Preparation Is Key When It Comes To HVAC

TIP! Always make sure you are up-to-date about your HVAC unit. It is important to understand what model it is and which brand it is.

There isn’t a lot that’s more frustrating than working on HVAC problems when it’s really hot or cold outside. The more you know on this subject, the easier it will be to find an expert to help you. Read on to learn more.

TIP! Before choosing a HVAC company find out what the company offers. This will make the quote process much easier.

Prior to putting in a service call on your HVAC, be able to identify it. Write down the make, model, and any maintenance history. Your contractor will appreciate this information.

TIP! Clean the debris from outside units often. You don’t know when things are going to pile up, like right after it’s windy or rains, and that can ruin your system.

If problems arise with the HVAC system, check the entire house before contacting someone to come for repairs. Note which rooms are hot and which are cold. This information will help the contractor determine where the problem is and how to fix it.

TIP! If trees are losing leaves around your home, this can impact your HVAC unit. The grill on the fan can become cluttered with debris, which will cause a serious operating deficiency.

Before selecting a HVAC repairman, know what you need done. If you can’t describe the problem, you may not get an accurate quote. Being unable to explain what has been already done will make it even harder. It’s a good idea to learn this information in advance.

TIP! If there are oil ports on your fan condenser, lubricate it annually. These ports are typically covered with caps made of metal or rubber.

Clean the condenser coils and fan at the beginning of the year to help the unit run efficiently. Shut off power before working or cleaning your system. Remove leaves and debris from the outside condenser.

TIP! Be sure to place your outdoor unit in a shady spot to maximize efficiency. This will help you save on your energy bill.

In order for your new unit to be as efficient as possible, or to make older units more efficient, make sure it’s put in a shaded area. If your air conditioner is able to constantly suck in cool air, it won’t have to work overtime to cool your space, which can in turn save you money on your electricity bills.

TIP! If you want to ensure you choose a trustworthy HVAC contractor, invest a little time in researching a few different companies, checking out their reputations. It is always wise to check their status with the BBB.

Have your HVAC serviced at least yearly. The best times to have the system checked is spring and fall, so you are sure everything is running at peak performance before the heating and cooling seasons. Although there might not be any noticeable issues, it is important to provide regular upkeep to prevent bad things from happening.

TIP! Icing up is common in air conditioners. Freezes also occur in your drain line.

The idea of having to hire an HVAC professional may seem daunting if you don’t have the right knowledge. With proper knowledge, the process can be made simpler. Ideally, you now know what to do to keep your unit running well.
