Debunking Common HVAC Myths – The Truth from All Makes

As a family-owned business that has been providing top-notch heating and cooling solutions since 1949, All Makes Heating and Air Conditioning Corp understands the importance of addressing widespread myths surrounding HVAC systems. In this blog post, we’ll debunk some of the most common misconceptions to help you make informed decisions about your home’s comfort.

Myth #1: Bigger is Always Better

Many homeowners believe that investing in the largest HVAC system available will ensure optimal performance and efficiency. However, this is a fallacy. An oversized system will cycle on and off more frequently, leading to increased wear and tear, and potential moisture issues. A properly sized unit, tailored to your home’s specific needs, will not only provide better comfort but also save you money on energy bills.

Myth #2: Closing Vents Saves Energy

  • Contrary to popular belief, closing vents in unused rooms does not conserve energy.
  • It can actually increase the workload on your system, leading to inefficient operation and potential damage.
  • For optimal efficiency, keep all vents open and adjust the thermostat as needed.

Myth #3: Replacing Air Filters is Unnecessary

Neglecting to replace your HVAC system’s air filters can have detrimental effects on indoor air quality and energy efficiency. Clogged filters restrict airflow, causing your system to work harder and potentially leading to costly repairs or replacements. To maintain peak performance and healthy indoor air, follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for regular filter changes.
