Knowledge Is Power, And These HVAC Tips Are Priceless

TIP! Know what type of system you currently have before calling someone to fix it. Find out the brand and model and, if possible, dig out the maintenance history.

You may be confused by all the choices you see when shopping for an HVAC system. How do you know what type of system to buy? What size should you consider? What sort of features does it have? With new items constantly coming to market, shopping for one can be frustrating. If this sounds like you, continue reading to learn what you need to know about getting the perfect system for your home or business.

TIP! Clean the debris off your outdoor condenser unit. After a wind or rain storm things may pile up, causing problems with your HVAC system.

Before you start calling to find someone to fix your unit, make sure you know the type of system that is installed. Look for the model and brand number. This will facilitate the process when your contractor asks for this information.

TIP! Be sure to clean the fan blades and coils of the condenser fan. Before you do anything, however, turn the power off.

Know what you need before you hire a contractor. It will be hard for a contractor to give you a price estimate over the phone if they have not seen your current system. Getting an estimate will be even more difficult if you cannot adequately describe the problem. So, figure out this information before anything else.

TIP! Try to prevent debris from getting in your HVAC unit. Make sure the unit’s fan grill is cleaned frequently when the leaves begin to fall.

Outdoor condenser units need to be cleaned regularly. Leaves, twigs and other troublesome objects can accumulate, particularly after very windy weather, and this will wreak havoc on your system. Overheating may be the result if you don’t.

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.

When you cut the grass, make sure your mower isn’t tossing clippings toward your outdoor units. Get the grass shot away from your unit. Do the same when blowing snow or leaves.

TIP! If at all possible, install double-paned windows in your home instead of those with a single pane. To keep your home cool, investing in double pane windows is a must.

Leaves and debris can damage your system. Make sure you clean out your fan grill often once nearby trees start shedding their leaves. The fan needs to have an unobstructed path for air to enter the unit, and if it becomes blocked, you will end up with many headaches with the unit.

TIP! Regularly having your HVAC system serviced can help keep your heating and cooling bills down. During the visit, the contractor will oil parts, inspect the motor and the freon levels.

Sometimes, you may be confused when shopping for an HVAC system. The tips you just read will help you with that and much more. Go over this advice as needed to make sure that you’ve got everything down. You’ll be able to make sure that your system stays working as it should.
