Common Misconceptions About Your HVAC System

Feb 5, 2020

Whether you find yourself amid a hot summer afternoon or a windy and cold winter night here in Greene County, your HVAC system is constantly working to ensure you stay cozy day and night, all year-round.  With that stated, these days, there are a lot of misconceptions associated with people’s furnaces and air conditioning systems, and how they operate, followed by the particular “do’s” and “don’ts” that people affiliate with them. To make you aware of a few of the more common ones, we at Beavercreek Heating & Cooling expose the following myths about your HVAC system.

 

Common Myths About Your HVAC System

Setting Your Thermostat Up All The Way Will Warm Up Your Home Faster

Thermostats send information to your home’s system that tells it to switch on and off and sets it to the sought after temperature level you want to maintain. Adjusting it all the way up does not warm up your home any faster. The same goes for summertime and turning it down all the way. This will NOT cool off your home any faster. That’s simply not how it functions.

 

Closing Off The Vents In Empty Rooms Enhances Energy Performance

Closing up your air vents can boost the flow of air and increase pressure in the ducts, which can lead to air leaks in the vent’s joints. If you find that your residence has areas that are hot and areas that are cold, we recommend thinking about getting a zoning system.

 

You Really Only Need To Change Air Filters Once A Year

Nothing good can come of this. We at Beavercreek Heating & Cooling strongly suggest that you replace your air filters frequently, like once every two months, and even more regularly if you have multiple pets in your place. That being said, you might be able to spare yourself the nuisance of replacing your filter as frequently by having a professional install an air purifier.

 

Regular Routine Maintenance Is Not Necessary

Your HVAC system is a precious and sophisticated mechanism that needs a tune-up every single year, similar to that of an expensive new car. Household HVAC systems have tons of moving elements that truly necessitate inspection, oiling, lubrication, and cleaning often. It’s essential that a professional makes calculations to guarantee your system is performing at its peak ability. And doing this will save you a lot of money and a lot of heartaches. We strongly suggest you have a professional do this every year to both your AC unit and your furnace to guarantee its survival and effectiveness. Getting a tune-up for your system every year can shield you from costly repairs in the future. As it is often stated in our field, when it comes to HVAC systems, it forever pays off to be proactive instead of being reactive.

 

The Bigger The HVAC System, The More Beneficial

Having a system that is too large for your house will prompt it to cycle on and off excessively, which will cost you more money to keep it operating and will lessen its life expectancy. When it comes time to replace your system, having one of our skilled technicians do the job will go a long way. We will measure each room in your home and recommend a model for you that has the precise specifications that are best for your home to ensure you have the option that is the most energy-efficient possible.
