HVAC Can Be Easy With This Guide

TIP! Be sure to regularly clean debris from external condenser units. You never know when things can pile up, especially after a windy or rainy storm, and that can throw a wrench in your system.

If you need a new HVAC unit, the sheer number of choices out there can be confusing. How do you figure out what system is right for your home. What size? What features does it need? With new items constantly coming to market, shopping for one can be frustrating. To avoid becoming overwhelmed, check out the advice below.

TIP! If you can choose the place where your outdoor compressor goes, pick a spot with lots of shade. The cooler the air that the unit is able to access, the less work it has to perform.

Know the name and type of your HVAC system before looking for a repair person. Take a look at the system or the owner’s manual to find the name and model number. This will facilitate the process when your contractor asks for this information.

TIP! As the temperature outside drops, remember to turn off your outdoor condenser unit. Avoid damaging the unit by turning it off when the outdoor temperature drops below 60 degrees.

If you have some problems with the HVAC system, check out your home before calling a contractor. Know what part of the house is cold and which is hot. That way, the contractor will have an easier time diagnosing the problem and repairing it fast.

TIP! Install a thermostat you can program to save money on cooling your home. If you adjust it to keep the house a little warmer or a little cooler during the time you are sleeping, you may see your energy bill go down by as much as ten percent.

Make certain that you clean your condenser when the weather begins to warm. First, make sure the power is off to ensure nothing moves while you are working. Secondly, pop the grill off, take the blades off and clean them as well as the actual unit.

TIP! Before you go out there and hire an HVAC contractor, find out the length of time they’ve been in the industry. Firms that have been in business for a long time are easier to assess.

If the fan condenser on your unit has ports for oil, make sure you lubricate it once a year. You will notice these ports have a rubber or metal cap covering them. You should select an SAE 20 oil since it is lightweight and does not contain detergent. Be sure to use just 10 drops or so, or your system may overfill.

TIP! Ask people that you know and trust for contractor recommendations. People that have gotten great work done in the past generally love to share the information they know about it.

If you need to decide the best place to put your outdoor compressor unit, consider putting it in a location that is in the shade. If you have a unit taking in air that’s cooler, it won’t have to work so hard to cool air that it sends to your home.

TIP! Check around and get a number of quotes prior to hiring a contractor. By calling around and asking a few different contractors, you can save a ton of money.

Choosing an HVAC system that is new can be confusing and may feel overwhelming to you. The tips you have just read will aid you in this process. Refer to these tips as you choose your HVAC system.
