How much do you know about your air conditioner? If you don’t know a lot, you are not alone. Most homeowners are not knowledgeable about cooling systems. Therefore, it is no surprise that people believe so many air conditioning myths. We have taken the time to debunk these myths.
Myth #1: Ceiling Fans Cool The Air
Unfortunately, ceiling fans do not make the air in your home any cooler. However, if you run your air conditioner and fan simultaneously, it will help circulate cool air more efficiently.
Myth #2: Where An A/C Unit is Installed Does Not Matter
This is simply not true. When it comes to where your air conditioner is installed, location is key. Air conditioners should not be installed facing direct sunlight. They are usually installed on the north or east side of a house.
Myth #3: You Don’t Need To Have Your A/C Serviced Unless Something is Wrong
This is probably the biggest myth of them all. A lot of homeowners forget that air conditioners need continuous maintenance to stay in tip top shape. As a rule of thumb, air conditioners should be professionally serviced once a year.
We hope that set the record straight on the most common air conditioner myths. Still have questions about the ins and outs of your cooling system? The knowledgeable NATE certified technicians at Air Treatment Company will have an answer for you. Call (703) 270-0881 today to schedule an appointment.
