We are here to bust some of those HVAC myths flying around. In fact, many homeowners tend to truly fall for a variety of myths regarding heating, cooling, and ventilation systems. Let us take a look at some of the more common misconceptions homeowners believe and bust these myths, once and for all.
Myth #1: Closing Air Vents In One Room Will Deliver Air Into Other Specific Rooms
Many homeowners think that by closing air vents in one room, they are somehow saving money on their utility bills. However, modern HVAC systems are created to spread out the pressure load throughout the house, no matter whether an air vent is closed off or not. As a result, closing off vents in certain rooms can really throw your HVAC system off balance, creating a lot more problems in the end. Therefore, always remember that HVAC systems are made to help the house be comfortable which does not include closing off air vents in an attempt to save money. Because in the end, the costly repairs that could result from having the HVAC system work overtime to recalibrate itself is a lot more money than you think you are saving.
Myth #2: Keeping All Ceiling Fans Running Will Cool Down A Room
The only thing that ceiling fans do is circulate air throughout a room and cool off humans when in any room. In fact, ceiling fans do nothing to impact the temperature inside a room. As a result, you can actually save electricity by turning off any ceiling fans in your home before leaving the house since it isn’t going to do anyone any good by staying on when no one is present in the home.
Myth #3: Change Or Clean Air Filters Annually
It is critical to change your air filters every three months, or 90 days. In fact, depending on the air quality in the home, air filters should be changed every other month to ensure that the air quality is clean and devoid of nasty pollutants that can cause serious health problems.
