What You Need To Learn Before Calling An HVAC Tech For Help

TIP! Before calling for help, know the system you have. Write down the make, model, and any maintenance history.

You may think the topic of HVAC is complex. The reason for that is because a lot goes into this type of system. However, information is available that you might not know about, which will make learning about this simple.

TIP! If you struggle with your HVAC, try touring your home before calling a professional. Pay attention to which areas of the house are warm and which ones are cool.

Before you choose someone to do HVAC work, figure out what they need to do for you. It’s hard to get an estimate since they haven’t look at your system. If you can’t explain changes you’ve made, the process will be even more difficult. Know the right information ahead of time.

TIP! Cleaning the blades and coils will help the system run better. Except when you do superficial cleaning, you need to always make sure the power is off on the unit.

Clean the fan blades and coils in your condenser each spring. Make sure to turn off the fan’s power first to be safe. Remove the grill and the blades, and then you can give them all a gentle clean.

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. Things pile up after storms and damage your system.

When you cut the grass, don’t cover the outdoor units with their clippings. Get the grass shot away from your unit. The same goes for blowing leaves, so always be careful if you are moving debris near your HVAC devices.

Look for shade when placing a compressor outdoors. When your unit takes in cool air, it takes less energy to tool the air, thus boosting efficiency.

TIP! Your system should be checked twice a year. Check into it twice a year before you head into the hot and cold months.

It is very important that your HVAC system is serviced two times a year. This should be checked often for debris and malfunctions. Even if you do not detect a problem, you can identify and fix any potential problems when you have it checked.

Programmable Thermostat

TIP! Keep your air conditioner off when people aren’t home to save you money. You don’t need to keep the house cool if you aren’t there.

Consider getting a programmable thermostat for your AC. 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! Did you know an AC unit can freeze? There are sometimes also freezes that happen in a drain line, and this can be confused for a plumbing leak. If this happens, put your thermostat over to fan.

Familiarizing yourself with HVAC topics should have happened easily, all thanks to reading this piece. Once you are motivated to learn, it’s easier to get started, so make sure you take this into consideration before you begin. When things begin to click, you’ll be glad you did.
