AC Service | There is a lot of great information available today about air conditioners. However, a lot of the things that you have heard may not be true. Below is a list of some of the most common AC myths:
Myth: I Will Automatically Save Money On My Energy Bills If I Get AC Replacement
Fact: AC replacement can help you save money on your energy bills. New air conditioners are more efficient than the older ones. However, getting a new air conditioner does not automatically mean that you will save money on energy bills. You will have to make sure that your air conditioner is the appropriate size for your home. If the air conditioner is not the appropriate size, then you will end up spending more money instead of saving it.
Myth: Dropping The Temperature Low Will Help You Cool Your Home Faster
Fact: You may be tempted to set the temperature on the thermostat low if the weather outside is very hot. However, this will not cool your home faster. The air handler will move warm air at a set speed. That is why you will only be wasting energy by setting the temperature low.
Myth: Keeping The Doors Closed Will Prevent Me From Losing Cool Air
Fact: Keeping doors and windows closed will prevent cool air from escaping. However, you may be losing air in other places in your home. For example, cracks in the windows and doors can cause you to lose air.
Myth: You Can Cool The Room By Keeping The Ceiling Fan On
Fact: Many people use ceiling fans to keep their home cool during the summer months. Ceiling fans create a gentle breeze, which helps you feel cooler. However, it will not actually keep the room cool. That is why running a ceiling fan when no one is in the room wastes energy.
