Separating Fiction from Fact: Debunking Heating and Cooling Myths


In the world of heating and cooling, myths and misconceptions often circulate, leading to confusion and inefficient practices. At Hader Heating & Cooling, we believe in providing our customers with accurate information to ensure their comfort and energy efficiency. In this blog post, we’ll debunk some common myths related to air conditioning service, repair, and installation.

Myth #1: Closing vents in unused rooms saves energy.

Many homeowners believe that closing vents in unused rooms will save energy by reducing the workload on their HVAC system. However, this is a misconception. HVAC systems are designed to distribute air evenly throughout the entire home, and closing vents can actually increase energy consumption by creating pressure imbalances and forcing the system to work harder.

Myth #2: Air conditioning units only need maintenance when there’s a problem.

Neglecting regular maintenance on your air conditioning unit is a recipe for disaster. Just like any other mechanical system, air conditioners require routine care to operate efficiently and prevent breakdowns. Skipping annual tune-ups and cleanings can lead to decreased performance, higher energy bills, and potentially costly repairs down the line.

Myth #3: Bigger is always better when it comes to air conditioning units.

While it may seem logical to assume that a larger air conditioning unit will cool your home more effectively, this is not necessarily true. An oversized unit will cool the space too quickly, leading to frequent cycling on and off, which can waste energy and fail to dehumidify the air properly. Proper sizing is crucial for optimal efficiency and comfort.


At Hader Heating & Cooling, we strive to provide our customers with accurate information and dispel common myths related to HVAC systems. By understanding the facts, you can make informed decisions about air conditioner service, repair, and installation, ensuring your home stays comfortable while minimizing energy costs. If you have any questions or concerns, our team of experts is always ready to assist you.
