HVAC Tips You Can’t Master The Topic Without

TIP! Be aware of the type of system that is installed in your home prior to calling a contractor to fix it. Get information on the make and model, plus if you have information on the history of maintenance, that will help, too.

The HVAC system you have is important to your home, so you can let it go bad. You may not know a lot of about this type of unit. The following article has helpful advice for you.

TIP! Your outside condenser fan can be helped to run better by you cleaning the fan blades and coils prior to summer starting up. Be safe and turn off the power supply before working on your HVAC unit.

Before you call someone to help you fix your system, be sure to know what sort of system you have in place. Know the brand name and model number. It is also helpful to have the maintenance history. Then, you’ll be ready to tell the contractor what they need to know.

TIP! If the condenser for your HVAC system is located outside, make sure you clear away any debris that might settle in or around it. Leaves, twigs and other troublesome objects can accumulate, particularly after very windy weather, and this will wreak havoc on your system.

Make a circuit around your home before calling for help with your HVAC. Pay attention to which areas of the house are warm and which ones are cool. This will help the repairman determine what the problem is.

TIP! Cover your unit when you are mowing the lawn. When you work with your lawn mower, make sure it spits the grass to the side opposite of your unit.

Prior to choosing an HVAC customer, try to have an idea of what you want done. A contractor will not be able to give you an accurate price without accurate information about your system. It will be more difficult for him to assist you over the phone without the information readily available. Having this information handy will make the process much smoother.

TIP! If you are choosing where to place your outdoor compressor device, try to put it in a place where there is plenty of shade. In this way, it will be cooling air that is already somewhat cooled.

It’s a good idea to put your outdoor compressor in a shady area. 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! Your HVAC system should be checked a few times a year. The best time of year to have the system checked is right before the weather begins to change.

Get your HVAC unit serviced two times per year. This should be done in the fall and again in the spring. Even if you can’t see anything wrong, checking it may help you locate and repair some possible issues.

TIP! When it gets cold outside, it is necessary to turn off outdoor condenser units. If temps go below 60 you run the risk of damaging a unit that remains on.

Condenser units for the outdoors should be shut off when it starts to get cold outside. When the temperature drops beneath 60 degrees, it’s time to cut off the unit to prevent damage. You will save in repair bills and increase the efficiency of your system.

TIP! A programmable thermostat can help you save money on your air conditioning bill. It will help save on your heating and cooling costs by turning itself down at certain times.

It should now be apparent that you can prevent HVAC disasters with proper maintenance. As with other household repairs, HVAC repairs can be very expensive. Prevent this from occurring by using these tips.
