Busting 5 popular myths about your air conditioners
Don’t fall for these myths
Summer is here and we all know what that means. Unbearable heat and of course, our ACs becoming our best friends. The first thing that comes to mind with increased usage is high bills, but that’s not necessarily the case. Just like this, there are some other common myths that are easy to fall prey to. In this article, we'll debunk five of the most popular myths about your AC, so you can cool down with confidence.
Myth: Lower temperatures means better cooling
Are you tempted to turn down the temperature on your AC as soon as it gets too hot? Don't be fooled into thinking this will cool your space any faster. Instead of lowering the temperature when it's hot, try other methods like keeping your windows closed and curtains drawn in direct sunlight or using fans to help circulate air.
Myth: The bigger the AC unit, the better the cooling
When it comes to air conditioners, the myth that bigger is better is just that – a myth! A larger AC system doesn't necessarily mean you'll get cooler temperatures in your home. Sure, it may be able to cool more quickly than a smaller unit, but its efficiency won't necessarily be any greater. Easier ways to stay comfortable during hot weather without cranking up the thermostat include closing windows and curtains when direct sunlight hits them or using fans to circulate air throughout your space.
Myth: You need to replace the refrigerant every year
It's a common misconception that you need to replace the refrigerant in your AC every year. But in reality, regular maintenance will help keep your system running well and increase its life span.
Myth: You don’t need to change the air-filters if you clean your house regularly
When it comes to keeping your AC running smoothly, there's a common myth that dusting and vacuuming your house regularly means you don't have to change the air filters. This is simply not true. Even if you keep up with regular cleaning, changing your air filter is still essential for proper AC maintenance. Not only does a dirty air filter reduce efficiency, but it also causes strain on the system itself and can lead to costly repairs in the future.

Myth: You can only use AC during summers
When it comes to air conditioning, one myth that needs debunking is that you can only use AC in the summertime. That's not true – keeping your home comfortable during colder months doesn't have to mean putting on extra layers or cranking up the heat; an AC can be used all year round! It will provide a more even temperature distribution throughout your house and condition the air by removing humidity.
So, there you have it – whether you're looking to keep cool in the summer or warm in the winter, having the right air conditioner and maintaining it properly is key.
