There are many myths that surround us. From the gods and goddesses to the monsters and creatures that our ancestors have made up for us to share as stories in the present, there are pretty much thousands if not millions of myths. Even our daily products such as our heating, cooling, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems have myths too and we as wise consumers should avoid believing these myths and start doing things that can actually decrease out energy consumption while still keeping comfort levels relatively high.
Some of these myths include routines that we usually do in the hopes of cutting down our energy usage and electricity bill. Keeping the temperature of your thermostat constant all day and closing the vents of HVAC systems in rooms that we do not use. These myths, despite being a usual activity actually take a toll on the performance of our HVAC systems.
Adjusting your thermostat frequently can damage your HVAC system, resulting to decrease in its efficiency and in turn increases its energy usage. But despite that, it does not fully mean your temperature constant all day. In order to optimize your energy usage and stabilize your electricity bills, you need to come up with a program that schedules your thermostats. Dial back the temperature 8 to 10 degrees for at least eight hours overnight, and for sure you’ll be able to save big over the course of the season.
The Outdoor Sensor
This is probably the easiest component of installing a new thermostat, because the new sensors wirelessly connect to your new one. But you still have to know where to put it (like on the north side of your house) and it has to connect properly. If you run into any problems getting them to link up, you’ll be calling us for assistance anyway.

Shutting down the vents of HVAC system registers if you are not using or staying one or two rooms in your house or buildings might be a good way in saving up since you are lessening the number of rooms that need to be conditioned. But in reality, you should resist the need for closing the vents as this action may force your HVAC systems to work harder than usual in order to distribute the desired air and comfort.
An HVAC zoning system (also referred to as “zoned HVAC”) is a heating and cooling system that uses dampers in the ductwork to regulate and redirect air to specific areas of the home. This allows for the creation of customized temperature zones throughout the home for increased comfort and efficiency.
Is a zoning system right for your home?
Almost every household can benefit from a zoned HVAC system. That’s because most homes have a room that’s always too hot or too cold, and family members with different temperature preferences. Zoning systems allow you to accommodate those different comfort needs, while also helping you save energy.
You should also consider zoned HVAC if you have large windows in your home, a top floor that’s always warmer than lower floors, rooms that you seldom use or that feel stuffy, or special areas like a home office or gym that need additional cooling.

You should also consider if zoning systems could solve your problem while lowering your energy bill. Zoning systems divide your home into distinct heating and cooling areas, so you’ll always be comfortable. There are numerous ways online telling us how we can install a new thermostat in our own homes by ourselves. One aspect of installing a new thermostat includes attaching the new base to a drywall is actually pretty simple for most homeowners who have had an experience with a drill and drywall anchors.
Other parts of thermostat installation, though, involve complexities like electrical wiring that you probably don’t want to learn from watching a video or reading a blog post, nor should you, for safety reasons.
