A Basic Guide To All Your HVAC Questions And Needs

TIP! Know what type of system you currently have before calling someone to fix it. Know what the manufacturer’s name is, which particular model you have and what’s gone on with the unit in the past.

A healthy HVAC system is important in your home, and so it is important to take care of it. Many times people have high costs to fix a faulty system, but they could avoid the expense if they knew proper maintenance procedures. This article is going to teach you everything you must know about HVAC and will allow you to learn what to do to keep your system running well at all times.

TIP! If your HVAC doesn’t seem to be working properly, check things out yourself prior to calling in a technician. Determine which rooms feel cold and which feel hot.

Before making that repair phone call, make sure you know the specifics about your particular system. Learn the brand, model, and if you have it, the maintenance history. This will help you give the new contractor the necessary information.

TIP! What do you need done? Know this before calling a contractor. It is going to be hard to get a price estimate on the phone if the current system isn’t something they’ve seen.

The coils and blades on the fans should be cleaned once a year. First, the power should be turned off so things don’t move as you work. Secondly, pop the grill off, take the blades off and clean them as well as the actual unit.

TIP! If the fan on your condenser includes oil ports, they must be lubricated annually. You’ll see that the ports here are closed with a rubber or metal cap.

The HVAC unit in your home can become damaged from falling leaves. Make sure you clean out your fan grill often once nearby trees start shedding their leaves. The fan should have a clear path for air to come in. If it is blocked, your system will suffer.

TIP! Have your HVAC serviced at least yearly. Ideally, you should have it looked at in the spring and fall so you know everything is set for the hot and cold months.

When it gets cold outside, the outdoor condenser unit should be turned off. If the outside temp is under 60 degrees, turn the unit off to prevent damage. This will ensure your system stays in good working order every year, saving you money on costly repairs.

TIP! Condenser units for the outdoors should be shut off when it starts to get cold outside. When the temperature goes below 60 degrees, shut off the unit in order to prevent damage.

To save money and be more comfortable in your home, install double-paned windows instead of single pane. Double pane windows help minimize your air conditioning use in the summer by keeping the cooler air inside your home. This also helps keep it warm in the winter.

TIP! To save money and be more comfortable in your home, install double-paned windows instead of single pane. Double pane windows will allow you to use less air during the summer because cooler air will stay in your house.

The HVAC unit is integral to any home. The suggestions above should help you save money on expensive repairs to your HVAC system. But, you need to need them in order to prevent the need to spend lots of extra money.
