Myth #1: Closing Vents Reduces Energy Costs

This myth is commonly heard within the air conditioning industry. Shutting vents can actually result in your air conditioner working less efficiently, as it does not allow the air to flow through your home the way it is designed to. If there are sections of your interior you would like to keep shut off from your air conditioning, professionals can help.

Myth #2: Not Using Your Air Conditioner Lengthens Its Life Span

Although you may think that not using your air conditioning system will extend its lifespan, this is not the case. Think of your air conditioner as a car, not using it for a while is not good for it. Although using your air conditioner can cause wear and tear after time, not using it can result in other problems which could require repair.

Myth #3: A Service is Only Needed if an Issue Arises

This is a popular myth which continues to circle the air. Regular maintenance checks and services keeps your air conditioning system working properly and efficiently. Regular services are also a great way to identify any problems which may arise or have gone undetected.

Myth #4: Ceiling Fans Work Just Like an Air Conditioner

Although this may seem true, ceiling fans do not cool the air, they simply move the air around. In hot conditions, ceiling fans can cool you down, but they do not bring the temperature down within the room.

Myth #5: Using Your Air Conditioner Can Give You a Cold

Colds are caused by viruses, not the temperature. This means the cool air from your air conditioning system cannot give you a cold illness.

These are just a few of the many myths involving air conditioners. These products are an essential tool for everyday life. At Cool Tech Air Conditioning, we offer a huge range of air conditioners which suit everybody’s needs.
