Clearing the Air on HVAC Myths for Optimal Comfort


At JTR Energy, we pride ourselves on providing top-notch heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) services to ensure your home or business remains comfortable year-round. However, we understand that there are numerous myths circulating about HVAC systems, which can lead to misconceptions and improper maintenance practices. In this blog post, we’ll debunk some common HVAC myths to help you make informed decisions and maximize the efficiency of your system.

Myth #1: Closing vents saves energy.

Many homeowners believe that closing vents in unused rooms can save energy and reduce utility bills. However, this is a misconception. HVAC systems are designed to operate with all vents open, allowing for proper airflow throughout the ductwork. Closing vents can actually increase the strain on your system, leading to decreased efficiency and potential damage.

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

While it may seem logical to install a larger HVAC unit for better cooling or heating performance, this is not always the case. An oversized unit can lead to frequent cycling, resulting in uneven temperatures, increased wear and tear, and higher energy consumption. It’s crucial to have a professional size your HVAC system correctly based on the square footage of your home or business.

Myth #3: Air conditioning units only need maintenance when they break down.

Regular maintenance is essential for ensuring the longevity and optimal performance of your HVAC system. Neglecting routine checkups and maintenance can lead to decreased energy efficiency, higher utility bills, and potential system failures. At JTR Energy, we recommend scheduling annual tune-ups to keep your HVAC unit running smoothly and extend its lifespan.
