Over the years, we’ve encountered several myths and misconceptions about our industry, and it’s time to set the record straight.

Myth 1: Closing Air Vents Saves Energy

Many homeowners believe that closing air vents in unused rooms can save energy and lower their utility bills. However, this is a common misconception. HVAC systems are designed to operate with a balanced airflow, and closing vents can disrupt this balance, causing the system to work harder, leading to increased energy consumption and potential damage.

Myth 2: Bigger is Always Better for Air Conditioning Units

It’s a common belief that larger air conditioning units are more efficient and will cool a home faster. In reality, an oversized unit will cool the space too quickly, leading to frequent cycling on and off, resulting in uneven temperatures and higher energy costs. The key is to have a properly sized unit that matches the cooling load of your home.

Myth 3: Plumbing Issues Can Wait

  • Ignoring plumbing problems can lead to more significant and costlier issues down the line.
  • Small leaks, clogged drains, and slow-draining sinks should be addressed promptly to prevent further damage and water waste.
  • Regular maintenance and prompt repairs can save you money and extend the life of your plumbing system.

Many homeowners think that furnace maintenance is unnecessary, but neglecting regular tune-ups can lead to inefficient operation, increased energy costs, and potential safety hazards.
