Turn Yourself Into A Master Of HVAC

TIP! Before you hire an HVAC contractor, have some sort of idea of the work that needs to be done. A contractor will not be able to give you an accurate price without accurate information about your system.

No homeowner wants to come back to their house after a long day at work to find that the temperature is too hot or too cold. Your HVAC system helps you to stay comfortable in your home, so you want to make sure you treat it right. Read on to learn how to properly maintain your unit.

TIP! Clean the coils of your condenser fan each month. Be safe and turn off the power supply before working on your HVAC unit.

Before calling for help, know the system you have. Know what the manufacturer’s name is, which particular model you have and what’s gone on with the unit in the past. In this way, you can be sure your repair person has all vital information.

TIP! When you are cutting the grass, be sure not to cover your outdoor units with clippings. Now so the grass clippings are shot away from your unit.

If your HVAC is running into problems, check out each room in your house before calling for assistance. Note which rooms are hot and which are cold. That knowledge can help the technician figure out what is going on.

TIP! Make sure you have your HVAC system checked at least twice a year. The best time of year to have the system checked is right before the weather begins to change.

Know what you need before you hire 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. It can be harder if you don’t know what’s wrong. So, figure out this information before anything else.

TIP! When the weather starts to cool down, make sure you turn off outdoor condenser units. If the temperature outside is less than 60ºF, be sure to turn off the unit so that you don’t damage it.

If your condenser units are outisde, make sure any debris is cleaned from them regularly. After a wind or rain storm things may pile up, causing problems with your HVAC system. It can also cause it to overheat.

TIP! Replace single pane windows by installing double pane, if possible. Try to insulate your windows to prevent air from being lost.

During the fall, leaves can gather around your HVAC. When you see nearby trees shedding their leaves, clean the fan grill on your unit constantly. The air needs to be unobstructed into the fan, and any blockages create performance issues for the whole system.

Hvac System

TIP! Don’t ever let your home temperature get dangerously high. Air conditioners really can only cool a home down about 20 degrees Fahrenheit within a reasonable amount of time.

The tips above will help you manage your HVAC system. It’s never a good feeling to come home to a broken HVAC system. It gets even worse when you think about repair costs. The tips in this article will help you keep things manageable. Use them as necessary.
