Debunking HVAC Myths with All Temp Heating & Air Conditioning

There are quite a few misconceptions when it comes to furnace repair and heating service. Today, we’re here to debunk these misconceptions with the help of All Temp Heating & Air Conditioning, your trusted local HVAC service provider. The company is committed to providing top-notch services and helping its customers understand their HVAC systems more clearly.

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

One of the most harmful myths is that you only need to change your heating system’s filter once a year. This is not true. It is actually recommended that you change your furnace filter every month, especially during the heating season. A clean filter promotes better air quality, improves system efficiency, and extends the life of your HVAC system. All Temp recommends regular filter checks and changes as a part of good HVAC maintenance.

Myth 2: The Bigger The Heating System, The Better

Another common misconception is that a bigger furnace will heat your home faster and more efficiently. This is not the case. An oversized furnace will heat your home quickly, but will shut off before it reaches its maximum efficiency. On the other hand, a correctly sized furnace will run for a longer period, resulting in more consistent temperatures and better energy efficiency. If you’re unsure about the size, All Temp’s experts can provide professional advice on the best furnace size for your home.

Myth 3: Cranking Up The Thermostat Heats The Home Faster

The final myth we are tackling today is the idea that turning the thermostat up higher will make the house heat faster. Thermostats aren’t accelerators; they are regulators of maintained temperature. By turning up your thermostat, you’re not making the heat come faster, just making the furnace work longer than needed. All Temp suggests setting your thermostat to a comfortable and economically efficient temperature and leaving it to do its job.

By debunking these commonplace myths, All Temp Heating & Air Conditioning contributes to a deeper understanding of HVAC systems and their efficiency. Remember, professional maintenance from All Temp’s qualified team is your best defense against HVAC problems. Stay warm!
