Dispelling Common Air Conditioning Myths


When it comes to air conditioning systems, there are numerous myths and misconceptions that persist. At Carden Heating & Cooling, we strive to educate our customers and separate fact from fiction. In this blog post, we’ll debunk some of the most common myths surrounding air conditioning.

Myth 1: Closing Vents in Unused Rooms Saves Energy

Many people believe that closing vents in unused rooms can reduce energy consumption and lower utility bills. However, this is a myth. Modern air conditioning systems are designed to operate with a balanced airflow throughout the entire system. Closing vents can disrupt this balance, causing the system to work harder and potentially leading to premature wear and tear.

Myth 2: Bigger is Always Better

When it comes to air conditioning units, bigger doesn’t necessarily mean better. An oversized unit may cool your space quickly, but it will also cycle on and off more frequently, leading to inconsistent temperatures and higher energy bills. A properly sized unit, tailored to your home’s specific needs, will operate more efficiently and provide consistent comfort.

Myth 3: Air Conditioning Units Don’t Need Regular Maintenance

  • Regular maintenance is crucial for ensuring the optimal performance and longevity of your air conditioning system.
  • Neglecting maintenance can lead to decreased efficiency, higher energy bills, and potentially costly repairs down the line.
  • Carden Heating & Cooling recommends scheduling annual tune-ups to keep your system running smoothly.
