Tips From The Pros For Your HVAC Needs At Home Or The Office

TIP! Before making that repair phone call, make sure you know the specifics about your particular system. Take a look at the system or the owner’s manual to find the name and model number.

If your HVAC system needs replacing, you might be confused by the different choices available. How can you determine the type of unit you need? How large must your HVAC system be? Which features? It can be hard to figure out what you need. If this sounds like you, continue reading to learn what you need to know about getting the perfect system for your home or business.

TIP! When you call an HVAC system for help, you need to be aware of what you need them to do before calling. A contractor will be hard pressed to provide you with an over-the-phone estimate if unfamiliar with your system.

What do you need done? Know this before calling a contractor. This is necessary so that they can give you a quote before doing any work. Being unable to explain what has been already done will make it even harder. Having this information handy will make the process much smoother.

Grass Clippings

TIP! Don’t let grass clippings pile up against your outdoor condenser. Aim your grass cuttings in a direction away from your unit.

Make sure that you do not cover your outdoor components with grass clippings when you are trimming the grass. Direct the grass clippings in a direction away from the HVAC unit. Make sure you move around the unit and blow the leaves away from it while blowing your leaves.

TIP! It is very important that your HVAC system is serviced two times a year. This should happen in the fall and the spring.

Leaves falling from trees can wreak havoc with your HVAC unit. Frequently clean the fan grill when trees are shedding leaves. 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! When it gets cold outside, the outdoor condenser unit should be turned off. This should be done when the temperature drops below 60ºF to avoid damage.

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. The air in the shade is cooler and can help save on energy costs.

TIP! If at all possible, install double-paned windows in your home instead of those with a single pane. Double pane windows can minimize the use of your air conditioner in hot weather since they keep the indoor air cooler.

You need to have a contractor review your unit twice a year. This should be checked often for debris and malfunctions. This type if preventative maintenance is highly necessary to ward off any expensive troubles from coming your way.

TIP! Save energy use and money by turning off the air conditioner if there is nobody home. Even though the house will get hotter, it won’t get too bad if the unit is off.

You may feel intimidated by the options available when shopping for an HVAC. Thankfully, these tips will help. Be sure to keep these tips in mind when making your selection to keep your home comfortable year round.
