Busted! Don’t Believe These HVAC Myths!
A heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system can maintain temperature, humidity, and air purity at optimum levels in your home. Therefore, it’s essential to ensure your HVAC system works effectively during extreme changes in weather.
However, many misconceptions about HVAC mislead homeowners into making the wrong decisions with their systems. So, to help you steer clear of these misconceptions, Zenith Solutions Inc. has debunked three of the most widely believed myths about HVAC.
Myth 1:The biggest HVAC system is always the best
While a bigger HVAC system will heat or cool a home faster, it isn’t always best as the rooms may not benefit from gradual and evenly heating and cooling. An oversized HVAC will also cost you more.
Myth 2: Your HVAC system doesn’t need maintenance unless it’s broken
An HVAC system needs maintenance to remove the dust and prevent it from clogging the coil. Also, as an HVAC system ages, it may not be broken, but it will become less efficient, so energy bills will cost more if not cleaned regularly.
Myth 3: The location of the thermostat doesn’t matter
It does matter where the thermostat is located, as its purpose is to monitor your space’s temperature and send signals to the HVAC. Therefore, the thermostat shouldn’t get placed in direct sunlight, above air vents, or in the kitchen.
