You might not pay attention to your HVAC system in the home until it starts malfunctioning. Of course then it becomes extremely important to fix. It can be hard to find a good HVAC contractor. Simply continue reading to learn more about how to go about doing this.

TIP! Clean your condenser’s fan blades and coils come spring. Always make sure you shut off the power before you do any work on the unit other than superficial cleaning.

Always make sure you are up-to-date about your HVAC unit. Take a look at the system or the owner’s manual to find the name and model number. This will let you know that you’re able to give the contractor the information that can help them.

TIP! The coils and blades on the fans should be cleaned once a year. Turn it off first so you don’t get hurt or break something.

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. If you do not know what you want, the process can become tedious, especially over the phone. Be sure to find this out ahead of time.

TIP! Look for shade when placing a compressor outdoors. This will limit the work that it has to do.

Clean the debris from outside units often. You don’t know the amount of stuff that can pile up right after heavy winds or a storm. Debris like this can cause it to overheat, which could be detrimental to your system.

TIP! When it gets cold outside, it is necessary 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.

Cover your unit when you are mowing the lawn. Direct the grass clippings in a direction away from the HVAC unit. When blowing leaves, do the same. Always take care when passing your HVAC units while moving leaves, grass or other debris.

TIP! It is always a good idea to swap out single pane windows for double pane ones. Having a double pane window helps limit your need for air conditioning during the summer months.

If the current location of your HVAC unit outside isn’t working, try having it moved to an area with more shade. It will reduce the temperature of the air going into the unit, meaning that it will not have to work as hard to cool it.

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.

You have now increased your knowledge regarding HVAC systems. If your current systems need to be repaired or even replaced, you now have the knowledge of what you should be looking for and, also, what you need to avoid. These tips will help you through it all.
