Prior to choosing an HVAC customer, try to have an idea of what you want done. 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. Be sure to find this out ahead of time.

TIP! Your outdoor HVAC units might suffer when your trees lose leaves. Make certain you are cleaning the fan grill often if trees nearby have leaves that are falling.

Clean the fan blades and coils prior to summertime. If you are doing more than a light surface cleaning, make sure that the power is shut off to the HVAC unit. Additionally, it’s important to clear out leaves and other debris from the outside condenser unit.

TIP! Lubricate your condenser yearly if it has oil ports. A rubber or metal cap is typically placed over such ports.

Clean the fan blades and coils in your condenser each spring. Before you do anything, however, turn the power off. Pull out each of the blades and clean them one by one.

TIP! Turn off outdoor condenser units when weather turns cold. If temps go below 60 you run the risk of damaging a unit that remains on.

HVAC units may suffer when leaves are falling off the trees. When you see nearby trees shedding their leaves, clean the fan grill on your unit constantly. Otherwise, the unit will have to work unnecessarily hard.

TIP! To save money and be more comfortable in your home, install double-paned windows instead of single pane. You can reduce your energy costs from energy leaking out through your windows by installing window that are double-paned.

You must keep your HVAC systems oil ports lubricated annually. Such ports tend to have coverings made of rubber or metal. Your oil should be an SAE 20. This particular oil is very lightweight and it only requires about 10 drops per port.

TIP! Make use of a thermostat when you are installing an HVAC. It will help save on your heating and cooling costs by turning itself down at certain times.

Hiring a contractor is a daunting task if you don’t know much about the field. However, the right knowledge makes the process less daunting. Hopefully you are now prepared to tackle any issue that may come up with your HVAC system.
