Clearing the Air Conditioning Myths


When it comes to air conditioning, there are numerous myths circulating that can lead to misinformation and inefficient cooling practices. At Ellsworth Home Services, we believe in dispelling these myths and providing our customers with accurate information. In this blog post, we’ll address some common misconceptions about AC repair, installation, and service.

Myth #1: Bigger is always better when it comes to AC units.

Many homeowners assume that a larger air conditioning unit will cool their space more effectively. However, this is not always the case. An oversized unit will cycle on and off frequently, leading to inadequate dehumidification and uneven cooling. Properly sized units are essential for energy efficiency and comfort.

Myth #2: Closing vents in unused rooms saves energy.

  • Closing vents can actually increase energy consumption and strain your AC system.
  • Air conditioning systems are designed to distribute air evenly throughout the entire space.
  • Closing vents can cause an imbalance in the system, leading to inefficient operation and potential damage.

Myth #3: Air conditioning maintenance is unnecessary.

Regular maintenance is crucial for ensuring the longevity and efficiency of your air conditioning system. Neglecting maintenance can lead to various issues, including:

  1. Reduced energy efficiency
  2. Decreased cooling capacity
  3. Premature system failure

At Ellsworth Home Services, we recommend scheduling annual tune-ups to keep your AC unit running smoothly.


By debunking these common myths, we hope to empower our customers with the knowledge necessary to make informed decisions about their air conditioning needs. If you have any further questions or require professional assistance, our team at Ellsworth Home Services is always ready to help.
