In this blog post, we aim to debunk some of the most common myths and provide accurate information to help you better understand and care for your HVAC system.

Myth #1: Bigger is Always Better

One common myth is that a larger HVAC system will automatically perform better and provide more efficient cooling or heating. The truth is that an oversized system can actually waste energy and fail to properly dehumidify the air. The key is to have a system that is correctly sized for your home or business, taking into account factors such as square footage, insulation, and climate.

Myth #2: Closing Vents Saves Energy

Many people believe that closing vents in unused rooms can help save energy and reduce costs. However, this practice can actually cause imbalances in your system, leading to inefficient operation and potential damage. Your HVAC system is designed to work with a specific amount of airflow, and closing vents disrupts this balance.

Myth #3: Air Filters Don’t Need Regular Replacement

  • Regularly replacing or cleaning your air filters is crucial for maintaining the efficiency and longevity of your HVAC system.
  • Dirty filters restrict airflow, causing the system to work harder and potentially leading to breakdowns or higher energy bills.
  • Most manufacturers recommend changing filters every 1-3 months, depending on usage and the type of filter.
