Debunking Common Myths about Your HVAC system

In our daily interaction with concerned clients, we at High Altitude Heating & Air, often come across many misconceptions about heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) units. A lack of understanding and misinformation can lead to unnecessary expenses, performance issues, or even damage.

Myth #1: The Bigger the HVAC System, the Better

One of the most common myths about HVAC systems is that bigger is always better. In reality, having an oversized system can lead to inefficiency and higher energy costs. It will also cycle on and off more frequently, leading to increased wear and tear. At High Altitude Heating & Air, we conduct a thorough analysis of your home’s heating and cooling needs before recommending the right HVAC unit.

Myth #2: Set and Forget Your Thermostat

Another misconception is that setting your thermostat to a constant temperature is guaranteed to save energy. In fact, adjusting the temperature based on whether you’re home, away at work, or asleep can contribute to significant energy savings. Programmable thermostats offer the best way to manage your HVAC system effectively and efficiently.

Myth #3: Maintenance is Unnecessary Unless the System Breaks Down

This myth can potentially cost you in unnecessary repairs and replacements. Regular preventive maintenance may help extend your system’s lifespan, improve its efficiency, and save you money in the long run. We have a team of experienced technicians who can provide the necessary repair and maintenance service to keep your HVAC system running properly.

Arming yourself with the right information can go a long way in ensuring your home’s comfort and your HVAC system’s longevity. Don’t let common misconceptions steer you wrong. Trust the experts at High Altitude Heating & Air for accurate information and trusted HVAC service.
