Busting Common Myths About HVAC Systems

As a trusted provider of heating and cooling solutions in Wexford, PA, and the surrounding areas, J.A. Sauer Heating & Air Conditioning is committed to educating homeowners about the importance of maintaining their HVAC systems. Unfortunately, there are many myths surrounding these systems that can lead to inefficient performance, higher energy bills, and even premature system failure. In this blog post, we’ll debunk some of the most common myths.

Myth #1: Closing vents saves energy

Many homeowners believe that closing vents in unused rooms can save energy. However, this is a misconception. HVAC systems are designed to operate with a balanced airflow, and closing vents can disrupt this balance, causing your system to work harder and potentially leading to damage.

Myth #2: Bigger is always better

When it comes to HVAC systems, bigger is not always better. An oversized system will cycle on and off more frequently, leading to increased wear and tear, and potentially failing to adequately control humidity levels. A properly sized system, tailored to your home’s specific needs, will operate more efficiently and provide optimal comfort.

Myth #3: Maintenance is unnecessary

  • Regular maintenance is crucial for ensuring your HVAC system operates at peak efficiency.
  • Neglecting maintenance can lead to a buildup of dirt and debris, reducing airflow and putting unnecessary strain on the system.
  • Routine maintenance can also help identify potential issues before they become major problems, saving you money on costly repairs down the line.
