How To Find Out Which HVAC Strategy Is Best For You

TIP! Before choosing a HVAC company find out what the company offers. It will be hard for a contractor to give you a price estimate over the phone if they have not seen your current system.

The cooling and heating system in your home plays a major role in your comfort. Therefore, you must have a great HVAC system in place. If you don’t take good care of it, you can expect costly repairs and miserable living conditions. What follows is a compilation of tips to help you keep your HVAC system in working order.

TIP! Clean your fan and coils when the weather begins to warm. The power to the unit should be removed before you begin any maintenance, even cleaning.

Before calling anyone to repair your system, know what system you have. Look for the model and brand number. 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.

Clean the coils of your condenser fan each month. Before you clean the surface, be sure to turn off the power. Remove leaves and debris from the condenser outside.

TIP! Have your HVAC serviced at least yearly. This should be done in the fall and again in the spring.

Don’t get grass clippings on your outside unit. Turn your lawnmower in the opposite direction. This also applies to leaf blowing and any other yard work that results in debris.

TIP! A programmable thermostat is a simple way to help save money on air conditioning costs. These convenient thermostats may shave ten percent or more off of your bills, because they significantly cut energy use when you’re not around.

As you notice the tress begin to lose their leaves, keep an eye on your outdoor condenser unit. Whenever leaves are falling, consistently clean the fan grill. The fan must stay clear in order to function, and if it gets blocked, you will have to contend with problems.

TIP! If nobody is home, turn off the AC. The house will only heat up to a certain point.

Look for shade when placing a compressor outdoors. Your unit won’t have to work as hard to cool the inside air if the outside air it sucks from is cooler.

Double Pane

TIP! Use an online sizing calculator to help you calculate the proper size of the air conditioning unit you should purchase. If you buy a unit that’s too large, it won’t be energy efficient for your needs.

It is always a good idea to swap out single pane windows for double pane ones. Having a double pane window helps limit your need for air conditioning during the summer months. This also helps retain heated air during the colder months.

TIP! Go to people that you know and ask for recommendations when it is time for you to hire an HVAC contractor. People who have been happy with work they have had done in the past are normally more than happy to recommend their contractors.

You now see what you need to do in order to maintain your HVAC system. If you ignore the system and the required maintenance, then it will fail when you need it the most. Use these tips to keep your HVAC system from failing when it should be running smoothly. It’s not really a tough job at all!
