Check Out This Article On Hvac That Offers Many Great Tips

TIP! Be aware of the type of system that is installed in your home prior to calling a contractor to fix it. Write down the brand and the model and have all maintenance records on hand.

An HVAC unit is a crucial part of any home. It needs to be properly maintained. You could pay more if your HVAC system doesn’t work right. The following article has some great tips for keeping your HVAC system working well, so continue to read.

TIP! Check the whole house before you call for help. Pay attention to which areas of the house are warm and which ones are cool.

Before you start calling to find someone to fix your unit, make sure you know the type of system that is installed. Take a look at the system or the owner’s manual to find the name and model number. This will help you give the new contractor the necessary information.

TIP! Think about what improvements you want made before picking an HVAC contractor. It will be difficult for an HVAC contractor to provide you with an estimate on the phone without knowing what your current setup is.

If your unit is outdoors, clean them regularly. Falling leaves and wind or rain may cause debris to reduce the efficiency of your unit. It could overheat and cause a disaster with your unit.

TIP! Clean the condenser coils and fan at the beginning of the year to help the unit run efficiently. Turn off the power if you are going to work on your HVAC system.

Be sure to clean the fan blades and coils of the condenser fan. First, the power should be turned off so things don’t move as you work. Then, remove the grill, then remove the blades and begin the cleaning process of the blades and the unit.

TIP! Be sure to regularly clean debris from external condenser units. Debris can pile up after a storm, bringing potential damage with it.

When you cut the grass, don’t cover the outdoor units with their clippings. Make sure the grass does not get in your unit. The same goes for blowing leaves, so always be careful if you are moving debris near your HVAC devices.

Boost energy efficiency by putting your condenser unit in the shade. The air in the shade is cooler and can help save on energy costs.

TIP! When you are choosing a location for the outdoor compressor unit, it’s preferable to use a shaded area. Your unit won’t have to work as hard to cool the inside air if the outside air it sucks from is cooler.

Now that you have read this, you should be better prepared to keep your system running properly. It is very important that regular maintenance be performed, otherwise down the road you are looking at shelling out a lot of money for repairs and higher than normal energy bills. Remember this advice in order to ensure that your HVAC remains in tip top condition.
