Busting HVAC Myths for Your Home Comfort

When it comes to your home’s heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system, there are many myths and misconceptions that can lead to unnecessary expenses or even cause damage to your unit. At Bradley Heating & Air Conditioning, we’re dedicated to providing our customers with reliable and trustworthy information to ensure their HVAC systems operate efficiently and safely.

Myth #1: Closing vents in unused rooms saves energy.

This is a common myth that many homeowners believe. However, the truth is that closing vents can actually increase the workload on your HVAC system, causing it to work harder and consume more energy. Your HVAC system is designed to distribute air evenly throughout your home, and closing vents disrupts this balance, leading to potential damage and increased energy costs.

Myth #2: Bigger is always better when it comes to HVAC units.

  1. Oversized units often cycle on and off more frequently, leading to inefficient operation and uneven temperatures throughout your home.
  2. They also tend to consume more energy and have higher operating costs.
  3. Proper sizing is crucial for optimal performance and energy efficiency.

Myth #3: You don’t need to change air filters regularly.

Neglecting to change your air filters on a regular basis can have serious consequences for your HVAC system and indoor air quality. Dirty filters restrict airflow, forcing your system to work harder and potentially leading to breakdowns or premature failure. Additionally, clogged filters can circulate dust, allergens, and pollutants throughout your home, compromising indoor air quality.

At Bradley Heating & Air Conditioning, we prioritize educating our customers and providing reliable solutions for their HVAC needs. By debunking these common myths, we aim to help homeowners make informed decisions and ensure their systems operate efficiently, saving them money and prolonging the lifespan of their HVAC units.
