Debunking Myths About HVAC Services


When it comes to Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems, there are many myths circulating that can lead to misconceptions and inefficient practices. At Belyea Brothers, we aim to provide accurate information and dispel these myths to ensure our customers make informed decisions about their HVAC needs.

Myth #1: Bigger is Always Better

One common myth is that a larger HVAC system will provide better cooling or heating. However, this is not necessarily true. An oversized system will cycle on and off more frequently, leading to uneven temperatures, increased wear and tear, and higher energy bills. The key is to have a properly sized system that matches the requirements of your living space.

Myth #2: Closing Vents Saves Energy

Many homeowners believe that closing vents in unused rooms will save energy. Unfortunately, this practice can actually put strain on your HVAC system, causing it to work harder and potentially leading to expensive repairs. The best approach is to keep all vents open and let the system operate as designed.

Myth #3: Air Filters Only Need Occasional Replacement

  • This myth can lead to poor indoor air quality and decreased system efficiency.
  • Air filters should be checked monthly and replaced when dirty, typically every 3 to 6 months.
  • Clogged filters restrict airflow, forcing the system to work harder and increasing energy consumption.

Myth #4: HVAC Maintenance is Unnecessary

Regular maintenance is crucial for ensuring the longevity and optimal performance of your HVAC system. Neglecting maintenance can lead to breakdowns, higher energy bills, and reduced indoor air quality. At Belyea Brothers, we offer comprehensive maintenance plans to keep your system running smoothly and efficiently.


By debunking these common myths, we hope to empower our customers with accurate information and help them make informed decisions about their HVAC needs. At Belyea Brothers, we prioritize providing licensed AC repair and HVAC services to ensure your comfort and peace of mind.
