AC-manifoldDo you feel like you understand how your air conditioning system works? The vast majority of people do, but in reality you might not be running your air conditioning system in the best way possible. Sometimes you don’t need a new air conditioning system or even repairs for your current air conditioning system, sometimes you just need to pay a little extra attention to how you run your air conditioning system.

Don’t Fall for these Air Conditioning Myths

There are probably a lot of air conditioning myths that you unknowingly take part in—stop this problem today.

Lower Thermostat Temperatures Make Your Home Cool Faster

So you come home from a hot day here in Florida, you rush over to your thermostat, and you turn the temperature down low. You’re doing this because you’re assuming that your air conditioning system is going to cool off faster if the temperature is lower, right?

We understand this line of thought, but the logic is wrong. Your home is never going to cool off faster if the temperature is lower—it will only cool off longer. You can think of your thermostat setting as the goal you’re setting for your air conditioner.

Your Refrigerant Levels Run Out

Your refrigerant isn’t what powers your air conditioning system so it should never “run out.” If you notice that your air conditioning system is a little low on refrigerant, it’s solely because you’re suffering from a leak somewhere in your system. You need to make sure that you have the proper air conditioning services for your home.

Bigger is Better

So you’re looking for a new air conditioning system for your home and you can’t exactly determine what the perfect size system is for your home—but bigger is always better… right? In many cases yes, but not in this one. You’re going to need a system that’s perfectly matched to your home. You’re going to experience short cycling if your system is too big for your home.

Your Air Filter Doesn’t Matter Much

Make sure that you replace the air filter in your HVAC system at least once every 1-3 months. Your air filter is in charge of keeping your air conditioner free of debris and operating efficiently. Your air filter is incredibly important and it’s one of the only things you have complete control over as a homeowner. Make sure that you contact our professional team if you need assistance with your AC system.

You Don’t Need Professional Attention

Homeowners often think that they don’t need professional attention at all or that they don’t need professional care until something goes completely haywire. Both of these assumptions are untrue. You need professional attention no matter what’s going on with your AC system—maintenance and repair services.
