Busted! Don’t Believe These HVAC Myths!

HVAC technicians are skilled professionals who install, repair, and maintain heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration systems that control the quality and temperature of the air inside residential and commercial buildings. They specialize in installing, maintaining, repairing, or replacing air conditioners, climate control systems, heating equipment, ventilation units, refrigeration equipment, and more.

However, as most consumers are unaware of the intricacies of the HVAC industry, it’s easy for them to fall for myths about heating, cooling, and ventilation systems, such as DIY installation being simple and mistakes like maintenance failures.

To help you steer clear of false facts and to ensure you get the best use of your HVAC systems, Thermokline Mechanical has debunked three of the most widely believed myths about this industry.

Myth 1: With advanced systems, there is no need for regular maintenance

Because of the “plug and play” abilities of so many appliances nowadays, we often neglect the importance of maintenance. You should treat your HVAC system like you would your car. Regular maintenance helps with efficiency and longevity, and at Thermokline Mechanical, we provide detailed service agreements outlying proper care and scheduling to ensure your equipment maximizes its potential.

Myth 2: Bigger is better

Big and shiny HVAC equipment looks good on Facebook and other “keeping up with the Jones” social media but can be inefficient. We suggest you purchase the equipment fit for your home! Big systems equal significant expenditure and energy used unnecessarily. Our professional technicians’ ability to communicate in a comprehensible manner will provide you with information and, perhaps, a better perspective.

Myth 3: Thermostat placement does not matter

Clients often compromise on the thermostat placement as an unexpected item on the wall upsets the aesthetic they are trying to achieve. When you choose us, we let our customers know that the ideal spot for your thermostat is on an interior wall placed away from windows and installed away from direct sunlight and appliances. We offer a simple explanation of the function and importance of the thermostat to raise awareness.
