In this blog post, we’ll debunk a common myth related to air conditioning installation and maintenance.

Myth: Closing Vents in Unused Rooms Saves Energy

Many homeowners believe that closing vents in unused rooms can save energy and reduce cooling costs. However, this is a widespread misconception. Here’s the truth:

  • Air conditioning systems are designed to distribute cool air evenly throughout a home or building.
  • Closing vents can disrupt the system’s balanced airflow, leading to increased pressure and strain on the AC unit.
  • This added strain can cause the system to work harder, leading to higher energy consumption and potential damage over time.

Instead of closing vents, it’s recommended to maintain proper airflow throughout your home or office. If you have specific cooling needs for certain areas, consider investing in zoning systems or adjusting your thermostat settings accordingly.
