Demystifying Common HVAC Misconceptions

Grissom Service Company, a renowned locally trusted HVAC provider, is here to debunk some common myths about air conditioning and related services. Understanding the truth behind these misconceptions can help you make informed decisions and ensure optimal comfort and energy efficiency in your home or business.

Myth 1: Bigger is Always Better for Air Conditioners

Many people believe that purchasing the largest air conditioning unit will provide better cooling. However, this is a myth. An oversized unit will:

  • Cycle on and off frequently, leading to inefficient operation
  • Fail to effectively remove humidity from the air
  • Increase energy costs and wear and tear on the system

The key is to have a properly sized unit based on the square footage of your space and other factors, as recommended by professional HVAC technicians.

Myth 2: Closing Vents in Unused Rooms Saves Energy

Contrary to popular belief, closing vents in unused rooms does not save energy. In fact, it can potentially damage your HVAC system by increasing pressure and strain on the components. Instead, it’s best to keep all vents open and adjust the thermostat to maintain consistent temperatures throughout your home or office.

Myth 3: Air Conditioning Maintenance is Unnecessary

Neglecting regular maintenance on your air conditioning system is a costly mistake. Routine professional maintenance can:

  • Improve energy efficiency by up to 15%
  • Extend the lifespan of your HVAC system
  • Prevent breakdowns and costly repairs
  • Enhance indoor air quality

At Grissom Service Company, we recommend scheduling annual tune-ups to keep your system running smoothly and efficiently.
