As a homeowner, you have likely heard many myths and facts about keeping your home cool. Read on to learn more about these truths and falsehoods.
1. Leaving a ceiling fan on will cool a room, especially if you leave it running all day when you aren't at home.
MYTH. A fan is designed to cool your skin, not the air. They are not able to lower the temperatures in the room. A fan simply circulates the air in the room to help cool you off. Leaving it run all day is wasting electricity.
2. Buying an energy efficient air conditioner will instantaneously lower my monthly energy bills.
MYTH. Even the most energy efficient AC unit can cost you money if it isn't the right size for your home, or if you have clogged air ducts, deteriorating insulation, or air leaks in your doors and windows. A trained and professional AC contractor will be able to help you choose the perfect-sized cooling system for your home.
3. The lower you set your thermostat, the quicker your home will cool off.
MYTH. An AC is going to deliver the same amount of cool air, regardless of how low you set the thermostat. It will take time for it to reach the point at which you have set the temperature as, and this may take awhile, costing you a ton of money in energy use.
4. Duct tape will seal my ducts and prevent cool air loss.
MYTH. While duct tape does have "duct" in the name, it's really not going to do a great job at sealing your ducts. Plus, it isn't going to be able to keep dirt, dust, and debris out. The tape will eventually get old and fall off.
5. There isn't any benefit to adjusting the thermostat when you know you aren't going to be home during the day, or when you are going on vacation.
MYTH. When you reduce the temperature on your thermostat when you know nobody is going to be home, it will help your air conditioner to run less, and thus, this will save you money on your monthly energy bills.
