Save Cash By Getting Your HVAC Work Done The Right Way

TIP! When you call an HVAC system for help, you need to be aware of what you need them to do before calling. You can’t get a decent estimate over a telephone, so disregard those numbers and wait until they view your system.

Nothing is worse than your HVAC systems going out on a bitterly cold day or a sweltering hot day. If you want to find the right person for the job to either install your new system or repair your existing unit you will need to learn as much as you can on the topic. Keep reading to start doing just that.

TIP! When selecting a location for an outdoor compressor, opt for a shady area, if possible. If the unit is taking in cooler air, the efficiency will be boosted since it will not need to work as hard.

Make a circuit around your home before calling for help with your HVAC. Figure out which rooms are hot and cold. You can then relay this information to the technician so that they can more easily figure out what the problem is.

TIP! 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. It will help you save on your energy bill when you do this.

Before choosing a HVAC company find out what the company offers. You can’t get a decent estimate over a telephone, so disregard those numbers and wait until they view your system. If you can’t explain changes you’ve made, the process will be even more difficult. Be sure to find this out ahead of time.

TIP! Have your HVAC serviced at least yearly. Checks in the spring as well as in autumn are the best.

Clean your fan and coils when the weather begins to warm. Before you clean the unit, be sure to turn off the power. Clean the outside of your condenser unit regularly.

TIP! Equipping your home with a programmable thermostat can be an excellent way to cut utility costs. Turning down the thermostat around 10 percent for 8 hours per day can give you a 10 percent savings using the programmable thermostat.

Your HVAC system could suffer when trees begin dropping their leaves. When you see nearby trees shedding their leaves, clean the fan grill on your unit constantly. You can head off future problems that can be caused by blockages by making sure there is a free flow of air to your fan.

TIP! To help keep your energy costs down, have your heating and cooling system serviced at least once a year. This inspection will ensure that your unit is working efficiently, including a freon level and motor check, and oiling moving parts.

If you have a fan condenser with oil ports, it needs to be lubricated every year. You will see rubber or metal caps covering the ports. Use SAE 20 oil that is lightweight and detergent free, and put ten drops or fewer into each one. Make sure not to overfill them.

TIP! If nobody is home, turn off the air conditioner to save money. You may want to turn your unit off if your house will not become extremely hot or cold.

It can be hard to find a professional if you don’t have the advice. This process does not have to be scary. This article should have helped you feel more comfortable when it comes to your HVAC system.
