Learn About Hvac With These Simple To Follow Tips

TIP! Understand what you want before talking to a contractor. This is necessary so that they can give you a quote before doing any work.

Heating and cooling are certainly essential to any home. Therefore, you must have a great HVAC system in place. If you do not properly care for it, you should expect terrible living conditions and expensive repairs. There are many useful tips and tricks within this article you can use to keep your home’s HVAC healthy.

TIP! When you are choosing a location for the outdoor compressor unit, it’s preferable to use a shaded area. When it draws in air for cooling, it will be more efficient because it will not need to work as hard to cool down the air.

Know what type of system you currently have before calling someone to fix it. Get information on the make and model, plus if you have information on the history of maintenance, that will help, too. This information will be helpful to any contractor you hire to repair it.

TIP! Have your heating and cooling system inspected twice a year. This should be done in Fall and Spring to prepare it for the extreme months.

Check the whole house before you call for help. Notice the temperature in each room. Are some cooler or hotter than others? The contractor can probably figure out and fix the problem easier.

TIP! If you are a home owner, replace whatever single pane windows you have with more efficient double-paned versions. Double pane windows can help minimize how much you use your air conditioner in the summer, because they keep cool air inside the home.

Before you ever begin looking for an HVAC contractor, first consider the entire job that you’ll need completed. This will make the quote process much easier. Being unable to explain what has been already done will make it even harder. It’s important to know this beforehand.

TIP! Don’t allow your home to become dangerously hot. Air conditioners really can only cool a home down about 20 degrees Fahrenheit within a reasonable amount of time.

Be sure to clean external condenser units regularly. You never know when things can pile up, especially after a windy or rainy storm, and that can throw a wrench in your system. It can cause the unit to overheat and break down.

TIP! To choose a HVAC contractor, it is important to check their reputations. Check with the BBB and look for reviews of potential companies online.

The coils and blades on the fans should be cleaned once a year. Be sure to turn the power off first; you don’t want anything to move. Take the grill off and pull the blades out to clean them.

TIP! Sometimes air conditioners will ice up. Freezes also occur in your drain line.

You must keep your HVAC systems oil ports lubricated annually. These are usually covered with rubber or metal caps. Pick a type of SAE 20 oil that is non-detergent and lightweight. Place 10 or less drops into every port to avoid overfilling.

TIP! Use online AC sizing calculators to figure out what size unit you need. If you purchase something that is too big, it won’t be cost effective to run.

Hopefully, this article has helped you understand more about your HVAC system. You must stay on top of things! Use the above tips to make sure it keeps working properly.
