Largo’s warm, tropical climate makes air conditioning a necessity. With air conditioning systems being a common topic of discussion, people often claim they know the best ways to both save money on your air conditioning bill and increase the longevity of your unit. But how can you tell if these statements are myths or facts? We’re cracking down on some of the most common myths below.
AC Units Only Cool Air
This is false! Though your system does cool air, it also reduces humidity. While it can seem like cooling is the most important factor, having a less humid home makes a huge difference in our hot St. Petersburg area.
Fans Cool the Room
Fans can make you feel cooler, but they do not have an effect on the temperature of the room. A fan is simply pushing the air around rather than changing the temperature of the air. However, with the hot temperatures, warm air often sits in our Clearwater homes, causing your space to feel stuffy. A fan can help alleviate this by moving the air around.
Your Unit Doesn’t Need a Professional Tune-Up
If you want your air conditioning unit to consistently run at its best, it needs a professional tune-up. Though there are a few things you may be able to do yourself, your unit will reach a point where it needs a professional. At Bryant Heating & Cooling, we recommend your unit is serviced twice a year. This will help increase the longevity of the unit and ultimately save you money.
