This Great HVAC Advice Should Not Be Missed!

TIP! Think about what improvements you want made before picking an HVAC contractor. It’s hard to get an estimate since they haven’t look at your system.

One important thing about a home is how well it gets cooled or heated. That is why it is important to keep your HVAC system healthy. Maintenance is key. Below you’ll get a lot of great advice to help you keep the HVAC system you own working great for a long time.

TIP! If you have outside condenser units, make sure to regularly clean the debris that builds up. Debris can pile up after a storm, bringing potential damage with it.

Know the name and type of your HVAC system before looking for a repair person. Take a look at the system or the owner’s manual to find the name and model number. This will ensure that you can give your new contractor all the information they need.

TIP! Make sure your condenser fan is in good working order by wiping down the fan blades and the coils. First, make sure the power is off to ensure nothing moves while you are working.

Understand what you want before talking to a contractor. It is going to be hard to get a price estimate on the phone if the current system isn’t something they’ve seen. Getting an estimate will be even more difficult if you cannot adequately describe the problem. You need to know this before you begin.

Outside Condenser

TIP! If you can choose the place where your outdoor compressor goes, pick a spot with lots of shade. In this way, it will be cooling air that is already somewhat cooled.

Keep outside condenser fans running smoothly by cleaning fan blades and coils before the summer begins. Always shut the power off before doing any work or cleaning on the unit. In addition, always remove all debris such as leaves from the outside condenser unit.

TIP! During cold weather , be sure to turn off outdoor condenser units. If the temperature drops to under 60 degrees, you risk damage to the unit if you leave it on.

Clean the debris on your condenser units. Leaves, twigs and other troublesome objects can accumulate, particularly after very windy weather, and this will wreak havoc on your system. It may begin to overheat, causing massive damage.

TIP! Replace single pane windows by installing double pane, if possible. During the summer, the use of double-pane windows will help keep the cool air locked inside of the home.

Your HVAC unit may suffer when trees start to lose their leaves. When the leaves fall from nearby trees, clean the grill of your fan often. The fan should have a clear path for air to come in. If it is blocked, your system will suffer.

TIP! A programmable thermostat can really help you out when it comes to your power bills. Programmable thermostats can reduce your power HVAC energy costs by as much as ten percent, just by dialing back your thermostat ten or fifteen percent up to eight daily hours.

Now you know just how to get a quality HVAC system. If you ignore the system and the required maintenance, then it will fail when you need it the most. Use what you’ve learned here to keep things working right so you don’t get home and find out there’s a disaster on your hands.
