When it comes to your home’s heating, ventilation, and air conditioning installation, there are plenty of myths and misconceptions floating around. At T-Mark Plumbing, Heating & Cooling, we’re dedicated to setting the record straight and providing reliable information to our customers. Let’s debunk one common myth:

Myth: Closing vents will save energy and money.

Many homeowners believe that closing vents in unused rooms can help reduce energy costs. However, this is a myth. Your HVAC system is designed to operate with a balanced air flow throughout your home. When you close vents, it disrupts this balance, causing your system to work harder and potentially leading to higher energy bills.

Instead of closing vents, consider these energy-saving tips:

  1. Properly insulate your home to prevent heat loss or gain.
  2. Install a programmable thermostat to regulate temperatures when you’re away or asleep.
  3. Schedule regular air conditioning maintenance to ensure optimal efficiency.
