Summer heat can be hard to deal with, and an air conditioning unit can make a huge impact in terms of how comfortable your home is. That being said, there are ways in which you can use your AC in a strategic manner. Below, Moyer’s Heating & Cooling Inc. in Prescott Valley highlights some common myths about summer cooling that we want you to be aware of.

Numbers Matters

It’s a common myth that a larger AC unit is always better. The truth is that you need to pick a unit that’s right for your space. If you get one that’s too large, things won’t be optimal. Your home will likely not cool evenly, and humidity might build up. At Moyer’s Heating & Cooling Inc., we’d be happy to recommend the right size for your place.

Another number to pay attention to is the temperature at which you set your AC. If you turn your thermostat down too far, it will have to work so hard to get to that point. This may lead to premature wear and tear. Plus, turning your thermostat down super low won’t cool your home down any faster than if you set it at a more reasonable level. There’s no way to make a home air conditioner cool a space faster.

Keep the Air Flowing

One more myth is that closing vents can lower your AC costs. This actually makes things worse for your unit. Pressure in certain areas will increase when you close vents, and as a result, the AC will have to work harder and be less efficient. Closed vents also lead to uneven cooling and over time, can damage your ductwork.
