Don’t Go On Without Reading This Article About HVAC

TIP! Be aware of the type of system that is installed in your home prior to calling a contractor to fix it. Find out the brand and model and, if possible, dig out the maintenance history.

There are a multitude of HVAC choices. How can you make the right choice? What size should you buy? What features does it need? It can be hard to figure out what you need. Use the tips below for advice on picking the right system.

Hvac Contractor

TIP! Before you hire an HVAC contractor, have some sort of idea of the work that needs to be done. Providing you with an accurate estimate over the telephone may be difficult to impossible is they can’t see the system you have.

Before you choose an HVAC contractor, have an idea in your mind of what needs to be done. It will be difficult for an HVAC contractor to provide you with an estimate on the phone without knowing what your current setup is. It can be harder if you don’t know what’s wrong. So, know this information in advance.

TIP! Outdoor condenser units need to be turned off when the weather turns cold. Once the temperature drops into the 50s, the unit should no longer be on.

If your condenser units are outisde, make sure any debris is cleaned from them regularly. The dirt could pile up and harm your system. It could overheat and cause a disaster with your unit.

TIP! If you can, use double-paned windows instead of single-paned ones. In warmer months, these windows will help to maintain the cooler inside temperature.

Every spring you should clean the coils and fan blades on your condenser fan. Turn the power off so nothing moves. Secondly, pop the grill off, take the blades off and clean them as well as the actual unit.

Grass Clippings

TIP! To cut energy costs, you should service your cooling and heating system once a year at least. When it’s checked out, the motor will be inspected, moving parts well oiled and the level of freon adjusted if necessary.

A big mistake that people make is cutting the grass next to the outdoor condenser unit and allowing all of the clippings to blow inside the fan and coil. Aim the grass clippings in the other direction. This includes grass clippings and leaves.

TIP! When you are away from home, adjust your thermostat to a money saving temperature. You don’t need to keep the house cool if you aren’t there.

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. Buy an SAE 20 product that is lightweight, and then put no more than ten drops into the ports.

TIP! Avoid allowing your home to ever get exceedingly hot. AC units will only cool a house down 20 degrees.

You may feel intimidated by the options available when shopping for an HVAC. But, with these tips, the choice should be easier. Use these suggestions to ensure your unit is running at peak efficiency.
