Myths About HVAC System Maintenance | Colorado Springs

Over the years it is easy for facts and fiction to get mingled into myths. That’s why it is always important to do your own research, especially when it comes to something as important as your HVAC system. Here are a few common myths we have heard throughout the years. 

  • Bigger is better – some people think the larger the HVAC system the better it will heat and cool your house. This is incorrect. It’s usually a good idea to find the best size for your home, not the biggest. A big HVAC system could start and stop a lot and cause more wear on the HVAC system and on your wallet.
  • The thermostat is in control – The thermostat does set the temperature the HVAC is trying to reach, but there are many components that make up the temperature of your home. If your home isn’t sealed properly or has poor installation that could lead to a cool or warmer home than the thermostat suggests.
  • Change the filter once a year – Changing the filter only once a year isn’t enough to keep your home free of the access dust and debris an HVAC system filter can collect over the years. It is recommended by most HVAC companies to change the filter every couple of months to keep the air in your home as clean as possible.
  • These are just some of the myths surrounding HVAC systems so be sure to do your own research. It is important to know the facts when you are cleaning or purchasing an HVAC system. Call Summit heating and cooling and our experts will help you with any information you seek.
