Every year, it’s not uncommon that our HVAC team hears a variety of myths from homeowners, renters, and anyone else in the area that needs to hire an HVAC company. This is why in this article, we’re going to discuss some of the most common HVAC myths so that you don’t make the mistake of believing one of these myths yourself.
Myth #1 – You Only Have To Change Your Air Filter One A Year
Sadly, this is one of the most common myths that we hear every single year. Many people often think that they only have to change their HVAC air filter once a year. The reality is that an HVAC air filter should be changed no less than two to three times a year.
An HVAC air filter should be thought of no differently than the lungs inside of your own body. If your lungs become contaminated with other pollutants it’s going to be harder for you to breathe. Why should you look at your HVAC air filter any differently than your lungs?
Thankfully, HVAC air filters are very affordable and cost as little as $5 if you buy them at your neighborhood Walmart, or elsewhere in the local area
Myth #2 – A Bigger System Is Always Better
Another common HVAC myth that we hear every single year is that a bigger system is always better. This is far from the case because, a bigger system doesn’t always mean that it’s going to efficiently keep your home cool or warm during the year, much less remove the humidity from the air.
For best results with choosing an HVAC system, it’s best to consult with an HVAC professional who will then measure out the square footage of your home and choose the very best HVAC system based upon the overall size of your house, or property, where the HVAC unit needs to be placed.
Myth #3 – If It Ain’t Broke, Don’t Fix It
Last, of all, the most important, another HVAC myth that we’ve heard quite frequently over the years is the myth of if your HVAC system is still working, it doesn’t need maintenance unless it’s broken.
This is a horrible myth because, even though your HVAC system may still continue to run normally, the reality is that foregoing regular maintenance doesn’t mean that there isn’t a potential maintenance issue waiting to occur which could cost you hundreds of dollars to repair.
For best results with your HVAC system, it’s a smart idea to schedule regular HVAC checkups. By doing this you will be able to ensure that your HVAC system is being properly maintained and will be able to perform normally all year long.
