Debunking HVAC Repair and Maintenance Myths with HART HVAC

We often hear many misconceptions and myths about HVAC system repair and maintenance, some of which can even cause damage to your HVAC system. Here at HART HVAC, we want to help you separate fact from fiction.

Myth 1: You Only Need to Change Your Air Filter Once a Year

One common myth is that you only need to change your air filter once a year. This is not true – in reality, you should change your air filter every 1-3 months depending on your household’s needs, such as if you have pets or suffer from allergies. If not properly maintained, your filter can become clogged with dust and dirt, reducing your system’s efficiency and potentially damaging it.

Myth 2: Routine HVAC Maintenance Isn’t Necessary

Another misconception is that routine HVAC maintenance isn’t necessary. This is far from the truth – regular service can extend the life of your system, save energy, and lower your energy bills. It’s always best to have your HVAC system inspected once a year to ensure it runs at its optimal efficiency and performance.

Myth 3: All HVAC Systems are Alike

The third myth we’d like to debunk is that all HVAC systems are alike. In reality, HVAC systems can differ greatly based on location, system type, and usage. That’s why it’s important to assess your home’s specific needs before choosing an HVAC installation.

In conclusion, knowing the truth about HVAC maintenance and repair can save you from unnecessary hassles and expenses. Feel free to contact HART HVAC if you have any concerns or need professional advice. We’re experts in the field and are dedicated to helping you make informed decisions about your HVAC system.
