If you’ve been researching HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) systems, you’ve probably come across all sorts of information. Unfortunately, not all of that information is true. At Sun Kool Air Conditioning, Inc, we believe in separating facts from fiction. In this piece, we will debunk a few common HVAC myths that could be costing you comfort and high energy bills.
Myth 1: The Bigger, The Better?
The idea that a larger HVAC system will heat and cool your home more efficiently is one of the most common misconceptions. In reality, an overly large system might turn on and off more often, increasing energy consumption and wearing down the components quicker. A professional HVAC technician can help you calculate the appropriate system size for your home to ensure efficiency and comfort.
Myth 2: Thermostat Location Doesn’t Matter
Think the location of your thermostat doesn’t make a difference? Think again. Placing your thermostat near windows, doors, or in direct sunlight can cause inaccurate readings, leading your system to work harder than it needs to. A trained team will know the perfect spot to place your thermostat for accurate readings.
Myth 3: You Only Need to Change Your Filter Once a Year
Last on our list but certainly not least, is the myth that your HVAC filter only needs to be changed once a year. In reality, filters should be checked at least once a month, especially during peak usage periods. A clogged filter can strain your system and reduce overall performance.
When it comes to your comfort, don’t let misconceptions steer you in the wrong direction. Remember, the most trusted source of information about HVAC systems is a professional HVAC team. We at Sun Kool Air Conditioning, Inc., are always here to help debunk any HVAC myths and ensure your system is operating at peak efficiency.
