Our trusted and reliable team at Alan Energy Services has come across a good share of misconceptions about HVAC services; from its installation, maintenance, to repair. In this blog post, we are here to debunk some prevalent HVAC myths to help you attain optimal comfort and efficiency on your HVAC systems in and around Elmhurst, IL, Lombard, IL, Westchester, IL, Villa Park, IL, Oak Brook, IL, and Addison, IL.
Myth 1: Bigger HVAC Systems Are Always Better
Contrary to popular belief, a bigger heating or air conditioning unit doesn’t always translate into better performance or increased comfort. The size of your HVAC system should be proportionate to the size of your property for better efficiency. An oversized unit will continually start and stop, causing unnecessary strain, while an undersized unit will work overtime to maintain the desired temperature, both situations can lead to early system failures.
Myth 2: HVAC Units Don’t Require Regular Service
Just like your car, HVAC units require regular maintenance to run smoothly. Preventive HVAC service can help locate and address potential issues before they turn into costly repairs or replacements. Plus, well-maintained HVAC units are more energy-efficient, resulting in reduced utility bills.
Myth 3: HVAC Filters Don’t Need Regular Change
While it might be easy to overlook, changing your HVAC filters is a crucial component of maintaining the overall system’s efficiency. Dust and dirt can quickly clog the filters, causing your unit to work harder than necessary and consume more energy, ultimately shortening its lifespan.
It is our hope that debunking these myths will help you better understand your HVAC system while improving its efficiency and lifespan. At Alan Energy Services, we specialize in HVAC installations, heating repair, furnace installation, and AC repair to ensure your utmost comfort all year round.
