Debunking AC Myths for Superior Comfort

Myth: Bigger AC Units are Always Better

A common misconception is that a larger air conditioning unit will cool your home more efficiently. However, this is not always the case. An oversized AC unit can lead to short cycling, where the unit turns on and off frequently, wasting energy and failing to properly dehumidify the air. Instead, it’s essential to have a professional from Superior Comfort Inc. perform a load calculation to determine the correctly sized unit for your home.

Myth: AC Units Don’t Need Regular Maintenance

Just like any other mechanical system, air conditioners require regular maintenance to operate at peak efficiency. Neglecting maintenance can lead to:

  • Reduced efficiency and higher energy bills
  • Shortened lifespan of the unit
  • Potential breakdowns during hot summer months

Superior Comfort Inc. recommends scheduling annual tune-ups to ensure your AC unit is running optimally.

Myth: Closing Vents Will Save Energy

It’s a common belief that closing vents in unused rooms will save energy by preventing cool air from entering those spaces. However, this can actually increase energy consumption and strain your AC unit. The system is designed to distribute air evenly, and closing vents can disrupt this balance, causing the unit to work harder and potentially leading to premature failure.

By debunking these myths, Superior Comfort Inc. aims to educate homeowners and promote energy-efficient practices, ensuring customers receive reliable and cost-effective AC repair and air conditioning services.
