Debunking Common Myths About HVAC and Plumbing Repairs, Maintenance and Installations

I’m sure you’ve heard this one before: “You can save more money by keeping your thermostat at the same temperature all day.” False! The truth of the matter is a bit more nuanced. By properly utilizing your thermostat, particularly programmable ones, you can actually save energy and money by adjusting the temperature when you’re not home or asleep.

Myth 1: Keeping your thermostat at a constant temperature saves energy

It’s more energy-efficient to adjust your thermostat, creating a lower setting at night and when you’re out of the house. Programmable thermostats can make this a breeze, letting you set temperatures for different times and forget about it. The trick is to avoid major fluctuations in temperature. Gentle changes put less stress on your HVAC system and helps keep your energy bill down.

Myth 2: Regular plumbing maintenance isn’t necessary

Another common myth we often hear at Advanced Heating is that once your plumbing is installed, it can be left alone unless a problem arises. The truth, however, is that regular plumbing maintenance can help save you money in the long term by catching potential issues early. From checking for hidden leaks to ensuring all your fixtures are functioning optimally, regular check-ups with our team of professionals can save you a bundle on unforeseen repairs.

Myth 3: DIY HVAC Repairs are a Cost-Efficient Solution

The growing popularity of do-it-yourself (DIY) videos might make you believe that handling your HVAC repairs solo is a sound way to save money. Beware of this inaccurate assumption. The complexity of HVAC systems makes them tricky to handle without proper training or experience. Our seasoned HVAC experts at Advanced Heating spare you from additional costs you might incur from improper repairs by ensuring everything is correctly and safely done the first time.


Shaking off these common myths can go a long way toward maintaining the health of your HVAC and plumbing systems. Entrusting your homes systems to Advanced Heating not only guarantees expert service but helps ensure your systems have long and energy-efficient lives.
