As a property owner or a tenant, you have undoubtedly heard various things regarding air conditioning. You probably don’t know what is true or not if you aren’t an HVAC expert. We will today address some of these widespread misconceptions in the hopes of educating you about air conditioners. The more you know about it, the less problems you will have to face.
It’s important to replace air filters often. Your filter will become clogged if you let dust, grime, and other impurities accumulate in it. Your system will have to work harder because of inadequate airflow caused by a blocked filter, increasing your power cost. Poor indoor air quality is another thing you might face. Once every month is what we advise doing for your air filter.
We are aware that some individuals stick to the norm of “if it ain’t broke, don’t repair it.” This might be true for certain things in life, but your HVAC system is one of them. It is imperative that your system gets regular maintenance. If you don’t have you maintain your system, problems might occur and occur more frequently.
That’s a false statement. The location of your thermostat should be away from heat-generating equipment and out of the direct sunlight. If it is, the thermostat will assume that the inside temperature of your home is hot, forcing the air conditioner to operate longer than it should. The thermostat will cease cooling your house even when it is hot if it is located close to air vents since it will perceive the inside temperature as chilly.
It’s a common mis-belief that lowering the thermostat’s setting would cause the house to cool down more quickly. Your house may cool down without turning the thermostat down to 60 degrees. We advise changing the temperature to a level that you find comfortable and allowing it some time to acclimatize.
You may regulate the amount of air that is released using the air vents. If you close a vent, the system doesn’t detect it and does not shift the airflow to a different area in the house. When a vent is closed, air is forced back into the ducts, where much of it is lost. If your vents are closed, the system might be damaged and its power usage could rise, costing you more money.
Particularly when it comes to air conditioners, bigger AC unit is not necessarily better. The air conditioner will constantly cycle on and off if it is too large for the area it is supposed to cool. Short cycling dramatically increases power consumption, shortens life, and accelerates component wear out.
