With over 35 years of experience providing the best in air conditioning services to our clients, our team at AC Pros of Florida Inc. has learned a lot about air conditioning systems and how they operate. We’ve also heard a lot of the same rumors or misunderstandings from customers, and we want to make sure our clients know what is truth and what is myth. Here are a few of the most common myths.

Four Common Air Conditioning Myths

  • Myth #1: To cool your home faster, turn the air conditioner down very low. Your thermostat will work at the same rate no matter where you set the temperature, so setting it lower than you want the temperature to be is unnecessary and just causes the equipment to work harder than it really needs to.
  • Myth #2: You should close the vents for rooms you don’t use. Your air conditioning system is designed to distribute air throughout your home, and closing a vent can disrupt that balance.
  • Myth #3: Bigger air conditioning units work better. The size of your air conditioning unit will depend on the size of the area its servicing. Selecting a unit that is too big would use more power than needed. Your technician can help you select the best sized unit for optimal efficiency.
  • Myth #4: Your thermostat’s placement doesn’t matter. It is best for your thermostat to be placed on an inside wall and in an area that will not be impacted by direct sunlight or drafts from windows or doors. This will ensure that your thermostat’s readings are accurate and that your home is being cooled properly.
