There’s a lot of information floating around about Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) servicing, repairs and installations. It’s important to separate facts from myths to avoid compromising the efficiency and longevity of your system. B&B Heating & Air Conditioning, a leading provider of these services, helps us break down some of these misconceptions.
Myth 1: Changing filters occasionally is enough
It’s often misconstrued that changing HVAC filters bi-annually or annually is adequate, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Ideally, filters should be checked and replaced every 30-90 days, depending on your system and usage. Regular checks and changes can significantly increase your HVAC system’s efficiency and longevity. Remember, a clean filter means cleaner, healthier air for your home or office.
Myth 2: Bigger units provide better service
Another common myth is the belief that a bigger HVAC unit will provide better service. This is a misconception because HVAC units are designed to handle specific load sizes. A larger unit might cycle on and off more often, leading to early wear and tear, and uneven temperatures. B&B’s experienced professionals provide expert guidance to help you select the optimal unit size for your needs.
Myth 3: You only require professional service when there’s a breakdown
Thinking that professional HVAC service is required only when you confront a breakdown is misconception. Regular maintenance by professionals could actually prevent many breakdowns, saving costs in the long run. This can also prolong the service life of your device, ensuring that you get the most out your HVAC system.
Now that we have debunked these myths, remember that the key to a long-lasting and efficient HVAC system lies in regular professional check-ups, choosing the right size of unit, and changing filters routinely.
