What You Must Know About HVAC Purchases

TIP! What system do you have? You need this information to tell your contractor. Write down the make, model, and any maintenance history.

A reliable HVAC system can make one’s home really enjoyable. It’s a great feeling when you come in from a sweltering day, and it’s cool inside, or you come in from a very blustery winter day to the warmth of the inside. However, this can become a nightmare quickly if the HVAC system in your home fails. You must learn proper maintenance for these systems; the article below can help with that.

TIP! Clean your fan blades and coils each spring to ensure that your condenser fan operates at it’s best. Always make sure you shut off the power before you do any work on the unit other than superficial cleaning.

Be aware of the type of system that is installed in your home prior to calling a contractor to fix it. Learn the brand and the model. If you have to have someone come out to repair the unit, you will be able to help the contractor understand more about what is going on.

TIP! If trees are losing leaves around your home, this can impact your HVAC unit. Whenever leaves are falling, consistently clean the fan grill.

Keep your outdoor units free of debris when your cutting grass. Now so the grass clippings are shot away from your unit. The same goes for blowing leaves, so always be careful if you are moving debris near your HVAC devices.

TIP! If there are oil ports on your fan condenser, lubricate it annually. A rubber or metal cap is typically placed over such ports.

When the leaves start to fall, the HVAC equipment can be harmed. Frequently clean the fan grill when trees are shedding leaves. When the fan becomes obstructed, you will lose out on quality air.

TIP! Your HVAC unit requires regular maintenance at least two times per each year. This should happen in the fall and the spring.

If your fan condenser has oil ports, you must lubricate it once per year. A rubber or metal cap is typically placed over such ports. Use a lightweight oil and do not overfill them.

To increase the efficiency of your HVAC unit, be sure to keep it in the shade. It will help you save on your energy bill when you do this.

Programmable Thermostat

TIP! Look for sizing calculators based on the air conditioner you have to figure out how big of a unit you need in your home. If you make the mistake of purchasing a unit that is too large, it will not cool efficiently.

A programmable thermostat can help you save money on your air conditioning bill. A programmable thermostat can save you up to ten percent on your cooling and heating costs by simply turning the thermostat back ten to fifteen percent for eight hours a day. Furthermore, there are a few programmable thermostats that you can control from your computer or any other web-connected device.

TIP! Ask people you know for recommendations if you need to hire a contractor for an HVAC system. People who have had a good experience are often happy to share the name of their contractor.

Now you understand why it’s important to keep the HVAC system working properly. Without routine maintenance, disaster is inevitable. Use the tips in this article to ensure this does not happen.
