Clearing the Air on AC Myths



When it comes to air conditioning systems, there are plenty of myths and misconceptions floating around. At Bradberry Service Company, we understand the importance of separating fact from fiction. In this blog post, we’ll debunk some common myths and provide you with accurate information to help you make informed decisions about your AC unit.

Myth #1: Bigger is Always Better

Many homeowners believe that a larger air conditioning unit will cool their home more effectively. However, this is not always the case. An oversized unit may cycle on and off too frequently, leading to inefficient cooling, higher energy bills, and premature wear and tear on the system.

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

One of the most common myths is that air conditioners can function optimally without regular maintenance. The truth is, regular maintenance is crucial to ensure your unit operates efficiently and has a longer lifespan. Neglecting routine maintenance can lead to:

  • Reduced energy efficiency
  • Higher utility bills
  • Frequent breakdowns
  • Shortened lifespan of the unit

Myth #3: Closing Vents in Unused Rooms Saves Energy

While it may seem logical to close vents in unused rooms to save energy, this practice can actually put unnecessary strain on your AC system. Air conditioners are designed to operate with a specific amount of airflow, and closing vents can disrupt this balance, leading to inefficient operation and potential system damage.
