Debunking HVAC Myths for Cheshire Heating and Air

Are you tired of falling for HVAC myths? At Cheshire Heating & Air, we’re here to set the record straight. As experts in HVAC installation and air conditioning installation, we’ve heard it all. Let’s debunk some common myths and separate fact from fiction.

Myth 1: Closing Vents Saves Energy

Many homeowners believe that closing vents in unused rooms can save energy and reduce utility bills. However, this is a misconception. HVAC systems are designed to operate with a balanced airflow throughout the entire system. Closing vents can actually increase energy consumption by causing your system to work harder and potentially leading to premature breakdowns.

Myth 2: Bigger is Better When it Comes to HVAC Units

While it’s tempting to believe that a larger HVAC unit will provide better cooling and heating, this isn’t always the case. An oversized unit can lead to:

  • Inefficient cooling and heating
  • Increased energy costs
  • Frequent cycling (turning on and off), which reduces the unit’s lifespan

The key is to have a properly sized unit based on your home’s square footage and insulation levels.

Myth 3: HVAC Maintenance is Unnecessary

Regular maintenance is crucial for the longevity and efficiency of your HVAC system. Neglecting routine check-ups and cleaning can lead to:

  • Reduced energy efficiency
  • Higher utility bills
  • Potential system breakdowns

At Cheshire Heating & Air, we recommend scheduling annual tune-ups to ensure your system is operating at its best.
