Understanding Your Furnace and Air Conditioning System
Are you contemplating replacing your furnace with Dycus Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc.? Or perhaps you’re entangled in the web of perplexing myths about AC units? We are here to clear the air and debunk those fallacies that might be marring your judgment or causing unnecessary panic.
Myth 1: The bigger your AC unit, the better
One of the many misconceptions surrounding AC units that we often encounter is “The bigger, the better.” The fact is, an oversized AC fails to properly dehumidify your space, leading to uncomfortable and sticky conditions. It also frequently cycles on and off, consuming more energy, resulting in inefficient operation and potentially leading to system breakdowns.
Myth 2: All Furnace Replacements are Equal
Many homeowners believe that replacing their old furnace with a new one of the same size is adequate. However, the furnace that was initially installed might have been too large or too small for your home. The key is to have a professional technician perform a thorough heat loss and heat gain calculation in your home. It’s not simply a matter of one-size-fits-all when it comes to furnace replacements.
Myth 3: You only need to replace your Furnace Filter once a year
While high-quality furnace filters brag about an operational lifespan of up to a year, it is recommended to replace your filter every 90 days or less. Especially if you have pets or live where dust, allergens, and air pollutants are prevalent, changing your filter will benefit your furnace health and overall indoor air quality.
