Myth: Closing Vents Will Save Energy

One widespread myth is that closing vents in unused rooms can save energy and lower utility bills. However, this practice can actually increase energy consumption and strain your HVAC system. When vents are closed, it creates an imbalance in the system, causing it to work harder to maintain the desired temperature throughout the house.

Myth: Bigger is Always Better for HVAC Systems

  • Contrary to popular belief, installing an oversized HVAC system is not more efficient or cost-effective.
  • An improperly sized system will cycle on and off more frequently, leading to uneven temperatures, increased wear and tear, and higher energy costs.
  • Proper sizing based on square footage and insulation levels is crucial for optimal performance and efficiency.

Myth: HVAC Maintenance is Unnecessary

Neglecting regular maintenance on your HVAC system is a surefire way to shorten its lifespan and reduce efficiency. At Morrison, Inc., we recommend scheduling annual tune-ups to ensure your system is running at peak performance, identify potential issues early, and extend the life of your investment.

By debunking these common myths, we hope to empower our customers in the Mid-Ohio Valley with the knowledge to make informed decisions about their heating, ventilation, and air conditioning needs.
