Debunking Myths: Understanding Reliable HVAC Repair, Maintenance, and Installation from HART HVAC

In the world of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), there are quite a few misconceptions that can lead to costly decisions and unnecessary hassles. As experts in the industry, HART HVAC is here to debunk these myths and ensure you have accurate, useful information to keep your HVAC system running smoothly.

Myth 1: You Only Need to Change Your Filter Once a Year

A recurring misconception is that you only need to change your HVAC system’s filter once a year. In truth, HART HVAC recommends checking your filter once a month. Depending on the type of filter and the air quality in your home, you may need to change it as frequently as every 30 days.

Changing your filter is an integral part of maintaining optimal HVAC system performance. A dirty filter reduces air flow, which makes your system work harder, wasting energy and possibly causing maintenance issues.

Myth 2: Turning Your System Off and On Saves Energy

Another common myth is that frequently turning your HVAC system on and off saves energy. This is not only false, but it can lead to premature wear and tear on your system. Your system uses more energy during the startup process, so repeatedly turning it off and on may actually increase your energy consumption. Instead, consider investing in a programmable thermostat that will automatically maintain your desired temperature for maximum efficiency.

Myth 3: The Bigger, the Better

When it comes to HVAC systems, bigger isn’t always better. A system that’s too large for your home will cycle on and off too often, causing unnecessary wear and tear. Not to mention, it’s more likely to create uncomfortable temperature fluctuations. HART HVAC offers professional assessments to determine the right size unit for your specific needs.

Debunking such myths is key to understanding the nuances of HVAC maintenance and finding the best system for you. At HART HVAC, we are committed to delivering reliable HVAC repair, maintenance, and installation services that prioritize your comfort and efficiency.
