Don’t Get Fooled By These Misconceptions!
Were you a victim of an April Fool’s joke earlier this month?
Our team wants to make sure you don’t get fooled again by falling for false information about your HVAC system. That’s why we’re busting the three most common misconceptions related to your heating and cooling system.
Myth 1: No Problems? No Need to Reach Out to Timo’s!
If nothing is wrong with your HVAC system, there’s no need to call us. Right? Wrong! Keeping your air conditioner or heating system out of mind until a problem arises is a big mistake! Your system requires annual heating and AC maintenance in Palm Springs, CA, and nearby to ensure your unit continues operating at its very best.
Although your HVAC system is durable, it shouldn’t be neglected. As your system operates day in and day out, friction, heat, metal fatigue and other natural forces cause wear and tear on critical components. Plus, accumulated dirt and debris, faulty parts and failure to address necessary repairs accelerate this process, causing your system’s performance, reliability and efficiency to fade.
Routine maintenance helps counteract this damage. It also:
- Increases your home’s energy efficiency
- Lowers your utility bills
- Leads to fewer service calls
- Adds years to your system’s lifespan
- Improves your indoor air quality
- … And so much more!
Myth 2: The Lower You Set the Thermostat, the Faster It Will Cool Your Home
Turning your thermostat lower than your ideal indoor temperature will NOT make your home cool down faster. Your air conditioner works by being either on or off. There is no speed setting. So, when you set your thermostat to a specific temperature, your cooling system will work until your indoor climate reaches that goal. It doesn’t speed up the cooling process based on the number on the thermostat. Rather, the lower you set the temperature, the longer your system will operate.
Myth 3: When It Comes to Your Unit’s Size, Bigger Is Better
You may think the bigger your HVAC system is the better its cooling capabilities. But that’s not always true. Operating a system that’s too big for the space it’s cooling causes it to cycle on and off too quickly and too often, which, in turn, will cost you more money and cause greater wear and tear on your unit. On the other hand, if your system is too small, it will overwork itself trying—and failing—to meet your cooling demands.
You need to make sure your system is properly sized for your home. This is Timo’s specialty. Our techs will work diligently to find the right system for your home, taking these crucial factors into consideration: the age of your home, its square footage, your climate zone, how many people live in your house and more.
