HVAC Getting You Down? These Tips Will Help

TIP! What system do you have? You need this information to tell your contractor. Write down the brand and the model and have all maintenance records on hand.

Most people are not happy when their HVAC unit breaks during a cold winter or hot summer day. If you want to find the right person for the job to either install your new system or repair your existing unit you will need to learn as much as you can on the topic. Read this article to learn more.

TIP! If you are having issues with your HVAC, do a tour of your house before you call in help. Determine which rooms are hotter or colder than they should be.

Think about what improvements you want made before picking an HVAC contractor. If you can’t describe the problem, you may not get an accurate quote. If you can’t explain changes you’ve made, the process will be even more difficult. So be aware of this information ahead of time.

Hvac System

TIP! If you have condenser units outside your home, be sure to clean out the debris from them often. Debris can pile up after a storm, bringing potential damage with it.

If there are condenser units as part of your HVAC system, clean them often as they tend to have lots of debris. Your HVAC system may run into problems after storms if it is surrounded by debris. It can overheat, leading to disaster within your system.

TIP! Be sure to clean the fan blades and coils of the condenser fan. Before you begin cleaning the unit, make sure that it is unplugged.

Make certain that you clean your condenser when the weather begins to warm. Start by turning off the power to avoid having anything move when you work on it. Next, pop off the grill, pull out the blades and start cleaning them and the unit itself off gently.

TIP! Once it gets cold outside, you should turn off the outdoor condenser unit. When the temperature drops beneath 60 degrees, it’s time to cut off the unit to prevent damage.

Lubricate your fan condenser if it has oil ports. You’ll find these ports are covered with a metal or rubber cap. Put about ten drops or less of a good non-detergent SAE 20 oil into each port.

TIP! If possible, your single pane windows should be replaced with double-paned ones. In warmer months, these windows will help to maintain the cooler inside temperature.

If the current location of your HVAC unit outside isn’t working, try having it moved to an area with more shade. 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! One great way to save some cash when you’re working on keeping a home cool is to install a thermostat that’s programmable. Such thermostats help you save around ten percent when it comes to energy costs.

Having to use a HVAC contractor might be daunting if you don’t have proper information. But, with the right tips, you will know how to find a professional you can trust. Now, you should feel much more empowered about dealing with issues when they arise.
