Debunking Myths About AC Installation and HVAC Services


When it comes to keeping your home comfortable, there are many myths and misconceptions surrounding air conditioning installation and HVAC services. At Ellsworth Home Services, we’re dedicated to providing reliable information and top-notch services. In this blog post, we’ll address some common myths and set the record straight.

Myth #1: Bigger is Always Better for AC Units

One widespread myth is that bigger air conditioning units are always better. However, this is not necessarily true. An oversized unit can lead to inefficient cooling, frequent cycling (turning on and off), and higher energy bills. The key is to have a properly sized AC unit that matches the cooling load of your home.

Myth #2: HVAC Maintenance is Unnecessary

Many homeowners believe that HVAC maintenance is an unnecessary expense. However, regular maintenance can extend the lifespan of your system, improve energy efficiency, and prevent costly breakdowns. Neglecting maintenance can lead to issues like poor indoor air quality, higher energy bills, and premature system failure.

Myth #3: Closing Vents Saves Energy

  • Some people think that closing vents in unused rooms will save energy, but this is a myth.
  • Closing vents can increase pressure in the ductwork, causing your system to work harder and potentially leading to leaks or other issues.
  • For optimal efficiency, keep all vents open and maintain proper airflow throughout your home.

Myth #4: HVAC Systems Don’t Need to Be Replaced Until They Break Down

While it’s true that HVAC systems can last for many years, waiting until they completely break down before replacing them is not a wise idea. As systems age, they become less efficient and more costly to operate. Replacing an older system with a new, energy-efficient model can save you money on energy bills and provide improved comfort in your home.
