Good Solid Advice About Hvac That Anyone Can Use

TIP! Before you start calling to find someone to fix your unit, make sure you know the type of system that is installed. Write down the make, model, and any maintenance history.

Many people do not give their HVAC units a second thought until it quits working. Of course then it becomes extremely important to fix. Finding a new person to repair your system or put in a new system can be a challenge. The best way to find one is by reading the following article.

TIP! By the end of spring, the fan blades and coils of your condenser should be thoroughly cleaned, so operation can proceed with greater efficiency. Before you clean the surface, be sure to turn off the power.

Know the name and type of your HVAC system before looking for a repair person. Get the brand, model name, and if you can you should get the maintenance history out. 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! You should clean your condenser fan’s blades and coils every spring. First, make sure the power is off to ensure nothing moves while you are working.

If the outside of your home has condenser units, ensure they are constantly cleaned. Things tend to pile up around these units, especially after storms come through, which could cause problems to your system. Left unchecked, your unit is more likely to break down.

TIP! Lubricate the oil ports on your condenser once each year. Such ports tend to have coverings made of rubber or metal.

Clean your condenser’s fan blades and coil in the spring. Be sure to turn the power off first; you don’t want anything to move. Next, pop the grill off, put the blades out and start to gently clean them along with the unit.

TIP! If you are choosing where to place your outdoor compressor device, try to put it in a place where there is plenty of shade. The cooler air that the unit can suck in, the less work it will need to do to further cool the air.

In order for your new unit to be as efficient as possible, or to make older units more efficient, make sure it’s put in a shaded area. As it brings in cool air to cool, you will save a lot of money.

TIP! If the current location of your HVAC unit outside isn’t working, try having it moved to an area with more shade. As it brings in cool air to cool, you will save a lot of money.

If you are a homeowner, or if you can get permission from your landlord, install double-paned windows in place of any single panes in your home. They help cool air remain inside your home, effectively cutting back on how much you have to run your air conditioner. This also helps retain heated air during the colder months.

TIP! Get your HVAC unit serviced two times per year. The normally recommended time for HVAC system inspections is once before the peak cooling season when it gets hot and you’ll be using your AC, and once before the peak heating season, during the cold months when you’re likely to be using your heat.

After reading this, you probably know more about HVAC systems. If you have a system in need of repair or replacement, you know what you need to do. Remember this so you can find the proper system.
