How To Make HVAC Equipment Purchases Easier

TIP! What system do you have? You need this information to tell your contractor. Look for the model and brand number.

Good maintenance is important for an HVAC unit. Homeowners can pay a fortune if their HVAC system is not running properly. The following article has some great tips for keeping your HVAC system working well, so continue to read.

TIP! If your condenser units are outisde, make sure any debris is cleaned from them regularly. Wind can pile up all sorts of debris against its grill.

Know the name and type of your HVAC system before looking for a repair person. Write down the brand and the model and have all maintenance records on hand. In this way, you can be sure your repair person has all vital information.

TIP! Lubricate the oil ports on your condenser once each year. They generally have a rubber or metal cap on them.

If you have some problems with the HVAC system, check out your home before calling a contractor. Note which of your rooms are hot and which are cold. If you do this, it will be a great help to the future contractor, who will now be able to quickly locate the problem issue.

TIP! Boost energy efficiency by putting your condenser unit in the shade. The unit will have to do less work cooling this air.

Clean any debris that accumulates on an external condenser unit. Leaves, twigs and other troublesome objects can accumulate, particularly after very windy weather, and this will wreak havoc on your system. It may even overheat, which can ruin your system.

TIP! Be sure to have twice annual HVAC system checks. This should be done in the fall and again in the spring.

When selecting a location for an outdoor compressor, opt for a shady area, if possible. When the unit sucks in cooler air, then less work is required to cool it further which in turn boosts the units efficiency.

TIP! When the weather cools down, turn your outdoor condenser off. When the temperature drops beneath 60 degrees, it’s time to cut off the unit to prevent damage.

Be sure to place your outdoor unit in a shady spot to maximize efficiency. It will reduce the temperature of the air going into the unit, meaning that it will not have to work as hard to cool it.

TIP! Replace single pane windows by installing double pane, if possible. Having a double pane window helps limit your need for air conditioning during the summer months.

You need to have a contractor review your unit twice a 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. Even if everything seems okay, it doesn’t hurt to check things out.

TIP! A programmable thermostat is a simple way to help save money on air conditioning costs. Turning down the thermostat around 10 percent for 8 hours per day can give you a 10 percent savings using the programmable thermostat.

Hopefully, you now feel a little more confident in your HVAC knowledge. You don’t want a faulty HVAC since it can cost you lots of extra cash for maintenance and large bills. Make sure your HVAC system works properly by using these tips.
