Debunking HVAC Myths with Faust Heating & A/C Services

11/16/2023 0 Comments

We all struggle to keep our homes comfortable and energy-efficient. When it comes to HVAC systems, conflicting information abounds, leading to common myths that can cost you money and efficiency. At Faust Heating & A/C Services we aim to debunk these myths and help you understand your HVAC system better.

Myth #1: The Bigger the HVAC System, the Better

Many homeowners believe that a larger HVAC system will heat or cool their homes more efficiently. However, this is not the case. A sizeable HVAC system may heat or cool your space faster, but it will probably turn on and off more often, leading to reduced efficiency. The right-sized unit is what’s important.

Myth #2: Turning the Thermostat Way Down Will Cool the House Faster

Another common belief is that dramatically lowering the thermostat’s temperature will cool the home faster. While it may seem logical, most HVAC systems deliver cool air at the same rate, regardless of the set temperature. All you’re really doing is making your system work harder, leading to unnecessary wear and tear.

Myth #3: You Only Need to Change the Filter Once a Year

Some people think changing the filter once a year is enough. However, experts suggest changing it every one to three months, depending on your system, to maintain air quality and efficiency. A dirty filter can make your system work harder and result in higher energy bills.

Separating fact from fiction can help get the most from your HVAC system. Remember, regular maintenance from a professional is the best way to ensure the efficiency and longevity of your system. Trust your local HVAC service professionals to get the job done right.
