Air conditioning and HVAC systems are confusing and full of moving parts. Like anything that’s harder to grasp, you’re bound to have a myriad of myths and misconceptions spring up; A/C and HVAC is no different! The only thing most Florida homeowners know about their A/C units is that they need one: Florida is one of the hottest places in the entire country and you don’t want to get caught out with a malfunctioning unit in the Florida sun!
A couple of myths revolving around A/C and HVAC are just plain wrong, the expert team at Florida Climate Worx has decided to put together a small little list to dispel these misunderstandings once and for all!
Turning Your Unit Off Saves Energy
Thousands of homeowners find themselves in the daily cycle of turning their A/C units off daily when they leave for work. Think about it this way, your house gets quite hot when you turn the unit off. When you come home at the end of the day, your unit is just going to have to work harder to cool down the house! Now, if you’re leaving for a week or month long vacation, you can feasibly expect to save energy if you keep your unit off!
Air Filters Aren’t Important
Some homeowners are under the impression that air filters aren’t a necessary part of their A/C units. This could not be further from the truth at all, air filters are your HVAC units first line of defence against debris and dust that can quickly clog your system. The longer you leave a filter unchanged, the more debris and dust it’ll pick up. This leads to a A/C unit that’s operating very efficiently, making your home hotter and costing you more money in the long run!
