Myth: Your filter only needs to be changed once a year.
Fact: Though many people think this is true or they simply forget to change their filter except once a year, this is a big mistake! Your filter should be changed every 30 days while in use. Another thing to consider is if you have a lot of pets, a lot of loose fur and dander could be gathering around the house and you should consider changing your filter even more frequently. Changing your filter on a proper schedule will keep your system running much more efficiently.
Myth: Your HVAC system only needs maintenance if it’s broken.
Fact: It is very important to have regular maintenance on your HVAC system to ensure that the system is working properly and to prevent any large and expensive problems from occurring. Having your system checked regularly and well maintained by our HVAC professionals, will ensure that your system is running at peak efficiency and will save you from major and costly fixes down the road.
Myth: The bigger the HVAC system the better.
Fact: No, bigger is not always better when it comes to an HVAC system. If your system is too large for your home, it can actually be working much less efficiently. If the unit is too large for the space, it will also struggle to properly remove humidity. Having a professional help determine the right size HVAC unit for your home is vitally important.
Myth: Finding air leaks around your home is easy.
Fact: It seems like it’d be simple to spot an air leak around your home, but even the biggest leaks can be hard to find. An HVAC service technician can help find and properly seal leaks that waste energy and make your system inefficient. During regular maintenance of your system, your HVAC service technician can check for leaks and ensure your system is running properly and efficiently.
Myth: Adjusting the thermostat is the best way to heat or cool your home.
Fact: If your HVAC system is not working properly, your home may never reach the temperature that you set by your thermostat. Many things can affect whether your system may have a difficult time heating or cooling your home: if your HVAC system needs maintenance, if your home needs new insulation or if there are serious leaks. To ensure that your home’s HVAC system is able to heat and cool efficiently, schedule regular maintenance with an HVAC service professional and have them check for serious leaks.
