Dispelling Common AC Installation Myths

Dispelling Common AC Installation Myths


When it comes to professional air conditioning installation, HVAC installation, and AC repair, there are several myths and misconceptions that can lead to confusion and poor decision-making. In this blog post, we aim to debunk some of the most common myths surrounding these services offered by C. Albert Matthews.

Myth 1: Bigger is Always Better

One prevalent myth is that a larger air conditioning unit is always better for cooling a space. However, this is not the case. An oversized unit will cycle on and off frequently, leading to inefficient operation, uneven cooling, and higher energy bills. The key is to have a properly sized unit that matches your home’s specific cooling needs.

Myth 2: HVAC Installation is a DIY Project

  • While some homeowners may be tempted to install their HVAC systems themselves to save money, this is a myth that can lead to costly mistakes.
  • HVAC installation requires specialized knowledge, tools, and experience to ensure proper sizing, airflow, and efficiency.
  • Improper installation can lead to safety hazards, system failures, and voided warranties.

Myth 3: AC Repair is Unnecessary if the Unit is Still Running

Many homeowners believe that if their air conditioning unit is still running, there’s no need for AC repair. However, this myth can lead to higher energy bills, reduced efficiency, and eventually, complete system failure. Regular maintenance and prompt repairs can extend the lifespan of your AC unit and prevent more costly issues down the line.
