We pride ourselves on providing reliable and transparent services to our customers, including our “Any Day, Any Time, One Price – No EXTRA Charges for Nights and Weekends” policy for priority customer club members.

Myth #1: Bigger is Always Better for Air Conditioners

Many homeowners believe that installing a larger air conditioning unit will provide better cooling. However, this is a common misconception. An oversized unit will cool your home too quickly, leading to frequent cycling, excessive moisture buildup, and higher energy bills. Proper sizing is crucial to ensure optimal efficiency and comfort.

Myth #2: Air Conditioners Don’t Need Regular Maintenance

  • Neglecting regular maintenance can lead to several issues, including:
    • Reduced efficiency and increased energy costs
    • Shorter lifespan of the unit
    • Potential breakdowns and costly repairs
  • At Advanced Heating, we recommend scheduling annual tune-ups to keep your system running smoothly and efficiently.

Myth #3: Closing Vents in Unused Rooms Saves Energy

Contrary to popular belief, closing vents in unused rooms can actually put unnecessary strain on your air conditioning system. This practice can disrupt the system’s airflow balance, leading to inefficient operation and potential damage. Instead, we recommend keeping all vents open and properly servicing your unit for optimal energy savings.
