One of the most popular air conditioning myths is that a bigger air conditioning unit will produce the best results for your home. For some homeowners this may indeed be true. Sometimes builders do not have an adequately sized air conditioning unit installed during the building process. If this is the case for your home then a larger unit will help. For many people though their air conditioning unit is actually the correct size but it is just not functioning properly. Some maintenance and repairs will help your unit give you better results.

Do Ceiling Fans Reduce Temperature to Help Cool a Room?
The next myth we want to address is about fans. People think that fans actually decrease the temperature inside of your home. The truth about fans is that they do not actually reduce the temperature in your home. By moving the air around in your room it simply makes it FEEL cooler in your room. If you have fans in your home turning them on when you are in the room will indeed help make you feel cooler. When you leave the room we recommend turning the fan off though so it’s not actually lowering the temperature at all.
Many people will tell you that you should turn your thermostat up high when you are gone and then turn it down extremely low when you get home so that your home will cool quickly. Your air conditioner will indeed get your home nice and cool but it can only work so quickly. Turning it down to an extremely low temperature just makes your unit work longer to get it to the temperature that you set your thermostat to. We recommend that you simply use a programmable thermostat to help you lower and raise your temperature according to when you will be in your home and when you will be gone.
