Secrets The HVAC Experts Don’t Want You To Know

TIP! Before choosing an HVAC contractor, think of what you wish to have done. It will be hard for a contractor to give you a price estimate over the phone if they have not seen your current system.

Having an HVAC system is important, but you should know how to properly care for it as well. You may be looking for tips on how to make your HVAC system last for years to come. What follows is some great information to help you begin.

TIP! Keeping the outside condenser clean of debris and leaves will improve the system’s efficiency. Make sure your power is off before doing more than cleaning, such as working on the unit.

Know what type of system you currently have before calling someone to fix it. Write down the make, model, and any maintenance history. The contractor will likely need all of this information.

TIP! Clean your outdoor condensers often. Debris can pile up at rates that increase during rainy or windy weather, and this can foul up the inner workings of your system.

Help the outside condenser fan run efficiently by cleaning the coils and fan blades before the summer starts. Before you do clean the coils and fan blades, always take the precaution of turning off all power to the unit. Clean the outdoor condenser as well.

TIP! Make sure clippings don’t get on your outdoor units when your mowing your lawn. Aim the grass clippings in the other direction.

Make sure that you do not cover your outdoor components with grass clippings when you are trimming the grass. Try shooting the clippings away from it. This also applies when you blow leaves, so be very careful near your exterior HVAC units when you move debris.

TIP! When the leaves start to fall, the HVAC equipment can be harmed. The grill on the fan can become cluttered with debris, which will cause a serious operating deficiency.

In order to boost efficiency, place new outdoor units or move your current unit to a place which resides in the shade. If the air your machine draws in is already cooler, it will require less energy to regulate before it’s filtered into your home.

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. 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.

Be sure you have the HVAC unit in your home checked about two times every year. The normally recommended time for HVAC system inspections is once before the peak cooling season when it gets hot and you’ll be using your AC, and once before the peak heating season, during the cold months when you’re likely to be using your heat. A quick check is worth it to avoid problems down the road.

Hvac System

TIP! It is a good idea to replace single-paned windows with ones that have double panes. Double-pane windows keep inside air cooler, allowing you to reduce AC usage in the summertime.

As you know, it is essential to keep your HVAC system in good shape. Having an HVAC system repair from serious damage can cost serious cash. Following the tips above should help you keep the system in good working order, and find a suitable replacement if it becomes necessary.
