Clearing the Air on Common AC Misconceptions

Myth: Closing air vents will reduce energy costs.

Many homeowners believe that closing off vents in unused rooms can help save energy and lower utility bills. However, this is a misconception. Air conditioning systems are designed to distribute air evenly throughout the house. Closing vents disrupts this balance, causing your system to work harder and potentially leading to higher energy costs and premature wear and tear.

Myth: Bigger is always better when it comes to AC units.

While it may seem logical that a larger air conditioning unit would cool your home more effectively, this is not necessarily true. An oversized unit will cool the space quickly but will cycle on and off more frequently, leading to increased energy consumption and uneven cooling. The key is to have a properly sized unit that matches your home’s cooling needs.
