TIP! Before calling anyone to repair your system, know what system you have. Get the brand, model name, and if you can you should get the maintenance history out.

You might not worry much about your HVAC system until it breaks down. At the point of breakdown, however, it is impossible to ignore. Selecting the best contractor to fix or install an HVAC need not be intimidating. This article can help you navigate your way through the process.

TIP! Understand what you want before talking to a contractor. It will be hard for a contractor to give you a price estimate over the phone if they have not seen your current system.

Before calling anyone to repair your system, know what system you have. Write down the make, model, and any maintenance history. This will help you give the new contractor the necessary information.

TIP! Clean the coils of your condenser fan each month. Always make sure you shut off the power before you do any work on the unit other than superficial cleaning.

Regularly remove debris from outside condenser units. Falling leaves and wind or rain may cause debris to reduce the efficiency of your unit. It can cause the unit to overheat and break down.

TIP! Make sure your condenser fan is in good working order by wiping down the fan blades and the coils. Don’t forget to disconnect the power first.

Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. First, turn off the power so that nothing will move as you are working on it. Remove the grill and carefully clean the blades and surrounding areas.

Place your HVAC unit in the shade to boost efficiency. This will ensure cool air is sucked in, meaning less cooling must be done by the unit.

TIP! As the temperature outside drops, remember to turn off your outdoor condenser unit. The unit will become damaged if you do not take care of it.

You need to have a contractor review your unit twice a year. Generally, you want it done in the fall and the spring. Even if you don’t think anything’s wrong, it’s still worth an inspection.

TIP! Replace single pane windows by installing double pane, if possible. Having double pane windows allows your air conditioning unit to be run much less during the summer, because the cool air is kept inside the home.

Turn off your outdoor condenser when it becomes cold out. This should be done when the temperature drops below 60ºF to avoid damage. This helps the system last much longer and will have to be repaired less often.

TIP! Turn off your air conditioner when no one is home to help save money. By raising the temperature from, for example 78 to 80, your house will be warmer, but only up to 80 before your AC kicks in.

You are done reading the article, and now you should be a bit more aware about HVAC systems. If you want to replace or repair your system, you need to find out what you should avoid and look for. Keep this advice in mind to find the right system.
