4 Common HVAC Myths Debunked

4 Common HVAC Myths Debunked

In today's digital world, people have access to incredible amounts of information with the simple click of a button. However, there is a lot of misinformation being spread around, especially with regards to air conditioning units. There are myths about AC units that simply aren't true. With that being said, here are some common myths about AC units that people living in Los Angeles may have heard.

1. A Ceiling Fan Is Unnecessary If An AC Is In The Home

If air is moving through the residence from a ceiling fan, residents will feel cooler. However, using a ceiling fan and an AC unit together will provide a consistent source of cool air. Using an AC unit along with a ceiling fan can help people save money on their energy bill.

2. Larger Air Conditioning Units Are Better

Many people are unaware that air conditioners dehumidify the air. Size is important, but it's not the most important factor to consider when purchasing an AC unit. Make sure that the AC unit is a good fit for the home. Insulation, air leakage, and windows are things that should be taken into consideration before purchasing an AC unit. If the AC fits the home, it may run for a longer period of time.

3. An Air Conditioner Unit May Cause Someone To Catch A Cold

An AC unit will help lower a person's body temperature, which may make them more susceptible to catching a cold. However, the common cold is caused by a virus, not the temperature.

4. Turning The Thermostat Up Or Down Will Cool The House Off Faster

Turning your AC Unit all the way up or down will cause it to become less efficient because it has to work harder. Turning up the thermostat can cause the energy bill to become more expensive. Set the thermostat to a comfortable temperature, and if necessary, use the ceiling fan to help move more air around the residence.
