5 Myths About HVAC Services
August 14th, 2020 by cverdone
HVAC systems are complex. They can include furnaces, air-conditioners, ventilators, air handlers, pumps, and ductwork to start. They can also include a lot of extras like air-purifiers and air filtration systems. It’s vital to have them serviced and to change their filters often to keep them running. There are a lot of common misconceptions about HVAC systems and their maintenance. We’re going to give you the facts about five of the most common myths about HVAC systems.
Myth: The larger the HVAC system, the better
This is not true. You need an HVAC system that fits the size of your home for it to remove humidity and heat. A larger HVAC system may not be able to treat the air. It will help if a professional HVAC installer looks to see what size system will work best for your home. Do this before deciding which one to install.
Myth: The best way to heat or cool your home is to adjust the thermostat
The thermostat is only part of the equation. It’s important to remember that an HVAC system must be functioning to cool or heat. Also, make sure your home has proper insulation. It is something that you can often overlook. If your HVAC system isn’t filtering the air, has leaks, or needs repairs, the thermostat will not work.
Myth: You only need to change your filter yearly
This myth can damage your HVAC system, especially if you have pets. Only changing the filter once a year causes your HVAC system to not be efficient. This can cause potential damage. We recommend changing your filter at least once a month.
Myth: You HVAC system only needs maintenance when it’s broken
Myth: Leaks are easy to find.
