Myths Busted AC Services Green Valley


Green Valley Cooling & Heating is a trusted name when it comes to AC services in the region. However, there are several myths surrounding air conditioning systems that need to be debunked. In this blog post, we’ll address some common misconceptions and set the record straight.

Myth 1: Bigger AC Units Cool Better

Many homeowners believe that a larger air conditioning unit will cool their home more effectively. This is not necessarily true. The size of the AC unit should be determined by the square footage of your space and its insulation levels. An oversized unit will cool the area too quickly, leading to frequent cycling on and off, wasting energy, and creating uneven cooling.

Myth 2: Closing Vents in Unused Rooms Saves Energy

While it may seem logical to close vents in rooms that are not being used, this practice can actually increase your energy costs. Air conditioning systems are designed to distribute air evenly throughout the ducting system. Closing vents can create an imbalance, causing the system to work harder and potentially leading to premature failure.

Myth 3: AC Filters Only Need to be Changed Once a Year

  • The frequency of filter changes depends on several factors, including:
  • – The type of filter
  • – The presence of pets
  • – Outdoor air quality
  • – The number of occupants in the home

As a general rule, Green Valley Cooling & Heating recommends changing filters every 3 to 6 months for optimal system performance and air quality.
