You can boost the efficiency of your HVAC unit by replacing it with a new energy efficient one or moving your old one to a shady outside location. As your air conditioner sucks in cool air, little will have to be done to cool it any further, saving you a ton on your energy bills.

TIP! To boost the efficiency of your HVAC system, you should put your unit in a shady place. It will reduce the temperature of the air going into the unit, meaning that it will not have to work as hard to cool it.

Consumers are usually advised to have their HVAC systems inspected twice a year. Generally, you want it done in the fall and the spring. You should have it looked at even if no problems are occurring; there could still be a problem or potential problem.

TIP! Have the HVAC system checked twice a year at the least. The normally recommended time for HVAC system inspections is once before the peak cooling season when it gets hot and you’ll be using your AC, and once before the peak heating season, during the cold months when you’re likely to be using your heat.

During cold weather , be sure to turn off outdoor condenser units. Once the temperature drops into the 50s, the unit should no longer be on. This helps your system remain in good working order.

TIP! Once it gets cold outside, you should turn off the outdoor condenser unit. If the outside temp is under 60 degrees, turn the unit off to prevent damage.

This information should have helped you understand your HVAC better. You just have to learn the information and do things step-by-step so that you don’t run into any trouble. Good luck with this and hopefully you can get things to work well for you now!
