Demystifying HVAC Misconceptions for Optimal Comfort


At Air-Ref Co Inc, we understand the importance of dispelling common myths surrounding Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems. Our expert team is dedicated to providing accurate information to ensure your home or business remains comfortable and energy-efficient.

Myth #1: Closing Vents Saves Energy

Many people believe that closing vents in unused rooms will reduce energy consumption. However, this is a misconception. HVAC systems are designed to operate with a balanced airflow, and closing vents can disrupt this balance, causing the system to work harder and potentially leading to premature wear and tear.

Myth #2: Bigger is Better

It’s a common belief that a larger HVAC unit will provide better cooling and heating performance. In reality, an oversized unit can lead to inefficient operation, frequent cycling, and inadequate dehumidification. Proper sizing is crucial for optimal performance and energy savings.

Myth #3: Regular Maintenance is Unnecessary

Many homeowners and business owners neglect regular maintenance, believing that their HVAC systems will continue to function optimally without it. However, regular maintenance is essential for:

  • Improving energy efficiency
  • Extending the lifespan of the system
  • Ensuring indoor air quality
  • Preventing breakdowns and costly repairs

Myth #4: Air Filters Only Need Changing Once a Year

The frequency of air filter replacement depends on various factors, such as the type of filter, the number of occupants, and the presence of pets. Neglecting to change air filters can lead to reduced indoor air quality, decreased efficiency, and potentially higher energy bills.
