In our last blog, we explored several myths about HVAC. These heating and cooling systems are absolutely crucial to the comfort and health of you and your family, no matter the season. They have been around for a while, and many different ideas have come up about them. Some of these are misleading, and can lead to costly mistakes. At James Brown Air Conditioning and Heating, we are committed to making sure you get the best service possible, and that includes education! That is why we are offering up some more misleading ideas about HVAC!

  1. MYTH: Service agreements are too expensive
    • In the end, you need to maintain your HVAC system. Paying a little extra for a contractor’s best performance is worth it. And it is infinitely better than paying large amounts of money to fix the shoddy workmanship of low-bid work.
  2. MYTH: Closing vents in unused rooms saves you money.
    • Closing these vents actually throws off the system’s balance. This can eventually lead to leaks created by built-up pressure in ductwork.
  3. MYTH: Turning off your AC when you leave a building is not worth it, because it requires lots of energy to get running again.
    • At the end of the day, you save money whenever your equipment is not running. However, the best thing to do depends on the situation. For instance, if it is extremely hot, turning the system off overnight can tax the system the next day. The good thing about these systems is that most of them can be turned down rather than off. Talk to a professional to learn how to efficiently run your system.
