Myths abound in every sector of life, and the HVAC industry is no exception. At Desert Diamond Air, we have encountered several misconceptions surrounding heating and air conditioning services. It’s time we put these myths to rest and elaborated on the reality behind them.
Myth 1: Higher thermostat settings heat the home faster
This misconception is one of the common ones we often hear. However, cranking up your thermostat to the highest setting will not heat your home any faster – it simply runs your system longer, leading to higher energy consumption and costs.
Myth 2: Closing vents in unused rooms saves energy
Not only is this a myth, but it could also damage your system. When vents are closed in an active heating or air conditioning system, pressure builds up which can lead to leaks. Instead of closing the vents and risking damage, consider zoning systems to save energy.
Myth 3: Regular maintenance isn’t necessary
Regular maintenance is crucial for the general operation and lifespan of your heating and cooling system. Neglecting
routine check-ups of your system can lead to decreased performance and even premature failure.
At Desert Diamond Air, we remain dedicated to offering top-notch 24-7 heating and air conditioning services. By debunking these myths, we hope to help our clients make better-informed decisions regarding their HVAC needs. Remember, staying informed is the key to achieving comfort and efficiency in home heating and cooling.
