Unveiling the Truth Behind HVAC Myths

When it comes to heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, there are numerous myths and misconceptions that circulate. At Carden Heating & Cooling, we are committed to providing our clients with accurate information and debunking these myths. In this blog post, we tackle some of the most common HVAC myths.

Myth 1: Closing vents saves energy

Many homeowners believe that closing vents in unused rooms can save energy. However, this is a myth. HVAC systems are designed to distribute air evenly throughout the house, and closing vents can actually put unnecessary strain on the system, leading to higher energy bills and potential system damage.

Myth 2: Bigger is always better for HVAC units

It’s a common misconception that larger HVAC units are more efficient. In reality, properly sized units are the key to energy efficiency and cost savings. An oversized unit will cycle on and off more frequently, leading to increased wear and tear, higher energy costs, and uneven temperature distribution.

Myth 3: HVAC maintenance is unnecessary

  • Regular maintenance is crucial for the longevity and efficiency of your HVAC system.
  • Neglecting maintenance can lead to higher energy bills, decreased indoor air quality, and potential system breakdowns.
  • At Carden Heating & Cooling, we recommend annual tune-ups and inspections to ensure your system is operating at optimal performance.

Myth 4: Air conditioning causes colds

Many people believe that air conditioning can cause colds or other respiratory illnesses. However, this is not true. Colds are caused by viruses, not by exposure to cool air. Air conditioning systems are designed to provide comfortable indoor temperatures and improve air quality by filtering out pollutants and allergens.

By debunking these common myths, we hope to provide our clients with accurate information and help them make informed decisions about their HVAC systems. At Carden Heating & Cooling, we prioritize education and transparency, ensuring that our customers understand the intricacies of their systems and receive the best possible service.
