There are many industries that involve myths based on misconceptions and poor experiences that spread among consumers like wildfire. The HVAC industry is no exception, and though there are myths that could fill books, we at Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning would like to share the top common HVAC myths floating around.
Busting Heating & Cooling Myths
Myth: Filters only need to be changed once a year.
Fact: Whether they believe this to be true or simply forget, the filter being changed once a year is bad. You will want to change your filter every 30-45 days while you’re using your HVAC system. You may want to consider changing your filter even more regularly if you have a lot of pets, and therefore a lot of dander and fur around the house.
Myth: The biggest HVAC system is always the best.
Fact: When it comes to an HVAC system, bigger is not always better. It can be much less efficient if your system is too large for your home. Additionally, to properly remove humidity is also a struggle. Make sure to have a professional help determine the right size HVAC unit for your home.
Myth: Unless it’s broken, you don’t need professional services.
Fact: Before you see the mechanic, you don’t want to wait until it’s broken down on the side of the road when it comes to your car. For regular checkups, you go to the mechanic, and the same goes for your HVAC system. To ensure that your system is working properly and to prevent any large and expensive problems before they happen, it is crucial to have regular maintenance on your HVAC system. You’ll save major and costly headaches down the road by having it regularly checked and well maintained by an HVAC service technician.
Myth: Air leaks are easy to find around your home.
Fact: Even the biggest leaks can be hard to find, though it seems like it’d be simple to spot an air leak around your home. The leaks that waste energy and make your system inefficient can be found and properly sealed by an HVAC service technician. You can also have them check for leaks when you hire an HVAC service technician for regular maintenance of your system, which will ensure your system is running properly and efficiently.
Myth: Turning up the thermostat is the best way to heat or cool your home.
Fact: Your home may actually never reach that temperature if your HVAC system is not working the way it should while the thermostat controls the temperature setting. The system will have a very difficult time heating and cooling your home if your home needs new insulation or there are serious leaks, if your HVAC system needs maintenance. It may never get to that setting although you’ve set your thermostat to one temperature. Schedule regular maintenance with an HVAC service professional and have them check for serious leaks to ensure that your home’s HVAC system is able to heat and cool efficiently.
