Confused About Getting The Right HVAC Help? This Article Will Help!

TIP! Avoid showering your outdoor unit with grass clippings when you mow the lawn. Instead, make sure that the grass is shooting in the opposite direction.

An efficient HVAC system is needed to live in comfortable home. At the same time, a malfunctioning system can make your home inhabitable to some. They can be costly to repair, but living in discomfort is not an option. It is best to maintain your HVAC system properly, and tips in that regard are found below.

TIP! Try to prevent debris from getting in your HVAC unit. Be sure to clean your fan grill frequently when trees nearby are shedding.

Be aware of the type of system that is installed in your home prior to calling a contractor to fix it. Know the model and brand and find it’s maintenance history, if possible. This will let you know that you’re able to give the contractor the information that can help them.

TIP! If the condenser fan has oil parts, then you need to lubricate it at least once per year. You can find these ports covered with rubber or metal caps.

To make sure your condenser fan works properly, keep the fan blades and the coils clean. Always shut the power off before doing any work or cleaning on the unit. Also, be sure to clear leaves and debris from your condenser unit.

When selecting a location for an outdoor compressor, opt for a shady area, if possible. This will limit the work that it has to do.

TIP! It is a good idea to replace single-paned windows with ones that have double panes. Good double pane windows keep cool air in during the summer and minimize your utility expenses.

If you can, use double-paned windows instead of single-paned ones. To keep your home cool, investing in double pane windows is a must. Likewise, in the winter more hot air stays inside during the cold season.

TIP! Service your hearing and cooling systems once each year. During this service visit, they will inspect the motor of the system, oil the moving parts and check the freon levels in the system.

If nobody is home, turn off the AC. With the system off, the house will only heat up to a certain temperature. If the A/C is on when you’re gone, it’ll be working hard constantly.

TIP! Research multiple contractors before choosing one. Check with the BBB and online reviews as well.

Don’t let your home get way too hot to where it’s dangerous. Your average AC unit can only reduce the temperature in your home by about 20 degrees in a normal span of time. So, if your home temp reaches 100 degrees, your air conditioning will only bring that temp down to about 80 degrees. While it depends on the humidity, this is not safe for a human to sleep in to recover from the heat of the summer.

TIP! There are plenty of online tools, such as sizing calculators, which can help you find the best unit to cool your home. If you buy something too large it won’t be efficient as it cools the same.

To make your home liveable and comfortable, your HVAC system is an important part of that. If you don’t keep it maintained well, then you won’t have a nice place to call home in the end. Put these tips to good use and avoid this from happening.
