Demystifying HVAC Misconceptions


Welcome to our blog, where we aim to shed light on the myths surrounding efficient climate control. At Ware’s Heating & Cooling, we understand the importance of providing accurate information to our valued customers. In this post, we’ll debunk a common misconception about HVAC systems.

Myth: Closing Vents Saves Energy

Many homeowners believe that closing vents in unused rooms can reduce energy consumption and lower utility bills. However, this is a widespread misconception. Here’s why:

  • HVAC systems are designed to operate with a balanced airflow throughout the entire duct system. When vents are closed, the system must work harder to distribute air, leading to increased energy consumption and potential damage to the equipment.
  • Closed vents can also cause uneven temperatures and pressure imbalances, resulting in uncomfortable living conditions and potential moisture issues.

The most energy-efficient approach is to keep all vents open and properly seal any air leaks in the ductwork. This ensures optimal airflow, consistent temperatures, and reduced strain on your HVAC system.
