It’s no secret that the trusted HVAC professionals at Bradberry Service Company encounter a fair share of myths and misconceptions surrounding air conditioning, heating, and ventilation systems. In this blog post, we’ll debunk some of the most common ones, shedding light on the truth behind these widespread beliefs.

Myth #1: Bigger is Always Better for AC Units

Many homeowners assume that installing the largest possible air conditioning unit will ensure optimal cooling performance. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. An oversized AC unit will cycle on and off more frequently, leading to inefficient operation, uneven cooling, and excessive wear and tear on the system. Proper sizing is crucial to maintain a comfortable indoor environment while minimizing energy consumption.

Myth #2: Closing Vents Saves Energy

  • Closing vents in unused rooms is a common practice, but it can actually increase your energy bills.
  • HVAC systems are designed to operate with a specific airflow distribution, and closing vents disrupts this balance.
  • This can lead to increased pressure within the ductwork, causing the system to work harder and potentially leading to premature failure.

Myth #3: HVAC Maintenance is Unnecessary

Neglecting regular maintenance on your HVAC system is a surefire way to shorten its lifespan and compromise its efficiency. Routine inspections and cleanings by certified technicians can identify and address minor issues before they escalate into costly repairs. Additionally, a well-maintained system operates more efficiently, saving you money on energy bills in the long run.
