What You Must Know About HVAC Purchases

TIP! Don’t hire a contractor until you know a little about what you are facing. This will make the quote process much easier.

Your HVAC system will help you keep your home comfy all year. When such a system stops working or becomes inefficient, they often have to be replaced. As with other purchases for your home, buying an HVAC system requires that you compare what’s available with your own requirements and expectations of an HVAC system. Check out the tips below.

TIP! Before the summer you should clean out your condenser fan’s blades and coils. Before you clean the surface, be sure to turn off the power.

Before choosing a HVAC company find out what the company offers. This is necessary so that they can give you a quote before doing any work. If you are unable to explain the work that needs to be taken care of, the conversation will be even less fruitful. So be aware of this information ahead of time.

Clean your outdoor condensers often. Wind can pile up all sorts of debris against its grill. It can also cause it to overheat.

TIP! The HVAC unit in your home can become damaged from falling leaves. When the leaves fall from nearby trees, clean the grill of your fan often.

Clean the coils on the condenser fan from time to time. Before you get started, cut the power. Then take off the grill, take the blades out, and gently clean them.

TIP! For maximum efficiency, place outdoor units in a shady spot. When the air conditioner pulls in cooler air, it won’t have to do much more to cool it and that will save you a lot of money on energy bills.

If the fan condenser on your unit has ports for oil, make sure you lubricate it once a year. These ports are often covered by a rubber or metal cap. Your oil should be an SAE 20. This particular oil is very lightweight and it only requires about 10 drops per port.

TIP! Your HVAC unit requires regular maintenance at least two times per each year. The ideal thing to do would be to have it checked out in the fall and spring so you’re able to figure out if everything is ready for the cold and hot months.

Look for shade when placing a compressor outdoors. If the unit is taking in cooler air, the efficiency will be boosted since it will not need to work as hard.

TIP! When it gets cold outside, it is necessary to turn off outdoor condenser units. If temps go below 60 you run the risk of damaging a unit that remains on.

Did you know an AC unit can freeze? The drain line also occasionally freezes, which can be misdiagnosed as a plumbing leak. Change your thermostat in situations like this. The fan setting can help melt some of the ice, but you should still call a professional to check your unit out.

TIP! Have a smart thermostat installed. It changes the temperature so the system isn’t in use when it’s cooler outside or no one is home.

Having an HVAC system can be a great investment, especially if it keeps your home comfortable year round. If you have to upgrade, keep these tips handy. The tips here can help you make a wise choice in purchasing and installing a system that serves you well.
