Air Conditioning Myths by Treat’s Heating & Cooling

There are many myths out there about keeping the cold air inside your home.  Treat’s Heating & Cooling would like to share some of these with you.

  • Turning off the air conditioning while away saves energy – Turning the air conditioning off while you are away will only make your home much warmer.  It requires more energy to bring the temperature back down to a comfortable level when you return.  By adjusting your thermostat up a few degrees when you are away this will contain the cool air until you return without driving energy costs higher.
  • Purchasing an energy efficient air conditioning system will save money on utility bills – If your unit is not sized correctly and is over-sized, this could end up costing you more money.  A unit that is too large for the home will cycle on and off repeatedly.
  • Leaving a ceiling fan on will keep the room cool – Fans do create a wind-chill effect as the air comes in contact with your skin so you will feel cooler.  The ceiling fan does not reduce the actual temperature, you are just burning energy.
