Busting HVAC Myths for Superior Comfort


At Long’s Air Conditioning, Inc., we understand that numerous myths surrounding HVAC systems can lead to misinformation and poor decision-making. That’s why we’re here to debunk some common myths and shed light on the truth.

Myth #1: Bigger is Always Better

Many homeowners believe that investing in an oversized HVAC unit will provide better cooling and heating. However, this is far from the truth. An oversized unit will cycle on and off frequently, leading to increased energy consumption, uneven temperature distribution, and premature wear and tear. Our experts at Long’s Air Conditioning, Inc. can precisely calculate the appropriate size for your space, ensuring optimal efficiency and comfort.

Myth #2: Closing Vents Saves Energy

  • Closing vents in unused rooms does not save energy; it can actually put unnecessary strain on your HVAC system.
  • When vents are closed, the system has to work harder to distribute air through the remaining open vents, leading to increased energy consumption and potential damage.
  • Our professionals recommend keeping vents open and programming your thermostat to maintain consistent temperatures throughout your home.

Myth #3: Air Conditioners Cool the Air

Contrary to popular belief, air conditioners don’t actually cool the air; they remove heat and moisture from the air. This process helps maintain a comfortable indoor environment by lowering the temperature and reducing humidity levels. Regular maintenance and AC repair services from Long’s Air Conditioning, Inc. ensure your system operates efficiently, providing optimal cooling and dehumidification.

By debunking these common myths, we hope to empower our customers with the knowledge to make informed decisions about their HVAC systems. At Long’s Air Conditioning, Inc., we prioritize providing exceptional service and ensuring your home remains comfortable throughout the year.
