Your HVAC Should Be Working For You, Here’s How

TIP! If problems arise with the HVAC system, check the entire house before contacting someone to come for repairs. Pay attention to which areas of the house are warm and which ones are cool.

HVAC systems seem to break down just when the weather gets really hot or really cold. Learning about the topic means being able to make decisions down the road. Read this article to learn more.

TIP! Before you choose an HVAC contractor, have an idea in your mind of what needs to be done. This is necessary so that they can give you a quote before doing any work.

When you start making calls to get someone to help with your HVAC system, it’s a good idea to know what system you have before that phone call. Write down the make, model, and any maintenance history. This will help make sure that the contractor you hire has all the necessary information.

TIP! In order to keep your outside condenser fan running efficiently, make sure the coils and the fan blades are cleaned before the cooling season begins. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit.

Don’t hire a contractor until you know a little about what you are facing. A contractor will be hard pressed to provide you with an over-the-phone estimate if unfamiliar with your system. They also won’t be able to offer you a quote if they don’t have a detailed idea of what you want done. This is information that you should have prepared in advance.

Outside Condenser

TIP! Make certain that an outdoor unit is in the shade. If it sucks in cool air, it will need to work less to coll the air inside, which can make it last longer.

Help the outside condenser fan run efficiently by cleaning the coils and fan blades before the summer starts. Always shut the power off before doing any work or cleaning on the unit. Also, it is important to clear the outside condenser unit from any debris that maybe trapped inside.

TIP! Get your HVAC unit serviced two times per year. Checks in the spring as well as in autumn are the best.

Clean any debris that accumulates on an external condenser unit. Debris quickly gathers here, even more so if there is a storm. This can cause major issues with your system. It could get too hot, leading to even more problems.

TIP! If at all possible, install double-paned windows in your home instead of those with a single pane. Windows that are double pane keep the cool air in and can greatly reduce the amount of time your air conditioner will need to run.

Every spring you should clean the coils and fan blades on your condenser fan. First, make sure the power is off to ensure nothing moves while you are working. Take the grill off and pull the blades out to clean them.

TIP! Having a programmable thermostat installed is a money saving idea. 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.

Getting help from a HVAC professional might be intimidating. But, with the right tips, you will know how to find a professional you can trust. You should be ready to run to the next HVAC service and get the job done now that you’ve read this article.
