Mythbusting: Common Misconceptions About Air Conditioning


When it comes to air conditioning, there are many myths and misconceptions that often circulate. At Ferran Services, we strive to provide accurate information and dispel these myths to ensure our customers make informed decisions about their AC units. In this blog post, we’ll address some of the most common myths and set the record straight.

Myth 1: Closing Vents in Unused Rooms Saves Energy

Many people believe that closing vents in rooms that are not being used can help save energy and reduce cooling costs. However, this is not entirely true. When you close vents, it increases the pressure in your ductwork, which can cause your AC system to work harder and potentially lead to leaks or damage.

Myth 2: Bigger is Always Better When it Comes to AC Units

  1. It’s a common misconception that a larger air conditioning unit will cool your home more effectively.
  2. In reality, an oversized unit will cycle on and off more frequently, leading to uneven cooling and higher energy bills.
  3. A properly sized AC unit, based on the square footage of your home and other factors, will provide optimal cooling while minimizing energy consumption.

Myth 3: AC Maintenance is Unnecessary

Many homeowners neglect routine maintenance for their air conditioning systems, believing that it’s unnecessary if the unit is running smoothly. However, regular maintenance is crucial for ensuring the efficiency, longevity, and proper functioning of your AC unit. Professional maintenance can identify and address potential issues before they become major problems, ultimately saving you money in the long run.


At Ferran Services, we are committed to providing our customers with accurate information and quality services. By debunking these common myths, we hope to empower you to make informed decisions about your air conditioning needs.
