Debunking HVAC Myths for Ridge Energy Savers


When it comes to HVAC systems, there are many myths and misconceptions that can lead to inefficient operation, higher energy costs, and premature system failure. At Ridge Energy Savers, we believe in providing our customers with accurate information and dispelling these common myths.

Myth #1: Closing vents saves energy

Many homeowners believe that closing vents in unused rooms can save energy. However, this is not true. Your HVAC system is designed to distribute air evenly throughout your home, and closing vents can actually increase the workload on your system, leading to higher energy consumption and potential damage.

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

Some people think that installing a larger HVAC unit than necessary will provide better cooling or heating. In reality, an oversized unit will cycle on and off more frequently, leading to inconsistent temperatures and higher energy bills. It’s important to have a properly sized system for your home’s square footage.

Myth #3: HVAC maintenance is unnecessary

  • Regular maintenance is crucial for the longevity and efficiency of your HVAC system.
  • Neglecting maintenance can lead to increased energy consumption, potential breakdowns, and a shortened lifespan for your equipment.
  • At Ridge Energy Savers, we recommend scheduling annual tune-ups to ensure optimal performance.


At Ridge Energy Savers, we are committed to providing our customers with reliable and accurate information about HVAC systems. By debunking these common myths, we hope to empower our customers to make informed decisions and enjoy the benefits of an efficient and well-maintained HVAC system.
