4 Common HVAC Myths

October 6, 2020 | Blog

There are many misconceptions when it comes to the heating, cooling and air quality of your home. Learning the truth to these myths can help prevent common AC repairs due to clogged air filters and faulty temperature readings. We’ve busted four common HVAC myths so you can keep your HVAC system in working order.

Myth 1: The bigger, the better

A bigger HVAC system is not always better. An HVAC unit that is too large for your home can cause more problems than you expect. If your AC unit is too big, it will short-cycle. Short-cycling is when your system continuously turns on and off, which can be costly to run and shortens the HVAC’s lifespan. A professional HVAC technician will help determine what size system will work just right for your home.

Myth 2: You only need to change your filters once a year

An air filter is a replaceable piece in your HVAC system that picks up the dust particles and other contaminants in your home. If you do not regularly replace the filter, it can become clogged with dust and grime. This will decrease your filter efficiency and reduce the air quality in your home. Determinants like the size of your home and how many pets you have are indicators for how often you should be replacing your air filter. Most AC companies recommend changing your filter every 2-3 months.

Myth 3: The location of your thermostat doesn’t matter

The placement of your thermostat is essential to get precise readings of your home’s temperature. Your thermostat is what tells your HVAC system to turn on and off, so if it’s located near direct sunlight, the thermostat may heat up and read the home as too hot. Placement by windows, doors and overhead vents in your home can also confuse your thermostat and lead to inaccurate readings and higher energy bills.

Myth 4: You don’t need to hire a professional if nothing is wrong

Your HVAC system requires routine maintenance to perform at its best year-round. Expert technicians at an HVAC service company are highly trained and know what to look for even to keep your system working smoothly. They may be able to spot an issue that you didn’t recognize was there and save you from costly repair.
