TIP! 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.

Before you hire an HVAC contractor, have some sort of idea of the work that needs to be done. It’s hard for these contractors to give phone estimates without seeing the current system you have. It can be harder if you don’t know what’s wrong. Be sure to find this out ahead of time.

TIP! Turn off your outdoor condenser when it becomes cold out. Avoid damaging the unit by turning it off when the outdoor temperature drops below 60 degrees.

Keep your outdoor units free of debris when you are mowing the lawn. Now so the grass clippings are shot away from your unit. Also do this when blowing leaves or shoveling snow.

TIP! If the house is yours or you’re permitted to, replace the windows that are single pane with windows that are double pane. During the summer, the use of double-pane windows will help keep the cool air locked inside of the home.

If you have a fan condenser with oil ports, it needs to be lubricated every year. You can easily find the ports as they have a rubber or metal cap. Your oil should be an SAE 20. This particular oil is very lightweight and it only requires about 10 drops per port.

TIP! To help you pick a good HVAC contractor, be sure to research a number of different companies. Check with different references to determine the best one for your situation.

Have the HVAC system checked twice a year at the least. Most homeowners choose to have their unit inspected during the spring and the fall months. This helps prepare for the coming weather changes of summer and winter. Even if everything seems fine, check things out to find potential problems.

TIP! When you’re purchasing an HVAC system, make sure that you get a unit that is properly sized for your space. Buying a unit which is too big reduces efficiency.

When it gets cold outside, turn off the outdoor condensers. If temps go below 60 you run the risk of damaging a unit that remains on. Your system will work longer for you this way.

TIP! Consider how long a given HVAC company has been in existence before giving them your business. Companies that are established have been proven, and you can use their track record to to determine if they provide good service.

Little is more important than living in a comfy home than having an HVAC that works properly. But, if you are unfamiliar with the basics of these systems, it can break down prematurely. This information will help you decide what to do.
