Myths of any kind can be a fun subject to explore. More often than not, though, many myths are often proven incorrect with relevant and practical information. When it comes to the HVAC system in your home, there are plenty of myths to fall for. This is especially true if you always use the internet as your only reliable source of information. With that said, listed below are some common myths associated with your home’s heating and cooling system.
An Extensive HVAC System Is Necessary For Your Home
There is always the false misconception that bigger is almost always better. In the case of HVAC units, this is incorrect. Oversized systems are less efficient, and they won’t be able to remove humidity from the air. Since spring and summer tend to be the more humid seasons, this will leave you and your family feeling sweaty and uncomfortable more than you need to be. The friendly team at W.E. Kingswell is more than capable of helping you select the most suitable HVAC system for the needs of your home.
Maintenance For Your HVAC System Isn’t Required
It’s also easy to assume you don’t need to maintain your HVAC. Preventative maintenance is far less expensive and time-consuming than dealing with significant repairs later. With this form of care, you can also reduce the chances that you’ll need to pay for a replacement unit.
You Can Find Air Leaks On Your Own
It is best to avoid DIY tasks regarding the health of your HVAC system. Air leaks are pretty tricky to locate. The truth is that air leaks are more challenging to find than you might think they are. You might (eventually) notice that telltale hissing sound. By then, it could already be too late. That is why it is even more important to consult with our trusted team of technicians.
You Don’t Have To Replace Your Air Filters
Many homeowners perceive the replacement of air filters as an unnecessary hassle. However, you could not be more wrong. At the most, you should only go three months at most with changing your filters. Keeping your air filters switched ensures that your HVAC system continues functioning properly.
