MYTH: Duct tape is good for sealing ducts.

FACT: Duct tapes has many great uses. But despite the name, it actually does a pretty lousy job at sealing ducts. It doesn’t work well in dirty or dusty conditions…and you can’t get dirtier or dustier than an air duct. Also, the tape tends to fall off as it ages and the adhesive dries out. Mastic tape sticks, seals and insulates much better.

MYTH: Price is the most important factor when making a purchase of a new HVAC system.

FACT: Price plays a significant role in most people decision making. However, the most important long term factor that you should consider when purchasing a new HVAC system is who you choose for the installation. A energy efficient and properly sized system that has had all of the available rebates and incentives applied and then financed (as needed) by preferred sources will provide you not only the best deal when installed, but will perform reliably and cost less to run for the life of the system. If a system costs $500 more upfront but will save you that much or more each year. We will let you decide which option is better.

MYTH: There’s no benefit in adjusting your thermostat when you don’t need heating or cooling…such as at night or when nobody’s home.

FACT: Research shows that the longer your house stays at a reduced temperature when heating or at an increased temperature when cooling, the more energy and money you will save. This is because heating and cooling cost depends mostly on the difference between indoor and outdoor temperature. When you adjust the temperature down in the winter or up in the summer, you simply reduce this temperature difference. In fact, setting your temperature back 10 or more degrees for 8 hours while you sleep or go to work can reduce your energy bill by 5-15%. A programmable thermostat can adjust temperatures automatically for you.

MYTH: Leaving a fan running in a room when it’s empty will allow the AC unit to cool the room faster.

FACT: A fan moves air against a your skin, making YOU feel cooler. However, the actual air temperature isn’t lowered. What you are doing is wasting energy. You should use fans when your actually in the room.

MYTH: You should turn the AC off all day if you are not at home.

FACT: When it is hot and humid, it is advisable to keep the AC running when you aren’t home to reduce humidity and allow the system to cool to a comfortable level in a reasonable time. If the outside temperature and humidity don’t warrant this, then there is no benefit of keeping the AC unit running continuously – but there is definitely reason to run the AC on hot and humid days when you aren’t home.

MYTH: For faster cooling, set the temperature below what you want it to be.

FACT: Sounds logical, but AC systems cool at a set rate. You can’t make it cool faster by setting the temperature lower.

MYTH: Filters don’t really need to be changed regularly.

FACT: A dirty filter constricts air flow making your system work harder. If there is a common theme here, it is that regular maintenance will improve system performance and extend the life of your system. Regular filters should be changed every month in summer months and every 4-6 weeks during winter season.
