Debunking Common Myths About Air Conditioning Services


When it comes to air conditioning services, there are many myths and misconceptions floating around that can lead to unnecessary confusion. At First Choice Plumbing, Heating & Cooling, we’re here to set the record straight and debunk some of the most common myths about air conditioning repair, installation, and maintenance.

Myth #1: Bigger is Always Better for AC Units

One prevalent myth is that bigger air conditioning units are always better. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. An oversized unit will not only waste energy, but it will also fail to properly dehumidify the air, leading to an uncomfortable environment. The key is to have a professional technician properly size the unit for your home or business.

Myth #2: AC Maintenance is Unnecessary

Many homeowners and business owners believe that air conditioning maintenance is an unnecessary expense. However, regular maintenance can extend the lifespan of your unit, improve energy efficiency, and ensure optimal performance. Neglecting maintenance can lead to costly repairs or premature system failure.

Myth #3: Closing Vents Saves Energy

Another common myth is that closing vents in unused rooms can save energy. In reality, this practice can actually put strain on your HVAC system and reduce its efficiency. Air conditioning units are designed to operate with a balanced airflow, and closing vents disrupts this balance, causing the system to work harder and potentially leading to premature wear and tear.
