If you need a new HVAC unit, the sheer number of choices out there can be confusing. How can you determine the type of unit you need? What size should you consider? Do you know which features it needs? It can be hard to figure out what you need. To avoid becoming overwhelmed, check out the advice below.
Know what type of system you currently have before calling someone to fix it. Find out the brand and model and, if possible, dig out the maintenance history. This will facilitate the process when your contractor asks for this information.
If your HVAC is running into problems, check out each room in your house before calling for assistance. Pay attention to which areas of the house are warm and which ones are cool. The contractor can probably figure out and fix the problem easier.
Clean the condenser coils and fan at the beginning of the year to help the unit run efficiently. The power to the unit should be removed before you begin any maintenance, even cleaning. Clean off any leaves or debris from your external condenser unit.
Clean the debris off your outdoor condenser unit. Particularly after bad weather, you should inspect your unit. Debris like this can cause it to overheat, which could be detrimental to your system.
Clean the fan blades and coils on the condenser fan every spring. First, turn the power off so nothing moves when you’re working with it. Then remove the grill, remove the blades and clean it from top to bottom gently.
Choosing an HVAC system that is new can be confusing and may feel overwhelming to you. That decision just became a little bit easier though, now that you have the advice of experts in hand. Take the time to review these tips again, and use them when you are making your final selection so that your home becomes comfortable and enjoyable all year round.
