Get Educated About Hvac With These Simple To Follow Tips

TIP! Before choosing an HVAC contractor, think of what you wish to have done. A contractor will not be able to give you an accurate price without accurate information about your system.

It’s important to efficiently heat and cool your home. That means your HVAC has to be in tip top shape. Otherwise, you may end up with excessive repair bills and unbearable temperatures. Here are some tips to get you started.

TIP! To make sure your condenser fan works properly, keep the fan blades and the coils clean. Except when cleaning the outside, turn the unit off when performing any type of maintenance.

Before calling for help, know the system you have. Find out the brand and model and, if possible, dig out the maintenance history. This will let you know that you’re able to give the contractor the information that can help them.

TIP! When you cut the grass, don’t cover the outdoor units with their clippings. Instead, make sure that the grass is shooting in the opposite direction.

If you have some problems with the HVAC system, check out your home before calling a contractor. Find out which rooms are hot and which are cold. That will help your repairman figure out where the problem is, and how he can fix it easily and quickly.

TIP! As the trees around your home lose leaves, it can cause your HVAC unit trouble. Make sure the unit’s fan grill is cleaned frequently when the leaves begin to fall.

Know what work you want done before you select an HVAC contractor. It will be hard for a contractor to give you a price estimate over the phone if they have not seen your current system. You need to know how to describe any issues. You need to know this before you begin.

Outside Condenser

TIP! Get your HVAC unit serviced two times per year. Most homeowners choose to have their unit inspected during the spring and the fall months.

Keeping the outside condenser clean of debris and leaves will improve the system’s efficiency. Turn off the power if you are going to work on your HVAC system. Also, it is important to clear the outside condenser unit from any debris that maybe trapped inside.

TIP! Turn off your outdoor condenser when it’s getting cold. To prevent damage, turn off your unit if the outside temperature is less than 60 degrees.

A shady spot is always a good choice for the placement of your outdoor compressor. When the unit sucks in cooler air, then less work is required to cool it further which in turn boosts the units efficiency.

TIP! To help keep your energy costs down, have your heating and cooling system serviced at least once a year. The contractor should oil the parts that move and check the motor and freon levels.

You now have an idea of what it takes to keep an HVAC system running great. Don’t allow things to go bad because you don’t pay attention to doing maintenance. Use what you’ve learned here to keep things working right so you don’t get home and find out there’s a disaster on your hands.
