What You Must Know About HVAC Purchases

TIP! Before you hire an HVAC contractor, have some sort of idea of the work that needs to be done. Providing you with an accurate estimate over the telephone may be difficult to impossible is they can’t see the system you have.

Having an HVAC system in good working order can be enjoyable in the home. Not being affected by the extreme hot or cold temperatures from the outside is really great. However, if your system fails you can find yourself in a nightmare. Learning about your HVAC system begins with the tips below.

TIP! Don’t let grass clippings pile up against your outdoor condenser. When you work with your lawn mower, make sure it spits the grass to the side opposite of your unit.

Check the whole house before you call for help. Pay attention to which areas of the house are warm and which ones are cool. That way, the contractor will have an easier time diagnosing the problem and repairing it fast.

TIP! When the trees are losing their leaves, your HVAC unit can suffer. During this time of year, check and clear off the fan grill on your unit on a regular basis.

Clean your fan blades and coils each spring to ensure that your condenser fan operates at it’s best. Prior to working on or cleaning the unit, be sure to turn off the power. Remove leaves and debris from the outside condenser.

TIP! When selecting the spot to put the outdoor compressor for your unit, choose somewhere that gets plenty of shade. The cooler air entering the unit will require less work to get to the proper temperature.

If the fan on your condenser includes oil ports, they must be lubricated annually. You will notice these ports have a rubber or metal cap covering them. Buy an SAE 20 product that is lightweight, and then put no more than ten drops into the ports.

TIP! Your HVAC unit requires regular maintenance at least two times per each year. The best times to have the system checked is spring and fall, so you are sure everything is running at peak performance before the heating and cooling seasons.

Update the windows in your home to double-paned if you own it. Double pane windows will allow you to use less air during the summer because cooler air will stay in your house. Likewise, in the winter more hot air stays inside during the cold season.

TIP! Condenser units for the outdoors should be shut off when it starts to get cold outside. This means that you should turn it off to prevent damage if the weather falls under 60 degrees Farenheit.

One way to save some money with A/C is by having a programmable thermostat installed. This will help you to keep the temperature at optimal levels. Some programmable thermostats can even be controlled from a PC or other device.

TIP! Regularly having your HVAC system serviced can help keep your heating and cooling bills down. The contractor should oil the parts that move and check the motor and freon levels.

In order to keep energy costs down, make sure heating and cooling systems are services at least once per year. The contractor should oil the parts that move and check the motor and freon levels. These things will boost the performance of your system.

TIP! Keep your air conditioner off when people aren’t home to save you money. Even though the house will get hotter, it won’t get too bad if the unit is off.

Now you know how to ensure your HVAC is working smoothly. Without routine maintenance, disaster is inevitable. Hopefully, the tips above will help you remain happy with your HVAC system for years to come.
