At Summit Heating & A/C, we understand that there are a lot of myths floating around about cooling systems in Denver, CO. Whether you’re trying to keep your home at an even temperature or wanting to save money on your summer energy bill, there are certain things you can do. Steering clear of false claims can help you keep your cooling system running smoothly and reliably. Here are three myths that have proven to be false and could even harm your cooling system.
1. Closing Vents Will Reduce Your Energy Bill
If you have a forced air system in your home, closing your vents won’t reduce the amount of cool air that your system will produce. While it will keep certain rooms from cooling down, the air will be redirected to other areas of your home. Blocked vents can change how air moves through a system and end up causing issues with your cooling system.
2. Turning Your Air Conditioner on Higher Will Speed the Cooling of a Home
While you might be tempted to turn your air conditioner on as high as it will go when you step into a warm house, it won’t actually cause your home to cool down any faster. Your system will produce the same amount of cool air regardless of the temperature that you’re aiming for. You might end up wasting energy by having to change your thermostat after it gets too cold in your home.
3. Energy-Efficient Air Conditioners Will Always Save You Money
A modern and energy-efficient air conditioner can produce more cold air per unit of energy as long as it’s hooked up correctly. An air conditioning professional can install your AC unit and ensure that the proper parts are used and that your system is running as efficiently as possible.
