Debunking Myths About Home Comfort Systems


At Reding, Inc, we strive to provide our customers with reliable and efficient home comfort solutions. However, there are several myths circulating about these systems that can lead to misconceptions and misinformation. In this blog post, we aim to debunk some of these myths and shed light on the truth.

Myth 1: Home Comfort Systems are Expensive to Operate

One of the most common myths is that home comfort systems, such as heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) units, are costly to operate. While it’s true that these systems require energy to run, modern units are designed to be energy-efficient, reducing overall operating costs. By properly maintaining and regularly servicing your system, you can optimize its performance and ensure it operates at peak efficiency.

Myth 2: Closing Vents in Unused Rooms Saves Energy

Some homeowners believe that closing vents in unused rooms can save energy and lower utility bills. However, this is a misconception. HVAC systems are designed to work with a balanced airflow, and closing vents can disrupt this balance, causing the system to work harder and potentially leading to increased energy consumption and wear and tear on the equipment.

Myth 3: Bigger is Always Better for HVAC Systems

Many people assume that larger HVAC systems are more efficient and effective at maintaining a comfortable indoor environment. This is not always the case. An oversized system can lead to short-cycling, where the system turns on and off frequently, wasting energy and failing to properly dehumidify the air. It’s essential to have a professional assess your home’s specific needs and recommend the appropriate size for your HVAC system.


At Reding, Inc, we are committed to providing our customers with accurate information and dispelling myths surrounding home comfort systems. By understanding the truth behind these myths, you can make informed decisions and enjoy a comfortable living environment while minimizing energy costs and environmental impact.
