An Easy-to-understand Guide To All Your HVAC Questions

TIP! Always make sure you are up-to-date about your HVAC unit. Know the model and brand and find it’s maintenance history, if possible.

You may not know much about HVACs. Should an emergency occur with your cooling or heating, this may be a problem. The information you will read will help you tremendously.

TIP! Before you ever begin looking for an HVAC contractor, first consider the entire job that you’ll need completed. It will be difficult for an HVAC contractor to provide you with an estimate on the phone without knowing what your current setup is.

Before you contact people to assist you in getting your system fixed, know what kind of system you’re working with in the first place. Take a look at the system or the owner’s manual to find the name and model number. This will give contractor’s a better idea of what to expect before they show up, which will help things go more smoothly on arrival.

TIP! If the fan condenser on your unit has ports for oil, make sure you lubricate it once a year. You can find these ports covered with rubber or metal caps.

If your HVAC system is acting up, take a tour of the house prior to calling a professional. You will be looking to see which of your rooms feel hotter or colder than they should be. This will help your contractor quickly determine where the issue lies and how to get it fixed quickly and easily.

TIP! To boost the efficiency of your HVAC system, you should put your unit in a shady place. When the air conditioner pulls in cooler air, it won’t have to do much more to cool it and that will save you a lot of money on energy bills.

Be sure to regularly clean debris from external condenser units. Leaves, twigs and other troublesome objects can accumulate, particularly after very windy weather, and this will wreak havoc on your system. It can get overheated, which will cause problems with the whole system.

TIP! Consumers are usually advised to have their HVAC systems inspected twice a year. 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 you cut the grass, don’t cover the outdoor units with their clippings. Aim your grass cuttings in a direction away from your unit. This includes grass clippings and leaves.

TIP! Putting in a programmable thermostat is a smart way to cut back on air-conditioning costs. It will help save on your heating and cooling costs by turning itself down at certain times.

If you need to decide the best place to put your outdoor compressor unit, consider putting it in a location that is in the shade. When it draws in air for cooling, it will be more efficient because it will not need to work as hard to cool down the air.

TIP! Keep energy costs from rising by having your system serviced annually. During the visit, the contractor will oil parts, inspect the motor and the freon levels.

Homeowners fear their HVAC system breaking down. However, if you just take your time to learn things about this kind of a topic before things go wrong, it won’t be so bad for you. Keep these tips handy so that you can refer to them as needed.
