Separating Facts from Myths in the HVAC Industry


In the world of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), myths and misconceptions often circulate, leading to confusion and misinformed decisions. At Conway Air Conditioning, we believe in providing our customers with accurate information to ensure their comfort and energy efficiency. In this blog post, we’ll debunk some common myths surrounding HVAC systems and services.

Myth #1: Closing Vents Saves Energy

Many homeowners believe that closing vents in unused rooms will save energy by reducing the workload on their HVAC system. However, this is a misconception. HVAC systems are designed to operate with balanced airflow throughout the entire system. Closing vents can disrupt this balance, causing the system to work harder and leading to potential mechanical issues and decreased efficiency.

Myth #2: Bigger is Always Better for HVAC Units

It’s a common assumption that larger HVAC units are more powerful and efficient. However, this is not necessarily true. An oversized unit will cycle on and off frequently, leading to increased energy consumption and wear and tear. The proper sizing of an HVAC unit is crucial for optimal performance and efficiency.

Myth #3: HVAC Maintenance is Unnecessary

  • Regular maintenance is essential for ensuring the longevity and efficiency of your HVAC system.
  • Neglecting maintenance can lead to:
    • Increased energy consumption
    • Premature system failure
    • Poor indoor air quality
  • Professional technicians can identify and address potential issues before they become major problems, saving you money in the long run.

By debunking these common myths, we hope to empower you to make informed decisions about your home’s comfort and energy efficiency.
